Decorated Knight 5 ch c Galileo - Pearling
Trained Roger Varian at two and three, winning two of his six races both over eight furlongs. He stepped up well last year. After a prep over a mile at Ascot he was unlucky not to be unbeaten in his final 3 starts. having won the Festival Stakes at Goodwood, he got caught on the line in the Diomed stakes (G3) at Epsom, before winning the Meld Stakes (G3) in Ireland in taking fashion. He has strengthened well since then and could be heading to Dubai in March. His dam Pearling is out of the ten race winner Mariah’s Storm also the dam of Giant’s Causeway and You’resothrilling, who has since produced Gleneagles and two other black type horses.
