Purchased by David Ellis at the Magic Millions’ Gold Coast Sale for A$110,000, this daughter of Savabeel struck early in her racing career.

Trained by Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards, having won at Te Rapa in December, she was a brave third in the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes at Ellerslie on New Year’s Day 2017.

She then won the “Race a Horse with Te Akau – Karaka Million Winning Stable” again at Te Rapa before claiming the prestigious $100,000 Group 2 Matamata Breeders’ Stakes in February 2017 at just her fifth start.

This victory emulated the success of her half sister the year before – who incidentally had downed Te Akau’s Sassy’N’Smart by a whisker.

Gold fever then finished a gallant third in the Group 1 Sistema Stakes 1200m, won the previous season by Te Akau’s Heroic Valour. ┬áIt was a bitter sweet group 1 performance e as she was severely interfered with early in the running causing her to lose many lengths (stewards’ report).

Gold Fever has now won three of her six starts and finished third at her other two appearances.
