Marvellous Wins Gr1 Irish 1,000 Guineas
At The Curragh in Ireland, former shuttler and triple Gr1-winning champion European sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) celebrated a Gr1 Classic success when 3YO filly Marvellous (Galileo-You'resothrilling, by Storm Cat) scored by 3-lengths for trainer Aidan O'Brien in the €300,000 Gr1 Irish 1,000 Guineas (8 furlongs) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Lightning Thunder (Dutch Art-Sweet Coincidence, by Mujahid) & Vote Often (Beat Hollow-Minority, by Generous). This was Marvellous' first stakes victory and took her record to 2 wins from 3 starts for €184,005 earnings. The beautifully bred Marvellous is out of Gr2 Cherry Hinton winner You'resothrilling, a full sister to outstanding stallion Giant's Causeway.
