Goldikova Seeks Fourth Prix Rothschild

Goldikova top story.

France: Goldikova could face the Falmouth Stakes 1-2-3 as she bids to complete a four-timer in the Prix Rothschild at Deauville on Sunday.


The Henry Cecil-trained Timepiece, dual Sun Chariot Stakes winner Sahpresa and David Simcock's First City all feature among 13 horses engaged in the former Prix d'Astarte after Wednesday's forfeit stage.


Also engaged is Godolphin's Antara who beat First City in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom, while the Ballydoyle pair Misty For Me and Wild Wind -  both also in the Nassau Stakes - have also stood their ground.


Before setting off to saddle Rajsaman in the Sussex Stakes, trainer Freddy Head issued an upbeat bulletin about Goldikova's progress.

Timepiece, Sahpresa, and First City all ran a great race at Newmarket in the G1 Falmouth Stakes this year. But Deauville is home field advantage for Goldikova. It's like her backyard. Her personal playground. Goldikova has run in 5 G1 races at Deauville in during her career, and won 4 of the 5. Her only loss ever at the track was in last season's G1 Prix Jacques-Lemoire. When she was beaten by English 2000 Guineas winner, Makfi, on ground far too soft for Goldikova's liking. But in 3 prior G1 Prix Rothschild attempts, she's never struggled to beat other fillies and mares at Deauville.
