On Boxing Day she won the Gr.1 Zabeel Classic (2000m) at Ellerslie with Concert Hall, and on Wednesday the Graeme and Debbie Rogerson-trained Beauden won the Taupo Cup (2000m) emphatically in front of a bumper crowd.
The son of Bullbars began well from barrier six for jockey Ryan Elliot to settle outside early pacemaker Mongolianconqueror.
Elliot let his charge loose at the 600m marks and he quickly opened up several lengths over his rivals and didn’t relinquish his advantage, posting a comfortable four-length victory.
While the race and track don’t carry the same prestige as her earlier victory, the win was enjoyable nonetheless for Egan, and now Beauden will attempt to make it back-to-back wins in the Listed Marton Cup (2200m) at Awapuni next month.
It was Beauden’s second run this preparation and Rogerson has been pleased with the way he has returned following his break after a substandard run in the Gr.1 Livamol Classic (2040m) in October.
Rogerson will be vying for more stakes glory in the Gr.2 Valachi Downs Royal Stakes (2000m) with Arancia and Ezdara.
