Gold Mover retired to farm


Multiple graded-stakes winner and millionaire Gold Mover has been retired from racing and is at owner Edward Evans's Spring Hill Farm in Casanova, Va.

Trained by Mark Hennig, Gold Mover, a 5-year-old Gold Fever mare, earned more than $1.5 million in four seasons at the races, and her resume includes victories in six graded stakes. She won back-to-back runnings of the Grade 2 Princess Rooney Handicap, in 2002 and 2003, and captured the Grade 2 Schuylerville Handicap in 2000.

Gold Mover never won a Grade 1 race. She did finish first in the Humana Distaff at Churchill in 2002, but was disqualified and placed second. She finished second in the 2003 Humana Distaff and also was third in the 2003 Ballerina, her last start. She retires with a career record of 31-13-9-5 and $1,523,010 in earnings.

Evans bred Gold Mover from his Tentam mare Intentional Move. Gold Mover is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Dance Teacher, who has since produced two stakes-placed runners, and to English stakes winner Lunar Move.
