The Christine Kiernan-owned mare is also the granddam of the Listed-placed Fathsta while her final foal is three-year-old Peg Sayers, a sister to Phoenix Reach who ran once for Patrick Allen last year.

Bred by Mrs P Clarke in Ireland, Carroll's Canyon was out of the unplaced Silver Shark mare Tuna and a half-sister to 1989 Arc hero Carroll House.
