Atishu's owners will be hoping the star middle-distance mare adds to her value at her next two starts before she is offered for sale later in the year.

Magic Millions on Thursday confirmed that the six-year-old daughter of Savabeel was an entry for the National Broodmare Sale in May on the Gold Coast.

The two-time Group 1 winner will be one of the highest-profile mares offered in the race fillies and mares section of the catalogue with a start in the $3 million Group 1 Australian Cup and riches at The Championships on the cards before the National Sale.

"She loves Flemington and her next start will be there in the Australian Cup and then she will head to either the Queen of the Turf or Queen Elizabeth Stakes in Sydney," Go Racing's Albert Bosma said.

"The most important thing is, considering the form she is racing in, she will be able to head to the breeding barn with plenty in reserve (and) that is important to us.

"She's one of those mares that has kept getting better and better and right now she would be at the peak of her powers."

Out of the No Excuse Needed mare Posy, Atishu took her record to 10 wins from 39 starts when she rounded out her Australian Cup preparations with victory in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes at Flemington on March 2.
