Champion 2YO Shanghai Bobby added another stylish winner to his resume with a Belmont victory for Mr Pete (2c Shanghai Bobby x Dakota Doll, by Defrere) on the weekend.
A homebred for Nirvana Stables prepared by James Ryerson, Mr Pete was second on debut last month and was able to go one better this time.
He settled off the pace and powered home to win the six furlong maiden by half a length.
The third winner for Shanghai Bobby, Mr Pete is from stakes-placed Dakota Doll, a half-sister to stakes-winner Lovely Fiona.
Shanghai Bobby has made a pleasing start to his stud career and is already the sire of two stakes horses in Spirit of Shanghai and Bobby Ax.
