Belladonna Partnership Off and Running

David Ingordo was busy buying juveniles this past spring on behalf of a newly formed racing partnership and, by the final 2-year-olds in training sale of the season last June, the bloodstock agent had purchased six fillies in the name of Belladonna Racing. The sextet, now under the care of trainer Cherie DeVaux, have gotten off to a flyer on the racetrack, with the fledgling partnership’s record currently standing at nine starts and five wins. The group enjoyed a banner day at the track with a pair of winners on the “Stars of Tomorrow II” card at Churchill Downs Saturday.

“A lot of people in Belladonna are new to racehorse ownership, so it’s been a learning experience for them,” DeVaux said. “And they’ve all been great. We had a couple of setbacks as far as Thoroughbred ownership goes, but I couldn’t be more pleased with the success they are having now and how it’s gone so far.”

DeVaux served as an assistant to trainer Chad Brown for eight years before going out on her own in the spring of 2018. One of her initial clients was Paul Manganaro, who helped bring people into the Belladonna partnership which includes some 25 owners.
