Japan trip off for Hong Kong superstar

Beauty Generation won't be seen in the Yasuda Kinen this year.

Hong Kong champion Beauty Generation will not embark on a Group 1 Yasuda Kinen raid next month, says owner Patrick Kwok Ho-chuen.

Kwok released a public statement on Saturday, May 4.

Trainer John Moore said: “The horse is not going to Japan. He’s had a long season and we want to have a horse for next season to put together the same number of wins and the same programme as we did this time around.

“He has a break now, he won’t go to China, he will stay here, keep him ticking over because he can be a bit naughty if he’s left doing nothing,” Moore said.
