The Fast Track to Stakes Success

The extraordinary Bellamy Road has taken the fast track to success.

At the races, he was a dominating stakes winner at two, and a once-in-a-lifetime runner at three. In winning the Wood Memorial (G1) by 17+lengths, he not only equaled the track record set by Hall of Fame champion Riva Ridge, he posted the highest Beyer Speed Figure ever prior to the Kentucky Derby - 120.

As a sire, Bellamy Road has traveled right the top. Sire of Wood Memorial (G1) winner Toby’s Corner ($928,240) from his first crop and the reigning Fasig-Tipton July Sale Topping Colt ($420,000) from his 2013 yearling crop, he ranks among the top young stallions worldwide:

  • Recommended by Bill Oppenheim as one of America's Value Sires 
  • Second highest average at FTK July 2013 - $191,667
  • 2014 juveniles in training are averaging $94,000
  • 2nd leading U.S. 4th crop sire by % of stakes horses from foals - 12% (2nd to War Front, ahead of Bernardini)
  • 17 stakes winners - six Graded SWs - 25 stakes horses
  • Champion and 2014 Keeneland GSW SISTERLY LOVE ($427,004)
  • Bred 436 mares his last three seasons (2011-2013) combined

One of the hallmarks of successful sires is their ability to improve their mares’ performance. Only one-third of all sires improve their mares, and Bellamy Road is in that elite group.

Bellamy Road is a tremendous commercial success as well. In 2014, his two-year-olds in training are averaging nearly 9 1/2 times the stud fee at conception. His 2013 yearlings are led by the top-priced colt at FTK July, a $420,000 beauty purchased by Mandy Pope's Whisper Hill. Bill Oppenheim selected Bellamy Road in 2011 as one of just two "Value Sires" in his siring crop.

Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito has trained hundreds of stakes horses including two Kentucky Derby winners. He said: “The two best horses I ever trained were Unbridled's Song and Bellamy Road.”
