Galileo Adds UK Gr3

Tuesday, 27th April 2010

Former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a UK group success when Godolphin’s Irish-bred colt Chabal (Galileo-Vagary, by Zafonic) returned from a 6-months spell to score a 2.25-lengths victory in the £65,000 (A$108,000) Gr3 Classic Trial Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YOs at Sandown Park. Chabal (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Saseed Bin Suroor) defeated fellow colts Azmeel (Azamour-Best Side, by King's Best) & Irish-bred Simenon (Marju-Epistoliere, by Alzao). Chabal took his record to 2 wins & a runner-up (in 2009’s Irish Gr1 Vincent O'Brien National Stakes over 7 furlongs at The Curragh.) from 4 starts for £94,854 (A$157,000) earnings.
