Former Windsor Park Stud stallion Mastercraftsman secured his ninth individual Group One winner as a sire yesterday when A Raving Beauty won the Gr. 1 Just A Game Stakes at Belmont.
It was the first victory at elite level for last year’s champion older female in Germany, who has gone two from two in her North American career after winning at her last start in the Gr. 3 Beaugay Stakes at Belmont.
"We took our time with her since she's come into the programme, and she's really taken to it well," trainer Chad Brown said.
"I've been impressed with her development, and each of her works has gotten better. We showed a lot of confidence with her first time in this country, putting her in a graded stakes last time, and she delivered and ran really well.”
