“an absolute machine” Joseph O’Brien

  • By GALILEO, the world’s best sire (17 sons have sired Gr.1 winners).
  • Bred on the same potent GALILEO/DANEHILL cross as FRANKEL and TEOFILO
  • From the family of Group 1 sire STARSPANGLEDBANNER

Aidan O'Brien has trained many very special horses, champions whose toughness and determination have shone out as brightly as their class. The current globe-trotter Highland Reel (Galileo) follows in the footsteps of not only his own sire but also the likes of Giant's Causeway, Rock Of Gibraltar and High Chaparral" TDN, 15th June 2017

"As well as boasting the key qualities for precocity, brilliant class and durability, Highland Reel also has a pedigree that entitles him to excel at stud." Martin Steven, Racing Post
