Mizzou wins G3 Sagaro for Galileo

The Luca Cumani-trained Mizzou (5h Galileo-Moments Of Joy, Darshaan) took Ascot’s G3 Sagarao Stakes for a second consecutive year on Wednesday. Jon Kelly’s son of Galileo held off Clever Cookie to take a competitive renewal of this G3 event and connections have their eye on a return to Ascot for the G1 Gold Cup in June. “It was a tougher assignment this year than it was last year but Mizzou showed his battling ability,” said Cumani. “We will be back here for the Gold Cup.”
