A daughter of 2014 Japan Cup (JPN-G1) winner Epiphaneia (by two-time Japanese Horse of the Year Symboli Kris S.), Daring Tact is from the family of Impetuous Lady, Sired by 1954 Preakness Stakes winner Hasty Road out the stakes-winning Argentine import Escocesa II (by Nigromante), Impetuous Lady started only once without displaying the talent of either parent. She made up for her failings as a racer by producing four graded stakes winners, and all four of her producing daughters became graded stakes producers as well.
Both on the track and in the paddocks, the best of the bunch was the Briartic mare Impetuous Gal, whose racing career his its peak with her victory in the 1980 Arlington Matron Handicap (USA-G2). Put to Nijinsky II, she outbred herself with Banker's Lady, a three-time Grade 1 winner and the dam of multiple Grade 2 winner Banker's Gold (by Forty Niner). She also produced Idabel (by Mr. Prospector), winner of the 1990 Ark-La-Tex Handicap (USA-G3).
Daring Danzig, Impetuous Gal's 1990 filly by Danzig, never made it to the track, but she shone as a broodmare, producing 1999 Super Derby (USA-G1) winner Ecton Park (by Forty Niner) and Japanese Group 3 winners Pit Fighter (by Pulpit) and Daring Heart (by Sunday Silence). Daring Heart's daughter Daring Bird (by King Kamehameha) continued the alternation between good race mares and mares who failed to demonstrate talent on the track, for she made only one unplaced start before getting her broodmare career off to the best possible start with Daring Tact as her first foal. She has since produced full sisters to the likely champion in 2018 and 2019.
Impetuous Lady's family has never gotten quite the attention some other notable producing families have received, but it has also done well in the United States and Europe, accounting for 2014 Del Mar Oaks (USA-G1) winner Personal Diary, 2012 Jenny Wiley Stakes (USA-G1) winner Daisy Devine, multiple Grade 3 winner Alms, and French Group 3 winner Charity Belle over the last dozen years. In Daring Tact, this line appears to have reached a new height, and one can hope that more good things are on the way for this globetrotting family.
