A first-crop son of top miler Henrythenavigator (by Kingmambo), Pedro The Great stands at Haras de la Haie Neuve in France, he is out of the Group 3 Prestige Stakes winner Glatisant (by Rainbow Quest) and that makes him a half-brother to Group 1 2000 Guineas scorer and Group 1 sire Footstepsinthesand (by Giant's Causeway), a member of the Coolmore team.
His siblings also include Frappe (by Inchinor), who is the winning dam of Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes winner Thakafaat (by Unfuwain), of classic-placed Grade 1 E P Taylor Stakes heroine Curvy (by Galileo) and of Group 1 Irish 2000 Guineas winner and current freshman sire Power (by Oasis Dream), who is also at Coolmore.
Footstepsinthesand's 48 stakes winners include five who have won at the highest level: Chachamaidee, Infiltrada, Sand Bijou, Shamalgan, and Steinbeck (aka Pure Champion) - and his most recent blacktype winners include the Group 2 scorers Hesham and Kaspersky.
Power's first crop has already yielded a double-digit tally of winners, headed by the Group 3 Anglesey Stakes winner, Group 2 Railway Stakes runner-up and Group 1 Prix Morny third Peace Envoy. They also include the Group 3 Premio Primi Passi runner-up Biz Power and listed-placed La Force.
Glatisant is a daughter of the Group 2 Nassau Stakes winner Dancing Rocks (by Green Dancer), who is, in turn, out of the Premio Lydia Tesio winner Croda Rossa (by Grey Sovereign). She is a half-sister to the pattern-placed stakes winners Gai Bulga (by Kris) and Rockerlong (by Deploy) and also to three mares who achieved some notable results at stud.
Rainbow Goddess (by Rainbow Quest) is the dam of Mahler (by Galileo), the classic and Melbourne Cup-placed pattern winner getting promising results with his early National Hunt runners. Pippas Song (by Reference Point) is the dam of two listed scorers and she is the grandam of US Grade 2 scorer Lady Lara (by Excellent Art).
The third sister is Council Rock (by General Assembly) and she is the dam of the juvenile filly champion Superstar Leo (by College Chapel), who won the Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes and was runner-up in both the Group 1 Prix de l'Abbaye de Longchamp and Group 1 Phoenix Stakes.
The mare is also the grandam of Australian Group 1 scorer December Draw (by Medecis), of the pattern-winning sprinter Enticing (by Pivotal) and of Group 2-placed Group 3 Gallinule Stakes scorer Alexander Pope (by Danehill Dancer).
Pedro The Great is a half-brother to a notably successful stallion and to the dam of a leading freshman sire, which augurs well for his own prospects of getting blacktype horses and high-class handicappers.
PEDRO THE GREAT (USA) – b.2010 – Henrythenavigator – Glatisant, 2 wins inc Phoenix Stakes (Gr1). Sire in France. First foals in 2015.
