Sizzling - Belle D'Amour
Another Sizzling filly in our team
Dan Morton to train in Perth

By Sizzling

I really liked what I saw in a number of the progeny of Sizzling at last year’s sales. To me, it is a no brainer that he will be a success at stud. He was a terrific racehorse and precocious two year old from the most dominant sire line in Australia for the past 20 years out of a ‘black type’ mare by one of the greatest sprinters of the modern generation in General Nediym.

Sizzling’s pedigree page is very strong with a host of very good horses down the page. In fact, it couldn’t be any stronger with both the 2nd and 3rd dams being superior producers.

I love the General Nediym (1st dam), Alzao stakes winner (2nd Dam) and Without Fear stakes producer (3rd dam) down the page. Eastate Label, the 3rd dam was a very high class producer also throwing the outstanding two year old filly Loving Cup.

I must say I had a bit to do with both sides of this pedigree with Sizzling’s sire Snitzel being out of Snippet’s Lass. Both General Nediym and Snippet’s Lass were trained by Bill Mitchell when I was his Racing Manager. They were both high class racehorses with Snippet’s Lass being one of the toughest mares I have had anything to do with.

Sizzling has started out his stud career in great fashion and is currently 4th on the Australian First Season List.

Out of Belle D'Amour

Belle D’Amour is by the good sprinter Jet Spur. He has had a good start as a broodmare sire with 15 of his 26 runners winning. This is more than acceptable.

Belle D’Amour was a very good race filly and won the BRC Lancaster Stakes at two years old. This is only her 2nd foal with the first being a winner of one of his only two starts. There are also plenty of winners down the page including several ‘black type’ performers. Belle D’Amour’s dam is by Military Plume which adds a lot to the page.

At the 2017 series of yearling sales I was consistently taken by the progeny of Sizzling. They looked athletic, racy types of horses and as I result I decided to purchase a couple. Both of these are now two year olds and named Addocarr and Zizzis. Addocarr recently had his first barrier trial finishing a close second at Doomben. We decided to give him a month off and then get him back to have a crack at the Queensland Winter Carnival. The second a filly named Zizzis ran a nice third in a trial at Cranbourne. A third filly by Sizzling out of our former smart race mare Greenmount Belle slipped through our hands when I was the under bidder on her and has won her first three starts including one in Sydney.

The photo does do this filly justice. She is very athletic and a very attractive filly. She is a nice size and looks a runner to my eye. She is eligible for the Westspeed bonuses which is a great advantage when racing horses in WA.

The filly vetted out without any issues and has a great hindquarter and a good strong shoulder and deep girth. Her legs are very good. In fact you couldn’t fault her conformation.

I am thrilled to have purchased her and look forward to her racing future.
