A flagship horse for the Dubai-based owners during the 2018 flat season, the Camacho filly won both the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot and the Prix Robert Papin before running a close second in the Group One Prix Morney. She was retired to broodmare duties in September 2019 and this will be her first foal.
“We’re thrilled that this special filly is on foal to Europe’s leading sire,” said Phoenix Thoroughbreds CEO Amer Abdulaziz. “She showed tremendous speed on the track during her career and we’ve seen how that can be a potent weapon when paired with all that Galileo has to offer. We are confident that in time she can become one of the cornerstones of our breeding operation in Europe.”
Originally, purchased by trainer John Quinn at Tattersalls October Yearling Sale in 2017, Signora Cabello is out of winning mare Journalist and a half-sister to winners La Presse, Emirates Girl and Plagiarism. She also hails from the same family as world-class sprinter Kingsgate Native and 1000 Guineas winner Las Meninas.
At the time of her retirement, Quinn said he’d be “hopeful she’d breed a good one” and she has every chance of doing that at the first time of asking now pregnant Coolmore’s perennial champion stallion.
