Mr Bellagio appreciated the drop back in class and the return to his favoured trip when winning nicely at the Sunshine Coast over 1400m.

Jockey Mark Du Plessis was having his first ride on Mr Bellagio when allowing him to settle in last place early in the race.

In a race where the pace was muddling during the mid-section Du Plessis was content to let other jockeys search for runs as they entered the home straight allowing Mr Bellagio to gain an uninterrupted passage through the field hitting the lead at the 200 metre point.  

By saving his petrol early in the race Mr Bellagio was able to hold Snitch at bay over the final 200 metres to win by a half-length.

Mr Bellagio has proven to be very honest winning six races from twenty-six starts and finishing in the minor placings on another eight occasions.

Since winning his first career start over 1000m, all Mr Bellagio’s wins have been over 1350m or 1400m.

Congratulations to owners Brett and Lauren Galea on the win by Mr Bellagio taking his prizemoney to $144,000.

On this occasion Mr Bellagio was strapped by Donna Fisher.
