Diamond Racing are delighted to present a wonderful opportunity to get involved with the talented and well-related mare, Golden Emblem, trained by Neil Mulholland.
This six-year-old is the daughter of the great Presenting – sire of Denman, War Of Attrition, On His Own & Yorkhill.
Golden Emblem made her debut in a Chepstow bumper back in March. Held up in the midfield early on, she could be spotted making good headway around a quarter of a mile from home, moving stylishly into second place, before just tiring late on to finish third.
It was a terrific racecourse debut and hinted at a very promising career ahead.
A pleasing introduction to racing is complemented by a tremendous NH pedigree. Golden Emblem is out of the Flemensfirth mare Merry Excuse, who has previously produced the very exciting Dickie Diver. A £210,000 graduate of the Goffs UK January Mixed Sale in 2018, he won a Chepstow maiden hurdle in February prior to finishing an excellent fourth in the Grade-1 Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival for owner J P McManus and trainer Nicky Henderson.
Merry Excuse is clearly an exciting producer, and there is enough substance to the page to indicate that her early exploits will be no flash in the pan. She is closely related to the top-class Grade-1 winning Irish chaser Merry Gale, the triple-Grade-2 winning chaser and King George third Racing Demon and the Leinster Naitonal victor Abolitionist. Add into the mix that Flemensfirth is the damsire of the likes of Identity Thief, Roksana, Us And Them and Ok Corral, and it is evident that Golden Emblem possesses impeccable credentials.
Having made such an encouraging start to her career, Golden Emblem has been given the time she needs to develop into her frame. She is now back in full training and Neil Mulholland comments:
‘The filly has strengthened up unreal over the past few months.’
With much improvement to come from this impressive physical specimen, who combines proven racecourse promise with an excellent pedigree, can you afford to miss out on this tremendous prospect!?
Golden Emblem is pencilled in for a mares bumper at Aintree on 27th October.
