Paco Boy’s Exciting Weekend Continues!

Having just come back to earth on Sunday after Galileo Gold’s success in the 2,000 Guineas, team Highclere were thrilled to see another Paco Boy called Chicadoro put in a terrific performance to finish 2nd in the Pretty Polly Stakes, which is known as one of the first Oaks Trials. Chicadoro looks like a big improver as this was only her 3rd start so she will undoubtedly be contending in Group company this season.

Classic Success for Resident Paco Boy!

This weekend saw Paco Boy become a classic producing sire in only his 2nd crop as Al Shaqab owned Galileo Gold stormed to victory in the 2,000 Guineas. Bred by Highclere Stud’s previous stud manager Brian O’Rourke, Galileo Gold is the first foal out of Galileo mare Galicuix, a twice-raced half-sister to last year’s King’s Stand Stakes and Prix de l’Abbaye hero Goldream. After foaling the colt, Galicuix was again covered by Paco Boy and the resulting progeny topped last year’s DBS Premier Yearling Sale when bought by Tony Nerses for £280,000. Subsequently named Choumicha she is a stablemate of Galileo Gold at Palmer’s Kremlin Cottage Stables in Newmarket.

Galileo Gold is now 2/1 for the Gr.1 St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, but connections are questioning whether a trip to Epsom for the 2016 Investec Derby should be considered! Galileo Gold
