Galileo in Orbit


This is Michael’s account of Galileo’s Derby victory

and his Notable Progeny thereafter


As a point to note, 40 years ago top stallions were usually limited to 40 mares per season and like Shergar were often syndicated as such.

Galileo’s dominant position and influence in Thoroughbred breeding, albeit with Frankel waiting in the wings, is strengthened by now having at least three times the opportunities of earlier sires.
