In South Africa, former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a group success when Australian-bred 3YO gelding Alvaro (Galileo-Gun Lady, by Thatching) scored by 1-length in the Gr3 Winter Classic (1800m) at Kenilworth for trainer Justin Snaith. Alvaro (an $80,000 yearling consigned by Coolmore Stud & purchased by James Bester at the 2006 Magic Millions National Sale) took his record to 5 wins & 4 placings from 10 starts.
