Golden Horn Colt Wins The Cocked Hat

Golden HornOverbury Stud


Following in the steps of Lionel (GB) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) 12 months ago, Normandie Stud's homebred Gregory (GB) (Golden Horn {GB}) emulated that half-brother's success in Goodwood's Listed British EBF 40th Anniversary Cocked Hat S. on Friday. Heavily-supported into 4-7 favouritism having brushed aside decent yardsticks on debut over nearly 12 furlongs at Haydock in April, the John and Thady Gosden-trained bay raced behind the leading duo early. Notably unhappy on the unique terrain four out, he nevertheless kept responding to Rob Havlin's urgings to get on top passing two out and score ultimately comfortably by three lengths from the similarly once-raced Haggas runner Klondike (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) as class told.


Gregory is the third foal and second runner for the G2 Park Hill S.-winning dam Gretchen, whose yearling colt by Kingman (GB) will bear the name Kenneth (GB) and whose colt foal by Pinatubo (Ire) has yet to be handed his. The second dam Dolores (GB) (Danehill) was successful in the Listed Conqueror S. here, was second in the Sun Chariot when it was a group 2 and third in the G1 Coronation S. She was responsible for the G1 Irish St Leger dead-heater and outright G2 Yorkshire Cup and G2 Prix Foy winner Duncan (GB) (Dalakhani {Ire}), the G2 Doncaster Cup scorer Samuel (GB) (Sakhee) and the stakes producer Deirdre (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) who finished third behind no less than Snow Fairy (Ire) (Intikhab) in this card's Listed Height of Fashion S. in 2010.
