In France overnight, former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a black-type success when Irish-bred 4YO mare Saturnine (Galileo-Katchina Quest, by Highest Honor) scored a 0.75-length victory in the €52,000 (A$88,000) Listed Prix Panacee (2400m) for fillies & mares at Toulouse. Saturnine (ridden by Thierry Thulliez for trainer Nicolas Clement) defeated fellow Irish-bred 4YO mare Mahaatheer (Daylami-Al Ihtithar, by Barathea) & 3YO filly Cavaliere (Traditionally-Lavandou, by Sadler's Wells). Previously this year, Saturnine also finished 3rd in July's French Listed Prix Du Carrousel (3100m) at Maisons-Laffitte; & during 2008 she placed in both the Listed Prix Belle De Nuit (2500m) at Fontainebleau & Listed Prix Madame Jean Couturie (2000m) at Vichy.
