Galileo Adds UK Black-Type

Tuesday, 20th October 2009

In the UK overnight, former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a juvenile black-type success when Irish-bred daughter Gallic Star (Galileo-Oman Sea, by Rahy) gained the judge's decision over her male rivals in a 3-way photo-finish to the £35,000 (A$64,000) Listed Silver Tankard Stakes (8 furlongs) for 2YOs at Pontefract. Gallic Star (ridden by Chris Catlin for trainer Mick Channon) scored by a short-head from front-running gelding Tominator (Generous-Jucinda, by Midyan) with a further short-head to the colt Namecheck (Shamardal-Nadia, by Nashwan).
