US Stakes-winner for Galileo

Faufiler (Galileo) winning the Sand Springs Stakes (L) at Gulfstream

A homebred for the Niarchos family, blue-blooded mare Faufiler (5m Galileo x Six Perfections, by Celtic Swing) scored her first win on US turf when taking out the $100,000 Sand Springs Stakes at Gulfstream on Saturday.

A two -time stakes-winner in France when trained by Pascal Bary, Faufiler is now with Graham Motion and came with a strong late finishing burst to take the one mile contest on turf by a length.

A half-brother to Grade II winner Planet Five from Champion Filly Six Perfections, Faufiler has the overall record of five wins and four placings from 12 starts.
