Belvoir Bay super impressive in Norther Stakes / December 2015


BELVOIR BAY (GB) (f, 2, Equiano {Fr})–Path of Peace {GB}, by Rock of Gibraltar {Ire}), last seen finishing ninth in Belmont’s Chelsey Flower S. in her U.S. debut for Bill Mott, looked like a new horse this time around while receiving first-time Lasix and switching to the Peter Miller barn. Two-for-five earlier this season while under the tutelage of Richard Hannon, the bay’s final British start was a close-up fourth in Goodwood’s G3 Prestige S. over seven panels of soft ground Aug. 29. Showing a slow series of drills out west since the trainer change to Miller, Belvoir Bay broke very alertly, but was content to concede pacesetting duties to Sweet Queen (Twirling Candy) through splits of :22.59, :47.04 and 1:11.93. Taking over in the blink of an eye turning for home, she exploded in the stretch, leaving favored GIII Jimmy Durante S. winner Family Meeting (Sky Mesa) with far too much to do from the back of the pack, and streaking home to a seven-length victory in 1:36.15. Sweet Queen held on for third. Lifetime Record: 7-3-1-0.
