The Group Two Perth Cup victory of Talent Show on New Year’s Day was cause for celebration in more ways than one.
The Jeune mare was sold as a yearling at the 2008 Melbourne Premier by Eliza Park to Belmont Bloodstock for $100,000 before being sold three years later to John Chalmers Bloodstock.
Talent Show is out of the Oregon mare, Oregon Seal who is also the dam of Bel Esprit 3YO, Bel Seal, who followed up a Moonee Valley third on debut with a cracking win at Cranbourne last Friday (28 December). Two winners – one of them at Group Two level – in five days is no mean feat!
Well, Eliza Park has been given the opportunity to prepare and present a full sister to Bel Seal and half to Talent Show at the 2013 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale on 5 March when she enters the ring as Lot 563.
And while there is sure to be plenty of interest in the filly, there’s another Bel Esprit miss in the Eliza Park draft that day that will garner he own share of attention. Lot 447 is a Bel Esprit filly out of Jezeera and just happens to be a full sister to excitement machine and current $2m Magic Millions 2YO Classic favourite, Clevadude.
