Superstar mare Annie Power has given birth to her first foal by Europe's 10 time champion Sire Galileo. The newest member of the Coolmore roster has not been decided on with whether it will turn out to be a horse for the flats or the jumps but it truly is an exciting day for the sport.

The newborn animal arrived into the Coolmore stables on Tuesday morning and was released into the world through their social media platform on Twitter

Annie Power is highly known in the world on national hunt racing for good and bad reasons but for the most part was one of the best mares of her generation, but she started her racing career under Jim Bolger where she won her first two bumper contests.

The mare was then sent to Willie Mullins yard by her owner Rich Ricci where she picked up from where she left off winning another bumper and going on to be one of the best hurdle horses in the sport.

Her biggest achievements came when she won five Group 1 contests across both England and Ireland with her best performance coming in the 2016 Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival when she went on to land the spoils.

She followed this up just a month later where she went on to land another Grade 1 at Aintree during the Grand National festival, seeing off a strong field of runners including My Tent Or Yours and Nicholls Canyon.

She landed that Aintree hurdle by a clear 18 lengths and saw her Racing Post Rating go to the highest she had ever been in her career at 170. This was the last ever time she was seen on a racecourse.

The daughter of Shirocco was best well known for one of the biggest talking points and arguably most memorable moments at the Cheltenham festival during the last 10 years when she fell at the last flight in the 2015 Mares Hurdle.

Annie Power was clear of the field by some margin and only needing to negotiate the last hurdle when she jumped the shadow and brought her and jockey Ruby Walsh to the floor.

It is seen as one of the most corrupt moments in horse racing history as it saved bookmakers millions and some establishments from even going out of business.

The now retired 11 year old has gone into breeding and as of Tuesday has produced her first foal with Galileo and this comes after Rich Ricci, when he still owned the mare, sent her to breed with Camelot.

Her first attempt at mating did not go to plan as she suffered a miscarriage and lost the foal, this is when Ricci sold her to Coolmore and to their fortune she became pregnant at the first time of asking and produced a healthy colt.

Rich Ricci still holds a share in this new foal as part of the deal of Annie Power going to Coolmore.

Galileo is one of the best sources for breeding race horses, with the majority coming over the flat and last year he over took his father Sadler's Wells' Group/Grade 1 winners by landing his 74th black type win as a Sire.
