The latest table of Sires of Group One winners in the Northern hemisphere is drawing anyone into debate, as to whether GALILEO is the “real deal” and the second coming of SADLER’S WELLS, and must surely have had his reservations assuaged. This is how they stand:

Top Ten Sires of 2008 Northern Hemisphere Grade/Group 1 Winners.

Miraculously, and before the run of GALILEO’s achievements broke, the snouts of the Summerhill bloodhounds were sniffing around the Southern hemisphere for his progeny, in order to enhance our offering for the forthcoming Emperors Palace Ready to Run sales. There are three beautifully bred progeny of GALILEO among the entries, and we guess they’ll come to the market at a fraction of what you’d have to pay today for a service to Europe’s Champion Sire-Elect.
