Galileo Adds UK Gr2

Thursday, 22nd August 2013

At York in the UK overnight, former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a group success when highly touted 3YO colt Telescope (Galileo-Velouette, by Darshaan) scored an expected 1.25-lengths victory for trainer Sir Michael Stoute in the£150,000 Gr2 Great Voltigeur Stakes (12 furlongs) for 3YO c&g, over fellow 3YO colts Foundry (Galileo-Sharp Lisa, by Dixieland Band) & Secret Number (Raven's Pass-Mysterial, by Alleged). Early favourite for the Gr1 English Derby, Telescope took his record to 3 wins & 2 runners-up (including last start's Gr3 Rose Of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock) from 5 starts for £111,594 earnings. Campaigned by Highclere Thoroughbreds, Telescope looks destined to mature into one of Europe's better stayers.
