Alpha Beat Wins Listed Adelaide Guineas

Monday, 5th May 2014

At Morphettville in South Australia, Eliza Park's Gr1 Galaxy-winning stallion Magnus (Flying Spur-Scandinavia, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 3YO gelding Alpha Beat (Magnus-Silverbeat, by Distant Music) scored by 0.2-length for trainer Anthony Cummings in the $80,000 Listed Adelaide Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs, over 3YO filly Lady Lakshmi (Lonhro-Dashing Granada, by Keltrice) & fellow 3YO gelding Tikitour (Dane Shadow-Gone Wild, by Viscount). This was a well-deserved maiden stakes victory for the talented Alpha Beat who took his record to 3 wins and 1 placing (the Gr2 Autumn Classic) from 8 starts for $137,500 earnings. Alpha Beat, who is a half-brother to Gr2 Autumn Classic winner Upbeat, was purchased by Anthony Cummings Thoroughbreds for $120,000 at the 2012 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Eliza Park.
