Starspangledbanner Head Shot 10

Second Straight Success For Starspangledbanner Colt

Golden Dragon (2c Starspangledbanner - Emerald Cutter, by Henrythenavigator) recorded back-to-back wins when taking the six furlong Novice Stakes at Windsor on Saturday evening.

Successful in a five furlong maiden at the track last month, he faced eight rivals on Saturday, with Pat Cosgrave riding the Stuart Williams-trained colt to track the leading pair. Shaken up two furlongs out, he led a furlong later and was pushed out to hold off a strong challenge by King’s Lynn.

Golden Dragon is owned by Happy Valley Racing and Breeding, who bought the colt from breeder Morna McDowall for 70,000gns at the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze-Up Sale.
