Galileo Filly Wins Breeders' Cup Turf
Golden Horn might have won the Epsom Derby and Arc de Triomphe this year, but he had to settle for second in the Grade I Breeders' Cup Turf at Keeneland on Saturday when defeated by mighty filly Found (3f Galileo x Red Evie, by Intikhab). The Aidan O’Brien trained filly was a Grade I winner at two and has been competitive in many of the big races this year, but rose to a new level when overpowering Golden Horn in the final stages to win the mile and a half turf feature by half a length with Ryan Moore in the saddle. "She is a very tough filly,” Ryan Moore said. “She beat a champion and that is special too.” Found becomes the first 3-year-old filly to win the Breeders' Cup Turf and is the third winner of the Turf for her sire Galileo since 2006. "I'm absolutely delighted,” said Aidan O’Brien. “She's a very special mare. To run in two Champion Stakes [Irish and English], an Arc and then to come and win the Breeders' Cup Turf is quite remarkable. She's very special."
