Galileo Adds UK Gr3

Monday, 14th May 2012

In the UK, former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a group success when Irish-bred colt Astrology (Galileo-Ask For The Moon, by Dr Fong) slaughtered his rivals by 11-lengths in the £55,000 (A$83,000) Gr3 Dee Stakes (10.5 furlongs) for 3YO colts & geldings at Chester. Astrology (ridden by Joseph O'Brien for trainer Aidan O'Brien) defeated US-bred colt Oxford Charley (Lemon Drop Kid-La Sarto, by Cormorant) & fellow Irish-bred colt Kingsdesire (King's Best-Lucky Clio, by Key Of Luck). Astrology was a 400,000 guineas (A$620,000) weanling at the 2009 Tattersalls December Sale. Overall he now has 2 wins & 2 placings (in 2011's Irish Gr2 Futurity Stakes over 7 furlongs at the Curragh & UK Gr3 Autumn Stakes over 8 furlongs at Newmarket) from 4 starts for £52,332 (A$78,000) earnings.
