Entreaty was a black New Zealand-bred Thoroughbred mare, who was unplaced in her only race start. She produced twelve horses, one of which was Phar Lap. Entreaty's first foal, Fortune's Wheel, a filly by Night Raid, showed no potential as a racehorse. After Phar Lap's success Fortune's Wheel was put back to work again but was unplaced in three race starts. Entreaty had ten more foals after Phar Lap but none possessed anything like Phar Lap's extraordinary ability. Entreaty produced seven siblings to Phar Lap, Fortune's Wheel, Nea Lap, Nightguard, All Clear, Friday Night, Te Uira and Raphis, none of which won a principal race. Phar Lap was a half-brother to another four horses, only two of which were able win any races at all. Her daughter Raphis was a good broodmare who produced the following horses: ⁕Count Cyrano ⁕Bobalong, dam of Monte Carlo ⁕John O'London ⁕Swingalong Entreaty died in 1943.
