Value Proposition proved to be the latest in an ultra-talented arsenal of overseas purchases by the Chad Brown barn and ran to strong backing with a very impressive debut score at Belmont to become a ‘TDN Rising Star’.

A half-brother to 2016 G1 Prix de l’Opera and G1 Darley Prix Jean Romanet heroine Speedy Boarding (GB) (Sharmadal), the dark bay was bought for 400,000gns at the 2017 Tattersalls October Sale, the same auction where Brown picked up undefeated sensation Newspaperofrecord (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) for this owner and two-for-two ‘Rising Star’ Demarchelier (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) for Peter Brant.

Bet hard throughout to be a 3-4 chalk at the off, Value Proposition settled in sixth at the rail, well behind splits of :24.98 and :50.82 over boggy ground. Picking it up quickly three deep midway around the far turn, he swept to the front with minimal urging at the top of the lane. Challenged by second choice Downside Risk (Lonhro {Aus}) outside the eighth pole, Value Proposition soon discarded that foe and re-broke to notch a dazzling 4 1/4-length success. Downside Risk was clear for the place. The winner’s third dam is G1SW Milligram (GB). Dash To The Front is responsible for a yearling colt by Lope de Vega.
