The Aga Khan's Irish-bred 3YO filly Shalanaya (Lomitas-Shalamantika, by Nashwan) scored a 1.5-length victory against older rivals in the €250,000 (A$425,000) Gr1 Prix de l'Opera (2000m) for fillies & mares at Longchamp. Shalanaya (ridden by Maxime Guyon for trainer Mikel Delzanles) defeated fellow Irish-bred 3YO filly Board Meeting (Anabaa-Bright Moon, by Alysheba) & UK-bred 3YO filly Midday (Oasis Dream-Midsummer, by Kingmambo).
