Bellevue Hill To Stand At Aquis Hunter Valley

With the popularity of Gr1 All Aged Stakes winner Pierata, who will stand his first season at Aquis Hunter Valley, exceeding expectations, Aquis has made the decision to stand another son of Pierro in the electrifying homebred-colt Bellevue Hill, the only Group-winning juvenile son of his sire. Rifa Mustang, Mystery Downs, Belsin Thoroughbreds, Raffles, David Rothwell, Will Manning, G1G Racing and Kate Waterhouse, who all raced Bellevue Hill, are remaining in the ownership group for the next stage of his career and will support him as a stallion, giving him the best opportunity possible at stud. Bellevue Hill was an exciting juvenile, winning by over 5-lengths on debut in the Black Opal Preview at Canberra in 57.15 for the 1000m, before finishing a half-length second to Yes Yes Yes in the record-breaking Gr2 Todman Stakes after doing all the work up front and only being run down in the shadows of the post. In the process, Bellevue Hill achieved a juvenile Timeform Rating of 116, a mark equal or better than t Bivouac, Cosmic Force, Yes Yes Yes, Trapeze Artist, The Autumn Sun and Astern also achieved as 2YOs. A son of Champion First and Second Season Sire Pierro, whose 23 stakes winners include six Group 1 winners highlighted by Pierata, Shadow Hero and Regal Power, Bellevue Hill is out of the winning 1000m track record holder Bellevue Girl, a full-sister to Exceed And Excel's Group 3 winner Sugar Babe from the family of dual Group 2 winner On Type. Bellevue Hill will stand at Aquis Hunter Valley, NSW at a fee of $11,000 (inc GST), with a limited number of breeding rights available.
