Beautide - Horse of the year in Tasmania for the second year in a row

Beautide, the champion Tasmanian-bred gelding who again dominated on the national scene during the 2014-15 season, was last night named horse of the year for the second year in succession at the annual awards presentation dinner at Wrest Point Hotel Casino on Saturday night.

Beautide also was recently named Australian horse of the year for the second season in succession.

The star pacer was bred by Barrie Rattray at Longford and is raced by the Rattray Family Trust.

The now eight-year-old dominated in Tasmania during his juvenile years before heading to NSW where he is trained by the breeder's son James Rattray who has prepared him to win the past two Inter Dominion Championships.

Last season Beautide again won the $750,000 Group 1 Inter Dominion final at Menangle and recorded a spectacular win in the Group 1 $100,000 Coca-Cola Amatil Sprint.

He also won an Inter Dominion heat win and was victorious in the Nick Robin FFA and Paul Fitzpatrick FFA at Menangle.

Beautide unfortunately has not fully recovered from a leg injury that will prevent him from attempting to win a third successive Inter Dominion in Western Australia in December.
