Goldikova: set for a half-sibling by Galileo this year and Dansili in 2012PICTURE: EDWARD WHITAKER
Goldikova's dam Born Gold to visit Dansili
BORN GOLD, the Wertheimer brothers' dam of champion racemare Goldikova is booked for a visit to Dansili, sire of Harbinger and Arc winner Rail Link. Goldikova is the ninth foal out of Born Gold, and the daughter of Anabaa has been victorious 15 times from 21 starts, with an astonishing 12 Group or Grade 1 wins to her name.
A first full-sibling to Goldikova was born last year, while Born Gold's first Galileo foal, a filly named Galikova, was an impressive winner on her debut last season before she was fifth in the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac. Born Gold is again due to Galileo in April.
Dansili has far surpassed his achievements on the track with his stud record, which also includes Group 1 winners Zambezi Sun, Zoffany and Passage Of Time, while he has two US Grade 1 winners to his name in Proviso and Price Tag.
