Clive Cox is a proven top-level trainer and renowned for his expertise with sprinters especially. Other superstars he has trained down the years include Lethal Force himself, Harry Angel, Heartache, Gilt Edge Girl, Profitable, My Dream Boat, New Seeker and Reckless Abandon.
Before training he was a jump jockey, riding 100 winners, having grown up on a farm in Somerset where his father taught him the basics of horse conformation.
Clive Cox said, “I’m delighted to be training for the Racegoers Club again. I trained both Lethal Force and Malilla of course and they both provided me with some special moments especially when they both won on the same card at Newbury in 2012. We had a lot of fun last year with Golden Force and he's proved to be good horse. He has matured a lot since the beginning of last season and so we gelded him over the winter. He's now back in training with the view to run him in Spring. I'm hoping we can repeat the success with had with him last season."
This Group will run until the end of September 2019 and you have the opportunity own a share in Golden Force for only £295.
Sire - Lethal Force
Standing at Cheveley Park Stud, Lethal Force made a solid start to his stallion career as his first runners hit the track in 2017. He has produced 24 winners from 57 runners and 21 winners from 55 two-year-old runners last year. In his racing career with Clive he was fourth in the Coventry at Royal Ascot, and a seven furlong Group Two winner at three before excelling at four when winning two six furlong Group Ones.
Dam - Malilla
A winner of a six furlong maiden at Newbury in August 2012, Malilla had the future Oaks winner Talent behind her that day. She might not have gone on to achieve quite as much in her career but she did have a peak rating of 92 and ran twice at Listed level. This is her second foal and her first colt.
Every trainer strives to make his mark, training ever more and better winners for owners. It takes teamwork, dedication and support - Clive Cox has all three, and since 1999 he has established himself as one of England's leading racehorse trainers. Typically producing shrewdly bought horses to win big races, Clive is equally at home training precocious Group 1 winning two year olds as he is at planning and landing big handicap wins.
Since moving to Beechdown in 2000, Clive has built a reputation for his success in big handicaps with his own well-bought purchases and since Beacon Lodge gave him his first Group race winner, in 2007, his standing as a trainer has been enhanced with further black-type success.
