A faultless performance by General Beau in Tuesday’s Listed Blue Diamond Preview (C&G) at Caulfield has given his sire Brazen Beau his second juvenile Stakes winner inside a week.
Aided by a similarly impressive ride from Jamie Kah, General Beau made the most of his experience and undeniable ability to assert himself in the final stages and score an easy victory over Extreme Warrior.
The win followed that of the Brazen Beau gelding On The Bubbles who took out one of New Zealand’s richest races, the R. Listed Karaka Millions 2YO, at Ellerslie on Saturday.
It also made General Beau his sire’s 11th Stakes winner.
The colt, who had won on debut at Flemington last September, is out of the G3-winning Lonhro mare Phosphorescence, a daughter of the Stakes winner Nediym’s Glow, and was bred by David Moodie’s Contract Racing who retains a share in his ownership.
Brazen Beau stood his latest southern hemisphere season at Northwood Park in Victoria.
