Gold River's first Group One win came in the 1980 Prix Royal-Oak. The following year she finished third in the Royal-Oak but won the Prix Jean Prat and the Prix du Cadran. In the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, Gold River was ridden to victory by jockey Gary W. Moore. In her Arc win, Gold River defeated Bikala and the American-bred filly, April Run.
Following her retirement from racing, Gold River served as a broodmare at Hagyard Farm in Lexington, Kentucky where her offspring included Riviere d'Or, a multiple stakes winner in France including the Group One Prix Saint-Alary.
Gold River died in 1986 and is buried in Hagyard Farm's equine cemetery.
