Goldwyn was a lovely bay filly with a prominent white streak on her face. She was sired by Goldhill, who had been trained by Peter Easterby and stood at Easthorpe Stud. She was picked up for a mere 1500 gns at Doncaster Sales, and sold on to owner Billy Wilson, a former captain of Bridlington Golf Club.

A filly with a 'quiet, placid nature', Goldwyn ran eight times as a two year old. She ran first time out at Ripon with Jock Skilling in the saddle and then recorded her first win at Catterick ridden by Jock. She put a big field to the sword and landed a huge gamble, being backed from 10-1 into 6-4.

Goldwyn will always be remembered for completing a magnificent seven-timer, with further wins at York, Thirsk, Lanark, Hamilton, Edinburgh and Newcastle. Jimmy Etherington rode her in her last five wins. Her most notable win was the Seaton Delaval Stakes for two year old sprinters at Newcastle in 1969. She hardly came off the bit in her wins, and was the fastest filly in the North according to Peter Moore writing in the 'Racehorse'.

Goldwyn went on to have a successful career as a broodmare. Her daughter Gold Cheb was second six times in a row as a two year old!
