Beautide had a stellar season winning the Miracle Mile-Inter Dominion double and capped his winning streak with victory in the Len Smith to give him three Group 1 victories for the season to ensure he will be voted Australasian Horse of the Year.
The-trained gelding will be set for a similar campaign that he endured this season.
The rising seven-year-old has amassed stake earnings of $1.338 million with his record of 40 wins and 10 minor placings from 60 starts making him one of the best performed Tasmanian-bred pacers of all time.
Beautide (-Gorse Bush) was bred by the Rattray Family Trust at the family's trainer-breeding complex at Longford, just south of Launceston in central Tasmania.
Beautide is expected to have three or four trials before he lines up in a race.
His trial is scheduled to start at 5.40 pm today and is likely to be shown on Sky Channel 1 during a news bulletin.
