Gold Mag Streets Rivals

Thursday, 12th July 2018

The Lindsay Park stable expects exciting 3YO Gold Mag to develop into a spring carnival horse after he posted a highly impressive win at Sandown yesterday. The New Zealand-bred gelding extended his unbeaten record to 2 wins from 2 starts when unleashing a stunning turn of foot midway down the straight to score an explosive 5 length win in the Le Pine Funerals Handicap over 1200m. Stable representative Bruno Rouge-Serret said the son of Sebring had always demonstrated well above average ability. "Dave [David Hayes] has always had a very big opinion of the horse and he just said to Craig [Williams] 'ride him like the best horse in the race', and he did," Bruno-Serret told racing.com. "I haven't seen a horse put them away like that for a good while. He really put them to the sword. I think he is a serious horse." He added: "He will have a light let-up now and he will be a spring horse for sure." Jockey Craig Williams echoed Bruno-Serret's sentiments: "He was very exciting today. He still doesn't know what he's doing but he's got a serious motor and really good raw ability," he said. Gold Mag is out of the High Chaparral mare Chapinta (NZ), a half-sister to three-time Gr1 winner and Victoria Derby hero Sangster.
