Pedigree Potential, Part 69

Foal by Tiznow out of Rubies are Red

This strong looking filly is by Flatter, a son of A.P. Indy and a full brother to Congrats. As a stallion, Flatter has sired horses like Flat Out, Upstart, Taris, and Kobe’s Back. The mare, Alert Cat, is a daughter of Empire Maker, who has proven to be an effective brodmare sire, having 537 named foals out of his daughters, with 182 (34%) being winners. The pedigree of the cross shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (3Sx5D), Secretariat (4Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (4Sx5Dx5D). Mr. Prospector is the sire of Fappiano, the grandsire of Empire Maker and Praise, the dam of Flatter. Northern Dancer sired Wild Applause, the dam of Praise, El Gran Senor, the broodmare sire of Empire Maker, and Storm Bird, sire of Storm Cat. There is also influence from Seattle Slew, sire of A.P. Indy, Buckpasser, In Reality, and Caro. Overall, this filly should have no issue with dirt or turf, and should handle the longer sprints to over a mile effectively.

This gorgeous filly is by top two-year-old Daredevil, who won the Grade One Champagne. The filly is out of the Stormin Fever mare, Rough Water, who won two of her nine starts and finished on the board in six of those nine starts. Rough Water has produced some winners, but nothing major. The pedigree on this filly shows a great amount of inbreeding, including Mr. Prospector (4Sx5Sx4D), Raise a Native (5Sx5D), Gold Digger (5Sx5D), Halo (4Sx5S), Hail to Reason (5Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (5Sx5D).

Northern Dancer sired Northern Sea (dam of Southern Halo) and Storm Bird. The filly is bred along a similar cross as Verrazano (More Than Ready/Giant’s Causeway). Overall, this filly should be a sprinter type who enjoys the dirt but could possibly be a grass type.

The In Reality/Foggy Note combo produced the mare Moon Glitter, the 4th dam of this foal, and Relaunch, sire of Cee’s Tizzy. The Northern Dancer line comes through sons Lyphard, Nice Dancer, Sadler’s Wells, and Nijinsky II. There is additional influence from Mr. Prospector through Fappiano.

This little one by Liam’s Map is out of the Divergent View, a daughter of Congrats. Liam’s Map was a record breaking son of Unbridled’s Song who won the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile and Woodward Stakes. The mare was multiple stakes placed, but did best in allowance ranks, sprinting on the dirt. The filly here shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (5Sx6Sx4Dx5D) and Forty Niner (5Sx4D). There is influence from Northern Dancer, Valid Appeal, Ta Wee, Damascus, Secretariat, and Codex. The filly is bred along a similar cross as Dunkirk (Unbridled’s Song/A.P. Indy), Ravi’s Song (Unbridled’s Song/A.P. Indy), and I’m Bountoscore (Even the Score/A.P. Indy). Overall, the pedigree on this filly should help her extend to 7 furlongs or more on the dirt. She should be precocious and get better as she ages.

This gorgeous filly is by Distorted Humor, a quality miler in his racing days, and an even better sire. Distorted Humor has sired horses like Drosselmeyer (2010 Belmont Stakes & 2011 Breeder’s Cup Classic), Funny Cide (2003 Kentucky Derby & Preakness winner), and Flower Alley (2005 Travers).

There is Mr. Prospector blood through grandsons Distorted Humor and Unbridled. There is additional influence from Alysheba, Ribot, and Hail to Reason.

This strong looking colt is by 2014 Belmont Stakes runner up Commissioner. Commissioner is from the final crop of A. P. Indy.  The stallion stands at WinStar Farm for a mere $7,500. The mare, Bide a Wee Island, is a young mare by Sligo Bay. Sligo Bay is a young broodmare sire, having only 48 dams with 104 named foals. Of those 104, 56 are runners (54%), and 37 winners (36%). The mare was only a winner once, sprinting on the all weather surface at Woodbine. The pedigree on the colt shows only inbreeding to Buckpasser (5Sx5S).

There is additional influence from Blushing Groom, Halo, Secretariat (through Weekend Surprise and Terlingua), Bold Reasoning, Roberto, and Dr. Blum. The pedigree on the colt is similar to Rachel’s Valentina (Bernardini/Medaglia d’Oro) and Music Note (A.P. Indy/Sadler’s Wells). The colt should have no issue with the dirt, but could possibly wind up on the turf at some point. Either way, he should be effective at 7-9 furlongs.

This eventually grey colt is by Classic-placed Revolutionary, a son of the late War Pass. The pedigree on Revolutionary alone is impeccable. The son of War Pass is out of Runup the Colors, an A.P. Indy daughter who is half to Prospector’s Delite, producer of both Mineshaft, Rock Slide, and Tomisue’s Delight. Tomisue’s Delight produced Mr. Sidney, a son of Storm Cat. The mare, Funny Mood (ARG), was a seven time winner in 32 starts. However, the pedigree on this strong looking colt is another nice one who could be any type. There is only inbreeding to Hoist the Flag (4Sx5S). There is influence from Blushing Groom, Mr. Prospector (through daughter Vue, dam of War Pass), Seattle Slew, Northern Dancer (through son Northern Jove), Dr. Fager, Buckpasser, and Native Dancer. Overall, this colt should be one who gets better with age and distance.
