La Troienne

La Troienne (1926–1954) was one of the most famous and influential Thoroughbred broodmares in twentieth century America.

She produced 10 winners including two Hall of Fame inductees while at stud and her daughters in turn produced many notable offspring.

Designated as the taproot of family 1-x, recent matrilineal descendants include 2003 Horse of the Year Mineshaft and Kentucky Derby winners Smarty Jones (2004) and Super Saver (2010).
