Maybe ended the 2011 campaign as Europe’s joint-champion two-year-old following a superb unbeaten campaign that culminated with victory in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh. She ended the following season as a forgotten champion having failed to win in her four 2012 outings – all of which came in Group 1 contests.
The Galileo filly made an impressive juvenile debut with a ready success in a Navan maiden in May 2011 and beat the colts with an emphatic win in the Listed Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot the following month.
She followed up a neck verdict in a Group 3 race at Leopardstown and a comfortable success in the Group 2 Debutante Stakes at the Curragh before rounding off her season with her Moyglare Stud Stakes victory.
Following such an impressive start to her career, Maybe was sent off a red-hot favourite on her seasonal return in the QIPCO 1000 Guineas at Newmarket on May 6, when she ran well to take third behind her less-fancied stablemate Homecoming Queen.
On her next start she was one of five runners for trainer Aidan O’Brien in the Investec Oaks on June 1, and despite the step up to a mile and a half, she ran a solid race to finish fifth behind stablemate Was.
But she regressed in each of her next two starts, firstly when managing no better than fifth behind Giofra in the Etihad Airways Falmouth Stakes and then when beating only three of her ten rivals in the Coolmore Fusaichi Pegasus Matron Stakes. She did not run again in 2013 and has now been retired to stud as a broodmare.
