According to Breednet Weekly, BEL ESPRIT is Australia’s No. 1 sire for the past 30 days in terms of wins.
Victoria’s Champion Sire has produced the winners of 22 races, ahead of Commands (20), Flying Spur (20), Pins (20) and General Nediym (19).
Bel Esprit’s strike rate was helped considerably by a treble on Monday – Canna at Toowoomba (his third win on the trot), plus a double at Wangaratta to Beltonic and Bellatheball.
Bel Esprit has two starters in the Kensington Stakes-LR at Flemington tomorrow in Waltzes and Silver Bullion.
Waltzes – with two wins and a third at Moonee Valley at his past three starts – is aiming to become his sire’s 11th stakes winner while Silver Bullion (below) – who won the race last year – is fresh from a win at Moonee Valley on 31 December.
