SOUTHERN Legend denied Beauty Generation in a thrilling renewal of the Group 1 FWD Champions Mile at Sha Tin.
The John Moore-trained Beauty Generation was bidding for a third successive win in the eight-furlong showpiece and settled on the heels of Ka Ying Star through the early exchanges. Waikuku also broke well before being taken back.

Zac Purton still had plenty of horse underneath him on the favourite two furlongs out, but Southern Legend threw down a strong challenge a furlong and a half out and while Beauty Generation refused to give in, Vincent Ho’s mount had his head down at the right time on the line.
Waikuku was third, with Rattan fourth.
