Monday, 6th August 2012

Also at Goodwood in the UK, former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a group success when Australian-owned OTI's 4YO entire Quest For Peace (Galileo-Play Misty for Me, by Danehill Dancer) scored by 1.25-lengths for trainer Luca Cumani over 5YO entire Dandino (Dansili-Generous Diana, by Generous) fellow 4YO entire Gatewood (Galileo-Felicity, by Selkirk) in the £60,000 Gr2 Glorious Stakes (1 1/2 miles) at Goodwood. Winning this race for Luca Cumani for a 7th time, Quest For Peace took his record to 4 wins & 3 placings from 10 starts, in the process boosting his chances of making the Gr1 Melbourne Cup in November. Bookmakers reacted to the victory by trimming his odds into 20/1 for the 'Cup'. For in-depth race, winner & runner details click on the race name in this item.
