Haunui Farm shuttle stallion Belardo has a new Group winner to his credit with Elysium winning the Gr.3 Weld Park Stakes (1400m) at the Curragh on Sunday.
A maiden winner in June, Elysium showed a good turn of foot to beat Aunty Bridy by a length and a half.
The win continues a strong run of results from Belardo’s first northern hemisphere crop, with smart filly Isabella Giles leading the charge with her Group Two victory at Newmarket last week.
Based at Kildangan Stud in the Northern Hemisphere, Belardo, the European champion two-year-old, began shuttle duties at Haunui Farm in 2017 and is standing his fourth season at the Karaka farm in 2020.
He is the only son of Lope De Vega at stud in Australasia and stands for a fee of $10,000+GST.
