Galileo Half To Reckless Abandon Scores On Debut At Gowran

By Tom Frary

FAMILY TREE (GB) (c, 2, Galileo {Ire}–Sant Elena {GB} {SP-Can}, by Efisio {GB}), a 420,000gns TAOCT yearling, was sluggish from the outset and needed urging from Seamie Heffernan to close from worse than mid-division turning for home. Gettinng the message approaching the final furlong, the 5-1 shot rolled by Meagher’s Flag (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}) 100 yards out and hit the line the ultimately cosy winner by 3/4 of a length. The winner is a half-brother to the G1 Middle Park S., G1 Prix Morny, G2 Norfolk S. and G2 Prix Robert Papin-winning multiple highweight Reckless Abandon (GB) (Exchange Rate), and to this year’s G2 Tokyo Hai Aoba Sho runner-up Best Approach (GB) (New Approach {Ire}), MGSP-Jpn, $436,503. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €10,164. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
O-Susan Magnier; B-Car Colston Hall Stud (GB); T-Aidan O’Brien.
