BELLAGIO, 2018 17+h bay gelding

Hello gorgeous! This dappled hunk has it all — flashy chrome, size, good movement, and an  ideal sport horse pedigree. He comes from top connections who always have lovely horses well represented. His trainer says that Bellagio is ready to find a new career because this year he just isn’t showing the same level of interest in racing that he has in the past.  She describes him as a fun horse with a “happy” attitude, no vices, an easy keeper, and great to work with in his stall.  She reports that he is a feeling good horse to ride, and that combined with his size suggests he is best suited for an experienced rider with serious sporting ambitions.  Bellagio has an old small osselet on his left ankle, but it has not caused him any problems, and does not limit a new career at all. He displayed lovely flowing ground covering movement for his jog video. has won over $75,000 in 22 starts, with two wins and several top finishes.  He is sired by Union Rags, who is coveted as a sport horse sire — known for siring big beautiful good movers just like Bellagio. Union Rags is by DIxie Union out of a Gone West mare.  Bellagio’s dam, Elarose, is by Storm Cat and is out of Take Charge Lady, one of the best racemares and broodmares of recent history.  Take Charge Lady is dam of Will Take Charge, who is also coveted as a sport horse sire. BIg, young, gorgeous, well bred geldings with unlimigted sport horse potential don’t come along everyday, so if this is what you have been looking for we suggest you act fact on Bellagio.

Price: $5,000
