Promising two-year-old filly Beyond The Sea seems assured of a bright future after she gave a stylish frontrunning performance to win the $18,000 Simmonds Steel Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday afternoon.

Bred and owned by Trevor Lindsay’s Karnup Racing Pty Ltd and trained by Murray Lindau, Beyond The Sea, the $2 favourite, was driven confidently by Kyle Harper.       

She led comfortably from the No. 1 barrier, sped over the lead time in 36.5sec. and then reeled off quarters of 29.8sec., 29.5sec., 28.5sec. and 28.2sec. She was not extended in winning by one and a half lengths from $5 chance Taking the Miki, who fought on determinedly after working hard in the breeze.

Beyond The Sea rated a slick 1.55.2 which smashed the 2130m course record for two-year-old fillies, the 1.56.7 rated by Wonderful To Fly when she beat Paul Edward by five and a half lengths on September 3 this year. Beyond The Sea is by American sire Sunshine Beach and is the second foal out of the Christian Cullen mare Robyns C C, who raced 56 times for 13 wins, 22 placings and $122,578 in stakes. Robyns C C won three times in New Zealand and her ten wins in Western Australia included six in a row in the space of three months in 2013.
