Beaded Wins 2010 BRC Sprint

May 24th, 2010

In the closing race at Doomben Racecourse on Saturday, Peter Snowden’s consistent mare Beaded secured a narrow win in the $125,000 Group 3 Darley BRC Sprint (1350m).

A four-year-old daughter of boom sire Lonhro, Beaded started as the clear $2.90 favourite and held on to defeat the fast approaching $14 outsider Secrets Untold by a long head with Drenalin ($13) a further three-quarter lengths back in third.

The BRC Sprint gave a good insight into many of the runners’ chances in the lead-up to the coveted $1 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on June 12, for which Ortensia is still the $5 early favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Beaded is entered in the Stradbroke, currently a $16 chance with Ladbrokes.com.au, but Snowden could possibly skip the race in favour of the $500,000 Group 1 Winter Stakes (1400m) on June 26.

Beaded has now finished in the top three at all her 13 races including eight wins

Beaded, who has now finished in the top three at all her 13 races including eight wins for $441,680 in earnings, was one of many interstate raiders who saw success at the Kirks Doomben Cup Day on Saturday.

The headline race at the meeting, the $500,000 Group 1 Doomben Cup (2020m), was taken out by Rosehill-based gelding Metal Bender, trained by Chris Waller who also saw success in the $150,000 Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) with talented two-year-old Pressday and the $125,000 Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) with up and coming colt Stryker.
