BELARDO was the champion two-year-old in Europe when he won the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes, and he trained on to add the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes over a mile as a four-year-old. He is great value at only €10,000, as he has sired 18 individual winners from his first crop, who were two-year-olds in 2020.

Belardo’s daughter Isabella Giles won the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket and the Group 3 Prestige Stakes at Goodwood, while Elysium scored in the Group 3 Park Stakes at the Curragh and Lullaby Moon took the Group 3 Prix Miesque at Chantilly and the Listed Redcar 2YO Trophy.
