Galileo Adds UK Gr3

Monday, 18th April 2011

On the UK track, former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a group success when Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte Farm home-bred unbeaten colt Frankel (Galileo-Kind, by Danehill) who was last season's European Champion 2YO Male returned from a 6-months spell to blitz his rivals by 4-lengths in the £50,000 (A$78,000) Gr3 Greenham Stakes (7 furlongs) for 3YO colts & geldings at Newbury. Hot favourite Frankel (ridden by Tom Queally for trainer Henry Cecil) defeated Irish-bred colts Excelebration (Exceed And Excel-Sun Shower, by Indian Ridge) & Shropshire (Shamardal-Shawanni, by Shareef Dancer). Frankel now has 5 wins (also including 2010's Gr1 Dewhurst Stakes over 7 furlongs at Newmarket & Gr2 Royal Lodge Stakes over 8 furlongs at Ascot) from 5 starts for £294,858 (A$457,000) earnings.
