The superbly bred Best Ever has begun his career in style with a three-quarter of a length victory at Pakenham on August 18.
A son of Snitzel and out of the eight-time group one winner More Joyous, Best Ever is the third galloper out of the champion mare to hit the race track following Woman (also won on debut) and More Sundays who's prevailed in two of nine career starts to date.
After jumping well albeit over-racing a little under jockey Luke Nolen who was able to eventually place the colt outside the early leader, Best Ever reeled in Moving Day with ease and held a safe margin on the runner-up Queen Of Rocks who was group competitive last time in.
Speaking to Racing.com post the win was trainer Peter Moody who attributed a key gear for the forward showing of Best Ever.
"A month or six weeks ago, I was questioning what he had under the bonnet but since we put the blinkers on him he has turned a corner in his last couple of gallops," Moody said.
"I've got to thank Brian Werner who rides a lot of work for us who picked him up and got him going for us."
Best Ever is owned by John Singleton (Strawberry Hill Stud) and is expected to now be targeted towards a Benchmark 64 whilst he continues to develop.
