Galileo (Ire), sire of  Saturday Curragh debuters Wordworth (Ire) and High Definition (Ire) | Coolmore

2.00 Curragh, Mdn, €16,500, 2yo, 8fT
WORDSWORTH (IRE) (Galileo {Ire}) is the latest progeny out of the G1 Moyglare Stud S. winner Chelsea Rose (Ire) (Desert King {Ire}) and is therefore a full-brother to the G1 St Leger and G1 Grand Prix de Paris hero Kew Gardens (Ire) and the smart group-placed 3-year-old Snow (Ire). Aidan O'Brien saddles the April-foaled chestnut, who is joined by stablemate High Definition (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), a full-brother to last year's G2 Beresford S. scorer Innisfree (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}).

2.35 Curragh, Mdn, €16,500, 2yo, 6fT
ST MARK'S BASILICA (FR) (Siyouni {Fr}) goes back to maiden company after finishing fifth as the 7-2 favourite for the G1 Phoenix S. over this course and distance earlier this month. Ballydoyle's half-brother to their 2019 G1 2000 Guineas hero Magna Grecia (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) who cost 1.3million gns at Tattersalls October Book 1 is one of a trio from the yard including the $950,000 purchase Prince of Verona (American Pharoah), a half-brother to the graded-stakes scorer You're To Blame (Distorted Humor) from the family of Gio Ponti.
