Writer notes that Galileo nicks best with Danehill sprinters

An article by Kevin Blake in the May 28 issue of The Irish Field narrows the phenomenal success of the Galileo/Danehll nick to Danehill mares that were best at distances less than 7 furlongs. English and Irish 2000 Guineas winners Frankel and Roderic O’Connor are both products of such matings. Click here to read the article.

  1. Blakes article is of great interst to me, since I posted a comment on Frank Mitchells Blog which includes a remark by Tesio to Piet DeWeerd to th effect that fast mares should be sent to stallions that can stay and carry weight, but not the reverse. DeWeerd mentioned that Tesio did not say why.
    Pity the article is too blurred for me to read it.
