The victory of Silver Bullion in the Kensington Stakes-LR at Flemington on Saturday (16 January) has boosted his sire Bel Esprit’s stakes winners tally to eight and is his second black type winner in a week following Beltrois’ capture of the LT Cleary Stakes-LR at Caulfield.
Bel Esprit is clearly one of the nation’s most exciting sires and averaged over $65,000 for five yearlings sold at last week’s Gold Coast Magic Millions, with plenty more to come at sales the length and breadth of Australasia.
Apart from 30 youngsters entered for the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale (1-4 March), including a half brother to Group winning 2YO Delago Bolt (Lot 4), Bel Esprit will also have a half brother to recent Perth Cup-G2 winner Lords Ransom sell at the Perth Magic Millions on Tuesday 28 January (Lot 184) and a half brother to last season’s NZ 2000 Guineas-G1 winner Tell a Tale at the New Zealand Premier on 2 February (Lot 332).
