Beauty School Wins Blue Diamond Preview (F)
Coolmore shuttler Royal Academy (Nijinsky-Crimson Saint, by Crimson Satan) added a juvenile black-type success when daughter Beauty School (Royal Academy-Salamore, by Vain) gained the verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Listed Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) for 2YO fillies at Caulfield. Beauty School (ridden by Craig Williams for trainer David Hayes) scored by a half-head from favourite Behind (General Nediym-Happy Spring, by Rory's Jester) with a further short-head to Familial (Encosta de Lago-Cousins, by Danehill). Beauty School (a $165,000 yearling at the 2006 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 1 win & 2 stakes-placings (in the 2006 Listed Debutants Stakes over 1000m at Caulfield & Listed Jayco Sprint over 1000m at Flemington) from 3 starts for $87,500 earnings.
