The title of being the nation’s fastest male freshman of 2021 now belongs to Beach Glass thanks to the 1:51.1 smokeshow he produced Thursday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

The son of Somebeachsomewhere-Im With Her was 2-for-2 coming into the $16,000 conditioned event – and he was the lone two-year-old in the group. But that didn’t stop him from thrashing the competition – again – for driver Paul MacDonell and trainer Brent MacGrath.

Sent off as the 1-9 favourite, Beach Glass was keen to step forward when the starting gate sped away and he checked in at the quarter pole as the leader in :27.1. He briefly took a backseat to Take A Gamble in the backstretch, but MacDonell was quick to reclaim the top spot with the heavily-favoured youngster.

Beach Glass then marched the field through middle fractions of :56 and 1:24.1 before storming home in :27 to win by 9-1/4 lengths over Fear The Shadow.

The Schooner II Stables’ homebred has racked up $23,500 in his first three assignments. But with the Breeders Crown on the horizon, one of the sport’s most talked about youngsters in recent weeks will be looking to pad that bank account.

Louise Sauve SAID...

So happy for Brent, his wife and best assistant and of course Paul! All the best with BG's future! Not surprise that the Beach's big heart and soul is thinking of those who believe in him!

James Brown SAID...

Wow did the Beach leave us the best for last? I may not need to watch the super finals on Saturday. I may have just watched something more special. All the best to the connections of this two year old colt.

I'll have another Ontario needs racing.
