A full sister to the 2012 Oaks winner Was raised a world-record figure for a yearling filly when it sold at auction for £5.25m at Tattersalls.
The daughter of Galileo out of Alluring Park was sold by Lodge Park Stud to Mandore International on behalf of Sheikh Joaan's Al Shaqab Racing at a record fee for a horse sold at European auction.
Mandore International's Nicolas de Watrigant said: "We bought her sister last year and we think she could be special." The filly will be trained in France by André Fabre.
