Sandown Debut For Galileo's Craven Breeze-Up Topper

Galileo | Emma Berry

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 seven-figure 2-year-old by Galileo (Ire).

14.40 Sandown, Mdn, £10,000, 2yo, 7fT
ROYAL OFFICER (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) is Godolphin's 1million gns Craven Breeze-Up topper who missed his intended debut at Haydock last week due to the quickening ground. A half-brother to the listed scorer Hidden Dimples (Ire) by Galileo's flagship son Frankel (GB) from the family of the sire Gregorian (Ire), the Charlie Appleby-trained Coolmore-bred has it to do taking on the Gosdens' Yarmouth runner-up Attack (GB) (Wootton Bassett {GB}), a €460,000 Goffs Orby Book 1 purchase who is a son of the G1 Prix Marcel Boussac heroine Albigna (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) representing Qatar Bloodstock, China Horse Club & David Howden.

 

16.50 Cork, Mdn, €18,000, 2yo, 6fT
SWEET CHARIOT (IRE) (Wootton Bassett {GB}) is Ballydoyle's third foal out of the G1 Cheveley Park S. heroine Clemmie (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), the full-sister to the multiple Group 1-winning sire Churchill (Ire) whose daughter Unless (Justify) was a listed winner and Group 3-placed for the stable. In opposition is Juddmonte's Babouche (GB) (Kodiac {GB}), a Ger Lyons-trained full-sister to the talented Zarinsk (GB) who picked up four pattern-race contests for the yard.
