Pedigree Potential, Part 66

Colt by Uncle Mo out of Deja Blu

This gorgeous Liam’s Map filly was bred by Siena Farm. Liam’s Map was a dual Grade One winner of the Woodward and the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, setting a record in the latter. The mare, Zayanna was unplaced in two starts for Siena Farm before retiring to their broodmare band. The filly here is a half to two foals of racing age, both being winners. The first is a 3YO of 2017 by Lonhro, undefeated in 3 starts and a listed stakes winner. The other is a 2YO by Jimmy Creed, named Admiral Jimmy. The colt was a debut winner for Todd Pletcher. The pedigree on the filly shows inbreeding to Fappiano (4Sx5D), Mr. Prospector (5Sx5D), and Forty Niner (5Sx4D). Both Fappiano and Forty Niner are sons of Mr. Prospector. Northern Dancer also has influence through sons Lyphard and Storm Bird. There is also influence from Ta Wee, Damascus, Seattle Slew, Spectacular Bird, and Tabasco Cat. Overall, this filly is likely to be a dirt runner who should be a nice miler type who has the ability to likely go a bit longer. If she goes to the sale, she is likely to bring some attention.

This little guy is by Bernardini, winner of the 2006 Preakness Stakes, Travers, and Jockey Club Gold Cup (among others) and top class sire of horses like Stay Thirsty, Cavorting, and To Honor and Serve. The mare, Fancy Strike, was a non-winner in two starts. The mare is relatively young, having only an unraced 3YO and an unnamed 2YO. However, the mare is a half to Tonalist, the 2014 Belmont Stakes winner and spoiler to California Chrome’s Triple Crown attempt. The colt is bred along a similar cross as First Dude (Stephen Got Even/Smart Strike) and Juanita (Mineshaft/Smart Strike). There is inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (5Sx3D), Buckpasser (5Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (5Sx5D). There is additional influence from Pleasant Colony, Spectacular Bid, Dr. Fager, and Seattle Slew. There is quite a bit of Bold Ruler on the top half of the pedigree. Overall, this colt is likely to be a dirt runner who matures with age and distance.

This well-muscled colt is by Carpe Diem, a first year stallion by Giant’s Causeway. Carpe Diem was a dual Grade One winner, winning at distances of 5.5-9 furlongs. He placed 10th in the 2015 Kentucky Derby, which marked his final start before entering stud in 2016 at WinStar Farm. The mare is young, only have a 2YO of 2017 by Shanghai Bobby, who has not started and is overseas, after selling at Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up Show. The mare never won but placed five times in eight starts. The pedigree on the colt is a outcross, meaning there is no inbreeding within the first five generations. There is influence from Northern Dancer through sons Storm Bird, Danzig, Nice Dancer, and Lyphard. Mr. Prospector brings influence from sons Fappiano and Miswaki. There is also influence from Secretariat, Rahy, Caro, In Reality, Seattle Slew, and Buckpasser. Overall, this colt could be any type when it comes to surface, but should be a two-turn type horse.

This gorgeous pair is Deja Blu and her 2017 Uncle Mo colt, at home at Siena Farm. Uncle Mo was, in 2016, the #1 Second-Crop sire, #3 National sire, and #3 Kentucky sire, in company with the likes of Tapit and Curlin. In 2016, the stallion’s progeny made over $12 millions, which was helped by the likes of Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, Wood Memorial winner Outwork, and other stakes winners Mo Tom, Gomo, and Laoban. The mare is a 2008 daughter of Seeking the Gold (Mr. Prospector) and producer of two named foals, only one being a runner and winner. The mare is also a 3/4 sibling to Santa Catarina (Unbridled), a Grade Three winner and a four-time Grade One placed runner, including a 3rd in the 2002 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies and 2nd in the 2003 Kentucky Oaks. The colt here has quite the pedigree for success. He does show inbreeding to Northern Dancer (5Sx5Dx5D) through sons Dixieland Band, Far North, and Storm Bird. There is also Danzig and Sovereign Dancer in the fifth generation, two other sons of Northern Dancer. There is also Mr. Prospector blood through Seeking the Gold. There is also influence from Roberto, Buckpasser, Caro, and Secretariat. Overall, the colt is bred on a fabulous cross to be a successful individual and very attractive at the sales.

With a filly like this one, the potential is endless. The filly is by 2006 Preakness, Travers, and Jockey Club Gold Cup winner Bernardini and out of the graded stakes placed Empire Maker mare, Artemis. The pedigree on the filly shows inbreeding to Fappiano (4Sx4D), Mr. Prospector (5Sx5D), Killaloe (5Sx5D), Secretariat (4Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (5Sx5D). The Northern Dancer comes through sons son El Gran Senor and daughter Northern Fable. The pedigree is geared toward stamina. The mare was by a Belmont Stakes winner (Empire Maker), out of a mare by a dual classic winner (Smarty Jones), and Bernardini has sired endless amounts of classic type horses who get better with age and maturity. The pedigree also boasts influence from Buckpasser, Spectacular Bid, Boldnesian, Dr. Fager, and Gone West (another son of Mr. Prospector). This filly should bring considerable attention at the sales (if she goes, as Siena Farm maintains a racing stable as well), and should get better with distance and age. She will more than likely be a dirt runner.

This piece of horseflesh is graded stakes placed Alaura Michele, a daughter of Arch, and her first foal, a 2017 filly by Curlin. Curlin stands at Hill n’ Dale farm along side other Breeders’ Cup winners Midnight Lute, Secret Circle, New Years Day, and Bayern. Curlin was once the all time leading money earner in North America, surpassing Cigar. The stallion has sired classic winners like Exaggerator, Palace Malice, and other stakes winners and champions Stellar Wind, Curalina, and Irish War Cry. The filly shows inbreeding only from Northern Dancer (5Sx5D) through sons Vice Regent, Danzig, Nijinsky II, and Sadler’s Wells (the last two being in the fifth generation). Mr. Prospector also shows up in the pedigree through sons Smart Strike and Gone West (in the fifth generation). There is additional influence from Sir Ivor, Alydar (another son of Raise a Native), Hail to Reason, and Princequillo. The filly should be highly attractive to buyers for both breeding and racing reasons. The filly is bred on a cross which has produced multiple top turf runners, such as The Pizza Man (English Channel/Lear Fan) and Class Leader (Smart Strike/Kris S.). Overall, this filly should find two turns on the turf to her liking.

This gorgeous little one is from the second crop of Verrazano, who has his first crop of yearlings in 2017. Verrazano was a dual Grade One winner at age three, winning races like the Wood Memorial, the Haskell Invitational, and other races like Tampa Bay Derby and the Pegasus Stakes. At age four, Verrazano tried his foot on the turf overseas, placing in two Group One races. The mare, Brianna Rose, is an unraced daughter of Distorted Humor. The mating that produced this foal shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospectr (4Sx5Sx4D), Raise a Native (5Sx5D), Gold Digger (5Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (5Sx5Dx5D). The Mr. Prospector comes through son Forty Niner (sire of Distorted Humor) and daughter Chic Shirine, 2nd dam of Verrazano. The Northern Dancer blood comes through Sadler’s Wells, Danzig, and daughter Northern Sea (dam of Southern Halo, sire of More Than Ready). There is additional Northern Dancer through sons Vice Regent, Storm Bird. There is additional influence from Blushing Groom (through son Rahy and daughter Too Chic), Secretariat (through daughters Sister Dot and Terlingua), Hail to Reason, and Tom Rolfe. Overall, this filly could be a dirt or turf runner, but either way, will likely be a sprinter/miler type who should be able to go a little longer if needed, and under the right circumstances.

This tired little girl is by champion stallion Uncle Mo, who stood 2017 for $150,000. The stallion has sired a Kentucky Derby winner in Nyquist, a Wood Memorial winner Outwork, stakes winners Mo Tom, Unbridled Mo, and Laoban. The mare was strictly raced in South America, winning only twice in in 13 starts. The filly is bred on the exact cross which produced 2015 Juvenile Champion and 2016 Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist. The pedigree shows inbreeding to Secretariat (5Dx5D) through daughters Terlingua and Secrettame, and Northern Dancer (5Sx5D) through sons Dixieland Band and Storm Bird. There is additional Northern Dancer in the sixth generation through sons Vice Regent, Danzig, and Sovereign Dancer. There is also additional influence from Caro, Roberto, His Majesty, Dr. Fager, Buckpasser, and Mr. Prospector (through son Gone West). Overall, if this filly gets to the track, she should be able to stretch two turns and be a precocious type.
