Group 1 winner Grand Glory (GB) (Olympic Glory {Ire}), who races for Albert Frassetto, John d'Amato and Mike Pietrangelo, will be offered at the upcoming Arqana Breeding Stock Sale from Dec. 4-7. Slated to sell on Dec. 4, the G1 Prix Jean Roment heroine and G1 Prix de Diane third also won the G3 Prix de Flore as a 4-year-old and the G3 Grand Prix de Vichy this term. In her most recent start, the Haras de Bourgeauville-bred was second by a nose in the G1 Prix de l'Opera on Oct. 3.

The daughter of the placed Madonna Lily (Ire) (Daylami {Ire}) was picked up for just €18,000 out of the Arqana October Yearling Sale in 2017. Madonna Lily is a half-sister to GII Canadian S. winner Minakshi (Fr) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}). Grand Glory's stakes-placed second dam Maria de La Luz (GB) (Machiavellian) is a half-sister to Happy Heart (Fr) (Exit to Nowhere), herself the dam of G1 Crown Oaks heroine Arapaho Miss (Aus) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}). Arapaho Miss, in turn, has foaled G1 VRC Oaks victress Miami Bound (NZ) to the cover of Reliable Man (GB).
