Lethal Blast ran on three occasions last season, showing ability despite obvious greenness on debut at Windsor and then displaying blistering early speed at Wolverhampton second time out. On that occasion she led for the best part of five furlongs before tiring late on.
She has now earned a rating of 47 and the progression she has made over the winter suggests that she can make a mockery of that mark, before racking up a sequence of wins later in the year.
She is a daughter of the top-class sprinter Lethal Force, who progressed throughout his career and won the Grp-1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes and Grp-1 July Cup as a four-year-old.
He is now responsible as sire for the Grp-2 Richmond Stakes winner and Grp-1 placed Golden Horde, the Grp-2 placed Konchek, the Grp-3 placed pair Mokaatil and Would Be King, plus numerous Listed winners.
Lethal Blast is out of the Exchange Rate mare Having A Blast, who was a $180,000 purchase as a two-year-old before going on to score in conditions company in France. She also ran numerous creditable races in stakes company.
Having A Blast’s only other runner to date is the four-year-oldcolt Blast Off, who has won two races in Australia. The extended family is one of genuine quality, featuring the US Grade-1 winner Mitchell Road and the Grade-3 winner and multiple-times Grade-1 placed Breaking Lucky.
Lethal Blast is a lovely type who has excellent prospects this season and beyond. Don’t miss out on your share!
