Racing: Belle Genius outwits Eva

Click to follow
PAUL KELLEWAY, whose trademark in the Seventies and Eighties was speculative, but sometimes successful attempts at major prizes, resumed that role at The Curragh yesterday when saddling Belle Genius to win the Moyglare Stud Stakes. The race was the sixth at Group One level won by Kelleway, but the first for six years. Belle Genius, a 20-1 shot ridden by Jason Weaver, beat France's Tereshkova, with the favourite, Eva Luna, third.

'I used to have 50 horses, but I am down to a dozen now,' Kelleway said. 'I go out with just four in my first lot, when I meet 80 of Gosden's, another 80 of Cumani's and about 100 of Cecil's. I know now how General Custer felt.'
