FOUR-TIME Group 1 winner Gleneagles' first foal arrived earlier this month when a bay filly was born at Redpender Stud in County Kilkenny.
The new arrival is out of the winning Rock Of Gibraltar mare Street Style, making her a half-sister to Group 3 winner Panama Hat.
Jimmy Murphy of Redpender Stud said: "I'm delighted with the Gleneagles filly out of Street Style. She has loads of bone, quality and size. I'm a big fan of Gleneagles, I've another mare due and will be using him again this year."
Gleneagles, a five-year-old son of Galileo who is one of two Classic winners out of the Storm Cat mare You'resothrilling, was trained by Aidan O'Brien to win seven races including the National Stakes, 2,000 Guineas, Irish 2,000 Guineas and St James's Palace Stakes at the highest level.
He stood his first season at Coolmore Stud last year at a fee of €60,000 and will stand the coming breeding season at €40,000.
