Following her win in the Grand Prix de Vichy (G3), Grand Glory  went on to take the Darley Prix Jean Romanet (G1) last month. Offered from Haras de Bourgeauville in 2017, she was bought by Marco Bozzi for €18,000 (US$21,179).

He was bought for €25,000 ($31,790) by Ecurie au Trieux from Elevage de Tourgeville in 2014.
