The track press release:
Godolphin’s homebred Matareya put away the pacesetting Lady Scarlet at the top of the stretch and drew off to score an 8½-length victory in the 37th running of the $400,000 Beaumont (G3) Presented by Keeneland Select for 3-year-old fillies Sunday afternoon.
Trained by Brad Cox and ridden by Flavien Prat, Matareya completed the Beard Course of 7 furlongs, 184 feet over a fast track in 1:27.55. It is the first victory in the Beaumont for Cox and Prat.
It is the second stakes victory of the opening weekend of the 15-day Spring Meet for Cox and the third for Prat.
Matareya grabbed the lead at the start, but Lady Scarlet pushed through on the inside to lead the field through fractions of :22.87 and :46.61.
On the far turn, Matareya began to creep closer and drew on even terms at the top of the stretch at which point Prat took a quick peek over his right shoulder to see if any pursuers were coming.
No pursuers were coming, and Matareya and Prat had an unpressured run to the wire.
The victory was worth $241,800 and increased Matareya’s earnings to $374,267 with a record of 6-3-2-0. Matareya is a Kentucky-bred daughter of Pioneerof the Nile out of the Bernardini mare Innovative Idea.
Matareya returned $4.20, $2.60 and $2.40. Radio Days, ridden by Joel Rosario, returned $3.40 and $3 and finished 1¾ lengths ahead of Reagan’s Decision, who paid $4.60 to show under Luis Saez.
Lady Scarlet finished another three-quarters of a length back in fourth and was followed in order by Majestic d’Oro, Gina Romantica and Chi Town Lady.
