Galileo walking

US Grade Three Winner for Galileo

Improving mare Photo Call (4m Galileo x Theann, by Rock of Gibraltar) broke through for her first Black Type win when scoring a determined victory in the $99,000 Grade III Violet Stakes at Monmouth on the weekend.

Photo Call started her career in Ireland for David Wachman before transferring to the US and joining the stable of Graham Motion.

She’s been thereabouts in several Graded events this year and deserved her three-quarter length win in the 1 and 1/8th mile contest on turf.

Photo Call is the first stakes-winner for her stakes-winning dam Theann, a Grade III winning half-sister to Grade I winner Halfway to Heaven.
