Golden Lilac Wins France Gr1 Prix De Diane
In France, former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a Gr1 triumph (& runner-up) when unbeaten Irish-bred daughter Golden Lilac (Galileo-Grey Lilas, by Danehill) maintained her perfect record with a 1-length victory in the €850,000 (A$1.165m) Gr1 Prix de Diane (2100m) for 3YO fillies at Chantilly. Golden Lilac (ridden by Maxime Guyon for trainer Andre Fabre) defeated Galikova (Galileo-Born Gold, by Blushing Groom) & fellow Irish-bred Glorious Sight (Singspiel-Zelding, by Warning). Golden Lilac took her record to 5 wins (also including May’s Gr1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches-1000 Guineas over 1600m at Longchamp & April's Gr3 Prix De La Grotte over 1600m at Longchamp) from 5 starts for €811,820 (A$1.112m) earnings.
