Sire: Bel Esprit

Colour: Bay

Dam: Scottish Tiara

Sex: Colt

Age: 2

Foaled: Aug 23, 2017

Country: Australia

Incentives:

A colt that excites John Symons to suggest he hasn’t seen a Bel Esprit that warranted him bidding on it since Black Caviar went through the ring.

Very well developed, with big jowl and hindquarters, indicating that he may well be a 2yo runner.

Out of a 2 time winning Beautiful Crown mare, who has already had 4 winners from 4 to race.

John says “I love him, he reminds me so much of his sire, Bel Esprit! Let’s hope he has the same ability”
