The outstanding hurdler Quevega delivered her first foal – a filly by Beat Hollow – at the Irish National Stud on May 15.

The new arrival will have her work cut out to emulate her record-breaking mother, who won the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival for six years running between 2009 and 2014.

Quevega, trained by Willie Mullins after being bought from France, finished her career with a impressive record of 16 victories from 24 starts, earning almost £750,000 for her owners the Hammer & Trowel Syndicate.

Aside from Cheltenham, the daughter of Robin Des Champs also excelled at Punchestown, capturing the Grade 1 World Series Hurdle on four occasions.
