Eliza Park entries
Terrific win by Bel Esprit sprinter, No Respite, in Singapore last night.
Trained by Don Baertschiger, No Respite upset stablemate and favourite, Al’s Knight, in the $75,000 Pan Malaysian Pool Trophy over 1200m, recording his third win and fifth placing from 14 starts.
“The pace was quite good and he travelled well throughout,” said jockey Jacky Low. “I got him to the outside in the straight and let him come home strongly. In the end it was a good win.”
No Respite is out of the 5-time winning Danehill Dancer mare Steely Dancer from the family of Champion mare, Desirable.
Nice win by Bel Esprit mare, Miss Belistic, in the Mazda Maiden at Warrnambool yesterday.
She’s only lightly raced this girl but has managed to spin a cheque at five of her six starts to date and stepped out at the ‘bool as a hot favourite.
Trained by Matthew Williams, Miss Belistic is out of the Be My Guest mare, Set Point, and was bred by Tony and Deslee Santic’s Makybe operation.
Miss Belistic hails from a rock solid European family with her dam being a sibling to four stakes winners including Evening Kiss, dam of Singapore Group One winner Epalo.

And, finally, a highly popular addition to the ranks in 2012 is Black Caviar’s full brother MOSHE who has aroused considerable interest since his retirement to stud earlier this year.

C’mon … be a ‘legend’ and support a good cause!
Lightly raced Bel Esprit 4YO, Revitalise, was no slouch when he raced in Victoria with a second on debut and an all the way win at Kyneton next time out. He also ran a solid fourth at Caulfield after finding plenty of trouble in transit, but since his move to David Murphy (right) in Queensland, this bloke has grown another leg.
Opening with a win over 1200m at the Sunshine Coast in June, Revitalise then ran second at Eagle Farm on 7 July, won a thriller at Eagle Farm two weeks later, faded slightly for a fifth at Eagle Farm on 12 August and, in an absolute thriller over the mile at Doomben yesterday, notched up his fourth victory from just nine starts.
Revitalise is out of the Group winning Danewin mare Dane Belltar who has, to date, produced four winners from four to race, including Bendigo Cup-LR winner Tanby.
Revitalise’s third dam is also the brilliant mare, Taj Eclipse (VRC Oaks-G1 etc.)
