Lot 86 - Belle Melba (AUS)
All Notes supplied by vendor
Young, city winning mare with a bright future.
Bought by Clinton McDonald at the Inglis Premier Sale, Belle Melba was a terrific race filly, notching victories as a three year old at her first two starts before going on to a pair of city class 1100m wins at Morphetville in a brief 12 start career.
Retired to Rosemont and a breeding career, she became a foundation mare for Rosemont’s new sire NOSTRADAMUS and now boasts three impressive foals by that stallion, the first of which has shown considerable promise in training as a two year old, again with Clinton McDonald. All foals have been retained by Rosemont and partners to race.
A BEL ESPRIT mare from a decent family, there is further pedigree upside through Belle Melba’s winning half sister So Hard To Catch, whose first foal is a weanling filly by I AM INVINCIBLE and is again in foal to that leading stallion.
Belle Melba sells in foal again to Nostradamus and would suit a breeder looking for a fast young mare with plenty of upside.
Uncomplicated mare, straight forward breeder.
