Havana Gold ex. Trick or Treat (Lomitas)
This colt was sent to us by his successful breeder Peter Onslow and is an exciting prospect. His dam Trick or Treat was a winner of seven races including a Listed and Group 3 race over a mile and half. She has bred four winners from four runners including the smart Listed winner Medrano.
Havana Gold is an exciting first season sire who won five races, four of them as two year old including the Group 3 Sommerville Tattersalls Stakes. A high class three year old he ran very well in both the French and Irish Guineas before taking the Group One Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly. Havana Gold is by a sire we have had plenty of success with in Teofilo. Trimoulet who won four races for the yard in one season. Affileo won her first two starts before being sold to Team Valor before being sold to Team Valor, she followed up with another win and fifth place in the Lingfield Oaks before continuing her career in the USA.
Jessica’s Dream the dam of Havana Gold was raced by Peter Onlsow, who also had a share in Affileo so it seems like all paths led to Havana Gold being an obvious mate for Trick or Treat.
He put in a promising effort on debut when a slow start was put paid to any chance of winning over a seven furlongs but he was doing some lovely work towards the end of the race to finish fourth. Stepped up to a mile he broke better and finished second next time at Southwell despite not enjoying the surface. He will get better over further again.
