Eliza Park’s sales & noms man, Mark Lindsay, loves a punt. He also loves a beer and the All Blacks, but that’s another story.
Rarely does a racehorse by an Eliza Park stallion do the rounds without ‘Nugget’ casting an eye over his or her performance and he’s given the big thumbs up to Beltonic’s fourth – beaten 0.9 lengths – over 1011m at Yarra Valley on Tuesday (29 December).
I could wax lyrical on how the debutant was further back than Walla Walla at one stage before flying home with a rail hugger, but best you see for yourself by clicking here.
Trained by John Symons & Sheila Laxon (John also trained Beltonic’s sire, Bel Esprit), Beltonic is out of the Kenny’s Best Pal mare Carbonated and was sold to John for $36,000 by Eliza Park at the 2007 Inglis Great Southern Weanling Sale at Oaklands Junction.
Bred by Len Rhodes, Beltonic is a half brother to exciting God’s Own 2YO Onamissionfromgod, out of a half sister to stakes winners Intelligent Star and Blaze The Turf (dam of Melbourne stakes winner Soleil), plus the unraced Aerate’s Pick, dam of recent Group Two winner Ortensia.
