In 2004, Attraction became the first filly to win both the English and Irish 1,000 Guineas.

She then went on to win the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, her third Group One win in a row and her eighth win in eight starts.

By Efisio, the Mark Johnston trained filly adopts an exciting start to finish front running style.

After eight straight wins, Attraction was beaten two and a half lengths into second by Soviet Star in the Falmouth Stakes (Gp 1) at Newmarket in July and then flopped behind Whipper in the Jacques Le Marois (Gp 1).

Attraction returned to the racecourse at Leopardstown in September in the inaugural running of the Coolmore Fusaichi Pegasus Milton Stakes (Gp 1), where she was again beaten by Soviet Star, this time by half a length.
