Stacelita is out of a Listed-winning mare, herself a half sister to two stakes winners by Monsun in Listed winner Soudaine and dual Group Two winner and winning hurdler Simoun.

Monsun, the sire of Manduro, Schiaparelli and Le Miracle, didn't have a European Group One winner last year, with dual Group Two winner Getaway his top earner. He has 20 winners from 54 runners thus far this season. This win propels him past Desert Prince as leading German-based sire this year.
