500 for Bel Esprit!

Breednet – Media Release – Wednesday, 20 May 2015

Champion Sire, BEL ESPRIT, has cracked it for his 500th individual winner (501 actually) with a running double in Queensland today via Another Girl and hot pot favourite, Maraska.

It’s somewhat fitting that the stallion – who produced his first winner Gabbidon (also his first Group winner) in October 2006 – cracked the milestone in Queensland where he has shifted to for the 2015 season at Eliza Park International.It’s been some ride for Bel Esprit : apart from hitting the 500 mark, he has also notched 7 successive Victorian Sires’ titles, equalled the all-time Australian record for individual winners (155) in 2012/13, has produced 100 plus individual winners every year for the past five seasons and is also the sire of Australia’s greatest ever racehorse in Black Caviar.

Well done Bel – we’re looking forward to the next 500!

Bel Esprit stands at a fee of $18,700 in 2015 and makes for an interesting addition to the Queensland sire ranks.
