PROFILE: Brazen Beau

Leading second-season sire

Champion sprinter and a standout racehorse of his generation, the best son of I Am Invincible and a stallion whose yearlings have commanded seven-figures, and the leading second season sire by Stakes winners.

Brazen Beau established clear superiority as a racehorse winning the two best sprint races of their time in Australia, the G1 Newmarket Handicap and the G1 Coolmore Stud Stakes, both down the Flemington straight course. As a three-year-old winner of the Newmarket he followed the lead of his fellow Darley stallion Exceed And Excel. He also finished second in three G1s, most notably the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2015. At stud his stature has grown in each of his first three seasons and halfway into the 2019-20 racing year he stood as Australia’s leading second-crop stallion by winners.

  • Brazen Beau – Just Discreet colt sold in 2019 $1.15m at Inglis Easter Sale;
