Golden Lad

All that glitters is Golden Lad!

He shot to the top of the Mid-Atlantic’s leading freshman sires list in 2019 with stakes winners Hello Beautiful and LADDIE LIAM and stakes-placed She’smysunshine, and the winners kept piling up!

When his first crop arrived, they were so good looking the son of MEDAGLIA D’ORO covered nearly 100 mares his second year.

At the sales, his 2019 2-year-olds turned heads – five of the 11 sold brought six-figures, topped by record-breaking LADDIE LIAM at Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December for $450,000 and MINE NOT MINE for $210,000!

Golden Lad finished first or second in 10 of 15 starts, his eight wins coming at five different tracks, and earned $645,320. He won the Gr. 3 Razorback in his stakes debut by daylight; set a 1-1⁄16-mile track record of 1:41.17 at Gulf­stream Park; and, racing exclusively in stakes company in his final season, won three times, including the Gr. 3 Prairie Meadows Cornhusker.

He is a half-brother to Broad­way’s Alibi (a $2.15 million broodmare) and R Gypsy Gold, out of a stakes-winning half-sister to top sire Dialed In.
