Aussie Stakes-Winner for Galileo
Lightly raced import Observational (4g Galileo x Party, by Cadeaux Genereux) opened his Australian career with a narrow win in the Listed Yalumba Golden Mile at Bendigo on Saturday. Now owned by Nick and Lloyd Williams and trained by Robert Hickmott, Observational charged home from back in the field after drawing the extreme outside gate and looked impressive in taking the one mile feature by a short half head. Connections will no doubt be looking at a Cups campaign in the spring for this talented gelding, that won a Listed race at Goodwood before coming to Australia and now has two wins and two seconds on his resume from just six starts. Observational is from stakes-winning juvenile Party from the family of Champion HK Stayer Dominant.
