A son of Constitution, Breakpoint is a grind-it-out stayer, a tendency that seems to have been recurrent in his female family. He is a descendant of the Irish-bred mare Rose Hill, who was imported to Chile in 1945. Sired by a stakes-winning son of the English Cup horse and stamina influence Son-in-Law out of a mare by the top 12-furlong horse Apelle (whose sire Sardanapale was also a major stamina influence), Rose Hill could be expected to pass on stamina and apparently did so. Her good descendants trace to three daughters: Quemaldad (by the major stakes winner Quemarropa), third dam of 1976 Santa Barbara Handicap (USA-G1) winner Stravina and Group 1-placed Chilean Group 3 winner Murano; Rosette (by the Fairway horse Vicinity), whose daughter Rosaleen II (by the good staying handicapper Jardiniere) won Las Oaks (the Chilean Oaks) and El Derby (the Chilean Derby) in 1961 and is the second dam of 1980 Monmouth Oaks (USA-G2) winner Rose of Morn; and Rose (by Vicinity).
Rose's branch of the family took some time developing but has become its main conduit in Chile through her granddaughter Rosary (Paresa x Rosedew, by Quemarropa), whose daughter Recia (by Chilean champion sire Silver Moon III, by dual Argentine Classic winner and important sire Seductor) won Las Oaks (CHI-G1) in 1976. Recia was a disappointment as a broodmare in the United States, but her full sister Rosarito is the dam of Group 2-placed Chilean listed stakes winner Serafino (by Tantoul) and the third dam of Chilean Group 3 winner Contralmirante. Another daughter of Rosary, Rimada (by Rigel II), is the dam of Chilean listed stakes winner Munich (by the Sea-Bird horse Mr. Long, a five-time champion sire in Chile) and of Rio Claro (by Damascus Silver), a high-class steeplechaser who won the 1988 New York Turf Writers Steeplechase Handicap and Carolina Cup. Rimada is also the second dam of Chilean Group 2 winner Faran and the third dam of 2007 Premio St. Leger (CHI-G1) winner Kurbat.
Selva Rosa, a full sister to Recia and Rosarito, produced Group 1-placed Spezia (by two-time Chilean champion sire Domineau, by Never Bend), who as a broodmare for Haras Matancilla produced two-time Chilean champion Ser o No Ser (by the Mr. Prospector horse Golden Voyager), winner of the 2003 Las Oaks. Spezia is also the dam of Sirnak (by Fappavalley), dam of 2015 Premio Alberto Vial Infante (CHI-G1) winner Samindar (by Ivan Denisovich), and of Sirena Azul, a Group 3-placed full sister to Ser o No Ser who is the dam of Chilean Group 2 winner Shapandaz (by three-time Chilean champion sire Dushyantor, a son of Sadler's Wells).
Sirena Azul's firstborn daughter Sirena del Egeo (by multiple French Group 1 winner Indian Lodge) also did well as a producer, foaling multiple Group 2 winner Safawi (by the Storm Cat horse Seeking the Dia, a multiple stakes winner in Japan) and Chilean Group 3 winner Sabiendo (by Viscount Nelson). Acquired by Haras Don Alberto, Safawi has produced two stakes winners from five named foals of racing age. One is Breakpoint; the other is Chilean Group 3 winner Suspira Mi Amor, a 2018 daughter of Lookin At Lucky who ran third in Chile's oldest Classic, the El Ensayo (CHI-G1), in 2021. In keeping with Haras Don Alberto's policy of seeking access to top American bloodlines with a history of success in Chile (they are the Southern Hemisphere base for Lookin At Lucky and Constitution), Safawi's most recent produce is a 2021 colt by 2017 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (USA-G1) winner Mendelssohn (by two-time Chilean champion sire Scat Daddy), a half brother to three-time American champion sire Into Mischief.
As a long-winded turf stayer, Breakpoint does not seem likely to fit the American commercial stallion market no matter how successful he is this year and may well return to Chile at the conclusion of his racing career. Nonetheless, he may well prove a fun addition to an American turf male division which lacks a clear leader at mid-year, and he is a worthy member of a family that, through its generations, has been in it for the long run.
