Henry Cecil has taken his time with Late Telegraph and his patience has paid off

The Henry Cecil-trained colt did not run as a juvenile, but he showed tenacity to just get up to win in the last stride, despite hanging right through the straight.

Late Telegraph is a brother to the winner Dance At Dawn, while his dam Bywayofthestars (Danehill) is a half-sister to the Irish Oaks winner Moonstone, Irish Oaks second L'Ancresse and Prix Saint-Alary winner Cerulean Sky.

The Castlebridge Consignment is due to offer a Galileo half-brother at this year's October Sale.
