Stakes double for Belmont Bloodstock

Belmont Bloodstock Agency struck twice in stakes company last week with Miss Gai Flyer and Single Spice.  Both fillies are by Arrowfield Stud sires and gave connections plenty to look forward at the autumn carnivals and beyond.

Belmont Bloodstock’s Damon Gabbedy bought Miss Gai Flyer for $250,000 at the 2009 Inglis Easter yearling sale from the Torryburn Stud draft.  He was acting on behalf of Sunlands Produce owners Gary and Wendy Pfeiler who placed the filly with Peter Moody.

“She was an outstanding yearling with a lot of quality,” Gabbedy recalled.  “She’s a very close relation to the Golden Slipper winner Ha Ha.”  

Miss Gai Flyer (3f Flying Spur – Power Of One by Gilded Time) won the Listed Kevin Hayes Stakes at Caulfield on February 12 and will attempt to win another Listed event in the $100,000 Typhoon Tracy Plate at Moonee Valley this Friday night.

Gabbedy purchased Single Spice for $20,000 at the 2009 Magic Millions National weanling sale from the Brooklyn Lodge consignment.  She is owned by former Fremantle Dockers footballer Peter Bell and Perth businessman Ray Meadowcroft.

Single Spice (2f Not A Single Doubt – Zaffron Gal by Galileo) is trained by Simon Miller and she was very impressive winning the Listed Supremacy Stakes at Ascot last Saturday.  She will set her for the $500,000 G2 Karrakatta Plate at Ascot on March 19 and can go one better than Miss Gai Flyer who was beaten a neck by Motion Pictures in Perth’s premier juvenile event last year.

Gabbedy snapped up another bargain for Bell and Meadowcroft when he secured the yearling sister to Single Spice for $40,000 at Session 6 of the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions.
