Pennsylvania-bred JOYANT (Wootton Bassett {GB}) gets her career started here for owner/breeder Erdenheim Farm and trainer Arnaud Delacour. The filly's dam Cintra (Ire) (Camacho {GB}), an unraced daughter of European Broodmare of the Year Bordighera (Alysheba), was purchased by James Wigan's London Thoroughbred Services for 420,000gns ($570,730) on behalf of Erdenheim at the 2019 Tattersalls December Mare Sale and she produced a Kingman (GB) filly the following spring, visiting this outstanding stallion prior to her export. The listed-placed Bordighera was the dam of nine winners from 11 to race, including the globetrotting three-time Group 1 winner Grandera (Grand Lodge)–also placed at the highest level in France and Australia–as well as multiple champion George Washington (Ire) (Danehill), whose four Group 1 victories included the 2006 G1 Stan James (English) 2000 Guineas; and SW Sun Central (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). Another of Bordighera's daughters, the Group 3-placed Wonderstruck (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), was responsible for Ready To Venture (GB) (Kingman {GB}), victorious in last year's GIII Seaway S. at Woodbine.
