Boom 3YO filly Smart Melody has sadly died after battling a colic related illness.

Smart Melody won her first five career starts including the Group Two Thousand Guineas Prelude before jumping as the short priced favourite in the Thousand Guineas where she finished seventh behind Amphitrite.

Trained by Kris Lees, Smart Melody had only last week returned to pre-training after a spring campaign that stamped her as a horse of the future.

Lees confirmed the death of one of his stable stars on social media.

“It is with a heavy heart we announce the loss of Smart Melody today to a colic-related illness,” the stable posted on Twitter.

Smart Melody was owned by prominent Filipino businessman Eduardo Cojuangco and raced under his famous Gooree Stud banner.

The filly was in light work at Cojuangco’s Gooree Park property ahead of a return to Lees’ Newcastle stable.
