Sister to Gleneagles and Marvellous makes eagerly awaited debut at the Curragh
Top broodmare You'resothrilling has also produced Happily and Taj Mahal
The latest chapter of You'resothrilling's phenomenal broodmare career is set to take place at the Curragh on Monday, with Aidan O'Brien taking the wraps off Galileo filly Joan Of Arc.
You'resothrilling, a Storm Cat sister to the iron horse Giant's Causeway, is out of the hugely influential Mariah's Storm who also produced Pearling, the dam of three-time Group 1 winner and Irish National Stud stallion Decorated Knight.
The winner of the 2007 Cherry Hinton Stakes, You'resothrilling has been exclusively mated to Galileo since her retirement, with Marvellous providing her with the perfect start to her paddocks career when winning the Irish 1,000 Guineas.
Marvellous herself enjoyed black type success as a broodmare when the War Front colt Fort Myers won the Star Appeal Stakes at Dundalk last year.
Arguably You'resothrilling's leading offspring came in the form of Gleneagles, winner of the National Stakes at two and English and Irish 2,000 Guineas at three.
Coolmore's young sire has two crops of racing age, of which his best progeny includes July Stakes winner Royal Lytham and Royal Lodge Stakes victor Royal Dornoch.
Happily continued to uphold family honour with wins in the Moyglare Stud Stakes and Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere, while Vatican City was runner-up to Siskin in the Irish 2,000 Guineas this year.
Joan Of Arc is You'resothrilling's seventh foal and the mare produced a filly by Galileo last year. She returned to the champion sire this time around.
In the following race, the Irish Stallion Farms EBF (C&G) Maiden (1.00), the soon-to-be retiring John Oxx will saddle the unraced Golden Horn half-brother to Irish Derby hero Jack Hobbs.
A 200,000gns purchase from Tattersalls December Foal Sale, the colt could be a poignant winner for Willie Carson's Minster Stud following the sad loss of wife Elaine earlier this week.
