Breednet’s Tara Madgwick reports Australian bred filly Essenelles broke through to score her first win at Turffontein in South Africa on Saturday, the win of some interest as she is a half-sister to leading sire Bel Esprit.
Trained by Lucky Houdalakis, Essenelles took the 1200m maiden by half a length. A $250,000 Magic Millions purchase for World Wide Bloodstock from the Coolmore draft, Essenelles is a half-brother to dual Group I winner Bel Esprit (below), who is of course known as the sire of champion sprinter Black Caviar.
She is the eighth winner for Vain mare Bespoken, a half-sister to Group I VATC Blue Diamond Stakes winner Mahaasin.

 Bespoken died in 2009 at age 19 after the birth of Essenelles, who is her last foal.
