Race entries

Gold Arch 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.

He 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 has been with David Lanigan since he was a 2-year-old, making only 3 starts in his debut season over inadequate trips. This year has seen him to much better effect showing signs of being a better horse than his mark suggests. He is now a 3-time winner racing off a mark of 70 with more improvement to come in his 4-year-old season. David felt something was bothering the horse after his run at Ripon and underperformed next time out at Kempton. David and the vets were able to identify the issue and sort it before his latest run at Wolverhampton, his best performance to date! David is very good at bringing these middle-distance type horses on very slowly, they do their learning on the track.

Gold Arch has a very similar profile to our very own LEXINGTON EMPIRE, also in training with David. Lexington Empire ended his 3-year-old campaign rated 72 and is now rated 92! Gold Arch is on a similar upward trajectory, we can see there being plenty of fun days out with him next year. 

Gold Arch is the type of horses you look to buy at the Horse In Training sales, without any background information of how they are performing at home. Here is an excellent opportunity to get involved in an exciting horse for this year and the next. If he can improve by 10lbs, he will be very attractive to the jumps purchasers.”


Here's probably the most sensible and easily affordable route into racehorse ownership. We can offer a free lease into this colt, as well as full ownership options! A fantastically affordable and almost instant foray into the ownership ranks, a free lease option means that there is nothing to pay up front to join the syndicate, just our usual, regular monthly lease payment as with any other shareholding with us. 

The perfect opportunity for a first-time owner, looking to dip their toe into racehorse ownership; inexpensive to be part of, whilst still high on expectations. You just pay a monthly training fee instead of buying a full share and paying an amount upfront. Lease owners receive all our usual MPR ownership benefits (see below), with the exception of, as you would expect, a percentage of future resale value of the horse or race winning trophies; given that your syndicate association is a lease hold share. However, given there's no initial outlay of funds to join the syndicate, that's a perfectly fair quid pro quo, we'd suggest.  

Here's what lessees of a horse benefit from:

  • full race day complimentary owners’ badge entitlements (the quantity dependant on the % shareholding e.g. one badge with 2.5% and two badges with 5%)
  • receipt of all prize money earned (commensurate with percentage shareholding)
  • full owners’ updates from the syndicate manager
  • full access to our newsletters and offers 
  • full entitlements to stable visits and events.
