Flashy Filly For Smarty Jones

Flash-Mash Giants-Causeway---Listed 04-21-12 KEE Under-RailSMARTY JONES's 4-year-old daughter FLASH MASH has taken to the turf in splendid fashion, gaining her third win in five starts on the surface as she got up late to score by a half length in Keeneland's $100,000 Giant’s Causeway S. at five and a half furlongs on April 21.  

Owned by Prime Equestrian S.A.R.L. and trained by Michael Stidham, the chestnut filly recorded her first stakes victory in her fifth win in nine lifetime starts. Her only other start of the year saw her finish third in Fair Grounds's Pan Zareta S. in January, also at five and a half furlongs on the turf.  

With the victory, Flash Mash increased her earnings to $196,316. Bred by Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings LLC, she is the fifth stakes winner out of the Miswaki mare Magical Flash.

SMARTY JONES has now sired 11 stakes winners in his first four crops to race, and is also represented this year by Triple Crown nominee ISN'T HE CLEVER. The Kentucky Derby/Preakness winning champ has progeny earnings in excess of $1.2 million to date in 2012, and is well on his way to another splendid season!
