EXPECTATIONS are above average when you have a filly bred for ground that can sprint early, because it shows a measure of class.
High Seas Beauty (AUS), a R1-million purchase at the 2015 CTS Lanzerac Ready To Run Sale, made a winning debut over 1200m at the Vaal on Saturday, clocking a decent 71,36s, and being by High Chaparral from a mare by Belong To Me, she should excel over further.
High Seas Beauty (JP van der Merwe) ran through well to hold off four more fancied runners in a tight finish and Mathew de Kock commented: “I told the media that she was a nice filly expected to finish in the money, I’m surprised she drifted from 5-1 to 13-1 in the betting.

“We’ll see what rating they give High Seas Beauty, and the we’ll decide on a course of action with her,” he added.
High Seas Beauty was pinhooked as a weanling by Kerry Jack Bloodstock and she tells: “High Seas Beauty was a well-balanced, scopy weanling at the Magic Milions Weanling Sale and I actually went over budget to $75,000 to get her. She comes from the family of Delta Form. She moved very well at the CTS Sale when consigned by Jane Thomas’ Far End Stud and she went for R1-million to Mayfair Speculators. I expected a bit more. She’s beautiful and scopy, I will be watching her career.”
B Twenty One (Randall Simons) completed a double for the stable winning a MR69 Handicap over 2400m by 1.75-lengths and Mathew commented: “She has a handy rating and that will assist her in winning a few more races.”
