First-season sire Belardo continued his flying run of form when siring his third Stakes winner on Saturday, 3 October with Lullaby Moon leading home a Darley 1-2 in the Listed Two Year Old Trophy at Redcar. Sent off hot favourite, the two-year-old filly tracked the leaders, making headway two furlongs out under jockey Rossa Ryan. Joined at the furlong pole by Night Of Thunder’s son Zamaani, the filly kept on well to edge out her challenger and win by half a length.
Bred by Bearstone Stud, Lullaby Moon is the best performer from the winning Indesatchel mare Bold Bidder, herself a half-sister to the Stakes-placed pair of Better Built and Right Answer. They are out of a half-sister to the multiple Group-winning sprinter and sire Mind Games.
Champion two-year-old Belardo has enjoyed a fantastic run of form siring three Stakes winners in the last eight days. They are led by dual Group winner Isabella Giles, who took the G2 Rockfel Stakes last week at Newmarket, with Elysium following up 48 hours later to win the G3 Park Stakes at the Curragh.
