Perennnial champ, Bel Esprit, lobbed with another double at Geelong yesterday, courtesy of a breakthrough win to close Black Caviar relation, Esprit de Sol, and the classy sprinter, Spirit or Lager.
Esprit de Sol was all business on the synthetic surface, sitting just off the leaders before pulling away in the straight and winning with plenty in hand:http://www.racing.com/horses/esprit-de-sol
Bred by Robert Crabtree, Esprit de Sol is out of the stakes winning Western Symphony mare, Midnight Sun, a half sister to Scandinavia (the mother of Crabtree’s Magnus and granddam of Black Caviar).
As for Spirit or Lager, it was win #3 for the gelding out of Encosta de Lago mare, My Fair Lago – the dam of 7 winners including Flemington black typer, Eagle Command.

EPI’s resident form analyst and Newcastle native, Mitch Roach, has been waiting for Riapinka to make her race day appearance ever since the Bel Esprit filly whammed, bammed and thank you ma’amed an 800m trial at Gosford, winning by 6.5 lengths.
Trained at Newcastle by Kris Lees, Riapinka did the orange and black Maltese cross proud, leading throughout in the 2000m Sky Maiden at Gosford today, scoring with plenty in hand.
And it wasn’t just Mitch’s $10 that backed the filly into favouritism.
Clearly onwards and upwards from here for this Bel Esprit filly who is out of the stakes placed Fastnet Rock mare Elimbari, a three quarter sister to Silver Slipper winner Amelia’s Dream.

Bel Esprit had winners in 3 states today with the first of them, Raise Your Spirits, fittingly taking out her maiden on the Gold Coast.
She was the 504th individual winner for Bel Esprit who will this year stand at our Queensland farm at a fee of $18,700.
But while the Michael Maunder trained, Raise Your Spirits broke her duck (as did Bel Esprit first starter, Valderrama, at Geelong yesterday), the Champion sire was also represented in the winners’ circle today by Belesron, who scored over 1050m at Morphettville, and Pilly’s Wish, who was successful for D. Oliver in the 1000m scamper at Moonee Valley.
Peter Moody’s Belesron (pictured) notched up win #5 from just 13 outings while it was a third victory for Mick Price’s Pilly’s Wish.

Terrific price for the Bel Esprit mare, Diamond Glow, who was knocked down earlier today for $260,000 at the Gold Coast MM National Broodmare Sale.
Sold as a yearling by Eliza Park International to OnTrack Thoroughbreds (of Brazen Beau fame) for $110,000 at the 2012 Gold Coast MM, she won her first start in emphatic fashion – the VOBIS Gold Carat at Caulfield before going on to finish 2nd in the Blue Diamond Preview, giving her that all-important black type.
Part-owned by the delightful, Michelle Jenkins (who just wanted to see her end up in a good paddock!), Diamond Glow was snapped up by Damon Gabbedy’s Belmont Bloodstock Agency.

There has already been a Group One response to Bel Esprit’s relocation to Queensland for this spring with Tony Thomas booking his mare, Kenbelle – dam of today’s Doomben 10,000 winner, Boban – to the Champion sire.
Eliza Park International’s Queensland representative, Robyn Wise, said Tony was quick out of the barriers to book Kenbelle into Bel Esprit and that the phone has been ringing hot since last month’s announcement. Another of the Group One bookings is Golden Slipper winner, Merlene, owned by Queensland’s Daandine Pastoral. Welcome to Queensland, Bel!
(How fitting – the pic is of Bel Esprit winning his Doomben 10,000!)

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.
It’s been some ride for Bel Esprit : apart f…

Margaret Allen It’s amazing to think that this stallion started out as a yearling as a very cheap purchase at the sales. What a long, long way he has come since then! Love the arch of his neck in this photo – beautiful, and similar to that of Black Caviar in the recent outstanding photo of her running with her firstborn.
