Progressive Firebeam strikes again

10/07/11 - Overbury and Dukes Stud-bred three-year-old wins impressively at York

Firebeam continued his rise through the ranks on Saturday when winning a competitive seven-furlong hadicap at York by four and a half lengths.

This was the second consecutive win for the three-year-old son of Cadeaux Genereux, who won his maiden at Lingfield in June by six lengths and has been placed on his only other two starts.

Bred in partnership by Dukes Stud and Overbury Stallions Ltd, Firebeam is out of the Nicolotte mare Firebelly and is a half-brother to the dual winner Bombina.

Having been raised at Overbury, he fetched 62,000gns as a foal and when returned to the sales ring the following year, he was knocked down to Highclere Thoroughbred Racing for 100,000gns.

His performance came in for praise in the Racing Post, which stated: “Firebeam is going to get hit hard by the handicapper, but it may not stop him as he´s evidently a gelding very much on the up, quickening clear in ready fashion. Useful after just four starts, there´s more to come and he could be making his mark outside handicaps before long.”
