Dundalk Debut For Orby Sensation

Galileo | Coolmore

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Friday's Observations features a former Goffs Orby sensation.

17.30 Dundalk, Mdn, €15,000, 2yo, f, 8f (AWT)
MADAM CELESTE (IRE) (Galileo {Ire}) is the first foal out of the G2 Queen Mary S. and G2 Prix Robert Papin winner and G1 Prix Morny runner-up Signora Cabello (Ire) (Camacho {GB}) who at €750,000 was the second-highest-priced yearling sold at last year's Goffs Orby. Carrying the Newtown Anner Stud silks on her belated debut for the Ger Lyons stable, she meets 13 peers on her Polytrack bow.


17.15 Southwell, Novice, £6,600, 2yo, f, 7f 14y (AWT)
ELMALKA (GB) (Kingman {GB}) is a daughter of Nahrain (GB) (Selkirk), a broodmare close to trainer Roger Varian's heart as his first Group 1 winner during his first season with a licence. Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum's Prix de l'Opera heroine went on to add the GI Flower Bowl Invitational to her tally before producing the high-class multiple Group 1-winning globetrotter Benbatl (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) and this is her eighth foal.
