Gold Arch is a stunning and very classy looking horse who should improve on anything he does at 2 in his 3-year-old season.
He is by Archipenko, a sire with great versatility having sired Group 1 winners over 5f, 8f, 10f and 12f. Archipenko was a super middle distance horse winning both the Summer Mile at Ascot (Group 2) and the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial over 10f (Group 2). His greatest feat on a racecourse was winning the Audemars Piguet QE II Cup (Group 1) at Sha Tin. He has proven a very popular stallion in Hong Kong with plenty of his progeny being sold to run out there.
Gold Arch is out of Montjeu mare called Goldrenched, who was a winner herself on the racecourse. Goldrenched has produced 3 winners from 4 runners to date. Gold Arch’s second dam is Sundrenched winner of the listed Montrose Stakes at Newmarket as a 2-year-old. Further down the pedigree, you begin to see just how much of stayers’ pedigree Godlier Arch has. The likes of HAAFD, MILITARY ATTACK, BIG ORANGE and RED CADEAUX feature in the fourth dam.
Gold Arch looks like another great value buy from David Lanigan and should improve the further in trip he goes. David has always spoken highly of this horse and we just can’t wait to see him on a racecourse.
