Beauty Generation appeared to be in fine fettle at Sha Tin this morning (Tuesday, 19 March), galloping with his usual impressive rhythm through a 1000-metre barrier trial.
“He’s doing it all so easily at the moment and he’s enjoying what he’s doing,” jockey Zac Purton said.
“This trial was better than his last trial before his previous race. He’d had a few runs and done a fair bit of work going into the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Cup, so that load was starting to take its toll, but he’s had a nice freshen up.”
The six-year-old is the co-highest rated horse in the world for the year so far thanks to impressive wins in the G1 Stewards’ Cup and last month’s G1 Queen’s Silver Jubilee Cup. And the Road To Rock gelding, rolling on a seven-win streak, was all class and power as he passed the post ahead of five fellow triallists in a time of 59.41s.
“He just did what he needed to do and had his usual good blow,” trainer John Moore said.
