Greg Tomlinson's Nearco Stud bred the winners of both feature races at Sha Tin on Tuesday night.
Beauty Generation made a winning return taking out the Gr.3 Celebration Cup Handicap (1400m).
The brilliant bay brushed off the burden of 60kg, as well as large weight concessions to all his rivals, and surged to victory in a track record 1m 20.05s.
“He’s just an amazing horse. To do what he does defies logic to a certain degree,” jockey Zac Purton said.
“He’s one out of the box, he’s gone into this the heaviest he’s ever weighed-in in his life, off one soft 1000m trial, carrying the grandstand against horses carrying feather weights on their backs.
“We only just started to see the best of him at the end of last season, so I believe he’s still got plenty ahead of him now.”
It was the tenth win on end for the son of Road to Rock and trainer John Moore is now looking forward to aiming for a third win in December’s Gr.1 Longines Hong Kong Mile (1600m).
“That’s the first part of the mission accomplished,” Moore said.
“We’re right on target now to go and do what we did last season. Let’s move on to the next one, the Group Two mile on 20 October, and then the Mile trial (Gr.2 Jockey Club Mile) in November.”
Moore is also keen to campaign the dual Hong Kong Horse of the Year internationally.
“He’s the best in Hong Kong and he’s one of the best in the world,” Moore said. “They’ve got to come to beat him in December and if the owner agrees, we’ll take him to Dubai and prove him on the world stage.
“That’s definitely in my diary, if everything goes to plan up to then. It’s the twilight of my career and I’d love to take him overseas and win a Group One.”
Earlier in the evening Full of Beauty became the 4oth individual stakes winner for The Oaks Stud's resident stallion Darci Brahma when successful in the Gr.3 National Day Cup Handicap (1000m)
Full Of Beauty won his first five races in Hong Kong last season, placed second in his next two and rounded out his four-year-old campaign with a sound fourth. All of those efforts were at 1200m and took his rating from 54 to 103.
After making it one win from one run at the minimum trip, Moreira believes there should be more to come from the gelding.
“He’s not fully tuned yet, there’s still some improvement in him and that’s a nice situation to be in,” he said.
“He’s an up-and-coming horse and he has potential. It’s hard to predict what his top rating will be but I can say that he’s heading forward.” -NZ Racing Desk, NZTBA
