Belgravia Offers New Opportunity for Florida Breeders in 2009

Belgravia (TrueNicks,SRO will join the roster at Hartley/De Renzo in Florida for the 2009 breeding season and is one also one of the latest additions to the burgeoning list of TrueNicks stallions.

Belgravia sold for $2 million at the 2006 Fasig-Tipton Calder sale and won the grade III Hollywood Prevue Stakes over a field that included multiple graded stakes winner Notional (TrueNicks,SRO). Being a seven-figure and stakes-winning juvenile has lead to sire success in at least two other instances:  Songandaprayer (TrueNicks,SRO) , who graduated from Florida to Kentucky after ranking among the top five freshmen sires in 2005, and this year's leading first-crop sire Lion Heart (TrueNicks,SRO) . By the internationally successful Gone West (TrueNicks,SRO stallion Mr. Greeley (TrueNicks,SRO) , Belgravia is out of the stakes-winning Stalwart mare Peaks Mill. Her sister, Qualique, is the granddam of champion and dual Classic winner Afleet Alex (TrueNicks,SRO) .
