Some Major Beach, a half brother to world champion racehorse and sire, Somebeachsomewhere, looked very impressive in his 2014 qualifying race debut Monday morning at Mohawk Raceway.

The three-year-old colt by Major In Art from the Beach Towel mare, Where’s The Beach, was driven by Chris Christoforou for trainer  Mark Steacy. After the opening quarter mile in a mild :30 seconds, Christoforou moved Some Major Beach from third to the front before the half mile marker in :59.1.

From there it was time to kick it up a notch and so they did, holding a two length advantage on the field at the three-quarters in 1:27.4 and then they tore up some track as they came home in :27.1 to win by eight and one-half lengths in 1:54.3.

Owned by Martinez Equine of Mechanicsburg, PA, Robert J. Watson of Ashfield, AU and Muscara Racing Trust of Ivyland, PA, Some Major Beach had just one win as a two-year-old with a record of 1:53.1f and earnings of $132,913. He was third in the Metro Final, Bluegrass Stake, Champlain Stake and the Breeders Crown elimination division.
