Malahat Gives Beadman First Win

By Brad Gray

Hall Of Fame jockey Darren Beadman trained his first winner on Wednesday at Canterbury, having taken over the reins of Australia’s Godolphin operation.

Two-year-old colt Malahat took control of the race from the outset, with Tye Angland on board, and never looked in danger of being beaten. It was a Godolphin quinella with first starter Kementari filling second.

“He is a quality colt and very classy. He had race experience but it was a very professional effort,” Beadman said of the winner.

“I’m very honoured and chuffed to be given this opportunity by Sheik Mohammed and all of the Godolphin team, John Ferguson and Henry (Plumbtree). It’s very special.”

Malahat ran third in the Group Three Canonbury Stakes behind Pariah and Menari last preparation before finishing only 1.6L off subsequent Sires’ Produce winner Invader at Randwick. Kementari, who was well supported in betting with TAB to start race favourite, is a half-brother to Telperion and should take plenty of benefit from his first race day outing.

Earlier on the card at Canterbury, Richard Freedman trained his first winner in 22 years with three-year-old Forever New producing an impressive debut. The well-bred Dream Ahead youngster is out of Group One-winning mare Ofcourseican.
