Pedigree Potential, Part 67

Filly by Mr. Speaker out of Cashmere

This long legged colt is a full brother to champion racehorse Hansen, by Tapit. Hansen was 2011 Champion Juvenile who won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile over Union Rags at odds of 7-1 in his first dirt start. The colt, however, seemed a bit distance limited. The pedigree on the colt here does show inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (4Sx5S), Raise a Native (5Sx4D), Secretariat (5Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (5Sx5D). The influence from Mr. Prospector comes through son Fappiano and daughter Preach, the dam of Pulpit. Northern Dancer influence comes from sons Nijinsky II and Storm Bird. Overall, this colt should be fine on the dirt and around two turns. However, he may be best at the shorter distances, such as a mile.

This leggy little one is by Bernardini, a sire of such runners like Imperative, Cavorting, Stay Thirsty, and Alpha.

The mare is by 2005 Kentucky Derby winner Giacomo. The pedigree on the colt shows inbreeding to Secretariat (4Sx5D), Boldnesian (5Sx5D), and Buckpasser (5Sx5D). There is influence from Northern Dancer through daughter Northern Fable while Mr. Prospector shows influence through son Fappiano. There is additional influence from Dr. Fager, Spectacular Bid, Holy Bull, Hail to Reason, and Caro. Overall, this pedigree is primed for dirt and to be efficient around two turns.

Overall, this colt is likely to be a turf runner who should handle a mile or more easily.

Tonalist won the Belmont Stakes, the Cigar Mile, and the Jockey Club Gold Cup twice, two years in a row. The mare, Fly In For The Win, never won and has no foals of racing age.

There is also influence from Buckpasser, His Majesty, and Nijinsky II (son of Northern Dancer). There is quite a bit of stamina in the colt’s pedigree. The colt should handle two turns on the dirt best and should be better with age.
