Eliza Park Stud stallions were in fine form in the southern areas of Australia on Sunday after they compiled a trio of winners at the Victorian and Tasmanian meetings.
Bel Esprit (Royal Academy – Bespoken, by Vain) led the way with a winning double. Navillus Superman (Bel Esprit – Sharna Cabarna, by Dolphin Street) finished strongly to claim the TAB Sportsbet $2 Million Bonus Handicap (1000m) at Cranbourne before Cleaver (Bel Esprit – Mill Lady, by Straight Strike) took out the $22,500 Jack Maher Classic (1200m) at Wodonga.
God’s Own (Redoute’s Choice – Angel In Disguise, by Sky Chase) earned a two-year-old success when Father Ned (God’s Own – Ornamented, by Gilded Time) posted his second win in the Oamps Handicap (1220m) at Launceston.
Father Ned is the fifth foal out of Ornamented (Gilded Time – Princess Carrie, by Lightning Orphan) to race; the gelding kept his dam’s perfect breeding record intact with his win earlier in the season.
Bel Esprit will stand for $27,500 for the 2011 breeding season.
Meanwhile, Arrowfield Stud sires produced an international double with wins in Australia and Singapore on Sunday.
The Patinack Farm-owned Renewed Vitality (Redoute’s Choice – Real Pzazz, by Green Desert) completed the local half of Arrowfield’s double with his success in the David Dwyer Bookmaker Maiden Plate (1000m).
Starcraft (Soviet Star – Flying Floozie, by Pompeii Court) three-year-old El Perigo (Starcraft – Patronella, by Mister C) posted his second win in a row in an 1800-metre Class 4 at Kranji.
El Perigo is a half-brother to stakes winners Stella Artois and Smytzer’s Trish (both Geiger Counter – Patronella, by Mister C).
