Kincsem left a legacy in more than bronze and artifacts, however, Although she produced but five foals before her untimely death, two of her daughters, Budagyöngye and Ollyan-Nincs, became Classic winners in Central Europe before going on to found enduring families.
Kincsem's descendants were decimated during the two World Wars, but her line has survived through Balkiralyne, a Hungarian-bred granddaughter of Budagyöngye who was imported to England, and Winnica, a Polish-bred great-great-granddaughter of Ollyan-Nincs who was imported to Germany in 1922. Both recently had prominent descendants on display, for Balkiralyne is the tail-female ancestress of Coolmore's red-hot young sire Camelot, whose son Latrobe won the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby (IRE-I) and whose daughter Athena won the Belmont Oaks Invitational Stakes (USA-IT), and Winnica is the ancestress of the top German producer Wellenspiel, whose sons Windstoss and Weltstar have won the last two runnings of the Deutches Derby (German Derby, GER-I).
KIncsem is so far back in the pedigrees of these modern stars that, aside from the mitochondrial DNA that is passed directly through the female line, it is impossible to determine how much if any genetic influence she has had on Camelot, Windstoss and Weltstar. Nonetheless, it is nice to think that they owe perhaps an extra touch of class to the mare that during her lifetime was Hungary's national treasure.
