Action Annie X Bel Esprit
A half-brother to 7-time Group 1 winner BUFFERING and bred on a similar Bel Esprit/Danzig cross as BLACK CAVIAR is this colt by Bel Esprit (Royal Academy) out of Action Annie (Anabaa).
Bel Esprit has had three runners to-date out of Anabaa mares for two winners, including the 1000m specialist Baltic Spirit, while Bel Esprit’s sire Royal Academy (Nijinsky) sired the 8-time winner Royal Thief out of an Anabaa mare also.
Anabaa has been an extremely successful broodmare sire, with 12 individual Group 1 winners to his credit to-date and he has nicked well with descendants of Royal Academy; the Group 3 winner and multiple Group 1-placed ANA ROYAL is by Anacheeva (Anabaa) out of Sacha Royale – Royal Academy is the broodmare sire of Sacha Royale, while the Stakes-performer Workdrinks is by Fastnet Rock out of Slapstick (Anabaa) – Royal Academy is the broodmare of Fastnet Rock.
Since this catalogue was printed Brazen Moss, a son of this filly’s Hussyanna, has added some valuable black-type to his record.
