Gleneagles was a Champion at 2 and a Champion miler at 3. His pedigree could hardly be bettered, being by Galileo and out of a sister to Giant’s Causeway. This sister, You’resothrilling, is arguably the most exceptional broodmare of modern times, producing four Gr.1 winners.

Gleneagles is free of the DANZIG blood. He has a Listed winner with a dam by DANEHILL. He has 5 black-type winners from 24 foals (21%), including Gr.1 winner Loving Dream and Gr.2 winners Insinuendo and Royal Dornoch, with mares by DANEHILL DANCER. The similarly-bred Churchill sired Gr.1-winning 2YO Blue Rose Cen from a grand-daughter of DANEHILL DANCER. Gleneagles sired Gr.2 winner Velocidad and the Group-placed Barina from DANSILI mares, as well as three black-type winners out of ORATORIO mares and Japanese Gr.3 winner Shock Action from a FASTNET ROCK mare.

Mares by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT are likely to reinforce Gleneagles’ juvenile ability, as was demonstrated when Southern Hills won the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot. He also sired Gr.2 winner Baby Rider from a daughter of OASIS DREAM, another son of GREEN DESERT. His Gr.3 winner Silence Please has a grandam by GREEN DESERT.

Gleneagles became the fourth son of Galileo to sire a black-type winner from a daughter of ANABAA when Royal Lytham won the Gr.2 July Stakes.

Gleneagles has important winners closely inbred to SADLER’S WELLS. His Gr.1 winners Loving Dream and Highland Chief are both inbred 3x3 with Highland Chief’s second line via MONTJEU. His Gr.2 winner Insinuendo is inbred 3x4, the second line via ENTREPRENEUR.

Gleneagles’ high-class 2022 2YO winner Royal Scotsman has a dam by PIVOTAL. Galileo sired 11 Group winners from PIVOTAL mares. Gleneagles’ first runner out of a THEATRICAL mare is the Listed winner Measure of Time.

Gleneagles’ Gr.1-winning son Highland Chief has a second dam by DARSHAAN. Galileo sired Gr.1 winners from three generations of descendants from MILL REEF. A DARSHAAN mare produced Gr.2 winner The Foxes to Churchill.

Mares by MONSUN are another potentially fertile source of middle-distance winners. They have produced the top-class Vadeni to Churchill and the Arc winner Waldgeist to Galileo.

Ladies Church, one of Churchill’s fastest Group winners, has a dam by RIO DE LA PLATA, a son of RAHY and Galileo has a Gr.1 winner from a BLUSHING GROOM mare.

Gleneagles should benefit from more MR PROSPECTOR blood. His high-class 2022 2YO Royal Scotsman has a second dam by GONE WEST. Gleneagles’ smart daughter Novemba has a dam by Kingmambo’s son DUBAI DESTINATION. Two of Gleneagles’ good 2YO winners, Seisai and Southern Hills, have grandams by KING’S BEST. While his 2022 Gr.3 winner Silence Please has a dam by MACHIAVELLIAN.

Gleneagles’ speed could be reinforced by mares with AHONOORA blood, and his Gr.3-winning 2YO Shock Action has a second dam by INDIAN RIDGE. ACCLAMATION is out of an AHONOORA mare and his daughters have produced Group winners to three other sons of Galileo.

Gleneagles already has Group performers out of daughters of LEAR FAN, DR FONG and INTIKHAB. ROBERTO and RED RANSOM sired the grandams of two of his black-type winners.

Gleneagles sired Gr.3 winner Jumbly from a daughter of SELKIRK, a son of SHARPEN UP.
