Listed victory for daughter of Golden Horn

Golden Pass lands the Aphrodite Stakes at Newmarket

Golden Horn’s daughter Golden Pass continued her progressive profile on Saturday, 17 July when victorious in the Listed Aphrodite Stakes at Newmarket. Sent straight to the front under jockey James Doyle, she had to battle gamely in the final furlong to repel the challenge of Free Wind by three quarters of a length. Lightly raced for a four-year-old, Golden Pass has now won four of her seven career starts.

Bred by Rabbah Bloodstock, Golden Pass is the second foal of Raven’s Pass’s Stakes-winning mare Lovely Pass, who landed the UAE 1,000 Guineas in 2013. Lovely Pass also has a filly foal by Night Of Thunder and is in foal to Champion Ghaiyyath this season.

Golden Pass is one of 49 winners from Golden Horn’s first crop, at a very impressive 64% winners to runners. He is enjoying a fruitful July that includes the impressive highly rated winners Golden Bugle, Safecracker and Alerta Roja.
