Kennet Valley Thoroughbreds are delighted to offer shares in this attractive colt hailing from the first crop of Champion two-year-old and Dewhurst (Group 1) winner Belardo. The colt will be trained by William Knight who also trains multiple winning four-year-old Sir Busker and promising three-year-old Spanish Kiss for the syndicate.
Belardo, who went on to win the Lockinge (Group 1) aged four, is very much bred to be a top class stallion. A son of the leading sire Lope De Vega, he actually achieved a higher Timeform rating on the track than his own sire. His dam, Danaskaya, was herself very fast and precocious and earned the accolade of being crowned Champion two-year-old filly in Ireland.
The dam of this colt, Teide Lady, is a winning daughter of the Sheikh Hamdan's outstanding Derby winner Nashwan who has already produced the Group 3 winning two-year-old Ayaar at stud to date. She, herself, is a half-sister to the Superlative Stakes (Group 2) winner Hatta Fort as well as a very recent Group 3 winner in the shape of Brian Meehan's Spirit Of Appin.
We bought this colt for 50,000gns at the Tattersalls Book 1 Yearling Sale which makes him eligible for the £25,000 Book 1 Bonus should he win a Class 4 or above Novice/Maiden race as a two-year-old, something our own Persian Moon accomplished last year. Trainer William Knight loved him at the sales and will train him from his idyllic Angmering Park base in Sussex.
Bloodstock agent Luke Lillingston commented: "First impressions are usually the best. This colt had hardly come out of his box and stood up when I took an immediate shine to him. He has a beautiful head and a really classy eye. His body and athletic movement then meant he was firmly on our wish list, coinciding with William Knight's enthusiasm for him.
His sire had outstanding acceleration evidenced in his brilliant Dewhurst and Lockinge wins. His female family is one of Anthony Oppenheimer's best and I was lucky enough to buy the high class Miss Keller, this colt's third dam.
Interestingly one of our frequent protagonists in the sales ring Anthony Bromley, for whom I have maximum respect, felt we had bought great value and regretted not bidding for this colt. Thank goodness he didn't!"
