Sad Day for racing,

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Galileo: passed away on Saturday...Coolmore

Galileo, the sire of sires who won the 2001 Derby during a glorious Classic campaign and hailed by Aidan O'Brien as a "thoroughbred we will never see the like of again", has died at the age of 23.

Among the 12-time champion sire's offspring, who have produced 91 Group 1 wins between them, is the mighty Frankel and John Magnier said Galileo leaves behind him a legacy of unprecedented success.
