****SOLD**** 5yo Class 1 Victorian "Sprinter" *Bel Esprit* Mare - IN FULL WORK!

•Hasn't been the most consistent of horses in work, however, when her mind is on the job, she's got definite ability, as evidenced by her win at Pakenham and placings at Pakenham and Ballarat on the all weather surface. Overall 15 starts 1 win and 4 placings.

•Also managed a 5th in town, beaten 3.6L in $50k Moonee Valley maiden.

•Solid form early on around some smart types, including Our Wind Spirit, Sword Of Mercy etc.

•Trainer informs me that she can be a handful in the head, however, if anyone can get her right, she's got some sort of motor and could turn it around.

•Apart from that he informs me she's been a sound horse to train.
