Bellamy Road moving to New York


Bellamy Road will stand the 2016 breeding season at Duchess Views Farm in Pine Plains, N.Y., moving from WinStar Farm in Kentucky. He will stand for a fee of $7,500.

“I’m excited to see Bellamy Road continue his career in New York, where he’s done special things both as a racehorse and as a sire,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar president and chief executive. “He has a lot of great opportunities in the pipeline, including a couple Grade 1 2-year-old fillies in 2015. WinStar is keeping an interest in Bellamy Road, and we think he is well positioned for the New York market.”

A 13-year-old by Concerto out of Hurry Home Hillary, by Deputed Testamony, Bellamy Road has sired six crops of racing age, with 456 foals of racing age, 317 starters, 203 winners, 27 stakes winners, and progeny earnings of $14.3 million through Tuesday. His stakes winners include Canadian champion older mare Sisterly Love, Grade 1 Wood Memorial winner Toby’s Corner, and Grade 3 stakes winner All Squared Way.

He is represented by nine stakes winners in 2015, including the 2-year-old filly Constellation, who won the Furlough Stakes at Aqueduct and placed in the Grade 1 Spinaway, as well as the 2-year-old filly Land Over Sea, the runner-up in the Grade 1 Chandelier Stakes and third in the Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante.

Bellamy Road entered stud in 2007 at Hurricane Hall in Kentucky after winning the Wood Memorial by a record 17 1/2 lengths in stakes-record time of 1:47.16 – also equaling the 1 1/8-mile track record at Aqueduct. He won four of seven starts and earned $811,400. He was second in the Travers.
