Bel Esprit (below) has continued his winning run into March with six winners in as many days, kicking off with Bel Price winning at Launceston on 29 February (the Vicki Rhind trained 3YO now winning two and placings three times from six starts) and followed up by victories to Plain Lucky in WA on 1 March (his third from eight), Mick Price’s Monte Bella at Moonee Valley on Friday night (three and five from 11), a double with Bel Tornado at Wodonga and Don’t Worry Toff at Geelong (a win, second and third from three outings) on Saturday and a resounding effort by Hot Lover at Warrnambool who had scored previously at Morphettville and has now two from three.
However, it was a ‘non winner’ that probably attracted the most attention when the Mick Price trained Mandla finished second in the Streets Ice Cream Stakes-LR over 1000m at Flemington on Saturday.
Bred and owned by Julie Nicholson – from her 6-time winning Rustic Amber mare Queen Kahuna – Mandla had absolutely no luck in running but finished on strongly behind the unbeaten Fire Thunderbolt.
Definitely one for the black book.
