DALHAM Hall Stud's shuttle stallion Brazen Beau (by I Am Invincible) became the first freshman sire of 2019 to get off the mark in the UK when his Bryan Smart-trained son Proper Beau made a winning debut at Musselburgh on Tuesday.

The colt won by a neck from the warm favourite Alminoor, the pair finishing seven lengths clear of the third.

Proper Beau, a 34,000gns graduate of Book 3 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, was bred by The Aston House Stud, he is a half-brother to several winners and out of the stakes-placed sprint winner Olivia Grace (by Pivotal).

About 20 minutes later, Highclere Stud stallion Cable Bay (by Invincible Spirit) struck with Lingfield debut scorer Electric Ladybird.

The Archie Watson-trained filly was bred by Rathasker Stud, she made €35,000 at the Goffs Sportsmans Sale, and this daughter of Conversational (by Thousand Words) is a half-sister to the stakes-placed sprint winner Simmy's Copshop (by Bahamian Bounty).

Haras de Colleville's Galiway (by Galileo) was the first of this year's freshman sires to get off the mark anywhere in Europe when his daughter Galiciana made a winning debut at Bordeaux Le Bouscat on Friday.
