This filly is a filly Nick bred at Glebe Farm Stables that was bought at Tattersalls Book 3 sales by Marco Botti and Nick Bradley.
She was bred by Nick Bradley and Kulbir Sohi at Glebe Farm and is the first foal out of the winning Oasis Dream mare Alexandrite. Nick was keen to retain ownership of this filly. She is a nice model and looks one for the first half of the 2021 season. She moves well and is a strong first foal.
She qualifies for the GB Bonus scheme as she was bred in Great Britain and as she is by an Irish based stallion, she qualifies for a £10,000 bonus every time she wins one of the nominated races.
Belardo has had a good first season with three Stakes winning fillies within his first crop. Isabella Giles won the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes, Elysium won the Group 3 Weld Park Stakes and Lullaby Moon put in a great performance to win the Listed Redcar 2yo Trophy. With these three Stakes winning fillies already on the board you would have expected Belardo fillies to have made more money through the ring at the yearling sales. This filly is probably the nicest Belardo filly Nick has seen at the sales.
Marco Botti and George Boughey were both keen to buy this filly and both wanted to invest their own funds into buying a share, Marco Botti winning the battle at 20,000 Guineas.
Expect to see her on the track in May time over 6 furlongs, and to date the Belardo progeny have shown a preference for softer ground. issue with Richard, and he was happy to take the chance and has taken a share himself.
