Bel Esprit is a seriously good stallion and so, it seems, is his colt from Bellotto mare Bellain.
Seriously Good (by Bel Esprit) topped the first session of the Magic Millions Horses in Training Sale at the Gold Coast yesterday, bringing a winning bid of $360,000 from Victorian trainer Peter Morgan.
Bred by Queensland farm, Jonel Park Thoroughbreds and originally sold at this year’s Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale to Washpool Thoroughbreds, Seriously Good was the talk of the complex.
A delighted Morgan revealed that he was over the moon with his purchase: “He’s a very nice colt … if you believe what they are telling me, he’s a very cheap horse.
“He breezed up nicely and is a great prospect.”
The Kilmore based Morgan added that the colt – who is out of winning half sister to stakes winner Volare and hails from the family of Group One winners Sharpen Up and Rarotonga Treaty - would be racing “sooner rather than later”.
“I will get him home and give him a little break – but then get him into the stables and we might set him for the ($2 million) Magic Millions Classic (in January).”
