The only son of leading sire MEDAGLIA D’ORO standing in the Mid-Atlantic region, GOLDEN LAD was the only stallion in the region to cover more than 100 mares in 2016!
The striking bay is a standout – he finished first or second in 10 of 15 starts, with eight wins coming at five different tracks while he amassed $645,320. He rolled through a four-race win streak, capped off by a daylight victory in the Gr. 3 Razorback H. at Oaklawn in his stakes debut, and set a 11⁄16-mile track record of 1:41.17 at Gulfstream Park. Racing exclusively in stakes company in his final season, he won the Essex H., Mountainview H. (by five lengths), and the Gr. 3 Prairie Meadows Cornhusker, the latter as favorite over Tapiture and Page McKenney.
His dam, juvenile stakes winner Broadway Gold, is a half-sister to the nation’s 2016 leading freshman sire Dialed In and has also produced $521,500-earner and multiple graded winner Broadway’s Alibi (sold as a broodmare for $2.15 million) and multiple stakes winner and Gr. 1-placed R Gypsy Gold. His third dam is champion 2-year-old filly and Breeders’ Cup winner Eliza.
