Pharos was the sire of Nearco, one of the most influential sires of the 20th Century. His lines through Nasrullah, Nearctic and Royal Charger are responsible for thoroughbred legends such as Secrtariat, Blushing Groom, Seattle Slew, Mill Reef, Riverman, Northern Dancer, Lyphard, Nijinsky II, Danzig, Nureyev, Sadler's Wells, Montjeu, Galileo, Sir Ivor, Roberto and Sunday Silence.

  • zxswordxz · I believe Bull Hancock was trying to Nearco as Sire but then settle for Nasrullah. Which give him Bold Ruler. However, Big Red X factor came from Princequillo another European horse. Back in the days, a lot of breeding came from Europe. · 1893 days ago
  • Sullivan · I heard the same sword. The Magician of Dormello's Nearco would not be sold for any price, so Hancock settled for his son Nasrullah, which he got in a syndicate. Horse was a nice little Irish stayer. Did not do much running but was great as a sire. · 812 days ago
