Trainer Cristianne Head-Maarek said, "I was convinced that she would win on her debut and I was disappointed in the Prix des Marettes where we did not understand what was asked of her. This did not diminish the respect that I have for her. Then I ran her over 7 furlongs at Chantilly to avoid any travel, but I knew that the distance was too short for her. I asked the Prince (owner Khalid Abdullah, on the left in the photo) to run her in this Fillies' Criterium and was convinced that she had a leading chance. She is bred to stay further and will now have a break. You will see her next year."
