Prolific champion sire Galileo (by Sadler’s Wells) is well established as a leading sire of sires and his growing list of sons of stud includes Galiway, a pattern-placed stakes winner who won two of his five starts. He is bred on the popular Galileo – Danehill (by Danzig) cross, stands at Haras de Colleville, and has 30 registered members of his first crop.
He is out of Group 3 Prix Perth winner and Group 2 Prix d’Astarte runner-up Danzigaway, which makes him a half-brother to Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile third, dual US Grade 2 scorer, and successful blacktype sire Silent Name (by Sunday Silence). Their unraced half-sister Zigarra (by Halling) is the dam of the pattern-placed triple listed scorer Battalion (by Authorized), whereas their dam’s siblings feature Gold Away (by Goldneyev).
He got his best win in the Group 2 Prix du Muguet, he was placed in each of the Prix Jean Prat, Prix Maurice de Gheest, Prix d’Ispahan, and two editions of the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp – all Group 1 – and the standout among his offspring – by a long way – is the multiple Group 1 star Alexander Goldrun.
Danzigaway’s siblings also include Group 3 Prix du Calvados winner Blushing Gleam (by Caerleon) and a mare called Lishaway (by Polish Precedent) – the dam of Group 3 Solario Stakes scorer Foss Way (by Desert Prince).
Galiway’s grandam is, therefore, the stakes-placed Blushing Away (by Blushing Groom), his third dam is the Grade 1-placed, Grade 2 Alcibiades Stakes heroine Sweet Revenge (by Raja Baba), and both his fourth and fifth dams – Away (by Blue Prince) and Golly (by Alorter) – were also stakes winners.
He may get some two-year-old winners in the second half of the season, and his offspring look likely to prove best in the broad seven to 14-furlong range, with some of them potentially staying a bit farther.
