MITCH’S PRINCESS MAKES IT 4
Have yourself a Beer! Tremendous effort from the Mitchell Beer Racing trained, Princess Cordelia, to notch up her fourth win – and 2nd in town this season – in the TAB Highway Handicap over 1100m at Royal Randwick.
Such a consistent performer – who was purchased by Mitch, Heywood Bloodstock and Brent Crawford at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale – Princess Cordelia marks the first leg of a city double for BEL ESPRIT on Saturday (see our review below of Honey Esprit’s victory at Flemington).
What an incredible stallion BEL ESPRIT has been. A Champion Australian Sire, he’s averaged over 130 winners per season for the last decade, boasts 70% winners to runners and stands for just $7,700 inc. GST this season … no payment until live foal.
Princess Cordelia is out of the Shamardal mare, Confederate Rose and was bred by Michael Niall.

BEL’S HONEY HIT FOR 6
Gutsy performance from Clint McDonald’s Honey Esprit to fight off all challengers in the GH Mumm Trophy over 1400m at Flemington Racecourse and Victoria Racing Club.
It was the 6th win for the BEL ESPRIT 5YO who won at Sandown in February and again at Sale in March. The mare has now won $262,240 for the MacDonalds, which again represents outstanding value for a Champion Sire who stands at just $7,700 inc. GST – no payment until live foal – this season.
Honey Esprit is the last foal of the Picnicker mare, Ocran and was bred by Keith Murphy, who also bred Honey’s Esprit’s full sister, the 4-time winner Honey Flower.

ANOTHER FIORENTE STARS
Star Thoroughbreds sure knows how to pick out a good type and FIORENTE 4YO, Mangione, showed at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Saturday just what an impressive performer he is with a dominant display in the Brisbane Racing Club Members Plate.
It was the 4th win (along with 7 placings) for Mangione, who has banked over $200,000 for connections and, while this was the flashy bay’s third run back, he clearly relished the 1815m journey at the Farm.
Based on his latest effort, another tilt at stakes level would appear to be on the cards.
Mangione was bred by Daryl & Di Wilkinson and is out of the Excellent Art mare, Symphony Strings. Sadly, Symphony Strings passed away last year but also has a Fighting Sun filly, Orchestrate, who has been placed at her only two outings.
FIORENTE stands this season at Sun Stud at a fee of $17,600 inc. GST – no payment until live foal.

FLASHBACK: Sun Stud's SQUAMOSA won the June stakes by 5L for Gai Waterhouse and Star Thoroughbreds.
"He was just too brilliant. He hit the ground running. He cruised up the rise and when I pushed the button I did not really go for him as he just lengthened and he was explosive" - Jim Cassidy.
