Tribute to Gold
This 2005 mare is highly intelligent and intuitive. She’s a wise and nurturing soul. Although previously a winning hunter under the name Touch of Gold, she seems to relish her role as broodmare.
Her Elite Hanoverian sire, All the Gold, was a champion hunter, the sire of champion hunters and a top stallion on the leading hunter sire rankings for the USEF. He also sired Hunter Futurity and Jumper Futurity winners. The bonus is that his daughters are also producing champions the likes of Play Mister For Me.
All The Gold descends from the Gotthard sire line in combination with Wedekind and some of the breed-forming Thoroughbred ancestors from the 30s and 40s (Nearco, Big Game, etc.).
Goldie’s dam’s sire, Lorbason, is best known as a sire of dams, being the broodmare sire of the Young Jumper competitor, Clementine, as well as winners in hand and in age-specific classes such as Zoey. Lorbason was by the dressage mount Lorbas and from the sire line of Lugano II (ancestor to dressage superstar, Salinero) through Lowen As (ancestor to Olympic dressage horse, Painted Black). Lorbrason is half Thoroughbred and traces to the sport influence, Nijinsky II (ancestor to the Olympic eventer Clifton Promise among numerous others). Goldie’s second dam, a Thoroughbred, is related to Twizzle, a Westphalen eventer at the 2012 Olympics.
Goldie`s 2016 filly by Cunningham was sold before weaning, and the mare has been bred back to that stallion. Why argue with success?
