Blueblood Debut Winner for Bel

Tara Madgwick – Thursday, 4 June 2015
Astute breeder Bob Hannon, who tasted the ultimate success as a breeder when Shamus Award won the Cox Plate, was in the winner’s circle at Gosford on Thursday with a beautifully bred daughter of Bel Esprit.

Two year-old filly Riapinka opened her account with a stylish length and a half win in the 1000 metre maiden accounting for the well-bred Godolphin runner Knotted.

Prepared by Kris Lees for her breeders, who include Bob Hannon and Hilton Cope, Riapinka is the first foal of Fastnet Rock mare Elimbari, a Group III placed three-quarter sister to former brilliant two year-old Amelia’s Dream.

Amelia’s Dream had just two starts, but her six length record breaking win in the 2008 Group II STC Silver Slipper is something that still sticks in the minds of all those who remember her.

While Amelia’s Dream was bred by the same group of breeders and sold as a yearling, Elimbari was retained.

The second foal from Elimbari, a filly by So You Think, was sold at Inglis Easter this year fetching $180,000 to the bid of Dean Hawthorne Bloodstock.

Elimbari is pictured here at Bob Hannon’s Ascot Park farm just outside of Sydney with her Pierro colt born last spring. She will foal to the Golden Slipper winner again later this year .
