Goldstream Set For Australian Debut
High class European import Goldstream (Martino Alonso-Imco Imagination, by Darshaan) is expected to make his Australian debut for new trainer Kris Lees in tomorrow's Gr3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1350m) at Beaumont. The Italian-bred 4YO is one of 14 acceptors for the $125,000 sprint, which also features the likes of Famous Seamus, Sadler's Lake, Bull Point, Artistry and promising mare Nancy. A winner of 5 of his 7 starts to date, Goldstream was purchased by Newcastle-based Australian Bloodstock after winning the Italian Derby in May of last year. The son of Martino Alonso then ventured to the US where he finished 4th to Highland Reel in the Gr1 Secretariat Stakes, before another top effort saw him finish fifth to Prince Of Gibraltar in the Gr1 Grosser Preis von Baden in Germany in September.
