A tribute to Galileo by Anne Alston (aka Red)

The Irish flat season has just gotten underway at Naas, and we saw the return to action of the latest crop of Galileo 3-year olds. His first runner coming in the shape of multiple Group 1 Alice Springs’ sister Hence who has an entry in two of the Irish classics the 1000 guineas and Oaks, she ran a solid race to finish 2nd on ground she would have hated. She showed us enough to whet the appetite for the coming season ahead and the dreams of more glory days not for any other reason than for the horse. 

The term Legend these days is thrown about like cheap confetti but not so in the case of Galileo for he is an “Equine Living Legend”.  He was born to two already accomplished parents in Sadler’s Wells and Urban Sea on the 30th March 1999 at Coolmore Stud in Fethard, his sire would win an incredible 14 sires titles in his career and would become a sire of sires and his dam would give birth to 11 foals and was considered a broodmare “Blue Hen” which means she produced multiple stakes horses of the highest calibre who would then go on to do the same, this is accomplished down the female line only.

The Making of a Legend: - 

In late 1999 as a yearling Galileo would have left Coolmore Stud to make the short journey to Ballydoyle stables where he would remain until his racing career was finished. He had been well handled since his birth and that would go a long way into shaping him into the race horse he would be then and into the stallion he is today, he is very professional in all that he does, and he has the perfect temperament, there is no nastiness about him which you can find with some stallions. He would finish growing and stand at 16.05 Hands High.

Galileo was so named by Sue Magnier in the first half of 2000 this was a name to be proud of a proper stallion’s name the Bay Colt would have a lot to live up to.  He would only make one race course appearance as a 2-year-old which came late in the season at Leopardstown in the October a race which he would win by 14 lengths and announce to the world that he was a colt full of potential. He was a colt who would be kept for a classic campaign in his 3-year-old season. He would run a further 7 times as a 3-year-old including winning the Epsom and Irish Derby’s. In his racing career he ran 8 times winning 6 and finishing 2nd in one. Alas we wouldn’t see him as a 4-year-old and we were left to dream on what might have been. Not for the horse’s sake you understand but for selfish reasons for the purely emotional attachment you make to horses that you see coming back year after year. There would be no Arc attempt with Galileo where I’m sure he would have run with distinction in his 4-year-old season.

At stud: - 

Galileo has been a phenomenal sire at stud as things currently stand he has sired 436 individual stakes winners with 168 individual group race winners and 70 individual group one winners, 37 of the are multiple Group 1 winners. He is also responsible for 29 individual classic winners and 8 multiple classic winners. He has been champion sire 9 times and we can only hope he has plenty more to come. 

The one person who should be credited with shaping Galileo into the sire he is today must surely belong to Classic winning trainer, owner and breeder Jim Bolger. He said, "John Magnier freely admits that things might have been different if it hadn’t been for me," If things had turned out differently there would be no 10-time Group 1 winner Frankel, 7-time Group 1 winner and multiple classic winner Minding and 7- time Group 1 winner Highland Reel to mention a few.

Galileo wouldn’t have had the same opportunities if he had ben exported elsewhere to stand at stud. He is arguably the world's most sought-after stallion and his record speaks for itself.

"Galileo is a very quiet horse, he's very easy to handle. He's very professional in his job - that's what makes him so good in my eyes. He's just a gentleman to have anything to do with. 

As he was such a good racehorse, he continued that form, from his breeding and temperament, into his new job and he's transferred that on to his progeny as well." Quotes a stallion groom. 

He is also inducted into the Irish horse racing’s hall of fame 2nd only to his sire saddler’s Wells in achieving that honour. That there tells you all you need to know about Galileo the perfect accolade. 

The greatest compliment I can give Galileo is to describe any offspring by him is their will to win and mental fortitude they would run through and equine brick wall for you and still come back for more. He truly is a class above. 

His 14th crop of 2-year olds will come into play this year hopefully they can give Galileo another 2-year-old sires title and have some genuine classic hopes for 2019. As things stand right now there are only 2 sires ahead of him in the all-time standings for the best Group/Grade 1 sire ever they are Danehill and Galileo’s father Sadler’s Wells, Galileo will soon pass both of them to become the greatest sire ever. 

Galileo’s son Australia has been given the title of Heir apparent he has a big weight of responsibility on his shoulders I can only hope he turns out in the same mould as his illustrious father at stud.

I look forward to my 4th visit with the remarkable stallion in the near future. Each and every time I see him I am in awe of him, he has a magical quality about him which is rare. I hope that he can be around longer than his grand sire Northern Dancer's 29 years and  pass his sire's 30 years. 

Should you wish to become better acquainted with Galileo from his birth onwards I suggest purchasing a copy of the Greatness of Galileo book.
