Over the past 12 years Bettors Delight has established himself as the king of Australia’s sires topping the Australian Sires List each of those 12 seasons.
That trend shows no sign of stopping as his Australian-bred sons Leap To Fame and Max Delight finished first and third in the $500,000 Hunter Cup at Melton last Saturday.
For good measure a New Zealand bred son of Bettors Delight in Don’t Stop Dreaming split the Aussie bred pair.
There is just one yearling by Bettors Delight in the Sunshine Stars yearling sale on Sunday and that is Lot 57 on account of Alf Laspina Pty Ltd.
This colt is a half-brother to Bathurst Gold Crown winner Tardelli p,2,1:53.0 $167,597 but wait, as they say in the classics, there is more.
Lot 57 is bred on the same cross as the aforementioned Leap To Fame and Max Delight being out of an Art Major mare.
Both Leap To Fame and Max Delight have 1:50 miles to their credit with Saturday’s win taking Leap To Fame’s earnings to $2,103,957 while Max Delight is knocking on the door of becoming a millionaire with his earnings now reaching $942,424.
Prospective purchasers wishing to inspect Lot 57 should contact the preparers Monarch Farm on 0428 627 432.
