Goldstream to be Set for Cox Plate

Talented Italian three-year-old Goldstream has been purchased by the Australian Bloodstock Syndicate with a view towards gaining an invitation to compete in the 2015 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley in October.

Saddled by renowned Italian trainer Stefano Botti, Goldstream has more than stamped his claims to the international racing community in posting a perfect five wins from as many starts so far, highlighted by success in last month’s Group 2 Italian Derby (2200m) at Capannelle.

Revealing the three-year-old has been transferred to the care of 2014 Melbourne Cup-winning trainer Andreas Wohler in Germany, Australian Bloodstock’s Jamie Lovett told Racing Ahead the operation is thrilled to have purchased the three-year-old son of Martino Alonso and are confident he has the right making of a legitimate 2015 Cox Plate contender.

“The Italian form is a little bit left-field so we just need to put him in the eyes of the decision-makers and show that he’s a serious horse,” Lovett said.

“We think he’s an ideal Cox Plate horse. Obviously as a northern-hemisphere-bred three-year-old, similarly to Adelaide last year, he’ll be at a disadvantage at the weights but we think he’s the right horse.

“We’re very excited by him. He couldn’t have been more impressive in the Italian Derby and that form has now franked itself several times in both France and Germany.

“Andreas is keen to campaign the horse in France and we just want to find some nice races to lift his profile to gain an invitation into the Cox Plate.”

Should he warrant a 2015 Cox Plate invitation, Goldstream will join what looks likely to be a particularly large and talented international contingent at Moonee Valley on October 24th.

Three-year-olds have a terrific record in the Cox Plate in recent years, with the 2013 edition of the race taken out by Shamus Award and the most recent by the Northern Hemisphere-bred Adelaide.
