The Coolmore contingent has purchased an interest in MSW Galilean (Uncle Mo) ahead of his impending start in Saturday’s GI Arkansas Derby.
“We are immensely gratified to have Coolmore join us in the ownership of Galilean as he looks to lock down a spot in the Kentucky Derby,” West Point CEO Terry Finley said.
Opening his account with a win in the Barretts Juvenile S. in September, the $600,000 BARMAR topper was second to ‘TDN Rising Star’ Cruel Intentions (Smiling Tiger) in the Golden State Juvenile S. in November and returned to winning ways in the King Glorious S. at Los Al Dec. 16. A decisive victor of the California Cup Derby Feb. 18 at Santa Anita, Galilean was third behind Long Range Toddy (Take Charge Indy) and Improbable (City Zip) in the split GII Rebel S. at Oaklawn Mar. 16.
