The pinhooked Espinola (Bel Esprit) took out race four at Wagga's country showcase meeting this afternoon. The two year old has now had 4 starts for 2 wins, showing plenty of promise for David Hayes, Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig. The son of Bel Esprit started his career with an impressive win at Bendigo, a placing at Rosehill followed, before a spell. This preparation is off with a bang following todays win.
We purchased Espinola at the 2017 Gold Coast Weanling Sales for $40,000, he then completed a yearling preparation before being presented at the New Zealand Bloodstock 2018 Book 1 sale making a very creditable $100,000 to global racing and breeding operation Aquis Farm.
We look forward to following Espinola over the coming months.
