R.I.P Beaux Art

West Australian Racing
I noticed that the great WA staying mare BEAUX ART passed away a few days ago.

A few big race wins in the mid-90’s including:

1994 WA Oaks
1994 WA Derby
1995 AJC St Leger
1995 Feehan Stks

Also some placings in big races:

3rd in the 1995 Caulfield Cup behind Doriemus
3rd in the 1996 Sydney Cup behind Count Chivas
2nd in the 1996 Turnbull Stks behind Doriemus

A great career - 37:9-3-4 for $782,460

    Trainer David Harrison is confident improving mare Snowchino will reign supreme when she clashes with in-form gelding The Fugazi at Belmont Park today.

    In one of the more exciting clashes of today’s meeting, Snowchino and The Fugazi will both chase three consecutive wins in the Mark Shreeve 50th Birthday Handicap (1600m).

    Snowchino bolted in by two lengths in a midweek race before leading all the way to thrash her rivals by almost three lengths last start on July 20.

    However, she is the $3.70 second favourite with TABtouch behind The Fugazi ($2.30), who has also won his past two starts brilliantly.

    “I think she’s going to be hard to beat again,” Harrison said.

    “She just got beat at her last start over the mile.

    “She’s always been a work in progress and she’s improved every prep. At this stage I don’t know how good she’ll be.

    “She’s gaining confidence every start and when mare’s are in good form, it’s hard to tip them out. She can sustain a high cruising speed for longer than most.”

    A winner at four of 11 starts, Snowchino jumps from barrier two and will again be ridden by Jason Whiting.

    She rises 3kg on her most recent victory.

    Harrison’s only query is a firmer track. Belmont was rated a soft 6 yesterday but is expected to improve with clear weather.

    “She’s won her last couple of starts on soft tracks,” Harrison said. “Whether she’s as affective on a good track, I’m not sure.”

    Harrison also has solid claims with On The Turps in today’s Crown Perth Handicap (1400m).

    “His last run behind The Fugazi was good and he needs a good, genuine speed to be a chance,” Harrison said.

    Outstanding WA mare Beaux Art died at owner Geoff Evans’ property on Thursday night at the age of 28.

    Beaux Art won the WA Oaks, WATC Derby and AJC St Leger in track record time and ran third in the Caulfield Cup and Sydney Cup for trainer David Edwards. She is the dam of current WA stallion Proart and Eye Art, who races at Belmont today.

    Trainer Paige Kenney will face a stewards’ inquiry after her mare Thunder Boom tested positive to frusemide after her Northam win on May 30.
