Golden Sixty stamped himself as one of the best horses across the world with a dominant win in the Hong Kong Mile at Sha Tin on Sunday.

Settling at the back of the field, the five-year-old gelding made it win number 14 from 15 starts when charging past his opposition down the home straight.

Trained by K W Lui, the son of Medaglia D'Oro was given a beautiful ride by Vincent Ho who enjoyed a massive day himself riding four winners in the card.

After producing a peach of a ride aboard Authentic Champ in race two, Ho took out the Hong Kong Mile on Golden Sixty and finished the card with two consecutive victories in races eight and nine, guiding home Winning Dreamer and ex-Australian Tourbillon Diamond (formerly Eric The Eel).

While Golden Sixty stamped himself as a world class horse with his first Group One win, former champion miler and eight time Group One winner Beauty Generation's career came to a close after finishing fifth in the race.

The two-times Hong Kong Horse of the Year and winner of HK$105,000,000 (AUD $4,765,722), connections announced Sunday's Hong Kong Mile would be Beauty Generations final career start before retirement.

A former champion miler, the eight-year-old gelding will be remembered as being one of the strongest and toughest horses across the world, nearly unbeatable when bowling along out front at his best.
