Golden Lilac Wins French Gr1 2000 Guineas
Also in France overnight, former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a Gr1 triumph when unbeaten Irish-bred daughter Golden Lilac (Galileo-Grey Lilas, by Danehill) maintained her perfect record with a 3-lengths victory in the €450,000 (A$626,000) Gr1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches-1000 Guineas (1600m) for 3YO fillies at Longchamp. Golden Lilac (ridden by Olivier Peslier for trainer Andre Fabre) defeated front-running fellow Irish-bred Glorious Sight (Singspiel-Zelding, by Warning) & Wild Wind (Danehill Dancer-Woman Secret, by Sadler's Wells). Golden Lilac took her record to 4 wins (also including April's Gr3 Prix De La Grotte over 1600m at Longchamp) from 4 starts for €326,130 (A$453,000) earnings.
