Golden Archer Wins Gold Sovereign Stakes

Friday, 11th February 2011

European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a juvenile black-type success when favoured colt Golden Archer (Rock Of Gibraltar-Viennetta, by Pins) gained the judge's decision in a 3-way photo-finish to yesterday's $150,000 Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes (1200m) for 2YOs at Launceston. Golden Archer (ridden by Luke Nolen for trainer Peter Moody) scored by a long-neck from the filly Triple Asset (Nadeem-Caralowe, by Hennessy) with a further long-neck to the gelding More Awesome (More Than Ready-Breezer, by Royal Academy). Golden Archer (an $80,000 yearling consigned by Sefton Park Stud at the 2010 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 3 wins & 1 placing (in last month's Listed Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Preview over 1000m at Caulfield) from 4 starts for $184,400 earnings.
