During her own broodmare career, Pocahontas produced five stakes winners headed by the champion and good sire Tom Rolfe. She also produced three daughters who, while unable to perform at stakes standard themselves, became stakes producers, among them Wampum.
Sired by 1959 American champion juvenile male Warfare and foaled in England, Wampum never made it to the track and produced only one stakes winner, Fiddlers Fare (by Luthier). However, she has been the most influential of Pocahontas' daughters in the Southern Hemisphere. In Australasia, her key daughter is Get Ready Peggy (by Hello Gorgeous), who produced New Zealand Group II winner The Warrior (by Zabeel) and is the second dam of multiple New Zealand Group II winner Kerry O'Reilly.
Pocahontas' family came to Brazil through Wampum's daughter Imagery (by disqualified 1968 Kentucky Derby winner Dancer's Image), who produced Brazilian Group II winner Dieter Jet (by Tri Jet) and Brazilian Group III winner Makatani (by Vida Mansa). In between those two colts, Imagery produced Imaginary (by multiple English stakes winner St. Chad), dam of Brazilian listed stakes winner Shogun (by 1991 Brazilian Horse of the Year Falcon Jet) and second dam of multiple Uruguayan stakes winner Fantastica Chris.
Imagery's last foal was Swiss Beauty, a 1996 daughter of Falcon Jet who brought the family to Group I status in South America through her son 2008 Joe Owen. A son of Christine's Outlaw, Joe Owen is a two-time winner of the Grande Premio Presidente Da Republica (BRZ-I) at Cidade Jardim. Nice Lady is out of Swiss Beauty's only producing daughter thus far, Lady Beauty (by Argentine Group II winner Spring Halo, a son of 10-time Argentine champion sire Southern Halo), but Swiss Beauty's younger foals include two full sisters to Joe Owen who may yet come up with some nice winners themselves.
Like all female families, Pocahontas' family contains its share of mares that have failed to produce anything worthwhile and have faded into obscurity. The trait worthy of note here is the ability of the stronger branches of this family to adapt and find success when mated to stallions from widely different genetic pools. That kind of flexibility is a rare gift and one likely to find Pocahontas' descendants among the great ladies of widely flung broodmare bands for years to come.
