Thursday Throwback Race - 01/10/20

Golden Horn

Today's throwback race of the day looks at the 2015 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe where John Gosden pulled off another masterclass with Golden Horn under a special ride from the main man Frankie Dettori.

The Anthony Oppenheimer owned colt raced nine times during his career, winning seven of them and finishing second in another two, just highlighting how special his career was.

Whilst landing the Arc, the son of Cape Cross also landed the Irish Champion Stakes, Coral Eclipse and the Epsom Derby, only suffering his defeats in the Juddmonte International and at Keeneland in the Breeders Cup Turf.

Golden Horn was a once in a lifetime horse for the owners, who have had similarly nice runners but never to the standard of this colt.
