The French trained champ will spend the winter at stud before her connections, owners Gerard and Alain Wertheimer and trainer Freddie Head put a campaign plan into place for her.

"Gerard and Alain Wertheimer have decided to keep her in training after having talked with Freddie Head," said Pierre-Yves Bureau, racing manager for the owners.

"Last year for the first time she was sent to the stud to wind down during the winter and when she came back she very easily won the Prix d'Ispahan before winning at Royal Ascot, an achievement which was a goal of her owners.

"She will return to the stud for a length that hasn't been determined yet, that will be between two and three months, before she comes back to Chantilly, where her 2011 programme will be decided."
