Photo Call Wins Gr1 Rodeo Drive Stakes
At Santa Anita in the US, former Coolmore shuttler and triple Gr1-winning champion European sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a US Gr1 success when 4YO daughter Photo Call (Galileo-Theann, by Rock of Gibraltar) cruised to a 2.25-lengths victory for trainer Graham Motion in the US$300,000 Gr1 Rodeo Drive Stakes (10 furlongs) for f&m, 3YO+, over fellow 4YO mare Elektrum (High Chaparral-Carolines Secret, by Inchinor) & 6YO mare Stormy Lucy (Stormy Atlantic-Here Comes Lucinda, by Dixieland Band). Originally raced in Ireland, and in the money in her past 5 consecutive black-type events, Photo Call took her record to 4 wins (also including last start's Gr3 Violet Stakes at Monmouth) & 6 placings (including the Listed Perfect Sting Stakes, Gr3 Beaugay Stakes & Gr3 La Prevoyante Stakes) from 13 starts for US$ $339,562 earnings.
