Order Of St George Wins Gr1 Gold Cup
At Royal Ascot in the UK overnight, former Coolmore shuttler and triple Gr1-winning champion European sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a Gr1 success when 4YO entire Order Of St George (Galileo-Another Storm, by Gone West) scored by 3-lengths for trainer Aidan O'Brien in the Gr1 Gold Cup (20 furlongs). Forced to do more work than expected when pocketed for part of the trip, Order Of St George defeated 5YO entire Mizzou (Galileo-Moments Of Joy, by Darshaan) and 7YO gelding Sheikhzayedroad (Dubawi-Royal Secrets, by Highest Honor). A US$550,000 Keeeland September yearling graduate part-owned by Lloyd Williams, Order Of St George now has 6 wins (including the Gr1 Irish St Leger, Gr3 Irish St Leger Trial & Listed Saval Beg Stakes) and 3 placings from 11 starts.
