Monday, 23rd May 2011

Also in Ireland overnight, former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a 2nd Gr1 triumph (plus the quinella) when daughter Misty For Me (Galileo-Butterfly Cove, by Storm Cat) scored a 0.75-length victory in the €325,000 (A$452,000) Gr1 1000 Guineas (8 furlongs) for 3YO fillies at The Curragh. Misty For Me (ridden by Seamus Heffernan for trainer Aidan O'Brien) defeated stable-mate Together (Galileo-Shadow Song, by Pennekamp) & US-bred Laughing Lashes (Mr Greeley-Adventure, by Unbridled's Song). Misty For Me took her record to 4 wins (also including 2010's Irish Gr1 Moyglare Stud Stakes over 7 furlongs at The Curragh & French Gr1 Prix Marcel Boussac over 1600m at Longchamp) & a runner-up (in 2010's Irish Gr2 Debutante Stakes over 7 furlongs at The Curragh) from 7 starts.
