Which Cross Yields 100% Winners?

Tara Madgwick – Monday, 15 August 2011

This cross is working, so don’t ignore the obvious.

With four wins in as many starts culminating in a three length romp to victory in the Listed MRC 60th Anniversary National services Stakes, up and coming speedster Bel Sprinter has stamped himself as the next rising star for leading Victorian sire Bel Esprit.

A homebred for part-owner Glen Bailey, Bel Sprinter is the first foal of the Snippets mare Gavroche, whose dam is the imported La Miserable (USA), a half-sister to Australian Group I winner Always Aloof, who won the Group I VATC Underwood Stakes in 1997.

Bel Sprinter is the 13th stakes-winner for Eliza Park based Bel Esprit (pictured) , who is coming off his best ever season in 2010/2011 with 112 winners of $7.2 million and a superstar flagbearer in unbeaten sprint star Black Caviar.

Interestingly, both Black Caviar and Bel Sprinter carry the blood of Snippets on their dam side, Bel Sprinter from a mare by Snippets and Black Caviar from Helsinge, a mare whose dam Scandinavia is by Snippets.

The Bel Esprit x Snippets cross has been remarkably successful, producing nine runners to date, all of them winners with Bel Sprinter joined by Vivacious Spirit as stakes-winners.
