One to Watch – Gosford
Tara Madgwick - Tuesday, 11 July 2017
Written Tycoon has emerged as an outstanding source of brilliant sprinters and this two year-old filly that thrashed older rivals at Gosford on Tuesday has caught our eye as a filly going places.

Goldfinch as a yearlingTrained by Steve Englebrecht, Goldfinch did everything wrong on debut when finishing third back in November at Warwick Farm, but since then has come back a much stronger filly.

She led all the way to break her maiden at Kembla last month and then stepped up sharply in grade to take on a Class Two race at Gosford against older horses over 1000 metres.

Goldfinch led all the way for Deanne Panya and gave her rivals a cold when dashing away to win by four lengths.

It was an impressive display and at this time of year there is often a three year-old that comes from nowhere and hits the early season stakes races fit and ready to run… Goldfinch might be that horse.

A $50,000 Inglis Classic purchase for her trainer from the Murulla Stud draft, Goldfinch is one of three winners from Blevola Miss, a daughter of stakes-placed Nervola Belle from the family of WA Group II winners Rohan and Ever Ready.
