Pat Smullen rides Galileo’s Choice in the Melbourne Cup

Dermot Weld, trainer of Melbourne Cup hopeful Galileo’s Choice has engaged champion Irish jockey Pat Smullen to ride the horse in the big race. Weld certainly knows how to train a Melbourne Cup winner having been successful with Vintage Crop in 1993 and Media Puzzle in 2002. And Smullen had a few rides in the Cup in the last 8 years with his best result being on the Weld’s trained Vinnie Roe who finished second to Makybe Diva in 2004. Galileo’s Choice is currently at $26.00 for the MelbourneCup.
