Beaded to Head to Breeding Barn Without Tiara

Connections of last Saturday’s beaten Tattersall’s Tiara favourite Beaded, including trainer Peter Snowden, are leaning towards retirement for the ultra-consistent mare who with an impressive record of six Group 1 places and also an elite level win to her name will make a very valuable broodmare.

Lonhro five-year-old Beaded continued her exalted career last Saturday when beaten in the final stride by now triple elite level winning filly Yosei in the closing Group 1 race of the season, Eagle Farm’s $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m).

Starting the odds-on $1.95 favourite for the Tatt’s Tiara, Beaded has amazingly finished out of the money just once in her 22 career starts to date.

After breaking her Group 1 maiden with a brave win in the Doomben 10,000 (1250m) on May 28, Beaded went into Saturday’s Tatt’s Tiara on the back of a narrow second to boom three-year-old Sincero in the $1 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

Last year’s Stradbroke Handicap is the only race that Beaded failed to finish in the top three in when she was less than a half-length away fourth to dual winner Black Piranha.

She has eight-times raced at the highest level, Beaded’s Group 1 runs resulting in one victory, three seconds, three thirds and her 2010 Stradbroke Handicap fourth.

Another incredible statistic surrounding Beaded’s turf record is that the biggest margin she has ever been beaten by is only four lengths, when she ran third to superstar sprinter Black Caviar in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on March 12 of this year.

In her customary never-say-die racing style Beaded and jockey Corey Brown were there until the very end in the Tattersall’s Tiara, which may turn out to be her swansong race appearance, the classy mare beaten into second by just a half-head.

“She ran great,” Snowden said.

“The speed was on and she was out in time to have her shot.

“There are no excuses.”

With over $1.5 million in prize money to her name, Beaded is now likely to bow out to the breeding barn according to Snowden who is set to meet with the owner Sheikh Mohammed’s Australian Darley Racing managers this week.

“At the moment I’m leaning towards retiring her,” Snowden confirmed.

“I’ll have a talk (with owners) but I favour tipping her out now.

“I think she has done her job on the track where she has been punching far beyond her weight all this time.”
