Beauty Generation Wins Gr1 Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup
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) fought back after being headed in the straight to post a brave win in the HK$10 million Gr1 Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup (1400m), defeating Beat The Clock & Fifty Fifty. Purchased for $60,000 at the 2014 NZB Select Yearling Sale, Beauty Generation (who raced as Montaigne in Australia) improved his record to 8 wins (including the Gr1 Hong Kong Mile, Gr2 Sha Tin Trophy & Gr3 HKJC Celebration Cup) and 7 placings (including the Gr1 Rosehill Guineas & Hong Kong Derby) from 20 starts for $5,273,640 in earnings.
