His sire is Zacinto who was trained by Sir Michael Stoute out of his Newmarket Stables in England, for Prince Khalid Bin Abdullah, by Dansili, the bay won three races, breaking it's maiden status during the horses’ juvenile campaign. The following season Zacinto won the 2009 Group 2 Celebration Mile, defeating Ordnance Row on protest plus the Listed Blue Square Premier (registered as: Thoroughbred Stakes) with both races held at Goodwood. Following those victories Zacinto was sent to Ascot to contest the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, ridden by Ryan Moore, the combination ended up in the runners up stall only a length-and-a-quarter behind Rip Van Winkle collecting a valuable placing at the elite level.
