Well he snatched another G2-winner today in a longshot at Oaklawn so given his upcoming crop(s) he might be given more of a chance again. Plus he must be now the last major son of Maria's Mon?

On paper he didnt have a ton of G1 winners, but when he did, he sure did make it count. Two Derby/Arc doubles and the amazing Ouija Board. A real shame to hear of his passing, 23 still seems young

Very sad to hear this. I can't imagine a racing world without his great progeny. RIP, Cape Cross.

Postponed has been retired due to a stress fracture. I suspect the handsome son of Dubawi will be a popular stallion prospect.

2 more Classic winners for Galileo, in 2 days.

Churchill took the 2000 Guineas yesterday and now Winter took the fillies version just this morning.

No idea why anyone even runs up against Coolmore and their Galileos in the Classics :?

To be fair last year it wasn't a Galileo who won the Guineas (though Galileo was the damsire... :lol: )
I suppose the question should be 'which Galileo will win' if there are more than one in the field...

I agree, as much as I congratulate Coolmore on their empire, I hate seeing them in big races all the time. Especially when they have 5 runners or something like that. Coolmore and Godolphin are the two major breeding and racing operations I'm really not fond of at all. I do like Juddmonte though!
