2015 bay filly by Acclamation ex Golden Shadow (Ire) (Selkirk (USA))
Golden Salute has made a hugely exciting start to her Racing career, winning two of her four starts to date including a fine 2nd in a hot fillies Nursery on her final start of the season at Goodwood. Andrew Balding is keen to put her away until next season now where she could make into an exciting prospect for some major sprint handicaps off a not unreasonable handicap rating of 82.
Golden Salute is a daughter of the highly successful sire Acclamation is a half-sister to the Listed-placed 2yo Lordoftheshadows and a full-sister to the exciting 3yo of this year Victory Angel who won his maiden as a 2yo impressively. She realised €88,000 as a foal and is bred on the same Acclamation/Selkirk cross as both Absolutely So and Make Music whom Andrew Balding also trained.

Andrew trains at the historic Park House Stables in Kingsclere where syndicate members are always made to feel so welcome, not least by his lovely wife Anna-Lisa. Anna-Lisa’s chocolate brownies and cocktail sausages are worth the visit on their own!
