Skymax (Maxios) wins the British Stallion Studs EBF Nursery Handicap (Class 2) at Newmarket for Ralph Beckett and owner Mr Norman Brunskill.
Having his first start in Nursery company after three very promising efforts in maiden and novice races, Skymax showed himself to be a young stayer with plenty of potential here. The colt was settled in the rear through the early exchanges before staying on strongly under Harry Bentley to win by a length.
After the race trainer Beckett said, ”He was flat out at halfway and just finished it off really well. I actually wanted to run him in the maiden half an hour ago, but his owner made me run in this and he was right”.
Skymax was purchased at last year’s BBAG Yearling Sale for €49,000. For a list of upcoming sales, click the link below.
