Subotica is a bay horse bred by Paul de Moussac at his Haras du Mezeray in Lower Normandy. Through his sire, Pampabird, owned by de Moussac, Subotica is a descendant of the great Nearco. He was out of de Moussac's mare Terre de Feu, a daughter of the 1967 United Kingdom Horse of the Year, Busted.
In 1991, Subotica ran second in the Prix du Jockey Club to Suave Dancer, whom he had beaten in the Prix Ganay. He went on to earn his most important win of 1991 by taking the Group One Grand Prix de Paris. Health problems forced the horse to be withdrawn from France's most prestigious race, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. However, the following year, the colt won the Arc, beating a strong field that included the undefeated filly User Friendly (2nd); St Jovite (4th), who had won the Irish Derby by twelve lengths in record time; and Epsom Derby winner Dr Devious (6th).
Subotica eetired to stud on November 24. His progeny have met with limited racing success.
