Brazen Beau sires his first winner with victory for Tassort at Rosehill

First-season stallion and Champion sprinter Brazen Beau, got his stud career off to a spectacular start with the victory of Tassort at Rosehill on Saturday, 24 November.

Only the fourth Brazen Beau two-year-old to go to the races, the regally bred Tassort scorched to a five-and-a-quarter- length debut success in the Golden Gift, becoming his sire’s first winner.

Tassort is the fifth foal to race, and fifth to win, out of the Exceed And Excel mare Essaouira, also dam of Australian G1 winners Alizee and Darley stallion Astern.

Ridden by James McDonald, Tassort was positioned behind the leader in a small field and once finding daylight at the final furlong marker, he surged to the lead and ran on superbly to win easily.

Brazen Beau established himself as the Champion sprinter of his generation in Australia, winning twice at G1 and twice at G2 level. He was also a close second in the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. He sired his first Black Type performer last weekend, when First Dawn took third in the Listed Merson Cooper Stakes.

Brazen Beau stands at Dalham Hall Stud at a fee of £7,000, October 1, Special Live Foal.
