A £13,000 DBS yearling, Hearts Of Fire is out of a winning half sister to four winners and two black type performers, themselves out of a winning half sister to American Grade One winner Spanish Fern. The third dam Chain Store is an unraced own sister to Al Bahathri, Group One winner and the dam of Haafhd.

Hearts Of Fire is one of two winners, from 16 runners, for freshman sire Firebreak, who becomes the first member of his crop to register a Group One winner. This win moves the Bearstone Stud resident to sixth place on the first crop sires' table.
