Bel Esprit colt, Belgietto, has come a long way in a month, having his first start at Bairnsdale on 4 October before winning, three starts later, at Seymour on 11 November.
It was a remembrance day for connections to remember as the colt had been knocking on the door with a length fourth at Cranbourne on 15 October followed by a head third at Ballarat on 2 November after his ‘so so’ debut.
Bred by Manny Gotis, Belgietto was subsequently sold by Eliza Park as agent at last year’s Magic Millions Horses in Training Sale on the Gold Coast for $100,000 and is now in the hands of Moe mentor Peter Gelagotis.
Peter is certainly guiding this colt a treat and a city campaign appears to be on the cards.
Belgietto is a half brother to four other winners including the stakes placed Radio Song while their dam Adagietto (by Sackford), is a dual stakes winner in Melbourne and half sister to Moonee Valley stakes winner and multiple Group One placed, Captiva.
