Eliza Park was saddened to hear of the death of Bel Esprit shareholder, Kurt Stern (left), who passed away last Friday (12 November).
Fellow Bel Esprit part-owner and friend, Brian Donohoe, paid tribute to Kurt on the Bel Esprit Winners Club blog:
Kurt was one of the original owners of Bel Esprit and John Symons trained the horse on the property that Kurt built: Macedon Lodge in the Macedon Ranges.
One of Kurt’s finest moments was when he led Bel Esprit back to the saddling enclosure after winning the Blue Diamond Stakes.
Kurt was an avid reader of the Bel Esprit Winners Club and loved to know about  all the Bel Esprit progeny running around.
A successful businessman, Kurt owned Neat ‘n’ Trim Uniforms before he took a run down property that ran a few head of cattle, into an outstanding training establishment in the Macedon Ranges. Lloyd Williams now trains his horses on the property.
