Bred by Glasgow Stud, Quiver's family is responsible for horses as Polymelus, Right Royal; Aga Khan's Uganda; Sunday Silence and Wild Again. Quiver's pedigree is still interesting. Even the most cursory of glances reflects the intense inbreeding of the time, with virtually dozens of strains of Eclipse via Pot-8-O's in particular and Mercury in other instances. Highflyer is represented as are other Herod strains. When mated with the quality stallions the blood of Quiver build the very stones upon which the house of modern Thoroughbred stands. Her contribution is thus as Darwinian in its scope as St. Simon's own and it is her encounters with him and his like that bred today's racehorse as we know him.
Quiver's legacy is timeless; she is one of the ageless ones.
