By champion three-year-old Bernardini, Transparent is owned by Darley Stable and is a trainee of Kiaran McLaughlin. Transparent broke his maiden as a 3-year-old in his sixth start by 5 3/4 lengths. He went on to win an allowance race by 10 3/4 lengths at Aqueduct. After a dissapointing ninth place finish in the Travers, Transparent placed fourth in the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing.
Transparent's dam is a half-sister to multiple graded stakes, and track record setter Street Boss. He sold for $725,000 at the Fasig-Tipton New York saratoga select yearling sale in 2011.
