Appearing as if of myth and legend, the young rare ebony stallion Bellagio RCA never
disappoints spectators of any age. A son of Alixir, he is a wonderful example of the sporty
nature of his foals, and just like his father, loves to play with a Jolly Ball. Bellagio is just
beginning his breeding career as Arabians Ltd.’s junior stallion in residence, though you’d
never know he’s only four by the way he carries himself. He embodies Walter Farley’s
fabled Black Stallion and has made the books come true for children visiting as part of the
childhood reading program The Black Stallion Literacy Project.
As a yearling, Bellagio won the extremely competitive
Egyptian Breeders’ Challenge at the Egyptian Event.
Bellagio’s win in that class began a sweep of this class
that lasted for 3 years, featuring 3 full siblings, and
Bellagio was crowned unanimous Junior Champion Colt
as a two-year-old! In Scottsdale, he came in 3rd in a class
of 30 in open Arabian competition.
