ALBIGNA built on the great promise shown after she won the Group 2 Airlie Stud Stakes when she gave trainer Jessica Harrington more Group 1 joy, landing the Prix Marcel Boussac. She is from a female line carefully cultivated by Maria Niarchos and her family.

Albigna is the second Group 1 winner for Zoffany (Dansili) and joins Polybius (Oasis Dream) as a stakes-winning offspring of Freedonia (Selkirk), winner of the Group 2 Prix de Pomone at Deauville as a four-year-old when trained by the soon-to-retire John Hammond. She was runner-up in the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at Belmont. Freedonia is the best of four winners from Forest Rain (Caerleon).
