Impressive Oscula is new winner for Galileo Gold

Classic winner Galileo Gold added another winner to his burgeoning stud record on Monday thanks to the fluent success of Oscula for George Boughey at Brighton.


Backing up quickly following a promising third on debut at Kempton Park last week, Oscula was always in control and strode clear for a length-and-three-quarters success.


Oscula was bred by Padraig Williams out of Bisous Y Besos, a Big Bad Bob half-sister to the Listed-placed Coeur d'Amour. She was purchased as a yearling by Michael Aguiar and races for Nick Bradley Racing 20 and George Boughey.


Galileo Gold won five races including the Group 2 Vintage Stakes as a two-year-old and the Group 1 2,000 Guineas and St. James's Palace Stakes at three.


He was the leading first-crop sire by average at the recent Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale in Doncaster on a figure of £68,875 - his stock included a colt out of York Express, for whom Armando Duarte went to a joint sale-topping £210,000 on behalf of Ling Bloodstock.


Galileo Gold stands for €5,000.
