Interesting pedigree this fella. Perhaps he's not quite a 'freak'but more an extremely judiciously bred individual.

He's got sex balanced crosses of Grey Sovereign and Bletchingly as well as being linebred to Danehill. For good measure there's even a dose of old Sir Ivor.

Throw in a magician as the trainer and you've got the kind of horse that keeps the dream alive.

Mares from the 'Grey Sovereign male line'  is a pattern that appears regularly in very smart horses by stallions that carry the blood of Easy Date (and Snippets ) .   Can be seen in the progeny of stallions like Pins, El Hermando (both deceased)    Not a Single Doubt and Snitzel.

Many of these latter two's highest priced yearlings are out of mares that have Grey Sovereign lower in their pedigrees.
