Bel Esprit Half-Sister To Debut At Kenilworth
A half-sister to Eliza Park Stud's multiple Gr1-winning sire Bel Esprit (Royal Academy-Bespoken, by Vain) will make his debut at Kenilworth in Cape Town, South Africa, on Saturday. Called Essenelles, the Encosta de Lago 3YO filly has accepted for a Maiden (1400m). Trained by Glen Kotzen, she was a $250,000 purchase by World Wide Bloodstock at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale from the draft of Coolmore Stud. Bel Esprit passed the 100 winners mark last season during April.
