This champion filly was named for a poisonous flower, but she had a sweet scent as far as her connections were concerned. She was a successful broodmare whose foals include a champion sire, but all of her important foals had their greatest successes outside North America. Name her.

I was so sure it was Bloodroot, but perhaps it's Sacahuista instead?

Pot-8-os, you have found the right garden! 1987 American champion 3-year-old filly Sacahuista was named after a plant of the lily family which has poisonous flowers and seeds. Her son Hussonet was a seven-time champion sire in Chile, while another son, Ekraar, was a Group I winner in Italy. Sacahuista's daughter Balenciaga produced a French stakes winner and is the second dam of a Chilean champion and the third dam of an Argentine Group I winner.
