Date of Birth: 25 Jan 2020
Sire: Galiway (GB)
Dam: Delicate Kate (Ire)
Dam Sire: Country Reel (USA)
This attractive foal is being offered by Frederique Siegl's stud which is located near Moulins in the Auvergne region of France, a 2 ½-hour drive south of Paris. Set in idyllic rural surroundings, the farm has proved to be a perfect place to rear foals in recent years and is where M. Siegl tends to his seven thoroughbred broodmares. The stud is currently represented by seven horses in training.
This Galiway colt was an early foal, being born on January 25th, and is already developing into a fine specimen. He is out of the unraced Country Reel mare Delicate Kate, who has previously produced foals by Rail Link and Martinborough.
Delicate Kate is from a family that can be traced back to numerous pattern winners, such as the Grp-2 Prix Hubert de Chaudenay winner Justice and the Grp-3 Prix de Lutece victor Mardonius.
Her sire Country Reel won the Grp-2 Gimcrack Stakes as a two-year-old and later raced for Godolphin, before retiring to stallion duties. He has developed into an accomplished broodmare sire, with his daughters having produced the Grp-3 placed Dr Win Win and the Listed-placed Calypso Song amongst numerous individual winners.
The sire of this colt, Galiway, is a regally-bred son of the great Galileo, who won in Listed company and was Group-placed at both two and three, from just a handful of starts.
He retired to Haras de Colleville in 2016 and his first crop runners emerged on racecourses in 2019. They created an excellent impression as a group, as included amongst their number was the Grp-3 Prix la Rochette winner Kenway, the Listed-placed Galova and Wanaway, who won a Listed race in March prior to the disruption of racing in France.
Galiway seems destined to take high-rank as a stallion based on the excellent results of that first crop, which was conceived at a covering fee of just €3,000. That figure more than tripled ahead of the 2020 covering season, as the sire's reputation has soared, and it remains an excellent time to invest in his progeny.
This good-looking and athletic colt has an exciting future and is sure to attract plenty of interest. Please get in touch for more details.
