Triple Threat, bred and raced by Team Valor and Gary Barber, is out of Drei, a daughter of Lyphard and Grade 2 winner Triple Tipple whose other foals include Mrs Marsh, the dam of Canford Cliffs.

He started his racing career with Andre Fabre in France, where he won the Group 2 Prix Eugene Adam and Group 3 Prix La Force.

Triple Threat later joined Bill Mott in the US and added victories in the Grade 2 Monmouth Stakes and a third-place effort in the Grade 1 Northern Dancer Turf Stakes to his record.

His sire Monsun has hit a rich vein of form this week, with son Almandin becoming his third Melbourne Cup winner in four years and his daughters having produced Group 1 winners Waldgeist and Guignol.

Triple Threat is the third son of Monsun announced to be joining the stallion ranks in 2017 after Vadamos (Tally-Ho Stud) and Protectionist (Gestut Rottgen).
