22 Oct 2015 | 

Dirgam (3 g ex Pieds De Plume by Seattle Slew) became stakes winner number 205 for Coolmore Stud’s champion sire Galileo (Sadler’s Wells) when winning the Prix Vulcain (Listed, 2500m) at Deauville yesterday. 

The three-year-old stepped up from his last attempt at stakes level, when third in the Prix Frederic de Lagrange (Listed, 2400m), to register a one and a half length victory from the favourite Grey Lion (Galileo). The filly Slatina (Mastercraftsman) was a further short neck behind in third.

Among Galileo’s 53 Gr.1 winners, his second highest rated son at stud is Rip Van Winkle who shuttles to Windsor Park Stud, Cambridge from Coolmore, Ireland.
