Started out in the States for Eoin Harty, improving out of all recognition on second outing by recording a wide-margin triumph in maiden fillies' event over 7f at Saratoga; made a seamless leap into Grade 1 company on her final couple of starts as juvenile, staying on from an unpromising position to finish second in the Oak Leaf Stakes over 1m at Santa Anita before finding only Tempera too strong for her in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies at Belmont Park in the autumn; came into her own at three and bagged the Moonshell Mile for Saeed bin Suroor in Dubai in a first-time visor on her reappearance, and exacted her revenge over Tempera under an attacking Frankie Dettori ride in the UAE Oaks in April 2002, continued to hit the headlines throughout that year with an allowance win at Saratoga followed by a pair of Grade 1 successes over 1m1f at Belmont in the Gazelle Handicap and Beldame Stakes; brought the curtain down on a terrific career with a highly respectable third behind Azeri in the Breeders' Cup Distaff at Arlington in October 2002; won from 7f-1m1f on a fast surface; wore headgear
