So happy that they gave her an unique name.

Summer Wind picks pretty lame names as a general rule. JMHO.

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)

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
