At Sha Tin racecourse in Hong Kong, Wellfield Lodge's dual Gr1-winning stallion Road to Rock (Encosta de Lago-Trewornan, by Midyan) celebrated an elite race success when 5YO New Zealand-bred gelding Beauty Generation (Road to Rock-Stylish Bel, by Bel Esprit) simply outclassed his rivals when scoring a dominant front-running win in the HK$18 million Gr1 Champions Mile (1600m), defeating Western Express & Southern Legend. It has been a remarkable season for Beauty Generation who has recorded five wins from his past eight outings, including three victories at Group 1 level. Purchased for $60,000 at the 2014 NZB Select Yearling Sale, Beauty Generation (who raced as Montaigne in Australia) improved his record to 9 wins (including the Gr1 Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup, Gr1 Hong Kong Mile, Gr2 Sha Tin Trophy & Gr3 HKJC Celebration Cup) and 7 placings (including the Gr1 Rosehill Guineas & Hong Kong Derby) from 22 starts for $7,021,308 in earnings.
