Britannia Stakes Prospect Seeking Gold to be Offered on Tattersalls Online

Tattersalls Online will offer the exciting Royal Ascot prospect SEEKING GOLD on Friday, 16th June. The three-year-old HAVANA GOLD colt trained by Tom Clover is being targeted at the Britannia Stakes, which is run over a mile on the Thursday of the Royal Meeting. 


The three-year-old has had only five starts to date and boasts top class form, finishing second beaten just three quarters of a length behind subsequent 2000 Guineas winner CHALDEAN on his debut as a two-year-old in July last year. SEEKING GOLD then broke his maiden by two lengths in a strong Yarmouth novice over seven furlongs on good to firm ground before an excellent performance when staying on strongly into fourth in the Listed Ascendant Stakes behind three time Listed winner NAVAL POWER, Group 1 Futurity Trophy Stakes fourth DANCING MAGIC and the Listed winner CAPTAIN WINTERS.


SEEKING GOLD made a promising seasonal debut in a competitive seven furlong handicap at Goodwood and currently boasts a Timeform rating of 90. The Britannia Stakes was won in 2022 by Juddmonte’s 90 rated THESIS, trained by Harry and Roger Charlton and subsequently sold to race in Hong Kong, and consistently attracts significant international interest.


By the Group 1 winning miler HAVANA GOLD, SEEKING GOLD is out of the DALAKHANI mare TEKHANIA, a half-sister to Hong Kong Group 2 winner DESTINED FOR GLORY from a strong international blacktype family. A 75,000 guineas purchase as a two-year-old from the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale, SEEKING GOLD presents an exciting opportunity to have a competitive runner at racing’s most prestigious international meeting and further information can be found on the Tattersalls Online website.


Bidding will take place from 10am - 12pm on Friday 16th of June on the Tattersalls Online website. Additional entries for the sale may be considered and can be discussed by contacting Tattersalls directly.
