GOLDIKOVA has arrived at Churchill Downs. Scroll down for new photos of her on the grounds! - Anne
Goldikova will soon be arriving at Churchill Downs to defend her crown in the TVG Mile Division. She will be shooting for her fourth Mile victory, which would set the bar to an almost unreachable level. Bred and owned by Gerard and Alain Wertheimer and trained by Freddy Head, Goldikova has won 17 of 26 starts and $6,978,551, finishing worse than third once. I know everyone headed to Churchill Downs next weekend is looking forward to seeing the superstar run and according to Head, she is doing better than ever. Read more in this article from Steve Haskin. Since we are talking about her I figured I would share some more Goldikova related photos that "Through the Lens" guest photographer and blogger John Gilmore sent in. Hope you enjoy! Come back next week to see more photos of the superstar at Churchill Downs as she prepares to defend her title.

John Gilmore's photographs are exciting, thanks for sharing them !
I learned a lot from looking at the photos and I say what I always say when-ever I see GOLDIKOVA.
''WHAT A BEAUTY SHE IS & HOW GRAND !''
Same as when I see Freddy Head , I think :
''Now there's a TRAINER !!!''
A wonderful way to start the day as we all go forward. Thank-you !
Thanks for sharing the pictures on Goldikova. I always love seeing pictures of these grand animals. I hope that she does take her fourth Breeders Cup Mile, and I will definitely be rooting her at the Breeders Cup. Go Goldikova!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for the wonderful pictures of the Queen of the World! Whether she gets BC#4 or not, there are no worlds left for her to conquer - and no one to equal her. Go Goldi! And come home safe!
