Golden Horn really intrigued me on Saturday. I am now paying full attention (I know, I know. I'm late). I felt this year's Coral-Eclipse was complimented by the quality of field, a genuine test for Gosdens Golden Horn. The Grey Gatsby & Western Hymn are very good horses & I rate them highly. Detorri broke out of the stalls a little slowly, but he gave Golden Horn a brilliant ride. Sent to the front Instantly & led the field. The Grey Gatsby & Jamie Spencer were the only pair that could mount challenge when it mattered.
Golden Horn really proved himself to kick on & win by over three lengths. I think there's more to come. I laugh less at single figure prices about him for the Ark, although owner, Oppenheimer said of the Ark "If it looked like being soft or heavy we wouldn't supplement him." The plan now for Golden Horn, according to Oppenheimer, If everything's good with him we'll go to the King George". "That's the most exciting thing to me. If he missed the King George then he would go to York for the Juddmonte". The Grey Gatsby has been reportedly targeted for the Juddmonte, in six weeks time.
