Noosa Beach Strong in Budweiser

Noosa Beach etched his name into the Emerald Downs record book Sunday with a spectacular 3 ½-length victory in the $50,000 Budweiser Handicap on Father's Day.

The superstar 5-year-old gelding overcame a slow start and challenges from all sides to notch his second straight victory in the one-mile Budweiser, and his record-tying 10th stakes victory at Emerald Downs

Carrying an Emerald Downs' stakes record 125 lbs., Noosa Beach ran one mile in 1:38.09 under Gallyn Mitchell on a track listed wet-fast, and paid $3.20, $2.80 and $2.40. The Washington-bred by Harbor the Gold-Julia Rose is tied with Handy N Bold for most career stakes wins at Emerald Downs, winning nine of his last 10 races including the 2010 Longacres Mile (G3).

Trained by Doris Harwood and owned by Jeff Harwood, Noosa Beach has a 13-3-2 mark in 20 starts with earnings of $435,222. His Emerald Downs record is 17-12-3-1-$394,055.
