Sweet Idea Covered By Galileo

Thursday, 7th April 2016

The Queen's racing adviser John Warren yesterday confirmed to Sky Racing's Andrew Bensley that Gr1-winning Australian mare Sweet Idea (Snitzel-Flidais, by Timber Country) has been served by champion European sire Galileo in the last few days. Trained by Gai Waterhouse, Sweet Idea won 8 of her 19 starts for over $2.4 million prize money with her biggest win coming in the 2015 Gr1 Galaxy (1100m) in Sydney. The daughter of Arrowfield Stud's high profile stallion Snitzel joined the Queen's Royal Studs at Sandringham after she was purchased for $1.6 million at last year's Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale on the Gold Coast. "Sweet Idea ticks all the boxes. She's a mare of Group One calibre who was a top two-year-old but also trained on to win at Group level at three and four," Warren told thoroughbredracing.com earlier this month. "She also nicks brilliantly with Galileo as a daughter of Snitzel, a grandson of Danehill."
