Born on September 15m 1939, this chestnut son of
Wilson's Allen was
owned by Larry Moore, Jr. Out of the mare, Kerby's Lady Lou,
he was originally registered as Kerby's Gold Bond. This
name was later shortened to Gold Bond. Although not as
illustrious as his half brother, Midnight Sun, this handsome
stallion stood at Harlinsdale Farms for many years.
In the years from 1943 to 1955, Gold Bond was bred to some of the
top mares around, but he produced mostly mares. Although the
daughters of Gold Bond appear on the pedigrees of some of the
industry's top horses, he failed to produce a son of any
significance, and became, like
Merry Go Boy, one more great
stallion who sired predominantly winning distaff lines.
