Gallant Tess Wins Breeders Classic

Monday, 3rd March 2008

Coolmore's Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a group success when favoured 4YO mare Gallant Tess (Galileo-Dragoncello, by Diesis) scored a 2.5-lengths victory in the $100,000 Gr2 Breeders Classic (1200m) for mares 4YO & up at Randwick. Gallant Tess (ridden by Jeff Lloyd for trainer David Payne) defeated 5YO mares Flying Alpha (Flying Spur-Indexed, by Marauding) & Shirl Pegasus (Fusaichi Pegasus-Night Rule, by Shirley Heights). Gallant Tess (passed-in after failing to make her $60,000 reserve at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 4 wins (also including 2006's Listed Fernhill Handicap over 1600m at Randwick) & 5 placings (including 2006's Gr1 Champagne Stakes over 1600m at Randwick, Gr2 Furious Stakes over 1400m at Randwick & Gr2 Tea Rose Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill) from 15 starts for $325,825 earnings.
