Jabot was a full sister to Cravat, a record-setting colt who won on both dirt and turf racecourses. They were sired by Sickle, a British Champion Two-Year-Old Colt who would become a two-time leading sire in North America. Sickle was a son of the important sire Phalaris, a two-time leading sire in Great Britain and Ireland. Jabot and Cravat's dam was Frilette, a daughter of the legendary U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Man o' War.
