Monday, 30th April 2007

Fellow Coolmore shuttler Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added also a UK group success when 4YO entire Red Rocks (Galileo-Pharmacist by Machiavellian) "returned from a fruitless trip to Dubai" (9th behind Vengeance Of Rain in last month's Gr 1 Dubai Sheema Classic) to notch a 2-lengths victory in the £50,000 (A$120,000) Gr3 Gordon Richards Stakes (10 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at Sandown Park, reported thoroughbredinternet.com. Red Rocks (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Brian Meehan) defeated Sheikh Hamdam Al Maktoum's Mashaahed (In The Wings-Patacake Patacake, by Bahri) & front-running Kandidate (Kabool-Valleyrose, by Royal Academy). Last season as a 3YO Red Rocks defeated his older rivals in November's US Gr1 Breeders' Cup Turf (12 furlongs on turf) at Churchill Downs, after finishing 3rd in the Gr1 English St Leger & before that runner-up to French Gr1 Prix l'Arc de Triomphe winner Rail Link in the Gr1 Grand Prix de Paris; overall Red Rocks now boasts 4 wins & 6 placings from 12 starts.
