We are again proud to support David and Coral Feek with the syndication of their new yearling purchased at the recent Inglis Gold Yearling Sale.
This colt is a son of BEL ESPRIT, brilliant two and three year old. Among his eight race wins were the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at two, and the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) at three.
His race career earned him a high place amongst stallions commencing stud duties in 2003. Since then he has been crowned Champion Victoria Sire eight times and Champion Australian Sire (by winners) in 2012-13, equalling the all-time Australian record for winners in a season.
He is the sire of over 670 winners in 11 countries including the great mare BLACK CAVIAR, plus 25 other stakes-winners.
This is the first foal of handy race mare BUON AUSPICIO, who won five races including four at metropolitan level.
She is a daughter of Eclipse Champion 3yo BERNARDINI, a multiple Grade 1 winner in the US and himself a grandson of one of the world’s best stallions SEATTLE SLEW.
Buon Auspicio is a half-sister to 10 winners, one being the speedy Victorian filly LA CHASSEUSE.
