Galileo Gold Well After St James's Win


Trainer Hugo Palmer said Galileo Gold (GB) (Paco Boy {Ire}) looked like “a trillion dollars” the morning after his win in the G1 St James's Palace S. at Royal Ascot. The Al Shaqab colourbearer, who was adding to his G1 Qipco 2000 Guineas score when besting fellow Guineas winners The Gurkha (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and Awtaad (Ire) (Cape Cross {Ire}) on Tuesday, is now on course for the G1 Sussex S. against elders at Goodwood July 27.

“It's been extraordinary in that every stride he's taken, he's improved physically,” Palmer reflected. “He looks a trillion dollars and he's never been better. The horse would have to be right, of course, but he's won before at Goodwood and the Sussex, which was the plan before Ascot, is still the obvious target.”
