The “Amazing” EATONS GOLD, 10 Years old, scores his 11th Career Win at Penang Turf Club 3rd February

The veteran Gelding, EATONS GOLD, proved that age is no barrier  by taking out the Class 4 1100 metre sprint at the Penang Turf Club in Malaysia Sunday 3rd February. Beautifully placed in the race by Apprentice S Rosmizan, just off the speed but on the rail, EATON  held his spot, was eased off the rail by his rider as they turned for home, gathered in the leader and held off the challengers to win by a long neck in 1.05.03 seconds

EATONS GOLD winning the Class 4 1100 metre at Penang 3rd Feb 2019

Eaton’s Gold, a ten year old by Jetspur out of Road Ranger, has had a wonderful career in Singapore and Malaysia – he won nine times in Singapore for Trainer Mark Walker and over S$510,000 in prizemoney before transferring to the care of Penang based trainer Sharee Hamilton early in 2017, where he has now won an additional MYR68,000 (approx NZ$23,000) as he winds down toward a well deserved retirement. He has had 87 career starts winning prize money in 63 of those starts

Syndicate Manager, John Galvin, was proud of his charge –  “this is another lovely result for EATONS GOLD  and his loyal band of Syndicate members, “ he said, ” amazingly we bought him nine years ago at the 2010 Karaka Sale, thinking he would be an ideal Karaka Million type and while he missed that particular opportunity and went to Singapore to race, he has had an incredible career in Singapore winning nine times there and now two further wins in Malaysia – and the way he ran yesterday, I don’t think he is finished yet”

Acquired by David Ellis on behalf of Fortuna at the 2010 Karaka Premier Sale for NZ$75,000, Eatons Gold  is raced by the Fortuna Eatons Gold Syndicate, an ownership group of 24 individuals.
