At Royal Randwick in Sydney, former Coolmore shuttler and triple Gr1-winning champion European sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) celebrated an elite race success when 8YO Irish-bred gelding Foundry (Galileo-Sharp Lisa, by Dixieland Band) proved the superior stayer when scoring a tough win in the $750,000 Gr1 The Metropolitan (2400m) for 3YO+, defeating Big Duke & Chocante. Owned by Lloyd Williams and formerly trained by Ballydoyle master Aidan O'Brien, Foundry improved his record to 3 wins and 6 placings (including the Gr2 VRC Blamey Stakes & Gr2 Great Voltigeur Stakes) from 16 starts for $670,509 in earnings. Foundry holds entries in both the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.
