Altano Wins France Gr1 Prix Du Cadran
In one of Europe's toughest staying contests, former shuttler Galileo added a Gr1 winner at Longchamp when 7YO gelding Altano (Galileo-Alanda, by Lando) scored a 2.5-lengths win for trainer Andreas Wohler in the €300,000 Gr1 Prix Du Cadran (4000m) for 4YOs+, over 6YO gelding Tac De Boistron (Take Risks-Pondiki, by Sicyos) & fellow 7YO gelding Times Up (Olden Times-Princess Genista, by Ile De Bourbon). German-bred Altano took his record to 12 wins (also including the Gr3 Oleander Rennen – twice – Gr3 Deutsches St Leger in Germany) & 8 placings (including the Gr2 Goodwood Cup at Goodwood & Gr3 St Leger Italiano at Milan) from 28 starts for £326,405 earnings.
