Tuesday (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), a winner of the G1 Cazoo Oaks and the GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf, has been retired from racing to become a broodmare.

Raced by Westerberg, Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith, the Coolmore-bred bay started 10 times, her final eight all in Group 1 company. Off the mark at second asking in her 3-year-old bow at Naas in March, she ran third in the G1 1000 Guineas in May, before going one better in the G1 Irish 1000 Guineas later that month. Stepped up in trip at Epsom, Tuesday prevailed by a nose on June 3. Also, second in the G1 Yorkshire Oaks two starts later in August, she attended the Breeders' Cup on the back of a sixth-place run in the G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe to triumph by a length on Nov. 5. Her record stands at 10-3-3-1, $1,828,827.

“Obviously, we were delighted with what Tuesday achieved,” said trainer Aidan O'Brien. “She had a great run in the Guineas, then won the Oaks and to finish off winning at the Breeders' Cup was incredible really.”

Out of G1 Coronation S. and G1 Matron S. heroine Lillie Langtry (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}), Tuesday is a full-sister to seven-time Group 1 winner Minding (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), fellow Classic winner and Group 1 winner Empress Josephine (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and G3 Derrinstown Stud 1000 Guineas Trial heroine Kissed By Angels (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). This is the extended family of G1 Prix de l'Opera scorer and G1 Prix Saint-Alary second Place Du Carrousel (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}).
