Sons of Galileo dominate Tatts Millions 3yo Cup
SONS of Galileo dominated the outcome to the £150,000 Tattersalls Millions 3-y-o Cup at Newmarket on Saturday, with the John Gosden-trained Michelangelo justifying favouritism to deny Cameron Highland.
The 1m2f race - which is restricted to horses sold at the Tattersalls October Sale - also provided a one-two for agent Charlie Gordon-Watson, who signed at 550,000gns for Michaelangelo on behalf of Bjorn Nielsen and at 310,000gns for Cameron Highland.
Bred by Denford Stud and Balmerino Bloodstock in Britain, Michelangelo boasts an excellent pedigree; he is a brother to 1m4f winner No Heretic and the second foal out of Intrigued, a Listed-placed half-sister to Aussie Rules and daughter of Nassau and Sun Chariot Stakes heroine Last Second.
Last Second is out of Alruccaba and therefore related to Group 1 winners such as Allegretto, Alborada, Albanova, Yesterday and Quarter Moon.
Intrigued has a two-year-old filly by Dansili named Curious Mind and a yearling colt and filly foal both by Galileo.
