Raced over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. Finished 6th out of 10 runners.

Raced over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Finished 4th out of 10 runners.

February 2nd, 2022
Raced over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She is a very difficult filly and needs to behave herself on race day. Very disappointing run and I feel she is better than that performance.
January 3rd, 2021
Raced over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the turf. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She needed the run. Muzi Yeni said we must go back to a 1000m with her.
December 13th, 2021
Raced over 1600m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: I think you can forgive her for her poor run. She ran over the wrong distance, I don’t think that she has been given a fair chance to show her ability as 1200m is her best distance and she has never run over the distance since her win.
November 22nd, 2021
Raced over 1700m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on the polytrack. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: She was a long way back and never found much up the straight. I feel it’s too far for her and she is a better filly on the turf.
September 29th, 2021
She had her first run out the maidens over 1400m on the polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville. She raced from a handy position and did not go on with the effort. That was her first effort on the surface and the conditions on the day may not have suited her. She is a lot better than the run shows and should bounce back to best form in her next outing. See the replay here.
September 15th, 2021
She shed her maiden tag in fine style at Hollywoodbets Greyville this afternoon. She was given a confident ride by Anton Marcus and brought to the course in perfect condition by Hollywoodbets-sponsored trainer Alyson Wright. Well done to the breeders Lammerskraal Stud. Also, a big well done to Krystl at Hollywoodbets Kingsmead and the Hollywoodbets Dolphins Team.
July 3rd, 2021
She took her place in the Grade 2 Zulu Kingdom Explorer Golden Slipper. She lost a length at the start and never got into the race. When returning to Maiden Company, she should be competitive. See the replay here.
June 12th, 2021
She took on much stronger in the Listed The Lighthouse Foundation Devon Air Stakes over 1400m. She was slow into stride, but the manner in which she finished off her race was encouraging. The daughter of Visionaire should be competitive in Maiden Company next time. See the replay here.
May 23rd, 2021
She made her racing debut at Hollywoodbets Scottsville over 1200m. She was restless in the barriers before the race. The manner in which she finished off her race was promising. She will come on with the run under her belt and there should be plenty of improvement to come.
February 4th, 2021
Kingsmeads Krystl, previously known as Belle Tango coming along nicely. Here she is, moving up on the inside, alongside her stable companion.
January 19th, 2021
Belle Tango is coming along nicely. She has strengthened up well over the summer and seems to be handling every challenge thrown her way.
October 19th, 2020
She is currently being spelled in the Western Cape, before we bring her into full training. Based with Sally Bruss, who has decades of experience with preparing horses for their racing careers, she seems to be maturing nicely and will turn into a very racy filly over the next few weeks.
