A high-class performer at two, three and four years of age, Haras de Montaigu stallion Prince Gibraltar (by Rock Of Gibraltar) is by the sire of Group 1-siring stallions Mount Nelson and Society Rock, and he had 52 foals in his first crop.
Timeform rated him 116 at two, 124 at three and 125 at four, his top-level wins came in the 10-furlong Criterium de Saint-Cloud and 12-furlong Grosser Preis von Baden, and his string of notable placings included third to The Grey Gatsby in the Group 1 Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby).
He is a full-brother to listed scorer Princess Gibraltar, his dam is five-time winner Princess Sofia (by Pennekamp), and that mare’s siblings include stakes winner and notable broodmare Queen Catherine (by Machiavellian) – the dam of Group 3 winner and Group 1 Oaks d’Italia runner-up Lady Catherine (by Bering) who is, in turn, the grandam of Group 2 Duchess of Cambridge Stakes heroine and Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes runner-up llluminate (by Zoffany).
Third dam Princess Karenda (by Gummo) won the Grade 1 Hollywood Oaks and Grade 1 Santa Margarita Invitational Handicap, and that mare’s siblings include Big Puddles (by Delta Judge), the Grade 3-winning dam of Grade 1-placed Grade 2 scorer and somewhat successful sire Thunder Puddles (by Speak John).
Two-year-old winners for Prince Gibraltar are likely to come late in the season and although he may get the occasional miler, he promises to get his best results in the middle-distance and staying divisions.
