Three length debut Saratoga win for 2yo son of $5,000 mare
Belly Of The Whale is bred and owned by Peachtree Stable, in whose colours his sire Red Giant won the Clement L Hirsch Memorial Turf Championship. Saddled by Christophe Clement and racing without Lasix, the colt raced widest of all during the early stages of the race before creeping closer and exploding away to win by three lengths.
His dam Irish-bred Miss Nashwan was a high-class performer in Italy, winning the Group 3 Premio Carlo Chiesa. The daughter of Nashwan, who is out of Italian Group 3 winner Miss Carolina, has a colt foal by Cape Blanco (view HERE) and is in foal to Warrior’s Reward.
