Quest For Peace (by Galileo) is being aimed primarily at the National Hunt sector and so it will likely be 2019/2020 before any of his progeny appear on the track. He covered 51 mares in his first season, only two of his first foals were offered at auction and one of them made €3,400 in Goffs.
He was a listed race winner in Ireland, a dual pattern scorer in England, but out of luck in a period of just over a year spent racing in Australia – a close fifth to Dunaden in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup was his best performance there.
The first foal out of juvenile winner Play Misty For Me (by Danehill Dancer), he is out of a half-sister to two blacktype earners and his grandam, Miss Champagne (by Bering), is an unraced full-sister to the Group 3 Prix Eclipse scorer Stella Berine. That talented filly is the grandam of the seven-furlong Australian Group 2 winner Cradle Me (by Easy Rocking).
His third dam, Beaujolaise (by Thatching), also won the Group 3 Prix Eclipse, she was out of the Listed Prix du Bois scorer Benthose (by Dapper Dan), and the other blacktype winners who descend from that older mare include the speedy mother and daughter pair Comete (by Jeune Homme) and Chica Loca (by American Post).
