John Moore Puzzled by Beauty Generation Loss

Monday, 18th November 2019

In Hong Kong, trainer John Moore has expressed his concern for two-time Horse Of The Year Beauty Generation (Road To Rock-Stylish Bel, by Bel Esprit) after the champion gelding was beaten for the second time this preparation when finishing third behind Waikuku and Ka Ying Star in Sunday’s Gr2 Jockey Club Mile at Sha Tin. “When he came into the straight I expected him to kick and put two [lengths] on Waikuku, but he didn’t,” Moore told the South China Morning Post. “There’s two things I can tweak before the big day [the Gr1 Hong Kong Mile next month] and we’ll have him cherry ripe.” Forgiven for his first defeat given the handicap conditions and a tricky resuming run, jockey Zac Purton was happy with how the horse felt on Sunday and is optimistic moving forward. “He’s better than that and at level weights next time, hopefully he can stand up.”
