Golden Sword


Son of High Chaparral
Bay 2006, 16.2HH, To Stud 2012
Stud Fee: R15,000

He might’ve been second in Ireland’s biggest horse race, but on pedigree,
he was the runaway Winner.

THE RACEHORSE

  • Graded Stakes winner of four races from 1400m to 2400m, and more than R7million in prize money.
  • Runaway winner of the time-honoured Chester Vase (Gr 3).
  • Came within two lengths of the upset of the decade when running World Champion Sea The Stars to the line in the Investec English Derby (Gr 1). Runner-up in the Irish Derby (Gr 1) to triple Group One ace, Fame And Glory.
  • Second highest-rated Northern Hemisphere-bred son of High Chaparral.

THE BLOODLINE

  • His sire, High Chaparral, is the first stallion since his own sire, Sadler's Wells, to get six Group One winners from his first year at stud.
  • Sire in 2014 of Australian Triple Crown king, It's A Dundeel and World Champion Miler, Toronado.
  • Family of Alexandrova (3 x Gr 1s), Magical Romance (Gr 1), Doyoun (Gr 1), Chicquita (Irish Oaks Gr 1 in 2013), etc.

THE STALLION ON EVERYBODY'S LIPS

  • His father's lookalike. And his father's "get alike".
  • Better judges than ourselves have labelled his foals the toast of last season.
  • Like his paternal brother, So You Think, he throws sturdy, well grown, good limbed youngsters who'll get the punters talking at the sales.
  • Not surprising. "He stood out in any pre-race parade." Jehan Malherbe. Judge.
