Europe’s leading sire Galileo posted a US stakes-winner on the weekend when Cedar Mountain (5g Galileo x Ventura, by Spectrum) took out the Listed Round Table Handicap at Hollywood Park.

Trained by Neil Drysdale for the Augustin Stable, Cedar Mountain came from last in the early stages to sweep home and claim the 1 and ¾ mile turf event by two and three-quarter lengths taking his overall record to three wins and four placings from nine starts.

Cedar Mountain becomes the 33rd stakes-winner worldwide for Galileo who is leading the European sires table with a string of classy performers led by English Derby hero New Approach and Group One Epsom Coronation Cup winner Soldier of Fortune.

Summerhill Stud will have three Galileos on offer at this year’s Emperor’s Palace Ready To Run sale come the first Sunday in November.
