Another double for Bel Esprit (below) on Friday with the ‘cruise’ of Loveyamadly at Mornington and a win to Oregon Spirit at Cranbourne.
Stepping out for the first time, 3YO filly – Loveyamadly – was highly impressive over 1013m at Mornington, scoring by 3.3 lengths after sitting just off the lead until turning for home before scooting away over the final stages.
The Mick Price trained youngster was bred by Patrick Yii and is out of the Danehill Dancer mare, Beauty World, now the dam of 3 winners (from 3 to race), including Group One placed American Crew.
A multiple winner, Beauty World is also a half sister to stakes winning 2YO, Firenza.
Meanwhile, across town the Peter Moody trained Oregon Spirit produced his third win (along with six placings) from 14 outings when flying home for a comfortable win over 1500m at Cranbourne.
This is now two on the trot for the 4YO who is out of the Group winning Oregon mare, Oregon Seal.
