Stallion - Steinbeck [USA]
(b 1989, Mr. Prospector/Femme Elite by Northjet)

STEINBECK PASSES AWAY PEACEFULLY AT AGE 26

Steinbeck (b 1989 Mr. Prospector - Femme Elite), the last living son in India of the great Mr. Prospector, died peacefully at Usha Stud on Sunday, 27 September 2015 due to old age. He had been retired from covering duties since 2012.


The stallion lived for ever in the shadow of his great barn-mate Razeen so did not quite get the credit for the helping hand he gave to his senior barn-mate. His photograph adorns the Wall of Fame in the Stud Book Department and only a select few are so honoured. Steinbeck sired 19 individual Classic winners who won 29 Classics between them. The most notable of them were Running Flame (Indian Turf Invitation Cup, Gr.1), Venus Arising (Indian Oaks, Gr.1), Star of Windsor (Bangalore Derby, Gr.1), Forest Treasure (Deccan Derby, Gr.1), three winners of the Mysore Derby, Gr.1 in Splendid Surprise, Psychic Strength and Wind Stream and Alameda, the Stayers' Cup, Gr.1 winner in record time. He was a useful broodmare sire, too, and his daughters are responsible Autonomy (Indian Turf Invitation Cup, Gr.1), Set Alight (Derby Bangalore, Gr.1), Borsalino (Derby Bangalore, Gr.1), Hills and Stars (Pune Derby, Gr.1), Snowscape (Calcutta Derby, Gr.1), Snowdrift (Calcutta Derby, Gr.1), Flashing Star (Bangalore Derby, Gr.1), Star Luminary (Bangalore Derby, Gr.1), Romantic Liaison (Indian Oaks, Gr.1) and Desert Lightning (Indian 1000 Guineas, Gr.1), among others.

  • Winner at 2
  • Winner of Prix La Rochette Gr.3 & Prix Daphnis Gr.3
  • Placed 2nd in Celebration Mile Gr.2, Prix Du Bois Gr.3

His sire Mr. Prospector needs no introduction and his dam Femme Elite was a Gr.1 winning juvenile filly of the Gran Criterium with Steinbeck being her only foal.

Retired to stud in 1993.
