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.
