Tapestry Latest Gr1 Alumni Of Illustrious Family
Overnight's Gr1 Yorkshire Oaks heroine Tapestry is truly bred in the purple: by redoubtable sire Galileo whose star burns ever brighter, her dam Rumplestiltskin was European Champion 2YO following wins in the Gr1 Moyglare Stakes & France's Gr1 Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp. Her dam, a half-sister to multiple Gr1-winning champion sire Kingmambo, is in turn out of global champion race mare Miesque, whose 1988 Breeders' Cup Mile win is below. This extraordinary family could soon have yet another Gr1 graduate to add to the fairy story. Tapestry's younger 2YO full-brother John F Kennedy is 14/1 for the Epsom Derby and 16/1 for England's 2,000 Guinea after blitzing his rivals at his second start earlier this month in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Maiden at the Curragh.
