So happy that they gave her an unique name.

Any chance at all they keep/retain interest in her to race and for their own broodmare band?

I think they've stated from the beginning that's the plan for this filly.

See this is the name (or the kind of name) I was hoping they'd give Pharoah's full sister but no... they went with American Cleopatra instead... (Yes I'm still bitter)
A filly named Ruffian...

Sounds like this one is Coolmore owned (guessing by pedigree). Perhaps the name was reserved and they couldn't use it anyway.

Don't think it's a coincidence that Coolmore gets to have horses named after all these important historical figures.

This filly is owned by Flaxman Holdings, the Niarchos family.

Coolmore and Flaxman Holdings co-own the 2yo full brother Diodorus (Greek historian), wouldn't be surprised if they also co-own this foal.

They were not listed as co-breeders, but they may be partners in her racing career. Guess we'll see in a couple of years. Coolmore and Flaxman partnering is nothing new.

In fact, Coolmore had a 3yo Galileo filly named Queen Nefertiti last year, sent to US, probably in foal to War Front now!

Imagine the naming opportunities if she went to American Pharoah though ;)

Queen Nefertiti was the wife of the Pharaoh and her stepson was Tutankhamun (King Tut), so that would be an option for a colt foal :D

I really do want a Pharoah filly to be called Hatshepsut. But she would have to be exceptional in breeding and talent :p
