Thoroughbred Racehorse. 1958 Canadian Horse of the Year.

Nearctic was a superior race horse,but is best known as a sire. Among the horses he sired were Icecapade, Ice Water, Nonoalco, Northern Queen, Cool Reception and the greatest stallion of all time Northern Dancer.

About 70 per cent of Thoroughbred foals born today have Nearctic in their bloodlines. The world's leading sires -- Sadler's Wells, Storm Cat, Danehill, Phone Trick, Thunder Gulch, Deputy Minister, Danzig, Nureyev -- are all direct descendants.
