In South Africa overnight, former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a juvenile group success when Australian-bred daughter Mahbooba (Galileo-Sogha, by Red Ransom) maintained her unbeaten record with a 0.75-length victory in the R200,000 (A$29,000) Gr2 The Debutante (1200m) for 2YO fillies at Scottsville. Mahbooba (ridden by Kevin Shea for trainer Mike de Kock) defeated fellow Australian-bred Big On Broadway (Fusaichi Pegasus-La Favorita, by Seattle Dancer) & Legal Account (Lake Coniston-Golden National, by National Emblem). Mahbooba now has 2 wins from 2 starts.
