Embellished, the 2-year-old filly from the first crop of Bellamy Road,
was named champion juvenile of 2010 at the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse
Society awards banquet held May 14th at Northlands Park in Alberta,
Embellished made four starts last year at Northlands, with a pair of
wins and a two third-place finishes. After a running third in her debut
on June 30, she won a pair of $50,000 stakes before finishing the year
off with another third in the $50,000 Freedom of City S., when she
crossed the wire first but was disqualified by the stewards.
Embellished was bred in Kentucky by Liberation Farm and Brandywine Farm
from the Belong To Me mare Birthright. The unraced mare is a half-sister
to Fit for a Queen, who was an eight-time stakes winner in a remarkable
career that saw her earn $1.2 million and finish in the top three 36 of
51 lifetime starts.
Bellamy Road is the nation's leading second-crop sire of 2011, with 18
winners to date, led by Toby's Corner, who won the Wood Memorial (G1)
and was third in the Whirlaway S. this year.
