Gold Standard

BY TRIPPI (USA) out of OLYMPIC DAM

R 15,000

About

Gold Standard was ranked by FORM MERIT RATINGS as the second best colt of his generation.

He is an exceptional racehorse and grand looking son of champion sire, Trippi. His dam, Olympic Dam, was out of the big, powerful filly Olympic Duel. Typical of both her sire Dancing Champ (USA) and her damsire New South Wales (GB) and bred by Luke Bailes and Shaun McCarthy out of their now famous mare, Mashka, Olympic Duel raced from two to five and had one start in August at six. She was trained by the legendary Terrance Millard and ridden to all of her 13 wins by Felix Coetzee.

Masterfully handled by great horsemen, Olympic Duel recovered her composure after a horrific trailer accident and did enough to win the Champion Three-Year-Old Filly title. She won both the Cape Fillies Guineas and the Bloodline Fillies Championship before facing down the champion four-year-old filly Wainui in the Paddock Stakes. Wainui was coming off a hot streak of triumphs in the Diadem (4,7 lengths), Majorca (3,10 lengths) and Queen’s Plate (1,50 lengths). Olympic Duel beat her by 2 lengths (4lb).

As a four-year-old Olympic Duel’s Gr1 victories included the Majorca, J&B Met,

Paddock Stakes and Mainstay International (now Champions Cup). In the Met she gave weight and a solid beating to such fine colts as Spanish Galliard (July), Bluffing (Champion) and Flaming Rock (Champion). In the Mainstay she gave a 9lb beating to Met winner Divine Master. Next time out she opened her five-year-old account with a win in the Gr1 Champion’s Stakes (2000m).
