Happily Wins Gr1 Moyglare Stud Stakes
At The Curragh in Ireland overnight, former Coolmore shuttler and triple Gr1-winning champion European sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) celebrated an elite race success when 2YO filly Happily (Galileo-You’resothrilling, by Storm Cat) scored a brave head win for trainer Aidan O’Brien in the Gr1 Moyglare Stud Stakes (7 furlongs) for 3YO fillies, defeating stable-mates Magical & September. Owned by Coolmore's triumvirate Susan Magnier, Derrick Smith & Michael Tabor, Happily improved her record to 3 wins and 1 placing from 5 starts for €269,070 in earnings. Happily is a full-sister to three-time Gr1-winning champion miler Gleneagles and 1,000 Guineas winner Marvellous out of a sister to champion racehorse and leading sire Giant's Causeway.
