With only 24 in his first crop, Intrinsic faces an uphill battle to become a sire of note, but this Hedgeholme Stud resident is related to a current freshman stallion who already has a pattern winner in his first juveniles, and if he does get any stakes and pattern winners then he certainly won’t be the first non-stakes winner to do so.
He was rated 114 by Timeform – as was his Group 1-placed, pattern winning dam Infallible (by Pivotal) – he was a lightly-raced winner of the Stewards’ Cup, and his best offspring are likely to be sprinters and milers.
He is a half-brother to Group 3 Prix de Flore scorer Intimation (by Dubawi) and to multiple Group 1-placed, dual Group 2 Summer Mile Stakes winner Mutakayyef (by Sea The Stars), while his dam’s siblings include Penchant (by Kyllachy), who is the dam of Garswood (by Dutch Art) Group 1-winning sprinter and a blacktype sire with his first juveniles.
Grandam Irresistible (by Cadeaux Genereux) won the Listed Kilvington Stakes and was runner-up in the Group 3 Brownstown Stakes, and that mare is a half-sister to several blacktype producers. Those talented relations include Group 3 Prix du Calvados winner and Group 2 Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte runner-up Queen Bee (by Le Havre), dual pattern-placed stakes winner Eternally (by Dutch Art), and the colts Parliament Square (by Acclamation) and True Mason (by Mayson), both of whom have finished third in the Group 1 Prix Morny.
If you go back another generation then you find that the fourth dam of Intrinsic is the standout US filly Some Romance (by Fappiano), a winner of both the Grade 1 Frizette Stakes and Grade 1 Matron Stakes and whose blacktype placings included the Grade 1 Santa Anita Oaks, Grade 1 Monmouth Oaks, and Grade 1 Las Virgenes Stakes.
