Goldencents Returns To Spendthrift Farm After Clinic Visit For Respiratory Issue

Veteran sire Goldencents is back at Spendthrift Farm after a stay at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute due to a respiratory issue, the social media account of the horse’s racetrack owner WC Racing announced Wednesday.

BloodHorse reported on Friday that Spendthrift sent a message to the stallion’s shareholders on June 17 had been admitted to the clinic. Initial reports from Spendthrift general manager Ned Toffey stated that the 11-year-old stallion responded quickly and positively to treatment.

Toffey’s message to shareholders on Wednesday, shared through WC Racing’s social media channel, said the Hagyard staff was unable to find a specific cause for the respiratory illness, but the stallion’s response to treatment left him in “very good condition” and he is expected to return to the breeding shed as normal in 2022.

Goldencents, a two-time Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner, is a son of Spendthrift Farm’s cornerstone stallion Into Mischief, and arguably his first true national-level star. He joined his sire on the Spendthrift roster in 2015, and he has four crops of racing age with combined earnings of more than $17.1 million.

His best runner to date is By My Standards, a four-time winner at the Grade 2 level, who most recently finished second in the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park on June 5.

Other runners of note by Goldencents include Grade 2 winner Phantom Currency, and Grade 3 winners Mr. Money, Wildman Jack, and Going to Vegas.
