Erato is by Street Cry (IRE) and out of multiple Group 1-winning Encosta de Lago mare, Mnemosyne. Erato is also a half-sister to multiple Group 1 winner Impending, who now stands at Darley Northwood Park in Victoria. Erato herself was placed on the racetrack once and would go on to make her mark in the breeding barn. She has had three named foals, two of them have been winners. Erato produced Group 1 winner Lyre, who claimed the Blue Diamond Stakes in 2019 and has won over $1,700,000 in prize money. Erato foaled a lovely Alabama Express filly this season.
