Chicquita, winner of last season's Irish Oaks, was sold to Peter and Ross Doyle Bloodstock for 6million euro at the Goffs November Sale in Ireland.

The three-year-old filly formed part of Australian owner-breeder Paul Makin's wholesale dispersal of his entire stock.

Chicquita won the Irish Oaks at the Curragh by half a length in July and also finished second to Arc heroine Treve in the French equivalent a month earlier.

Also amongst the Makin consignment was the 2009 July Cup winner Fleeting Spirit, who is in foal to Galileo and fetched €1.1m.

Song, the first mare in foal to Frankel on sale in Europe, went to John Egan for €1m.
