She then returned to Poland for a short period of time, and returned to the US in 2009. As of 2009, Pianissima had produced six foals, five by embryo transfer, and one by natural birth. Her offspring have sold well by the current price standard of the Arabian industry, including 175.000€ ($214,237.41 USD) at the Pride of Poland sale.
