Debutant BEAST MODE and in-form jockey Martin Harley both made a winning start for the stable at the Sunshine Coast on Friday night.
Off the back of two impressive trials, BEAST MODE had his first taste of competitive action in the QTIS 3YO Maiden Plate (1000m) and promptly got off the mark in nice style at his home track.
Given a confident ride by Harley, riding for Vandyke Racing for the first time after making a strong start to his life in Queensland, BEAST MODE swept to the front at the 400m mark and gave a late kick to win by a length.
The cheque for $25,000 delivered an instant return for Best Bloodstock, who purchased the son of Better Than Ready for $80,000 at the 2021 Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale.
Congratulations to Jarred Magnabosco and the team at Best Bloodstock, and their co-owners: Broady Cats, M C Horse Racing, Mr G A Horan, Mr P S Farrugia, Mr L W Chapman, Mr J K Donnelly, Mr L Brayshaw, Mr M S Newman, Mr J Fleming and Mr R Loebert.
