Tom's d'Etat

SMART STRIKE - JULIA TUTTLE,
by
GIANT'S CAUSEWAY, 2013

Grade 1-Winning Millionaire
by Smart Strike

"Tom's d'Etat is that rare racehorse who was born and bred to be a stallion and has compiled the race record that only very best racehorses achieve.  His pedigree demands attention as a stallion prospect - by an elite stallion and proven sire of elite sires in Smart Strike, with an elite broodmare sire in Giant's Causeway and out of a half sister to an elite stallion in Candy Ride.  These credentials in and of themselves would have justified a career at stud.  That he backed up an elite pedigree with an elite racetrack career, running nine consecutive triple digit Beyers, makes him one of the most compelling stallion prospects in recent memory."
-Tom Ryan

“He’s by a true sire of sires in Smart Strike. He reminds me of Speightstown because he keeps getting better with age. If you’re trying to win races at the top level, Tom’s d’Etat is the horse you need to breed to.”
