General/Questions / February Stallion Spotlight I: Golden Text

Stallion Spotlight: February  I

 NCh. Golden Text
2007 chestnut Thoroughbred stallion, 15.0hh
A.P. Indy x Gold Rush – Mr. Prospector
[view]

This is going to be especially fun and chalk-full of information, as this is the first member-owned, game-bred, and proven stallion we’ve highlighted so far!

CAREER
Bred by Edgewood Stud, Golden Text exchanged hands a number of times before being purchased February 2021 by current owner Generous Bloodstock. He made 65 starts, 51 in stakes, and won 8 races including the G1 Beach Shore Stakes, G1 Nunthorpe Stakes, G2 Silver Slipper Stakes, G2 Winterbottom Stakes, G3 Norfolk Stakes, G3 Aristides Stakes, and the G3 Star Kingdom stakes. He set one speed record at 5.5f turf, and all his career wins were going under a mile. Despite the one speed record, Golden Text’s majority earnings were on the dirt ($862,800).

His best years on the track were at 2 and 5. During his career he beat stallions Devil His Due, All Jazzed Up, Black Light II, Robin Hood, and Player.

INJURY HISTORY
In five years of racing he suffered a single cut at three.

LINEAGE
His sire, A.P. INDY, had 323 foals, 70 stakes winners and 37 MSW’s with a staggering 20 millionaires. These millionaires include GCH. AP. Valentino, GCh. A.P. Fantasy, GCh. Indy 500, NCh. Barchetta, GCh. Highland Surprise, NCh. Spinning Hill, GCh. A.P. Executive, GCh. Indy’s Drifter, GCh. Mocktail, GCh. Majestic, NCh. Aptitude, GCh. Accelorator, Ch. Navy Seal, Ch. Black Type, and many more. He has 4 gold-ranked daughters, 11 silver, and 16 bronze. He is the sire of game-bred stallions NCh. Aptitude, NCh. Golden Text (sire of stallion ICh. Calle de Oro), and the damsire of stallion WCh. Sponsored.

His dam GOLD RUSH produced 13 foals, 10 winners, and 4 stakes winners. In additional to her sole MSW, Golden Text, she produced SW’s Ch. She Whispers, Ch. Rush Home, Ch. American Rocket, and SP Ch. Westward Ho. Through her daughters she is the granddam of MSW’s ICh. Saucy Magician, GCh. Kinda Flighty, GCh. Cheeky Monkey, Ch. Mae West, Ch. Cheeky Magic, Ch. Golden Oak, and Ch. Scattered Mercury. She is by Mr. Prospector, a silver-ranked broodmare sire.

The combination of A.P. Indy/Mr. Prospector has also produced GCh. Yemen, Ch. A.P. Gold, and Ch. A.P. Prospect. Flipped, the Mr. Prospector/A.P. Indy cross has produced Ch. Digging for Love.

SIRE RECORD
At the time of this post, he is Silver-ranked (6.3). Golden Text has sired 8 crops with 39% starters, 61% winners, 18% stakes winners and 10% multiple stakes winners. He produced a stallion in his first crop with ICh. Calle de Oro.

Out of 59 current stallions w/ started offspring:
  • 28th in highest winning percentage of offspring
  • 4th in offspring earnings
  • 7th in highest G1-placed offspring
  • 5th in G1-winning offspring

Leading Earners
  • ICH. CALLE DE ORO ($6,698,800), G1 Belmont Stakes, G1 Preakness Stakes, G1 Futurity Stakes, G1 Fountain of Youth Stakes, G1 Travers Stakes, G1 Santa Anita Handicap.
  • NCH. DAMN U AUTOCORRECT ($2,284,800), G1 Cigar Breeders’ Stakes, G2 Bold Ruler Breeders’ Stakes, A.D. Hollindale Stakes, G2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup, 2nd G1 Epsom Derby, G1 St. Leger Stakes.
  • GCH. OLYMPIC FLAME ($2,064,200). G1 Eternal Hope Breeders’ Stakes, G2 Reisling Slipper Trial, G2 Empire Rose Stakes, 2nd G1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, 3rd Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Fillies.
  • GCH. GOLDEN TUNES ($1,601,850), G1 Mother Goose Stakes, G2 Jim Dandy Stakes, First Flight Stakes, 2nd G1 Alabama Stakes, 3rd Black-Eyed Susan Stakes.
  • GCH. GOLDEN IDOL ($1,275,000), G1 Highland Bandit Breeders’ Stakes, G1 Hopeful Stakes, G1 Spring Champion Stakes.

Foals for Thought
Looking at 10 random multi-winners, including the above five MSW’s, 4 had their best career year at age 2 (40%), 5 at age 3 (50%), and 1 at age 4 or older (10%). His foals seem to run on both dirt and turf with an affinity for sprints and classic distances.

Currently he has produced MSW’s out of mares by Fleet Street, Satin Romance, Highland Wizard, Omaha (twice), Planet Hollywood, What’s Debatable, Crimson Lad, Dixieland Jazz, and creates. His dam’s half-sister, Kinda Sassy, is platinum-ranked with 3 MSW’s from 6 runners—MSW’s by Magic Glory (see sons Hogwarts, Glorious Victory, Ancient Magic), Major’s Flight (see son AndLikeThatHesGone), and Black Warrior (see son Holy Warrior).

Golden Text currently stands in England at Generous Bloodstock for $7,500

He is not BC nominated and he not does require approval to breed to.

Horses For Sale / February Auction
« on: January 26, 2018, 03:49:36 pm »
After some serious thinking, and with my herd growing exponentially in a direction I am really liking, I've decided to have a bit of a cathartic cleaning. It's not until the end of February so I have time to twist my arm into consigning more.

Criteria for sale:

- Less chasers. I don't mind having them, but I'm finding they're constantly on top of each other for races.
- Fewer 2yo's. I am at the stage where I have 70+ foals born each year. Attempting to cut down on 2yo's and yearlings.
- Cut down on broodmares. This will be gradual as some mares are carrying foals I would like before selling the mare. More broodmares will be sold next year. (Ultimate goal is <70 mares). Less mares, fewer stud fees to pay and fewer horses to manage + more emphasis on the foals that are born and kept.
- Cut down on mares of similar lines.
- Emphasis on campaigning the homebreds.

General/Questions / 2021 Retired Stallions
« on: January 03, 2018, 10:36:07 pm »
2021 was an amazingly rough year for stallions, especially in the final few months. I just wanted to take a quick look at the stallions we lost (via retirement); some people may not even have realized it! RL stallions excluded, as they were purposefully retired for new RL stallions to take their place.

GCh. Steal Your Heart (WCh. Secret of Love x Second Chance - Create)
Bronze. His final crop consists of just 3 foals due this year. He has sired 22 winners including 3 SW's and 1 millionaire in GCh. Stealing Hollywood. His two other SW's are Ch. Gimme Love and Love Vigilante. Half to stallions WCh. As You Wish (sire) and FFCh. High Chances (dam); half to the dam of WCh. I'm Your Angel. He does not yet have an heir.

WCh. Gotta Go (GCh. Go For Dash x Times Ebony - Create)
Gold; Chef-de-Race (C/S). His final crop, due this year, is expected to be a full book of 30. He has sired 83 winners including 21 stakes winners, 11 MSW's and 7 millionaires.

Foaling Barn / Black Storm West 2022 Foals
« on: January 02, 2018, 04:15:36 am »
Finally our first foals of the year arrive, and of course neither were due for a few more days.

Frostmourne, 9.3hh dark gray colt
Frosted x Deadly Beauty - NCh. Devil May Care (S)
Nice big dark gray colt with not a speck of white on him; I'm quite excited for Frosted as a sire in FF. Second foal for his dam, who was bred on a lease.
*Shanthi - Let me know if his name needs changing. There's already a Frostbite in the game.

Sunstep, 9.2hh brown filly
ICh. Calle de Oro x Betterthansunshine - Created
This girl arrived a few days early. She's half to SP Ch. Better Be Gone. Her dam was bred on a lease and has returned to Blackhawk Ridge.
*Added: Just discovered Betterthansunshine died shortly after giving birth. This has been a very rough year for everyone.

1 Colt | 1 Filly | 0 Stillborn -- 84 due
