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.
