It’s a Filly foaled in the wee hours 2/14/14 - out of Heavens Run (KY) by Leroidesanimaux (BRZ) - Leroi for short.
Leroi’s name is four French-language words combined. Le roi des animaux translates as “The king of the animals.”
Bred by Haras Bage Do Sul at Aceguá, Rio Grande do Sul, he was out of the mare Dissemble and sired by Candy Stripes who also sired Invasor, the horse ranked No.1 in the world for 2006.
In addition to being the sire of this sleepy head, Leroi also sired Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom and now stands at Lanwades Stud in Newmarket, England. She might be the last of the Leroi’s foaled in the United States. But now it’s time for a nap.
