Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens has arrived at Castlehyde Stud

Kew Gardens has arrived at Castlehyde Stud where he will stand under the Coolmore N.H. banner. A son of the incomparable Galileo out of Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes winner Chelsea Rose, he was bred by the world-renowned Barronstown Stud.

As a two-year-old Kew Gardens won the Listed Zetland Stakes at Newmarket and the following season he landed a pair of Group 1’s namely the Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp and the St Leger Stakes at Doncaster. On his final start as a four-year-old he took the notable scalp of superstar Stradivarius on British Champions Day at Ascot.

“Kew Gardens is a fine big, strong, very good-looking horse with plenty of bone and a great walk,” said Castlehyde’s Cathal Murphy. “He’s by Galileo out of a Group 1-winning two-year-old, he was a good two-year-old himself and won France’s premier race for three-year-olds over a mile and a half. We think he’s a great addition to the roster here at Castlehyde.”

A fee for Kew Gardens will be announced at a later date.
