Three-time Breeders’ Cup Mile champion Goldikova gave birth to her first foal Sunday, reported Coolmore Stud in Ireland.
The colt, by top stallion Galileo, was born Sunday at Coolmore’s operation in County Tipperary. French Racing News posted a photo of mare and baby on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.
Coolmore also reported that Goldikova would breed back to Galileo this season.
Goldikova, an 8-year-old daughter of Anabaa, won 17 of her 27 career starts and earned more than $7.1 million. She won 14 Group or Grade 1 events, including the BC Mile three years in a row.
