Of those winners, 5 are closely related to One More Tequila. You can see in her pedigree that it is filled with black type and Group 1 winners and notably international Group 1 winners.
One More Tequila is closely related to MARIELLA who was a Group 1 winning racehorse. She won at a distance of up to 2800m and was also the top 3 year old filly in Italy. MAROTTA was also a champion 3 year old racehorse in Italy, winning 3 times and at Group 1 level in France. In her family, she also has one of the best Sire staying horses in Europe namely, SAGARO. He had 10 wins up to 4000m and won 5 Group 1’s and more importantly the 3 time winner of the Group 1 Royal Ascot Gold Cup. Sagaro was an outstanding stayer in history. No other horse has ever won this race 3 times. (The Royal Ascot Gold Cup is similar to the Melbourne Cup).

Peter Moody has commented, “I am [excited]. I am a bit tentative about it. I have to learn to get back out there again and get on the tools again, but not too much has changed,” he said. “There is no doubt I’ll be a better trainer this time around because I’m going to be more relaxed and be able to manage my time much better, and I’ll have a smaller team.”
