Pierro x Bellevue Girl (Exceed And Excel)
Standing at Hunter Valley, NSW
Electrifying homebred-colt Bellevue Hill, the only Group-winning juvenile son of his Champion First and Season Season Sire Pierro, will stand his debut season in 2020 at Aquis Hunter Valley.
Bellevue Hill was an exciting juvenile, winning by over five lengths on debut in the Black Opal Preview at Canberra in a time of 57.15 before finishing a half-length second to Yes Yes Yes in the record-breaking Gr.2 Todman Stakes after doing all the work up front and only be run down late, leaving Bivouac, Strasbourg and Time To Reign in his wake.
Recording a quicker time than his own sire Pierro achieved in his Todman Stakes win, Bellevue Hill went on to record a facile two length victory in the Gr.3 Schweppervescence Stakes over Strasbourg the following week. In the process, Bellevue Hill achieved a juvenile Timeform Rating of 116, a mark better or equal than the likes of what Bivouac, Cosmic Force, Yes Yes Yes, Trapeze Artist, The Autumn Sun and Astern also achieved at 2.
A son of Pierro, whose 23 stakes winners include six Gr.1 winners highlighted by fellow Aquis sires season sire Pierata, Shadow Hero and Regal Power, Bellevue Hill is out of the speedy, 1000m winner Bellevue Girl, a full-sister to Exceed And Excel’s Gr.3 winner Sugar Babe from the family of dual Gr.2 winner On Type.
"We thought if he'd got a run in the Golden Slipper he would have given it a real shake because he's the right colt"
Adrian Bott, Co-Trainer
"A very good win from a really progressive colt."
