Well done to Brian and Peter Donohoe, part-breeders of the prolific Bel Esprit first cropper, Spirited Halo, who recorded his fifth career victory at Sandown on Wednesday (10 March).
As Brian points out in very up-to-date blog – the Bel Esprit Winners Club – Spirited Halo, was the second Bel Esprit winner for trainer Stephen Theodore in the past fortnight.
Monitoring Bel Esprit’s success is becoming something of a full time endeavour for Brian given that his pride and joy produced 21 winners in January (four at stakes level), winners of 17 races in February (including exciting 2YO stakes winner Strike The Tiger and three winners in Hong Kong) and, thus far in March, has produced the winners Bondi Lad (Hong Kong), Shiago, La Bella Roo and Targa Lady (both winning last Saturday), All Spirit and Spirited Halo.
