Halls unleash future star

Beaudiene Boaz emerged as trainer Gary Hall's possible heir to stable star Im Themightyquinn when he brilliantly won last night's $125,000 Premier Suzuki 2YO Golden Slipper Pace (2130m) at Gloucester Park.

The New Zealand import, making his WA debut, started $2.80 and rated 1:57.3 to score by 11.5m from Mister Ardee ($17.20).

Major Reality, the $2.20 favourite, finished 2.5m back in third place after setting a fast pace.

Beaudiene Boaz moved up to race outside Major Reality about 400m after the start and he drew clear at the 300m post to win running away.

Glenn Moore, who part-owns Im Themightyquinn and Beaudiene Boaz, compared the two pacers.

"I reckon Beaudiene Boaz is showing more than Quinnie did as a youngster," Moore said after last night's win.

"This is the best two-year-old that Gary has trained.

"It was an exceptional performance for a two-year-old to dodge rivals who broke gait, then face the breeze and win with ease.

"We sighted the colt in his early races and tried to buy him. But he was not on the market until after the Emerald Classic in May."

Beaudiene Boaz rated 1:54 to win the $150,000 Classic (1609m) and he broke a Cambridge track record for two-year-olds.

"The Classic win jacked his price up considerably," Moore said. "But Gary was keen to still buy him."

Hall is in Brisbane, where he will start Im Themightyquinn in tonight's $100,000 Blacks A Fake Championship. The nine-year-old is a $1.95 favourite with Tabtouch fixed odds.

"We'll probably now spell Beaudiene Boaz," Moore said. "He deserves a break, after travelling here and winning first-up. He'll be an outstanding three-year-old."

Hall Jr will tonight drive Im Themightyquinn, who heads the market from Suave Stuey Lombo and Mach Beauty, both at $4.50.

Adda Doubletrouble ($54.30) scored a boilover win for trainer Noel Keiley and reinsman Aldo Cortopassi in last night's Award Winning Suzuki Swift Pace (2536m).

He defeated the $2.80 favourite Jasper Freeway by a neck.
