Galileo (Ire) is the eMatings stallion of the week, for the week ended Sunday May 10.
The 11-year-old son of Sadler’s Wells and Arc winner Urban Sea, by Miswaki, was represented by three new stakes winners this week, including Epsom Derby contender Age of Aquarius (Ire), who won the G3 totesport.com Derby Trial Stakes at Lingfield on Saturday. Interestingly enough, Galileo himself is the half-brother to 2000 Guineas hero Sea the Stars, who’s one of the main contenders for the Derby. The 5-2 favorite for the Epsom classic is undefeated Fame and Glory, a son of Coolmore’s “other” Sadler’s Wells star, Montjeu (Ire). And at this stage of the game, it’s fact to say that the two best classic stallions in Europe are Galileo and Montjeu, who between them have dominated Europe’s Derbys over the past five years.
