Robert Cowell calls time on career of sprint ace Goldream

Tue 10 Jul 2018

Dual Group One-winning sprinter Goldream has been retired.

Trained to his successes in the King’s Stand Stakes and Prix de l’Abbaye by Robert Cowell, the nine-year-old ran his final race when eighth of 14 at Newcastle last month.

Goldream's finest moment - his win in the 2015 King's Stand Stakes

Bought out of Luca Cumani’s yard at the end of the 2012 season, he was winless in his first campaign for Cowell before flourishing as a six-year-old.

“He won the Group Three Palace House on his seasonal debut (2015) before going on to land a superb Group One double of the King’s Stand and the Prix de l’Abbaye de Longchamp,” said Cowell on www.robertcowellracing.co.uk.

“Quite simply, that year when he got his favoured fast ground he was a star.

“After that it was only natural that he should try the Dubai Carnival, but alas it did not seem to suit him, and thereafter despite glimpses of the old Goldream, he could never recapture the high standard he had set.”

Goldream will join former stablemate Kingsgate Native at the British Racing School, having won nearly £600,000 in prize-money.
