Yeomanstown Stud, which stands Gutaifan, had their first foal by the son of Dark Angel arrive on Tuesday.
A grey filly she was bred by Guy and Robert O'Callaghan out of the Desert Style mare Dixiedoodledandy, a half-sister to Group 2 scorer Green Door.
Gutaifan was trained by Richard Hannon to win four races as a two-year-old including the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin and the Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes.
Retired to stud at the end of his juvenile season, the four-year-old was the busiest of 2016's new intake of sires in Britain and Ireland having covered a book of 203 mares in his debut season at the County Kildare operation.
He will stand the 2017 breeding season at a fee of €10,000.
