Uncle Mo, Bellafina Daughter Brings Big Money at Fasig

Hip 128 | Fasig-Tipton

A weanling daughter of Uncle Mo out of MGISW Bellafina (Quality Road) was the first to break the seven-figure threshold–which will no doubt be eclipsed many times once the mare portion starts–at Fasig-Tipton November Sunday, fetching $1.35 million on a winning bid from Gabriel Duignan, who signed as Paramount Bloodstock. Consigned by Eaton Sales as hip 128, the Feb. 11 foal was bred by the Coolmore-connected entities of Orpendale, Chelston and Wynatt and Kaleem Shah. Shah acquired Bellafina for $800,000 at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton Florida sale, and saw her take the GI Del Mar Debutante and GI Chandelier S. later that season. She added the GI Santa Anita Oaks as a sophomore and was second in that year's GI Breeders' Cup F/M Sprint. Coolmore's Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith bought in after that, and she'd subsequently add another graded stakes win and two more Grade I placings en route to $1,617,975 in career earnings. This is the first foal out of the full-sister MSW/MGSP Diamond King. Bellafina herself will sell as hip 264 later in the evening. Click here for more.
