HEIDER FAMILY STABLES GALLINULE STAKES (GROUP 3)
This race is named after the Irish-based sire Gallinule who became the first English champion sire to spend his entire stud career in Ireland. His progeny included the ‘mare of the century’ Pretty Polly and six Irish Derby winners in seven years.
The Gallinule was restricted to three-year-olds from its first running in 1947 until 1992. From 1994 until 2004 older horses were eligible to compete in the race but since then it has been restricted to the classic generation. After being run as a Group 2 for a period, the Gallinule has held Group 3 status since 1998 and it has been held at the Curragh every year apart from the 2001 and 2002 runnings which were staged at Leopardstown.
Latrobe, who finished second to Platinum Warrior in the 2018 race, became the first Irish Derby winner to contest the Gallinule since Assert all the way back in 1982. The subsequent Cox Plate winner Adelaide, the now Australian-based Group 1 winner Homesman, the English St Leger hero Leading Light are notable recent winners of the race while Brief Truce won the Gallinule before landing the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.
