Slew o' Gold (April 19, 1980 – October 14, 2007) was an American thoroughbred racehorse who was voted the 1983 Eclipse Award for Outstanding Three-Year-Old Male Horse and the 1984 Eclipse Award for Outstanding Older Male Horse.

Background

Bred by Kentucky's renowned Claiborne Farm, he was owned and raced by Equusequity Stable, a partnership of Dr. Jim and Sally Hill and Mickey and Karen Taylor, who owned Oak Crest Farm in Marion County, Florida. Slew o' Gold was a half brother to the stakes winning Coastal.[1]

Racing career

As a 2-year-old, Slew o' Gold ran in only three races, winning two. In the 1983 American Triple Crown races, Slew o' Gold finished 4th in the Kentucky Derby, did not run in the Preakness Stakes, and finished second in the Belmont Stakes. In the fall of 1983, Slew o' Gold blossomed as a top race horse by defeating top older horses in the Woodward Stakes and the Jockey Club Gold Cup, while finishing a close second in the Marlboro Cup, narrowly missing a sweep of the 1983 Fall Championship Series at Belmont.

Racing as a 4-year-old in 1984, Slew o' Gold did not make his first start until July 2 due to problems with his hooves, but won four major races, including the Whitney Handicap at Saratoga and a sweep of the 1984 Fall Championship Series at Belmont Park that earned him a $1,000,000 bonus.[2][3] In his final start of 1984 and of his career, Slew o' Gold finished a close third to Wild Again in the inaugural running of the Breeders' Cup Classic, but was placed second after Gate Dancer was disqualified from second to third for interference.

Stud record

After the Breeders' Cup, Slew o' Gold was retired to stand at stud at Three Chimneys Farm near Midway, Kentucky. He sired the Grade I winners Awe Inspiring, Golden Opinion, Dramatic Gold, Gorgeous, Thirty Six Red and Tactile, along with stakes winner Nine Carat, who won the 1991 Prix Montenica, a Listed race at Deauville-La Touques Racecourse in France. After 17 years in stud service, in 2002 Slew o' Gold was pensioned.

Honors

In 1992, Slew o' Gold was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. In The Blood-Horse magazine ranking of the top 100 U.S. thoroughbred champions of the 20th Century, Slew o' Gold was ranked #58.

Death

Slew o' Gold was euthanized due to the infirmities of old age on October 14, 2007 at the age of 27. He is buried at Three Chimneys Farm.
