Galileo Adds UK Black-Type

Monday, 25th June 2012

Former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a UK black-type success when owner-breeder George Strawbridge's 4YO gelding Gatewood (Galileo-Felicity, by Selkirk) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the £55,000 (A$88,000) Listed Wolferton Stakes (10 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at Royal Ascot. Gatewood (ridden by William Buick for trainer John Gosden) scored by a neck from US-bred 5YO gelding Black Spirit (Black Minnaloushe-L'extra Honor, by Hero's Honor) with a further head to 4YO entire Mijhaar (Shirocco-Jathaabeh, by Nashwan). Gatewood took his record to 4 wins & a runner-up from 6 starts for £76,266 (A$122,000) earnings.
