Why not try? Galileo isn't getting any younger. If the cross isn't successful they can send her back to the US. Galileo over Smart Strike mares has worked. Maybe the cross produces a superstar.
Shadai buys alot of US dirt mares to send to Deep Impact, and they have had wonderful success.

As for why they tried with Rags to Riches. Her female family is loaded with top turf horses.

But. Why? :?


Maybe because Galileo is getting up there in years. Since they race primarily in Europe, maybe Coolmore decided to send her to their best stallion and arguably the best turf sire in the world.

No. I get it. It's actually an intriguing cross really.
More like a knee jerk reaction on my part.

Just unfortunate that couldn't overcome the failure of the Slew/Indy line on any major turf. Nor could Rags overcome Galileo's lack of success with a dirt runner.
Seems every foal got the dominant 'can't run on this surface' gene.

Rhett Butler was named Hungary's 2016 HOTY, Champion Older Horse and Champion Stayer. At least its something. I always wondered what Opulence would have done but she was injured before she had a chance to race.

Opulence's 2YO, Fort Wadsworth (by Verrazano) is in Japan. Hopefully he'll do well there and our trusty Japanese posters will keep us in the loop if they see some info about him.
