She is a horse girl with long grey hair with blunt bangs and purple eyes. She is always wearing a pillbox hat and a harness (that happens to hide her lack of human ears) and wears a small blue bow on the corner of her right ear. She is also one of the tallest horse girls (At 170 cm tall, only three characters are taller) and is actually renowned in-universe for her beauty. This aura of beauty is shattered whenever she talks, leading to the saying (and tag) "A beauty when she's silent, an oddity when she's speaking and an unsinkable ship when she's running". 黙れば美人、喋ると奇人、走る姿は不沈艦
The real-life horse is noted for being mercurial and unpredictable. This is translated into her being spontaneous and rather eccentric. She is also noted for her relationship with Mejiro McQueen (Real-Life Gold Ship's damsire or maternal grandfather), often pranking her or carrying her into whatever she's planning. Even her Trainer. In the anime, she is the founding member of the current incarnation of Team Spica as well as it's odd member (Mejiro McQueen would have been the closest to her if it weren't for the presence of - and focus on - Tokai Teio) while in the mobile game, she's the second member of Team Sirius to join after McQueen.
Gold Ship is also the self-proclaimed PR manager of the Umamusume franchise and a virtual youtuber, active since March of 2018. As a popular character and her real-life lineage having some serious implications in the Uma-verse (for one thing, she would be related to the Mejiro family), she is often being portrayed as a aged down child, usually with her real-life birth colors (chestnut). Her hat is so distinctive that, especially prior to her alt skin's implementation, there are jokes that she becomes unrecognizable without it and people who wear it are confused with her.
- Mejiro McQueen - Best Friend? Plaything? Teammate (RL Damsire and where he ultimately got his gray coat.)
- Tosen Jordan - Plaything? (They mutually hate each other in RL.)
- Air Shakur - Rival
- The rest of the Stay Gold Clan:
- Nakayama Festa - The only other member to be actually implemented. Merely of the same sire in RL.
- Orfevre - Unimplemented member. Shares the same sire and damsire in RL.
- Kin'iro Ryotei - Anime background character. Stand-in for Stay Gold.
- Point Flag (Racehorse) - RL Dam. Tag might be used for personified versions of her as the mother of Gold Ship.
- Just a Way (Racehorse) - RL Best Friend. More often than not depicted as one of his namesake dolls. Fans assume that horse girl Just a Way is Gold Ship's only possible roommate.
- Uberleben (Racehorse) - RL Daughter and most successful progeny (Winner of the 2021 Oaks). Tag might be used for personified versions of her.
