Beckon steps Forward on debut

Group 1 winner Headway gave early warning of Charge Forward ‘s liking for mares by

Flying Spur , and today her full brother repeated the message with a six-length debut win at Echuca in 59.88 seconds for the 1012 metres.

Like his sister, 3YO colt Beckon was bred by Stuart Ramsey at Turangga Farm from Chatelaine, a three-time winner and twice Group-placed in Sydney. Trainer Peter Moody paid $500,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale for Beckon who races in the colours made famous by Makybe Diva for Makybe Racing & Breeding Pty Ltd, Laurel Oak Light Brigade, Mr D M Puglisi, Eales Racing Pty Ltd, Mr A G Charlton, Mr J W Purchase and Mr B W Harry.

The Charge Forward/Flying Spur cross has now produced five winners from nine runners, including Headway and the Group 1-placed 2YO stakeswinner Fort Lincoln.

As a grandson of Roberto from a Bletchingly mare, Charge Forward offers a potent outcross for mares laden with Northern Dancer. And he’s already the sire of ten stakes performers from 133 runners.
