Galileo Adds 2nd UK Gr3

Monday, 11th May 2009

Former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a 2nd UK group success when front-running Irish-bred colt Age Of Aquarius (Galileo-Clara Bow, by Top Ville) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the £65,000 (A$135,000) Gr3 Derby Trial Stakes (11.5 furlongs) for 3YO colts & geldings at Lingfield Park. Age of Aquarius (ridden by Johnny Murtagh for trainer Aidan O'Brien) scored by a neck from fellow colt Montaff (Montjeu-Meshhed, by Gulch) with a further head to another colt Father Time (Dansili-Clepsydra, by Sadler's Wells). Age Of Aquarius was a sale-topping €1.4 million (A$2.6m) yearling at the 2007 Deauville August Sale & took his record to 2 wins from 3 starts for £53,493 (A$111,000) earnings.
