    Default Information about the stallion Formal Gold.

    My OTTB mare Nip of Gold is by Formal Gold. I've tried searching the internet but I haven't found a lot of information on him online.

    Here's my mare's pedigree: http://www.pedigreequery.com/nip+of+gol <3

    And here's Formal Gold's page I found: http://www.esquirolfarms.ca/formal_gold.html

    I'm very much interested in anything I can find out about my mare's bloodlines, who bred her, her racing career, her sire's career, and really anything else.

    Any information you guys can dig up or any suggestions would be wonderful. <3

    Her breeder is John Murphy.

    She had 3 wins in 39 starts for earnings of $45,150. All of her racing was done in northern and southern California.

    Formal Gold was a top racehorse, a G1 winner and earner of 1.4M. Here's a link to a page with a lot of info about him, including his picture: http://www.ranchosanmiguel.net/formal-gold.shtml

    Ooh, a Black Tie Affair. I do like him.

    Your mare wasn't a world beater, but she was 39: 3-3-11 and a late bloomer who earned a bit of money (not a lot of WINS, but that's 17 times in the money which isn't too shabby.) Never got out of claiming company but she did a decent job.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, she wasn't a stakes horse by any means but I'm impressed that she was able to race so long.

    I do like her pedigree as well, she has a lot of Buckpasser as well as Damascus, Cox's Ridge, The Axe, and of course Tom Fool and Turn. I also like Black Tie Affair
