Know More’s juvenile form may offer little encouragement for the Kentucky Derby, but he is bred to get the distance.
His sire, Lion Heart, held on for a clear second in the 2004 Run for the Roses after setting the early pace. In his trademark front-running style, Lion Heart also won the Hollywood Futurity and Haskell, and was just nailed late in the Blue Grass.
Exported to Turkey in early 2010, Lion Heart has since made a big splash with his runners. That same year, his son Line of David captured the Arkansas Derby; Dangerous Midge took the Breeders' Cup Turf; and Kantharos rolled through a perfect juvenile season before suffering a career-ending injury. Lion Heart had another banner year in 2012, with Super Derby winner Bourbon Courage and several promising juveniles from his final North American crop -- including Kentucky Jockey Club winner Uncaptured, one of the early Kentucky Derby favorites; Falling Sky; Purple Egg; and the filly Touch Magic.
Know More is out of Seattle Qui, a daughter of 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. She is also the dam of juvenile stakes winner and Grade 2-placed Classical Slew, a son of the speedy Bernstein. The broodmare is out of a mare by 1979 Kentucky Derby winner and 1980 Horse of the Year Spectacular Bid and counts German highweighted mare Que Belle as a half-sister.
This is a classy female family with plenty of stamina influences.
