Golden Duke was born on April 10th 2019 at Tally-Ho Stud, Ireland. We first saw Golden Duke in the spring of 2021 at the Breeze up sales in Newmarket. After impressing on his breeze we were lucky enough to bring him home after. We sent him to Nigel Tinkler, based at Langton near Malton in North Yorkshire where he would begin his racing career. It took Golden Duke a few runs to learn his game but on his 5th start he broke his maiden tag winning a nursery handicap in emphatic style at Kempton on the August of 2021. We always knew he was going to be a horse who would get better with age due to his immaturity and coltish behaviour. In 2022 he got a second win to his name when he flew home late to beat the late Queen Elizabeth II owned Distant Light in a photo finish at Leicester in June. He had a very good 2022 being in the top 3 on 6 occasions. In January of 2023, Golden Duke had an accident in the paddock cutting his back right leg, this meant he had to have a significant amount of box rest which meant for a belated start to his season. As always it takes Golden Duke a couple of runs after a break to get back to his A-Game, on June 30th we went to Doncaster and he won coming from last to first at the odds of 33/1 giving his owners a great day at the races. Golden Duke is a very consistent horse with a lovable personality, when he’s on his breaks he is the most caring friendly horse you will ever meet. Going forward into 2024 I believe he can improve again giving his owners some great days out at the races.
