Godolphin’s progressive four-year-old Trawlerman provided Frankie Dettori with a hard-fought win in the historic Ebor Handicap to cap an exciting week for our new stallion Golden Horn, who was also represented by Listed-winning three-year-old Haskoy at York last week.

Trained by John and Thady Gosden, Trawlerman, who was racing off a mark of 101, was notching his fourth win in only nine starts, having also landed the Coral Summer Handicap at Glorious Goodwood on his previous outing.

His connections are now pondering a trip to the Group 1 Melbourne Cup for the son of the Group 3-placed Monsun mare Tidespring.

On Friday at York the Juddmonte-bred Haskoy became the second daughter of Golden Horn to win the Listed Sir Henry Cecil Galtres Stakes and remains unbeaten after two starts for Ralph Beckett.

Demonstrating his versatility, Golden Horn was also represented by a winner over hurdles this week at Newton Abbot by the Shadwell-bred Al Zaraqaan. Trained by Archie Watson, the five-year-old has also won five times on the Flat.

Not to be outdone, Jack Hobbs was also among the winning sires on Saturday when the Ralph Beckett-trained The Gadget Man won the two-mile handicap at Chester for owner-breeders Derek and Judith Newell. Now three, he has also been placed twice, including as a two-year-old.
