Description: Belle Gallantey (KY) CH , M, foaled February 11, 2009 (After Market - Revealed, by Old Trieste) runs the biggest race of her career and wins the 1 1/4 miles $750K Grade I Delaware Handicap July 12, 2014. Jockey Jose Ortiz rode her beautifully as he sent her out to set the pace from the inside post. Flashy American gave chase but only applied mild pressure while high weight and heavy favorite Princess Of Sylmar was being rated from between horses in 5th up the back stretch. Princess Of Sylmar was set down as they rounded the turn and tried to go up between Belle Gallantey and Flashy American but half way around the turn both of those mares accelerated and the narrow opening the 'Princess' was going to go through closed. Belle Gallantey was in full flight to the finish, Flashy American could not stay with her, and the 'Princess' had to re rally along the outside. Belle Gallantey was drawing away down the stretch and Princess of Sylmar was narrowing the gap but time had run out and Belle Of Gallantey wins by 2 3/4 lengths, Princess Of Sylmar got up to edge Flashy American for 2nd by a neck. Belle Gallantey has now been to the post a remarkable 41 times and has a record of 8-12-7. She has earned $866,270 on the race track. A popular horse from coast to coast through the claim box she has changed hands 6 times in her career. In an AOC on December 19th at Aqueduct, she was claimed for 35k by trainer Rudy Rodriguez for owner Michael Dubb. Trainer Rodriquez apparently had the 'key' to this mare as she then rattled off 3 consecutive victories in an ALW, St ALW, and an AOC (no tag). They then stepped her up to the G1 Ogden Phipps were she finished 5th on June 7th at Belmont Park before winning the Delaware Handicap. Jose Ortiz has been her regular rider since coming to trainer Rodriguez' barn. Belle Gallantey is owned by Michael Dubb, Bethlehem Stables, and Gary Aisquith. She was bred by Pam & Martin Wygod.
