Galileo Adds UK Gr3

Friday, 1st May 2015

At Ascot in the UK on Wednesday, former Coolmore shuttler and triple Gr1-winning champion European sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a Group success when 4YO entire Mizzou (Galileo-Moments of Joy, by Darshaan) scored by 2-lengths for trainer Luca Cumani in the Gr3 Sagaro Stakes (16 furlongs) for 4YO+, over fellow 4YO entires Vent de Force (Hurricane Run-Capriolla, by In the Wings) & Forever Now (Galileo-All's Forgotten, by Darshaan). This was the first stakes victory for the progressive Mizzou who took his record to 4 wins and 1 placing (the Listed Noel Murless Stakes) from 6 starts for £62,782 earnings. Mizzou will now head towards the Gr1 Gold Cup during the Royal Ascot carnival. Sara Cumani, wife of trainer Luca, told racing Post: "Luca has a lot of faith in him and has been saying all winter he was his Gold Cup horse. They went a decent pace, which suited him." She added, "He'll now go to Sandown for the Henry II and then on to the Gold Cup."
