Interested in SW's thoughts, if any, on Australian Bloodstock's recent acquisitions, Brave Smash and Hallelujah Boy.
Mr. Shimakawa off loading some more stock it seems. He kept a share in Tosen Stardom but not aware of the details here.
BS is the better of the two and I have seen more of BS than HB. Neither lived up to their billing or aspirations but if I was to choose one over the other it would be BS.
1600m looks their ideal trip. This was the first(from memory) that Shimakawa started racing his own bred stock. All other horses he owns in partnership, usually with Yoshida 50/50 race under Tosen name(maybe not all but most).
They could reach G level in Oz but don't see them as G1.
