Classy effort on Friday (20 November) by the David Peoples trained Bel Esprit mare, My Tinkerbel who led throughout to score over 1100m at the Sunshine Coast.
Bred by Richard Pietrykowski, My Tinkerbel is out of the Centaine mare, Boondock and hails from the immediate family of Golden Slipper winner Catbird and Group winning 2YO and Eliza Park sire, Danbird.
Bel Esprit Winners Club monitor, Brian Donohoe picks up the tale: “There is a bit of history around this Bel Esprit.
She was sold at the 2006 Inglis June Weanling for $10,000 and then resold at the 2007 MM National Yearling for $175,000.
Off to Tasmania, she had her first start for trainer Dean Wells where she finished 7th of 9 in a 3YO Maiden.
Next, she bobbed up at Coloundra for her present trainer where she was only 3.6 lengths from the winner and 2.5 lengths away at her next start.
She showed today that there are a lot more wins in store and her breeding will make her valuable in the future.
