Beat The Storm Wins Belmont Sprint
In Australia, ill-fated former Durham Lodge stallion Scenic (Sadler's Wells-Idyllic, by Foolish Pleasure) added a group success (& 59th individual stakes-winner, 48 in Australia) when 4YO gelding Beat The Storm (Scenic-Stormy Business, by Metal Storm) made it 4 successive victories when he gained the judge's verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Gr3 Belmont Sprint (1400m) at Belmont Park in Perth. Beat The Storm (ridden by Patrick Carbery for trainer Ross Price) scored by a long-neck from fellow 4YO gelding Ripped (Second Empire-Surfside Lady, by Pago Pago) with a further long-neck to 5YO mare Is Amazing (Laranto-Isabo, by Is It True). Beat The Storm (bred by trainer Price) now has 8 wins & 5 runner-ups from 16 starts for $277,120 prize-money.
