Gamesmanship was bred by the Bloomsbury Stud and is by the winning stallion Beat Hollow out of the top broodmare Artful.

His sire, the stallion Beat Hollow, was a prolific sire and a Group 1 winner himself. Beat Hollow was bred at Juddmonte Stud and won over $2,000,000 in his own right both here and in the USA.Beat Hollow is by the famous stallion Saddlers Wells out of the winning mare Wemyss Bight.

Saddlers Wells is the grandsire of Gamesmanship and there will be few people in the horse world who do not know of this horse. He was the world's leading sire measured by the winnings of his offspring for 11 years of his time at stud. During his 30 year life he changed the course of British racing. Saddlers Wells was by Northern Dancer whose progeny won over $31,000,000 and his dam was Fairy Bridge a Bold Reason Mare.

Wemyss Bight is the grand dam of Gamesmanship, a mare who herself won over £230,000 including The Oaks. She was by Dancing Brave a Lymphard stallion out of the Mill Reef mare Bahamian. Bahamian has been ranked as one of racings 10 most influential brood mares being the grand dam of Oasis Dream as well as Beat Hollow with the stallions Kingman and New Bay to add to her impression.

Gamesmanship is out of a Green Desert mare from a highly sought after dam line. Her grand dam Brooklyn’s Dance also bred Solemnia the winner of the L’Arc de Triomphe Solemnia. Artful was bred by the Bloomsbury Stud in 2001 and raced in France, including a win, before returning home to stud at Bloomsbury to be registered as a brood mare in the Bloomsbury Private Stud book at Weatherbys. She proved herself a top broodmare, producing foals to Cadeaux General, Beat Hollow, Nayef and Galileo.
