Mehmas's Beauty Inspire Takes The Anglesey


Beauty Inspire |


Hammered down to 1-2 favourite for Saturday's G3 Jebel Ali Racecourse and Stables Anglesey S. at The Curragh following his impressive winning debut over six furlongs here June 25, Beauty Inspire (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire}) duly landed the gamble after a tussle with Andreas Vesalius (Ire) (Caravaggio) and Hadman (Ire) (Starspangledbanner {Aus}). Keen early tracking that duo, the Ger Lyons trainee looked poised for a facile win two out but ultimately had to work to get to the front passing the furlong pole. Grinding it out from there, the Beauty Stable Partnership's chestnut had 1 1/4 lengths to spare over the former in a race marred by the injury to the filly Daisy Peers (GB) (New Bay {GB}). “I was a little bit disappointed he was keen, as beforehand he goes down like a lamb,” commented Keane, who was initiating a group-race double on the card. “He doesn't usually do that at home. He is only a baby and having his second racecourse start, so maybe he was a little bit fresh and eager to get on with it. I was impressed the way he toughed it out considering the way he did it. I'd like to think you would see a better horse the next day with that experience under his belt hopefully.”

Assistant trainer Shane Lyons added, “He wasn't as visually impressive as the first day, but the first day was only a maiden. To be honest, it looks like he hasn't learned an awful lot from the first day. He was very keen in the race and probably disappointed himself a little, as he's a horse that can't hit the front too soon because he's still a baby. He did fight for Colin after. He's a Christian at home and he's obviously a very good horse. We'll take him home and let him tell us when he's ready again. It could be the [G1] Phoenix [at The Curragh Aug. 8] or the [G1] Middle Park [at Newmarket Sept. 25]. He has entries in York as well. Colin said he loved the ground, which is a help. He's a lovely horse, we knew that the first day and we would have been disappointed today if he had been beaten.”

Beauty Inspire is out of Darwell (Ire) (Zamindar), who is a daughter of the G2 Queen Mary S.-placed Ceedwell (GB) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}) from the family of the German group 3-winning sprinter Mis Gazon (Ire) (Royal Academy). Her yearling colt is by Dragon Pulse (Ire).
