This Maryland-bred, New York-sired, and Virginia-certified Bellamy Road filly has a lovely conformation (see notes below on conformation). She is in training at Monmouth Mark.
Notes on conformation at the sale from Director of Racing Operations, Adam Parker:
This Bellamy Road filly is big and scopey, with a well balanced frame. She displays an athletic walk, with a wonderful swinging hip allowing for a generous overstep. This filly’s level of preparedness left her a step below cosmetically. She will blossom in the coming months and, as she comes to maturity, transition into a lovely two-year-old. She was a true “sleeper” at this sale and the best of bargains at the purchase point.
Hip 256 is a lovely filly by Bellamy Road, out of the Roaring Fever mare, Overlook. Bellamy Road is best known for his jaw-dropping win in the G1 Wood Memorial, where he obliterated the field by 17.5 lengths and earned a massive 120 Beyer speed figure. He is responsible for siring Diversify, a multiple G1 winner of over $1.9M in purses. His other Grade 1 progeny include Toby's Corner and Constellation.
Overlook is a winning mare by Roaring Fever, who earned a very respectable $182,434 in purses during her career. She won 8 times in 48 career starts and hit the board a total of 21 times. She campaigned and won on both dirt and turf between 5.5F and a mile and 70 yards.
Overlook broke her maiden by over 5 lengths at the maiden special weight level at Monmouth Park.Overlook is the dam of just one other foal, Crowheart Butte, who is a 3yo gelding by Stroll. Crowheart Butte broke his maiden in his first start on turf just this past weekend, on 10/5, at the maiden special weight level at Parx. To date, he has earned $29,950 in just 3 career starts.
Hip 256's second dam, Skout About, by Mr. Leader, won 8 times in 33 career starts to earn over $122,000. Skout About is the dam of 5 winners from 5 foals to race. Her least successful foal still earned over $62,000 in purses in 25 starts, which is quite impressive. Each of her other progeny earned at least $111,000 and started no fewer than 18 times on the track, demonstrating incredible durability and consistency in her produce, no matter their sires. In all, her progeny earned a total of $704,811 on the racetrack and made a total of 178 starts, for an average of 35.6 starts and close to $141,000 in winnings.
Skout About's most successful foal to race was Uncle Otto, a full brother to Overlook who amassed over $226,000 in purses and won the non-blacktype, First State Dash Stakes (which was restricted to Delaware-bred and certified horses). He was twice stakes placed in the Spend a Buck Stakes and the Charles Hesse III Handicap at Monmouth Park. He earned a career high 106 Equibase speed figure and won between 4.5F and a mile and 70 yards on dirt.
