2018 Kirin-Railway Stakes Group 1 November 24 - Ascot

Galaxy Star wins Kirin-Railway Stakes Group 1 $1000,000 at Ascot, 1600m.

High-quality Bob Peters-raced mare Galaxy Star Horseform took her imposing record to ten wins from 13 starts in recording her second Group victory here, capping a great day for connections.

She did not show any early pace and settled near the tail of the 15-horse field. William Pike steered her along the inner from the 600m, got through behind the leading group on straightening, eased deeper and into clear running at the 200m and she then dashed away to win impressively. It was yet another brilliant ride by Pike.

Gatting Horseform travelled nicely back in eighth place on the rails, behind a solid pace. He went through to fifth nearing the home turn, challenged at the 200m and then fought on well for second.

Topweight Material Man Horseform ,who was having his first start since a winning hat-trick in June, raced back in third place, tracking the quick tempo, headed the free-running leader (Wrinkly) and went to the front at the home turn and held on well for a good third.

Perfect Jewel Horseform ,a stablemate of the winner, was last at the home turn, got along the inner on straightening but then struck traffic before running on well for fourth, looking somewhat unlucky. Of the eastern states-trained runners, Mister Sea Wolf did best in fighting on to dead-heat for fifth, Iconoclasm finished eighth, Prized Icon ninth with Peaceful State dropping out to finish last.
