A Golden Day Indeed As Well Bred Snitzel Mare Dominates
Having ran a good third on debut on a Heavy 9 on debut, trainer Andrew Noblet removed the track conditions from the equation and sent Golden Day to her home track of Ballarat on the synthetic over 1000m. With Neil Farley riding the 4YO daughter of Snitzel, Golden Day railed beautifully and managed to put a couple of lengths on her rivals coming off the bend. Eased down on the line to win by 1¾ lengths,
Being both a late foal and also a somewhat busy mare, she has been allowed plenty of time to mature which will hopefully stand to her over the coming seasons.
The half-sister to the farm bred international superstar Starspangledbanner, Golden Day’s value as a broodmare was always guaranteed; but with some good luck she might put a few more wins on the board before long.
The penultimate foal out of the ever-reliable producer Gold Anthem, Golden Day was sent to the Inglis Easter yearling sale but failed to make her reserve of $400,000.
The family continues to remain active with international relation’s including Okita Soushi picking up more black type at the Curragh on the weekend running third in a Group 3 over 1m 6F. Whilst his full brother Chief Little Rock looks to have some ability as well winning impressively on just his second outing at Leopardstown.
