She’s a Beauty

Talented filly Beauty remained unbeaten with a narrow, but impressive, win at Bendigo on Wednesday, October 10.

The Tony McEvoy-trained three-year-old, a winner at Gawler on debut in May, was resuming and gave a solid performance to score her second victory.

Ridden by Luke Currie, Beauty ($12) had a nose to spare in winning The Big Screen Company Benchmark 70 Handicap (1100m) from the red-hot $1.75 favourite Fine Dane with Turn The Tide ($6), 1-1/4 lengths away third.

Currie was seen to advantage on Beauty giving her a perfect ride.

After a sound beginning, Beauty accelerated to be just off the lead turning for home before Currie asked her to sprint and she quickly put paid to the inside runners.

The runner-up came late but the post arrived in time.

Melbourne stable form Michael Shepherdson said the filly had turned in a “really good” effort.

“Luke assessed the situation early and held his position which meant several of the other runners had tough runs,” Shepherdson said.

“Beauty is still learning about racing and got a bit hot pre-race but still got the job done.

“Tony has always liked the filly and will gradually step her up in class. He will see how she comes through today’s race before looking for her next run.”

Winning jockey Luke Currie agreed the filly had more improvement.

“She got a bit lost at times,” Currie said. “The breeze blew her around a bit.

“I’m sure she can continue to improve and I’m certain Tony will place her to advantage.”  

Beauty was bred at Glastonbury Farm by highly respected thoroughbred identity Duncan Grimley.

The filly is raced on lease by Clint McEvoy, nephew of Tony and cousin of Calvin, with a few friends from Streaky Bay, along with Kildalton Park Racing.
