In the modern era there has been no more prolific cross for top-class stakes production than that of Galileo line stallions with Danehill line mares.

To date this nick has yielded nearly 70 stakes winners, 20 of the group or grade one winners, including the mighty Frankel, as well as such stars as Teofilo, Intello, The Gurkha, Golden Lilac, Magician and Maybe.

Champion Thoroughbreds have added a horse bred on the famous cross to their roster in the shape of this colt by Galileo’s classic winning son, Cape Blanco, out of a Danehill line mare from the fabulous Eight Carat family.

An undefeated dual group winner at two, Cape Blanco added three more group wins at three, including the Irish Derby (gr. I) and Irish Champion Stakes (gr. I), and at four earned honours as Champion U.S. Turf Horse after capturing the Arlington Million (gr. I), Man o’ War Stakes (gr. I) and Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational (gr. I).

The dam, Diamonds Forever, is a half-sister to Capital Diamond, who earned a classic placing with a third in the New Zealand 1,000 Guineas (gr. I), and who is dam of current two-year-old Gift of Power, winner of the Wellesley Stakes and of the WRC Wakefield Challenge (gr. III).

The granddam, Zabeel’s daughter, Diamond Smile, is a sister to Champion and Australian Derby (gr. I) winner Don Eduardo and to graded stakes winner Peruzzi (dam of stakes winner Lucida).

Diamond Smile is also a three-quarters sister to Champion and classic winner Octagonal; to three-time group one winner Mouawad; to Champion and Australasian Oaks (gr. I) captress Tristalove (dam of group one winner Viking Ruler.

She is also closely related to graded stakes winners Lovetrista and Kempinsky, and stakes winner Diamond Like – all by Danehill line stallions and is granddam of Champion De Beers, and graded winners Forever Loved and Zephyron); to group one winner Shower of Roses; and to stakes winner Antwerp (dam of Viscount, Champion at two and three in Australia).
