Our stallions performances are blossoming like spring, starting with a Listed 1-2 for our sires GALILEO GOLD and MEHMAS. GALILEO GOLD's four-year-old GOLDANA posted a gutsy performance to land the Listed Heritage Stakes on April, 10 at Leopardstown, Ireland, opening the mark for the new season after her Group 3 success last year for breeder Patrick Grogan.

Stewart, while SIR YOSHI was back second by half a length for breeder Tally-Ho Stud. Three-year-old HEART OF DARKNESS also broke is maiden tag on April,13 at Dundalk, Ireland on his second start only, the Llety Farms-bred leading the way for an international triple of winners in a day. A few hours later, three-year-old BURIC DE L’ALGUER was ledding the field over 1,800 meters at Chilivani, Italy, while CHORLTON LANE triumphed on the other side of the world at Bendigo Racecourse, Australia. Last scorer of the week was courtesy of three-year-old BELLARCHI who secured a fourth career-victory for breeder Con Marnane on April, 9 at Southwel, UK.
