The son of Symboli Kris S, a half-brother to Japanese 2,000 Guineas hero Saturnalia and Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes victor Leontes, has enjoyed a successful start to his second career with Japanese 1,000 Guineas and Oaks heroine Daring Tact his leading progeny.
Epiphaneia is also responsible for Grade 2 scorer Aristoteles and Grade 3 winner Efforia among a handful of Graded-placed runners.
