The Sire

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.

The Dam

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.

The Trainers
