NORTHERN HEMISPHERE-BRED GR.1 AND GR.2 WINNERS BY AUSTRALIA’S SIRE GALILEO, See Galileo. MATING SUGGESTIONS: One of the first questions asked about any stallion son of Galileo is whether his pedigree allows him a chance to replicate his sire’s exceptional results with the DANZIG male line. With Australia the answer is “Yes,” as the great stallion will be back in the fifth generation of his foals’ pedigrees. DANEHILL mares surely have a lot to offer Australia. Galileo’s 27 northern hemisphere Group winners out of DANEHILL mares feature the brilliant Frankel, the champion two-year-old Teofilo, the Breeders’ Cup and King George winner Highland Reel and the classic winners Intello, Golden Lilac, Cima de Triomphe and Roderic O’Connor. Four sons of Galileo already have stakes winners out of DANEHILL mares, including the Gr.1 Phoenix Stakes winner Dick Whittington. This success story now extends to mares by sons of DANEHILL . Galileo’s achievements with mares by DANEHILL DANCER are rivalling his record with DANEHILL mares, siring nine Group winners headed by the classic winners Minding and The Gurkha and Gr.1 winner Alice Springs. There are also Gr.1 winners out of mares by ROCK OF GIBRALTAR , HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR and MOZART. Galileo has an excellent record with ANABAA mares, which have also made a promising start with Teofilo. Although Australia is out of a brilliant daughter of Cape Cross, this doesn’t rule out mares by the other high-class stallion sons of GREEN DESERT . For example, daughters of INVINCIBLE SPIRIT and OASIS DREAM create just 4x3 to GREEN DESERT . Daughters of GREEN DESERT have produced 13% Group winners to Galileo, including the Oaks winner Was. Teofilo has already sired Group winners from a daughter and a grand-daughter of GREEN DESERT . The CHIEF’S CROWN branch of the DANZIG male line also comes into the picture. Teofilo sired the Irish St Leger winner Voleuse de Coeurs and the Irish Derby winner Trading Leather from mares by GRAND LODGE and his son SINNDAR respectively. A branch of the Northern Dancer line which has enjoyed repeated classic success with Galileo is the one represented by STORM CAT . Galileo now has eight Group/Graded winners from 49 foals out of daughters of STORM CAT (20 per cent) and five of them – Churchill, Gleneagles, Ballydoyle, Misty For Me and Marvellous – are Gr.1 winners. As Marvellous and Gleneagles are out of a sister to GIANT’S CAUSEWAY , this is an avenue well worth exploring. The Dewhurst Stakes victory by Teofilo’s son Parish Hall opened the door to close inbreeding to SADLER’S WELLS , as he is out of a MONTJEU mare. Another son of Galileo has Gr.2 and Gr.3 2yo winners inbred 3x4 and 3x3 to SADLER’S WELLS , the dams being by TOBOUGG and REFUSE TO BEND . Galileo has also had good results with the NUREYEV line, including five Group winners headed by Gr.1 winner Rhododendron from 26 foals out of PIVOTAL mares (19 per cent). His son New Approach sired the Oaks winner Talent from a PEINTRE CELEBRE mare. Galileo also has Gr.1 winners out of daughters of THEATRICAL and STRAVINSKY . Australia should be a natural for the MILL REEF line. Galileo has sired Gr.1 winners from three generations of descendants from Mill Reef. Altogether Galileo has ten Group winners out of DARSHAAN mares. He also has 23% stakes winners with Darshaan’s son MARK OF ESTEEM , including the Irish Derby winner Treasure Beach. DARSHAAN mares produced the Gr.3 winner Toulifaut to Frankel, plus the Derby second Libertarian to New Approach. Galileo is excelling with the ROBERTO line, notably siring the King George and Eclipse winner Nathaniel, the Irish Oaks heroine Great Heavens and the Gr.1 winner Seville from daughters of SILVER HAWK . He has 45% stakes winners from 11 foals out of SILVER HAWK mares. He has also sired Group winners from daughters of DYNAFORMER , KRIS S. LEAR FAN , RED RANSOM , DR FONG , SRI PEKAN and INTIKHAB (Arc winner Found). Galileo sired the Gr.1 winner Galikova from a BLUSHING GROOM mare, while RAINBOW QUEST sired the dam of Teofilo’s Gr.1 winner Quest For More and the second dams of Frankel, Noble Mission and Curvy; ARAZI sired the second dam of Lush Lashes and RAHY sired the second dams of Marvellous, Gleneagles and Deauville. New Approach’s Oaks winner Talent also has a second dam by RAINBOW QUEST . Frankel and Teofilo have both sired Gr.2 winners from daughters of RAHY.


Galileo has numerous good winners inbred to MR PROSPECTOR within four generations but MR PROSPECTOR is a generation further back in Australia’s pedigree. Galileo’s high-class daughters Ballydoyle, Misty For Me and Tapestry have second dams by MR PROSPECTOR . Galileo’s Derby winner Ruler Of The World has a dam by KINGMAMBO , his Breeders’ Cup Turf winner Red Rocks is out of a MACHIAVELLIAN mare and top stayer Order of St George has a dam by GONE WEST . AUSTRALIA is most likely to benefit from mares with AHONOORA blood. Galileo’s classic winners New Approach and Was respectively have a dam and a second dam by this top sprinter. Galileo also has three Group winners from mares by INDIAN RIDGE , and sired the Gr.1 winner Curvy from an INCHINOR mare. The SHARPEN UP line is another guaranteed to suit Australia, as it has produced a classic winner to his sire Galileo and has enjoyed plenty of success with several other sons of Sadler’s Wells.

MATING SUGGESTIONS: It was by only three-quarters of a length that Camelot failed to become the first Triple Crown winner since Nijinsky in 1970. His sire Montjeu has been one of the greatest classic influences of modern times, with Camelot ranking as one of his four winners of the Derby and four winners of the Irish Derby. Montjeu also sired three winners of France’s top mile-and-a-half test for three-year-olds, the Grand Prix de Paris, and two of the AJC Australian Derby. It was his speed which makes Camelot so exceptional. Not only did he cruise to victory in the Gr.1 Racing Post Trophy at two, but he also defeated 17 rivals to become Montjeu’s only classic winner over a mile, in the 2,000 Guineas. With Montjeu as his sire and a grand-daughter of Mr Prospector as his dam, Camelot is bred on a similar pattern to Motivator, sire of the brilliant Treve. As Treve is out of a grand-daughter of DANZIG , by ANABAA , this line merits serious consideration with Camelot. Therefore consider mares by such as GREEN DESERT , POLISH PRECEDENT and WAR FRONT . Three sons of Montjeu have Group winners out of ANABAA mares, so this is a compelling option. Montjeu sired Gr.1 winner Bracelet and Gr.2 winner Wading from a mare by GREEN DESERT . Camelot should be ideal for OASIS DREAM , INVINCIBLE SPIRIT and CAPE CROSS mares. Daughters of SEA THE STARS should reinforce Camelot’s classic potential. Camelot’s first yearlings included a 260,000gns colt out of an OASIS DREAM mare. Several of Camelot’s high-priced yearlings were inbred 4x3 to DANEHILL . They included a 400,000gns colt out of a DANSILI mare, while DANEHILL DANCER sired the dams of yearlings which sold for 330,000gns and 270,000gns. Montjeu sired Gr.1 winners in both hemispheres from GRAND LODGE mares. Expect excellent results when Camelot is combined with the SHIRLEY HEIGHTS line. Montjeu’s accomplished son Fame And Glory has a SHIRLEY HEIGHTS dam, a mare by DARSHAAN produced the Derby winner Pour Moi and another produced the Australian Gr.1 winner Offer. Two of Montjeu’s sons have Gr.1 winners with DARSHAAN mares. Montjeu has four Gr.1 winners from the ZEDDAAN line. The stallions involved are KALAMOUN , his sons BIKALA and KENMARE and his grandson KENDOR . Sons of Montjeu have sired Gr.3 winners from RAINBOW QUEST mares, plus others from daughters of RAHY and QUEST TO FAME . Montjeu sired Authorized from a mare by SAUMAREZ , a son of RAINBOW QUEST , and also had stakes winners with mares by ARAZI , NASHWAN , RAHY and RAINBOW QUEST . Camelot’s first yearlings included a 300,000gns colt with a dam by SPECTRUM . A second line of MR PROSPECTOR is attractive in view of the scale of Montjeu’s success with that line. Motivator and Leading Light are from GONE WEST mares, Gallante and Geoffrey Chaucer from MACHIAVELLIAN mares and Frozen Fire from a WOODMAN mare. Montjeu has three Group winners from ZAFONIC mares. LYPHARD sired the second dam of Authorized, while his sons PHARLY and BELLYPHA also sired the second dams of some of Montjeu’s Gr.1 winners. LINAMIX is the broodmare sire of the high-class Montmartre and also of the very smart Ectot, a son of Hurricane Run. Authorized has two black-type fillies out of GALILEO mares, including the classic-placed Rehn’s Nest, which are inbred 3x3 to SADLER’S WELLS . There is also a Gr.1 winning juvenile whose grandsires are Galileo and Montjeu. Camelot’s first yearlings out of GALILEO mares included a €320,000 filly and a €200,000 colt. Montjeu also had three talented winners out of mares by PEINTRE CELEBRE , a son of NUREYEV . The similarly-bred Motivator is showing promise with the STORM BIRD line, siring a Gr.2 winner from a BLUEBIRD mare and a Gr.3 winner from a CAT THIEF mare. SHARPEN UP is a path to follow with Camelot, as he sired the second dams of Motivator and Hurricane Run. Montjeu’s sons have Group winners out of mares by SELKIRK , TREMPOLINO , DIESIS and by Diesis’ son ELMAAMUL . Montjeu’s top son St Nicholas Abbey was out of a mare by Kris’s son SURE BLADE . HALLING mares are another option. Mares by PENNEKAMP , a son of BERING , produced the Gr.1 winner Jan Vermeer to Montjeu. Another son of Montjeu has a Gr.3 winner out of a BERING mare. Camelot’s €360,000 yearling colt haS a dam by BERING . AHONOORA line mares could be a good match, as three other sons of Montjeu have Group winners from them. The stallions involved include INCHINOR , INDIAN RIDGE and DR DEVIOUS .

He scored by a facile seven lengths on his debut in May and then quickened away to take the Gr.2 Coventry Stakes by six. Canford Cliffs was much more than just a precocious talent though. At three he reeled off Gr.1 victories in the Irish 2,000 Guineas, St James’s Palace S. and Sussex S. He extended the sequence of Gr.1 victories to five as a four-year-old, taking the Lockinge S. prior to using his brilliant acceleration to defeat the exceptional Goldikova in the Queen Anne S. From the Hail To Reason male line and with a dam by Marju, Canford Cliffs is bred along similar lines to Big Bad Bob, who did well from limited opportunities.


As a representative of the Hail To Reason male line, Canford Cliffs also possesses a pedigree which should make him a valuable outcross for many mares. The GREEN DESERT branch of the DANZIG line has made a fast start with Canford Cliffs. His sire Tagula sired the smart sprinter Tax Free from a grand-daughter of Green Desert and now Canford Cliffs has sired the Gr.3 winners Al Jazi and Most Beautiful from CAPE CROSS mares. He has also sired the useful miler Aspen Mountain from only two runners out of daughters of OASIS DREAM . Canford Cliffs has already sired the French Listed winner Aktoria from a daughter of ZAFONIC and his first two Group winners have grand-daughters of MR PROSPECTOR as their second dams, by SEEKING THE GOLD and GULCH . He has already made his mark with GALILEO mares, siring the Gr.1 runner-up Salouen and the very useful Wall of Fire. His sire’s very smart son Limato is out of a mare by SINGSPIEL . His first runner out of a MONTJEU mare is a useful winner in France. His Group winner Princess Asta is out of an UNFUWAIN mare and is therefore inbred 5x3 to NORTHERN DANCER as well as being 4x4 to STOP THE MUSIC . KYLLACHY is the broodmare sire of Canford Cliffs’ Gr.2 winner Painted Cliffs. This suggests he could also suit daughters of PIVOTAL too. The brothers EL GRAN SENOR and TRY MY BEST are an interesting option. Mares by Try My Best’s grandson ROYAL APPLAUSE are likely to reinforce Canford Cliffs’ juvenile ability, and the same applies to ACCLAMATION . Harlequeen, third in the Oaks and Irish Oaks, has a dam by RAINBOW QUEST who also sired the grandam of Gr.1 2yo Salouen. Canford Cliffs already has winners out of daughters of DALAKHANI , DAYLAMI and SHIRLEY HEIGHTS , with the last-named siring the second dam of the classic-placed Harlequeen. More Than Ready, Red Ransom, Sunday Silence and Fuji Kiseki are among the other members of the Hail To Reason male line which have Gr.1 winners from DANEHILL mares. Canford Cliffs already has the useful Stargazer from a ROCK OF GIBRALTAR mare.
