Monday, 7th October 2013

At Randwick, former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a Gr1 success when imported 6YO entire Seville (Galileo-Silverskaya, by Silver Hawk) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Robert Hickmott in the $400,000 Gr1 Metropolitan (2400m) for 3YO+, over Irish-bred 7YO gelding Julienas (Cape Cross-Dora Carrington, by Sri Pekan) & fellow 6YO entire Sneak A Peek (Doyen-Occhi di Giada, by Shantou). This was Seville's maiden Gr1 victory and his first win since arriving in Australia. He took his record to 2 wins & 7 placings (including the Gr1 Turnbull Stakes, Gr1 Racing Post Trophy, Gr1 Irish Derby & Gr1 Grand Prix de Paris) from 18 starts for $987,169 earnings.
