Winning trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre added, "We decided to supplement her in this race after her last serious piece of work over Chantilly racecourse, which was sumptuous. I was a bit worried 400 meters out though as she could not find the gap but her class made it look easy to overcome this."
Owner and breeder His Highness the Aga Khan added, "She could be very good. We have always held her in very high esteem. It is not a normal process but the trainer felt she would be better going straight to a Group 1 from a maiden because she is quite a stressed filly. Petite Etoile bred only one daughter, Zahra, and it's amazing to see through one daughter of a great race mare that she can continue to produce great race horses."
