فانتاستك لايت وغاليليو وصراعهم المتكرر اعطى للمنافسه بينهم بعد اخر من الاثاره والنديه ، وهنا انتصار غاليليو في سباق الكينغ جورج ومحافظته على سجله خالي من الهزائم وكان ذلك قبل ستة عشر عاماً .
Galileo was then tested against older horses in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot in July. .
The betting suggested that the race would be a match between Galileo (1/2 favourite) and the Godolphin five-year-old Fantastic Light (7-2), who had won Group One races in four different countries. .
Such were the reputations of these two horses that the third choice in the betting, the Prix du Jockey Club winner Anabaa Blue, started at 18/1. .
Kinane took Galileo to the lead two furlongs out, but Frankie Dettori soon brought Fantastic Light to challenge. .
The horses raced together for a few strides before Galileo pulled ahead inside the final furlong and won by two lengths.
Marcus Townend, writing in the Daily Mail, described Galileo as the best horse in Europe and praised his "determination" and "lightning acceleration."
