The power of the cross
18 JUNE 2021, RACENEWS
Frankel - by Galileo x Kind (Danehill). Champion and leading sire.
Yesterday’s impressive Gr.1 Ascot Gold Cup winner Subjectivist (Teofilo) and Gr.2 Royal Ascot Ribblesdale Stakes winner Loving Dream (Gleneagles) are proof again of the powerful genetic potency when Galileo and Danehill combine closeup in pedigrees.
Both Subjectivist and Loving Dream are by sons of Galileo out of Danehill Dancer (Danehill) mares - Subjectivist, by unbeaten Gr.1 winning 2YO Teofilo (himself bred on this great ‘nick’) and Loving Dream, by Gr.1 Royal Ascot St James’s Palace Stakes winner and exciting young sire Gleneagles.
Wednesday’s Royal Ascot Gr.1 Prince Of Wales Stakes winner Love (Galileo) and Tuesday’s Gr.1 Royal Ascot St James’s Palace Stakes winner Poetic Flare (Dawn Approach) are other outstanding examples of the mix of this blood which has now produced in excess of 300 stakes winners (62 Gr.1).
The great racehorse Frankel (Galileo) embodies the very best this great cross offers and this leading European sire currently heads the 2021 sire premiership in Great Britain.
Galileo and Danehill Dancer feature as sire and damsire of dual Royal Ascot hero and triple Gr.1 winning miler Circus Maximus, who joins the stallion roster at Windsor Park Stud for 2021.
Circus Maximus is scheduled to arrive from Coolmore Stud, Ireland to Windsor Park Stud in early August where he will stand for a fee of $20,000+gst.
