Observational Wins Listed Golden Mile

Monday, 23rd March 2015

At Bendigo in Melbourne, former Coolmore shuttler and triple Gr1-winning champion European sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a black-type success when 4YO UK-bred gelding Observational (Galileo-Party, by Cadeaux Genereux) made a brilliant Australian debut when charging home to score by 0.1-length for trainer Robert Hickmott in the $150,000 Listed Golden Mile (1600m) for 3YO+, over 5YO UK-bred gelding Evangelist (Oasis Dream-Hi Calypso, by In the Wings) & 5YO gelding Dylanson (Dylan Thomas-Nena Candida, by Canny Lad). The Lloyd and Nick Williams-owned Observational took his record to 2 wins (including the Listed Cocked Hat Stakes at Goodwood) and 2 placings from 6 starts for $215,481 earnings.
