Bellamy Road won one of the most impressive runnings of the Wood Memorial Stakes (G1) in racing history. At two the dark bay Florida-bred won the Miller Genuine Draft Cradle Stakes (G3) at River Downs owned by George Steinbrenner’s Kinsman Stable and trained by Michael Dickinson, with Abel Castellano, Jr. riding. At three, trained by Nick Zito, he dominated the prestigious Wood Memorial (G1), controlling the pace and pulling away effortlessly, piloted by Javier Castellano. His record for a mile and an eighth in 1:47:00 still stands. Though Giacomo won the 2005 Derby, Bellamy Road ran a strong Travers, setting the pace and holding on nearly to the finish. He retired with 4 wins and 1 second in his 7 starts and $811,400. At stud at WinStar Farm and Hurricane Hall in Kentucky, then Irish Hill & Dutchess Views Stallions in New York, he sired Toby’s Corner, Constellation, Old Friends retiree Diversify and other stakes winners. Old Friends thanks Jessica Steinbrenner, Irish Hill & Dutchess View Stallions, and Elliott Walden for facilitating Bellamy Road’s retirement with us.

The “Bellamy Road” Hat by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®

With a message from Old Friends...

We continue this month with our “Ladies of Old Friends” theme featuring the hard-working ladies of Dream Chase Farm as hat models. And who better to impart the true spirit of Old Friends and the distinct personalities of our beloved retirees than those who care for them every day? This month’s hat is dedicated to Bellamy Road and assistant farm manager, Tammy Crump who straddles duties at the main farm as well as our annex farm nearby. She and her husband James, our grounds manager, are invaluable members of our team.

"I had never been around horses in my life until I came to Old Friends and I just fell in love with them. All the horses have such a special place in my heart. I enjoy everyday here because I get to care for such amazing animals."
~ Tammy Crump

Thank you to Tammy Crump for modeling for us and to Laura Battles for her stunning images of Tammy and Bellamy Road.
