First Stakes Winner for Goldencents

Tuesday, 17th July 2018

Spendthrift Farm's Goldencents sired his first stakes winner on Saturday when 2YO US-bred colt Pickett romped to a brilliant 9 length win in the US$75,000 D.S. Shine Young Futurity (5.5 furlongs) at Evangeline Downs. The victory saw Goldencents hold onto his spot as the leading First-Crop Sire in the US this year. Goldencents (Into Mischief-Golden Works, by Banker's Gold) retired to Spendthrift in 2014 as the winner of 7 of his 18 starts and over US$3 million in prize money. The outstanding sprinter won three Group 1 races, namely successive Breeders' Cup Dirt Miles (2013 & 2014) and the Santa Anita Derby.
