Aust-Owned Galileo Colt Adds UK Gr3
In the UK, former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a group success when Irish-bred 3YO colt Quest For Peace (Galileo-Play Misty For Me, by Danehill Dancer) scored a 2-lengths victory over his older rivals in the £55,000 (A$88,000) Gr3 Cumberland Lodge Stakes (12 furlongs) at Ascot. In his 1st start for new Australian connections OTI Racing (Terry Henderson & Simon O’Donnell), Quest For Peace (ridden by Kieren Fallon for trainer Luca Cumani) defeated favoured US-bred 4YO entire Arctic Cosmos (North Light-Fifth Avenue Doll, by Marquetry) & US-bred 9YO gelding Nanton (Spinning World-Grab The Green, by Cozzene); Godolphin’s Melbourne Cup entry Lost In The Moment finished 4th in the field of 7 runners. Quest For Peace now has 3 wins (also including July’s Irish Listed Lenebane Stakes over 12 furlongs at Roscommon) & 2 placings from 5 starts for £64,799 (A$104,000).
