Pedigree Potential, Part 65

Colt by American Pharoah out of Profess

This gorgeous, leggy colt by American Pharoah is out of Profess, a 2012 War Front mare who won one start in four starts. The accomplishments of American Pharoah are well know, but the mare is a half to the highly influential A.P. Indy son, Pulpit. The pedigree on the colt is a similar cross as stakes-placed Charm City Girl (Pioneerof the Nile/Storm Cat). There is only inbreeding to Fappiano (5Sx5D), a highly influential son of Mr. Prospector. The mare is also a daughter of a Mr. Prospector. Northern Dancer also has influence through sons Storm Bird, Nijinsky II, and Danzig. The pedigree on the colt is one that should relish dirt and two-turns.

This lovely colt is by Can the Man, one of two Into Mischief offspring standing at Spendthrift Farm. Can the Man was a Grade Two stakes winner and Grade One placed at age two. The mare, Two Kisses, was not placed in two starts, but he become a broodmare who has four named foals. She also has three winners from four to race, one being a minor stakes winner at Charles Town. The mating which produced this sweet little guy shows inbreeding to only Northern Dancer (4Sx5D) through sons Danzig and Northern Answer. There is also influence from Storm Cat, a grandson of Northern Dancer. There is additional influence from Roberto, Affirmed, Round Table, Tricky Creek, and Blushing Groom. The colt is bred on a similar cross as Lightstream (Harlan’s Holiday/Arch), a Grade Two winner. Overall, this colt likely should be a sprinter/miler type who could excel on either surface, but likely will start out on the dirt.

This little chestnut colt is a full sibling to Are You Kidding Me, a two-time Sovereign Award winner in both 2015 and 2016 as Champion Older Horse. The little guy here is by sire Run Away and Hide, standing at Darby Dan Farm for a small fee of $5,000. The colt is also a half to We Are Not Men, by Offlee Wild. The pedigree does have inbreeding to stallions Mr. Prospector (4Sx4D), Raise a Native (5Sx4Dx5D), Blushing Groom (4Sx5S), and mare Gold Digger (5Sx5D), the dam of Mr. Prospector. There is additional influence from Northern Dancer through Vice Regent (5D). There is also influence from Secretariat, Hoist the Flag, and In Reality. Overall, this colt should be able to handle two turns on the turf.

This sweet little girl is by the number one turf stallion Kitten’s Joy, and out of maiden mare Sea Bubble, a daughter of U S Ranger. The filly is bred along a similar cross as Csaba (Kitten’s Joy/War Chant) and Emotional Kitten (Kitten’s Joy/Ghazi). The filly has quite a bit of inbreeding to Northern Dancer (4Sx4Dx4D), Nearctic (5Sx5Dx5D), Natalma (5Sx5Dx5D), and Roberto (4Sx5D). The Northern Dancer comes through Danzig, Storm Bird, and Sadler’s Wells while the Roberto comes through sons Lear Fan and Red Ransom. There is additional influence from His Majesty, Buckpasser, Tom Fool, and Sir Gaylord. Overall, this sweet face should handle two turns on the turf just fancily.

Look at this lovely face and you have a filly by Atta Boy Roy and out of the Cahill Road mare Jadedite. The mare has a two-year-old of 2015 named Sherm. The mare was a one time winner in her racing days. Stallion Atta Boy Roy raced from ages 3-8, having his best season at age 5, amassing over $300,000 that year. At age 6, the stallion won the Grade Two Churchill Downs Stakes, defeating horses like Musket Man, Warrior’s Reward, and Munnings. The foal does have inbreeding to Seattle Slew (4Sx4D), Bold Reasoning (5Sx5D), My Charmer (5Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (5Sx5D). The Seattle Slew comes through Synastry and Slewledo. The Northern Dancer comes through sons Northern Jove and Vice Regent. There is additional influence from Secretariat, Mr. Prospector (through Fappaino), Dr. Fager, and Our Native. Overall, this filly should handle dirt the best and be a nice miler type.

This colt is built like a tank, just like his sire, Palace Malice, who stands at Three Chimneys Farm. The colt is bred on a similar cross stakes winner Amour Briller (ARG) (Smart Strike/Sunday Silence). The mare, Miss Always Ready was a one time winner in five tries. The pedigree on the colt shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (4Sx5D), Deputy Minister (4Sx4D), Vice Regent (5Sx5D), and Mint Copy (5Sx5D). There is additional influence from Northern Dancer through daughter Norther Sea, and son Nureyev. There is also influence from Ack Ack, Roberto, Hail to Reason, Secretariat, and Bold Ruckus. Overall, while Palace Malice did not race on turf, Curlin is both a sire of turf and dirt runners, and with More Than Ready as a broodmare sire here, the colt could be any type. The pedigree is one of the most versatile you can get. The colt should be a miler/middle distance type.

This leggy foal is by Gainesway stallion Tapizar, Tapit’s only Breeders’ Cup winner at stud. The stallion is relatively young, only entering stud in 2013 and his first crop hitting the ground in 2014. The mare, Serena’s Joy, has only produced one runner, one winner, from six of racing age (including a 2YO of 2017). The pedigree on the foal only has inbreeding to Northern Dancer (5Sx5Dx5D). The foal’s second dam is Serena’s Sister, a full sibling to Hall of Fame Serena’s Song. The foal is bred on a loosely similar cross as Hansen (Tapit/Sir Cat), Careless Jewel (Tapit/Hennessy), and Sweet Loretta (Tapit/Bluegrass Cat). Overall, the foal is likely to be a sprinter/miler type who takes to the dirt.

Fort Larned, the 2012 Fort Larned Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, has his first crop of two-year-olds this year. The stallion won other raced like Grade One Whitney and Stephen Foster. The mare, Quinnkat, is a young daughter of D’Wildcat, who was multiple stakes placed in her time on the track. The pedigree on this leggy little guy shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (3Sx5D). There is additional influence from Storm Cat, Ack Ack, Secretariat, and Blushing Groom. While Fort Larned had no issue with distance, he does have quite the bit of speed in his pedigree. Overall, this colt should not have an issue with dirt or distance.

This little guy is by 2015 Grand Slam winner American Pharoah, who stands at Ashford Stud in Versailles. We know American Pharoah has no issue with distance, but this little guy’s dam, Osaila, was a winner from 6-8 furlongs, and placed at 8.5 furlongs, when she came in 3rd in the 2014 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf behind Lady Eli. The pedigree on the colt shows inbreeding to Exclusive Native (5Sx5D) and Northern Dancer (5Dx5D). The Northern Dancer comes through sons Sadler’s Wells, Danzig, and Storm Bird. There is is influence from Mr. Prospector through son Fappiano. There is also influence from Secretariat, Never Bend, His Majesty, and Lord at War. The pedigree might be best suited for turf, as the Pioneerof the Nile line is very versatile and the mare is by Danehill Dancer, a highly influential stallion on the turf. Overall, this colt should have no issue going two turns on the turf.
