Six-Time Stakes Winner Galilean Retired / Friday, October 1, 2021

Galilean and jockey Flavien Prat win the $200,000 California Cup Derby.

Late September marked the end of the racing career for Galilean, a Cal-bred champion and six-time stakes winner for West Point, Denise Barker and William Sandbrook. Stud plans will be announced soon for the 5-year-old son of Uncle Mo.

The sale topper at the Barretts spring sale of 2-year-olds in training in 2018, Galilean won stakes as a 2- and 3-year-old for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer and as a 4-year-old for trainer John Sadler.

In 2020, Galilean earned champion California-bred older male honors for a versatile campaign that saw him win the Soi Phet Stakes at a mile on dirt, the California Dreamin’ Stakes at a mile and a sixteenth on turf, and the California Flag Handicap at 5 1/2 furlongs on the grass.

“Just a fun, honest horse to have in the barn,” West Point CEO Terry Finley said.
