Beauty Generation puts in a performance for the ages with back-to-back victories

Beauty Generation wins the Hong Kong Mile
1 of 1

Breathtaking, awe-inspiring, brilliant. That's not hyperbole when describing Beauty Generation's Hong Kong Mile demolition job – in fact, it may not even do him justice.

It may not have been the result the British wanted, but what a result for racing as John Moore's stable star – not an easy title to earn – put in a flawless performance to win back-to-back renewals of the race by three lengths under a hands and heels ride from Zac Purton.

John Moore: trainer of the outstanding Beauty Generation

It was an ice cool performance from the jockey who, unfazed by his draw in stall 12, took his time out wide in the early stages before easing his way to the front. From then on the eventual result never looked in doubt.

"That's what we all hoped we would see today," said Purton of the 1-2 favourite. "I'm just happy for the horse that's he's come out on the big stage and showed everyone how brutally good he can be.

"His high cruising speed is his best attribute, he's very comfortable rolling along at that speed and then he can still kick off it. For the horses at the back of the field they're already struggling to keep up with the pace, then they've got to try to reel him back in. It's not an easy thing to do."

Moore, a seven-time champion trainer in Hong Kong, seemed as awestruck as the crowd at what his horse had achieved.

"That's the most impressive [performance] I've seen so far," said Moore, adding that Beauty Generation had even surpassed the achievements of his champion miler Able Friend. "Taken on on the inside, he had to do it the hard way as far as I'm concerned, but once he hit the front and those high RPMs, away he went."

Racing fans keen for another glimpse of Beauty Generation may need to start booking flights, with Moore nominating the Dubai Turf in March as a first potential international foray.

Japanese mare Vivlos was best of the rest under William Buick, just pipping local runner Southern Legend by a neck for second.


Full result and analysis


British runners One Master and Beat The Bank finished eighth and 11th respectively under Ryan Moore and Oisin Murphy, with Silvestre de Sousa in ninth on Singapore Sling.

One Master's trainer William Haggas said: "Ryan said she got upset in the stalls, which would explain why she was far back in the early stages, but she ran on well in the straight.

"She stays in training and her owners have now got the travel bug, so we'll be able to have some fun planning for next year."
