Avonello’s (Belardo-Real Angel by O’Reilly) win the Listed Welcome Stakes at Riccarton on Saturday capped a big week for the LA broodmare Real Angel, whose first foal the Per Incanto mare Angelica, won her maiden race at Te Aroha on Tuesday.

A $30,000 purchase by co-owner Chris Rutten from LA’s 2020 Karaka Book 2 draft, Avonello is raced by Chris, his wife Donna and LA.

An unraced daughter of O’Reilly, Real Angel is a half sister to the LA bred dual Australian stakes winner Marquardt. It is also the family of multiple Group 1 winners Dandy Andy and Ballroom Babe.

Real Angel, who has a Tivaci yearling filly, recently foaled a full brother to Avonello.

Excellent stallions
