Do relations to a class work with the classes children?

I do have a 1:1 relation between a class Auction and a class Product.

static $has_one = array("product"=>"Product")

I intend to subclass Product for many different product categories, eg Shoe extends Product, Belt extends Product.
Would I have to define a new relation if I want a relation between Auction and Shoe?

No you won't have to create a new relation. If shoe is a subclass of product then shoe is still a product and has a product record. So should work fine.
