Texas Stallion Mr. Besilu Gets First Winner at Canterbury

Mr. Besilu

The first starter for Texas stallion Mr. Besilu turned out to be a winner as his 2-year-old daughter She B Glamorous won a maiden special weight contest on July 20 at Canterbury Park. With Jareth Loveberry up for trainer Francisco Bravo, the Minnesota-bred earned $20,400 for the victory clocked in 1:.07.58 for 5 ½ furlongs. The filly runs for owner Mike Grossman, who bred her in the name of his Eureka Thoroughbred Farm. She B Glamorous is out of the Artie Schiller mare Gold N Glamore, who compiled a record of 9-3-2-1 with two stakes placings and earnings of $74,492 while running for Grossman and Bravo. Mr. Besilu stands at Eureka Thoroughbred Farm in Fredericksburg, Texas, as property Benjamin Leon of Besilu Stables.

A $4.2 million Keeneland yearling, Mr. Besilu is a son of A.P. Indy out of Grade 1 winner and millionaire Balance, who is also a half sister to Horse of the Year Zenyatta. Mr. Besilu hit the board twice in a racing career cut short by injury.
