Bellagio Wynn Takes Christmas Cup

Monday, 13th December 2010

Former Arrowfield Stud & Coolmore shuttler Dehere (Deputy Minister-Sister Dot, by Secretariat) added a black-type success when 7YO gelding Bellagio Wynn (Dehere-Hunting Gal, by Huntingdale) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the $100,000 Listed Christmas Cup (2400m) at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney. Bellagio Wynn (ridden by Glyn Schofield for trainer Chris Waller) defeated top-weighted 5YO gelding Rock Kingdom (Rock Of Gibraltar-Happy Empress, by St Covet) & 5YO mare Jungle Rocket (Jungle Pocket-Gu Li, by Last Tycoon). Bellagio Wynn (a $70,000 yearling consigned by Arrowfield at the 2005 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) took his record to 9 wins (also including March's Listed Sky High Stakes over 1900m at Rosehill) & 15 placings (including May's Listed W.J.McKell Cup over 2400m at Rosehill, plus 2009's Gr3 Colin Stephen Quality over 2400m at Randwick & Gr3 Tattersalls's Cup over 2200m at Eagle Farm) from 51 starts for $569,895 earnings.
