Pedigree

Spirit Of Eagles, the dam of Silvano, is kinbred 3x5x3 Aquila x Stepping Stone x Baby La.

This 3-way link connects to Silvano’s sire Lomitas with Pocahontas, dam of Niniski’s damsire Tom Rolfe. Niniski’s dam Virginia Hills is kinbred 3x4x4x3 Romanella x The Squaw (How) x Dalmary x Your Game.

Silvano’s German-bred top filly Mi Emma is kinbred 4x4 Virginia Hills (by Tom Rolfe) x Quicksand, and 4x4 Virginia Hills x Polyester Girl. King’s Gambit and Kings Cross both are from the Soho Secret female line. Soho Secret’s grandam is kin-linked to Pocahontas. Rudi Rocks is out of a mare by Virginia Hills, by Riverman. Pocahontas kin-links to Riverman’s dam River Lady. The latter is also kin-linked to Aquilla and Baby La.
