Gloaming racehorse AJC Derby winner

Gloaming - racehorse Australian championGloaming was foaled in 1915 and was by The Welkin out of the mare Light (by Eager)

He was an amazing horse that won 57 races from his 67 starts in Australian and New Zealand, at one stage winning 19 in a row. From his 10 non winning starts he ran second 9 times and amassed £43100 in prize money.

Trained by Dick Mason, his main wins included the Challenge Stakes, Craven Plate, Spring Stakes, Hill Stakes, AJC Derby, New Zealand Derby and Chelmsford Stakes.

The annual Group III Gloaming Stakes over 1,800m contested at Rosehill is named in his honour.

He won from 800 metres to 2400 metres, setting time records at any distance. At one point his winning streak reached nineteen in a row. From age 3 to 9 he started in 67 races, and won 57 of those. He was 2nd on nine other occasions and the only race in which he failed to run either first or second was in a race in which he fell after becoming tangled in the starting tape. Gloaming would ultimately win 38 classic races some of which were: AJC Derby, New Zealand Derby, Great Northern Derby, AJC Spring Stakes, AJC Craven Plate twice, Wellington Stakes and the Auckland Plate.

Gloaming's dam Light (1907) was very well bred carrying blood that would enable her progeny to excel over a wide variety of distances up to 2400m. Gloaming's sire The Welkin by the very well bred 1896 Orme stallion Flying Fox himself a winner of the 1899 Derby Stakes, 1899 Two Thousand Guineas Stakes, 1899 St. Leger Stakes, 1899 Eclipse Stakes had a very strong genetic affinity with Gloaming's dam, which attributed to Gloaming's ability.
