Guilt Trip stands at Red River Farms in Louisiana, where he covered 57 mares in his first season and 56 in his second, and although it is unlikely that he will have many runners on the big stage, or in Europe, his pedigree is one that will be familiar to many on this side of the Atlantic.
The son of influential stallion Pulpit (by A.P. Indy) is out of triple winner Mysterieuse Etoile (by Quiet American), a half-sister to stakes winner and minor blacktype sire Salty Sea (by Siberian Express) and of Regrete Rien (by Unbridled's Song), the unplaced dam of Group 2 Superlative Stakes scorer and Group 2 Champagne Stakes third Silver Grecian (by Haafhd).
His grandam, Rose Indien (by Crystal Glitters), won the Listed Hopeful Stakes in England, she is a half-sister to Group 2 Prix du Conseil de Paris winner Majorien (by Machiavellian) and to Group 2 Prix de Malleret winner America (by Arazi), and the latter is the dam of Group 1 Melbourne Cup hero Americain (by Dynaformer).
Their siblings also include Green Field Park (by Akarad), the grandam of Group 1 scorer Elliptique (by New Approach) who took up stallion duties at Haras de Cercy this year.

The only win from five juvenile starts for this chestnut was a six and a half length score in the Grade 1 FrontRunner Stakes over eight and a half furlongs at Santa Anita. He was a Grade 1-placed Grade 2 scorer at three, he is by the sire of Tapit and Lucky Pulpit, and so he represents the powerful A.P. Indy (by Seattle Slew) sire line.
He stands at Hill 'n' Dale Farm in Kentucky, covered 76 mares in his first season and 128 in his second. His stakes-winning dam, Shop Again (by Wild Again), is also responsible for the listed scorer Fierce Boots (by Tiznow), and she is a half-sister to Grade 1 Personal Ensign Stakes winner Miss Shop (by Deputy Minister) and to Trappe Shot (by Tapit).
That Grade 2 True North Handicap winner and Grade 1 Haskell Invitational Stakes runner-up stands at Claiborne Farm, his first crop are three-year-olds and they include the Grade 3 Dwyer Stakes winner Fish Trappe Road, listed scorer Megeve, and Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes runner-up My Man Sam, among other blacktype horses.
Shopping (by Private Account), the triple-winning grandam of Power Broker, is a half-sister to the Grade 1-placed triple Grade 2 scorer Lay Down (by Spectacular Bid) and to I Pass (by Buckpasser), the dual winning dam of Grade 1 Vosburgh Stakes winner and successful sire Mining (by Mr Prospector).
His fourth dam is the talented two-year-old Lady Be Good (by Better Self), and in addition to the top-class filly Discipline (by Princequillo), leading performer Disciplinarian (by Bold Ruler) and Grade 1-placed Grade 3-winning juvenile In Hot Pursuit (by Bold Ruler), her descendants also include a variety of other notable performers.
Those including the classic-placed Group 1 Sussex Stakes winnner Posse (by Forli; sire of Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks heroine Sally Brown), the Grade 1 winner and classic sire Wavering Monarch (by Majestic Light), and the European Group 1 stars Polish Precedent (by Danzig), Zilzal (by Nureyev), who also sired winners at the highest level. It could be interesting to see how Power Broker's progeny might do in Europe.
POWER BROKER (USA) – ch.2010 – Pulpit – Shop Again, 4 wins inc FrontRunner Stakes (Gr1), Indiana Derby (Gr2), Easy Goer Stakes (L), 2nd Haskell Invitational Stakes (Gr1), Oak Tree Juvenile Turf Stakes (L). Sire in USA. First foals in 2015.
