A 220,000 gns Tattersalls yearling, Alfred Nobel is the first foal out of the winning mare Glinting Desert. The second dam Dazzling Park was a Group Three winner and second in the Group One Irish Champion Stakes, making her champion three-year-old filly in 1999. The third dam Park Express was herself a champion, winning the Irish Champion Stakes, the Nassau Stakes and the Lancashire Oaks before retiring to the paddocks where she has produced, inter alia, New Approach and Shinko Forest.

Alfred Nobel is inbred 3x4 to Danzig and combines the Danehill and Green Desert branches of that sire line. He is one of Danehill Dancer's 14 stakes winners of the season and his third Group One winner alongside Mastercraftsman and Again.
