Furnaces has lived up to his pre-race hype with a sizzling debut win at Rosehill on Saturday.

And he is unlikely to be the only juvenile star for Godolphin this season, according to assistant trainer Darren Beadman.

“We’ve got a lot of smoking guns back there,” Beadman said.

Backed from $1.65 to start $1.40, Furnaces had to work to get to the front and just when the chasers set their sights on him he found another gear and increased his advantage to score by 6-1/4 lengths from Mine Two.

His time of 1:04.65 was less than half a second outside the class record held by Fighting Sun.

While Godolphin are upbeat about the depth of their two-year-old ranks this season, Beadman says Furnaces has stood out from the start.

It is no mean feat given Sheikh Mohammed starts the racing year with around 180 youngsters.

“From day one he was the top of the tree for us, he’s been up there with our best ones,” Beadman said.

“He’s an early comer. He’s by Exceed And Excel, the mare is by Strategic and he (Strategic) was just a real little natural, I won about five on him.”

Beadman said Furnaces had a good attitude and took his first raceday experience in his stride.

Winning jockey Tye Angland was taken with the colt’s performance and said he would improve from the experience.

“I had to do a bit of work to get there but it was moreso him being green. He got his head in front of the other horses and switched off more than anything,” Angland said.

“He was waiting for them around the turn and as soon as I squeezed him he knew what to do.”
