South African Stakes-Winner for Galileo
Australian bred mare Dance to the Stars (5m Galileo x Dance on Wood, by Woodman) scored her first Black Type win in South Africa on Friday taking the Listed East Cape Paddock Stakes at Fairview. A five year-old daughter of Galileo trained by Gavin Smith, Dance to the Stars took the 1600 metre feature by a length and has the overall record of six wins from 27 starts. Retained to race by her breeder, Dance to the Stars was foaled and raised at Coolmore and is the first stakes-winner for Group III placed Woodman mare Dance on Wood. Dance to the Stars is the 109th stakes-winner for Coolmore’s champion sire Galileo.
