International titan Galileo once again asserted his dominance at Royal Ascot, recording five winners at the meeting, led by Order of St George in the Group 1 Gold Cup in Honor of the Queen’s 90th Birthday.  

Galileo also took the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes with Kinema, the Queen's Vase with Sword Fighter, the Chesham Stakes with Churchill, and the Wolferton with Sir Isaac Newton. He is also the broodmare sire of Group 1 St. James’s Palace winner Galileo Gold and Hardwicke Stakes winner Dartmouth.

Galileo, standing at Coolmore’s Irish headquarters, is the sire of 10 champions, including unbeaten two-time European Horse of the Year and current freshman sire Frankel. His top runners to come to the U.S. include Breeders’ Cup Turf winners Found and Magician.

In addition to Galileo and Scat Daddy, the only other sire with multiple winners at Royal Ascot was the Irish-based Kodiac, represented by Group 2 Norfolk Stakes winner Prince Of Lir and Windsor Castle winner Ardad.
