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.
