I am new to this site. I have not been into horse racing for very long, but I have to admit I have fallen head over heels in love with the sport. I got hooked by watching the '10 breeders cup, and loved watching this mare get her third breeders cup win. Since then I have watched many more races, and learned quite a bit , yet this amazing horse will always be one of my favorites. I do not bet, so I am not very familiar with how betting works, nor the terminology. Bare with me please c:

It's TRUE and it's a boy! Twitter a buzz: Int'l champ #Goldikova foaled a colt by #Galileo at @coolmorestud & will go back to that sire, reports @JourdeGalop1. Look forward to photos
I been search daily for news on Goldi....Finally this morning on twitter: Goldikova a mis bas ce matin à un premier produit Translation: Goldikova gave birth this morning to a first product :) I assume product is foal!!! Trying to confirm!

  • yukichan · Announcement comes from a french journalist I follow...sent message out to him and twitter world hoping to confirm... · 627 days ago
When she went back to France and retired after the 2011 Breeders Cup Mile, Goldikova was bred to the mighty Galileo not long afterwards. Just wondering if anyone's heard any news yet whether or not Goldikova ever delivered that foal by Galileo, and if not when she is due to deliver it?
  • Mary Z. · Turfy, I wish there were more easily accessible websites with news on Champion Goldikova, as there are on some U.S. mares. Possibly try the for fee section of racingpost or if you speak French, she does have a French fan club. Meanwhile, here's one article with a line about her due date, but sorry, due in February AND March is not very specific. http://www.drf.com/news/breeders-cup-mile-head-brings-another-filly-high-expectations She must be due in the new year though, or else her foal would be considered a year old on 1/1/13. · 671 days ago

One of my favorite mares of all time. While others may have fawned over Zenyatta, and RA - Goldikova Stole my heart. I hope her offspring come compete over here in the US. I would take a Goldi foal before a zenyatta foal any day.

  • shadowno · Good point re: breeding. Anabaa came darn close to being put down at as a juvenile and look at the serious impact he ultimately had upon the racing world. · 750 days ago
  • edgaropena · You can't play god and create super animals by theory alone. Anyone that understand breeding knows this. · 750 days ago
Has there been any word at all if Goldie is in foal?

  • yukichan · Galikova being 1/2 sister to Goldikova (Galileo out of Born Gold). I think she delivered another foal by Galileo a few months ago and was to be bred to Dansili this season. · 864 days ago
  • Horsefan90 · This one will be good. · 864 days ago
Clearly one of the best fillies ever - she beat top colts all the time.
Arrived at Coolmore Stud for her date with Galileo : )
Goldikovas legacy was already cemented before the 4 th BC. She is a legend of racing and nobody can disagree with that.
Even though Goldikova didn't win her 4th BC, that doesn't mean she isn't a great horse. Yeah it is VERY dissapointing, but look at what she's done over the years. 3 BC, a win in the Prix Rothschild pretty much every year she raced. She came to America as a three year old filly and won the Breeder's Cup Mile over talented horses. She's a true champion. If you call AK a champion, then why don't you look over here to see what a TRUE champion looks like.
  • travel_vic · I have polled a group of horsemen and the verdict has been unanimous: her number should have come down. The rules of racing mean nothing if they are not applied equally. · 1055 days ago
Champion
I think Freddie Head would rate her higher all time than Miesque. She deserves to move up the list.
Sad that she couldn't win, but look what she accomplished. Right now she's a SIX YEAR OLD mare. I mean, yeah, so is Court Vision, but Turallure is a 4 yr. old colt. And did those horses have to ship across the WORLD? She's run now in SIX G1 races this year. That's what I call a great horse.
I was really dissaponted that Goldikova didn't win her fourth mile. Why do all good horses lose their last race? Like Zenyatta, and now Goldikova. Well, at least she accomplished three miles. That's amazing just the same. Happy retirement Goldikova! You will always be the queen of the mile!
  • CraigBradshaw · that sort of thing happens in all sports. take a look at the great willie mays in his last year in baseball. some stars go out a winner, some go out on a 'losing' note, but they all make money. · 1084 days ago
Thanks for everything, sweetheart.... be good as a broodmare and have your legacy live on.... we'll miss you and we always love you.
Goodbye Goldikova, It's been an honour watching you race. A valiant 3rd in your 4th Breeders Cup Mile. You will be missed Goldikova <3. I am now changing her status to Retired.
  • RamonD · i know i will miss her to bye CHAMPION GOLDIKOVA she was the best miler!!!i love you!! · 1084 days ago
I thought she was gonna win, but she got 3rd:( No one wins their last race:(
Valiant effort by this timeless mare. But, in the end nowhere to run and just being an age old lad caught up with her. But even beyond this, she will forever be the greatest miler of her time. UNDOUBTEDLY.
