Pedigree Potential, Part 70

Colt by American Pharoah out of Global Finance

This gorgeous chestnut filly is by City Zip, the Lane’s End stallion who has sired champions like Work All Week, Catch a Glimpse, and Dayatthespa. As a racehorse, City Zip was incredibly fast, winning races like the Hopeful, the Saratoga Special, and Amsterdam, among multiple other stakes wins. The mare, Curlin n Twirl, was a two-time winner while sprinting on the dirt. She was a $100,000 yearling and then sold to Silesia Farm for $100,000 while carrying this filly. The pedigree on the filly shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (3Sx4D), Raise a Native (4Sx5D), and Gold Digger (4Sx5D). There is also influence from Northern Dancer through sons Nijinsky II, Vice Regent, and Danzig. There is influence from In Reality, Blushing Groom, Halo, Bold Ruler, and Swaps. The filly, if she makes it to the track, could be a nice runner on either surface. City Zip’s seem to do a bit better on the turf, and this filly simply has the pedigree to be a quality turf filly. It helps that she is bred on a similar cross as Palace (City Zip/End Sweep), Reneesgotzip (City Zip/Distorted Humor), and Speedinthruthecity (City Zip/Thunder Gulch).

This leggy little filly is by new stallion Competitive Edge, who has his first foals on the ground in 2017. Competitive Edge was the top colt from Super Saver’s first crop. The stallion won races like the Hopeful (GI) and the Pat Day Mile (GIII). He was incredibly fast and was highly regarded in the Todd Pletcher barn. The mare, Skye Silver, was a non-winner in seven starts but placed second or third in three of those seven starts. This filly is her first foal. The pedigree on the filly show inbreeding to A.P. Indy (4Sx5D) through daughter Supercharger and son Pulpit, Seattle Slew (5Sx5D), Deputy Minister (5Sx4D), and Mr. Prospector (5Sx5Sx5Dx5D). The Mr. Prospector comes through son Seeking the Gold and daughters Got Lucky, Silver Valley (dam of Silver Deputy), and Chic Shirine. The Northern Dancer influence extends through grandsons Storm Cat, Deputy Minister as well as sons Sovereign Dancer, Lyphard, and daughter Dance Number. The pedigree also influence bloodlines of Roberto, Caro, Dr. Fager (broodmare sire of Too Chic), and Secretariat (sire of Sister Dot, dam of Dehere). The filly should be fast and take to the dirt. Look for her to be a sprinter type.

This sweet little thing is by record breaking Liam’s Map, a son of Unbridled’s Song, who stands at Lane’s End Farm. Liam’s Map has his first foals on the ground in 2017. As a racehorse, the stallion won top races like Harlan’s Holiday Stakes, Woodward (GI), Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (GI), and finished second to Honor Code in the Whitney (GI). The mare, Kelli Got Frosty, is a daughter of Frost Giant who race exclusively in the state of New York, winning the 2012 East View Stakes at Aqueduct. In her 13 starts, the mare hit the board in 9 of them. The filly here is bred be study and precocious, but will mature with age. She has inbreeding to Storm Cat (4Dx5D), Seattle Slew (5Dx5D), and Mr. Prospector (5Sx5D). Storm Cat, a grandson of Northern Dancer, is the sire of both Giant’s Causeway (sire of Frost Giant) and Steady Cat (the dam of Jump Start). There is additional influence from Northern Dancer through daughter Dance Number, while additional Mr. Prospector comes through Forty Niner. Secretariat has quit the influence here as well, through daughters Tweak, Secrettame, Terlingua, and Weekend Surprise. This filly should have no issue with the dirt and should be a nice sprinter/miler type who could likely go a bit longer.

This excited little thing is by The Factor, a dirt sprinting son of War Front, who has his first crop of three-year-olds this year. The Factor has sired horses like Noted and Quoted (GI), Fact Finding, and Multiplier. As a racehorse, The Factor won races like The Rebel (GII), Malibu (GI), Pat O’Brien (GI), and San Vicente (GII), among other stakes wins/placings. The mare, Archangelus, is a daughter of Empire Maker who never won a race and only managed to place once in five tries. She is a young mare who has no foals of racing age. The cross here is an interesting one, producing a foal with quite a bit of inbreeding, including Danzig (3Sx4D), Northern Dancer (4Sx5Dx5D), Pas de Nom (4Sx5D), Nearctic (5Sx5D), Fappiano (5Sx4D), Mr. Prospector (4Sx5Dx5D), and Buckpasser (5Sx5D). Remember, Fappiano is a son of Mr. Prospector, but the additional Mr. Prospector comes through son Miswaki and daughter of Preach (dam of Pulpit, the broodmare sire of Archangelus). The Northern Dancer comes through not only Danzig but also son El Gran Senor, sire of Toussaud (dam of Empire Maker, Chester House, etc.). The foal should have no issue with the dirt and likely will be the miler type.

This strong looking colt is by Chitu, a graded stakes winning son of Henny Hughes. Chitu won races like the Sunland Derby, the Damascus Stakes, and placed in the Malibu Stakes behind Shared Belief. This foal is the first for the mare Wind Racer, a daughter of Curlin. The pedigree on the colt shows inbreeding Meadowlake (4Sx3D), Hold Your Peace (5Sx4D), Suspicious Native (5Sx4D), and Raise a Native (5Dx5D). There is additional influence Raise a Native in the pedigree through son Alydar. There is Northern Dancer blood through sons Storm Bird, Nureyev, and Vice Regent. There is Secretariat blood through daughters Terlingua and Weekend Surprise. The pedigree brings additional influence from horses like Smart Strike (son of Mr. Prospector), Bates Motel, and A.P. Indy (damsire of Chitu). Overall, this colt would be a nice runner who should excel over the sprint/mile distances. Personally, I hope he gets tried on the turf, with the Henny Hughes and Curlin influences there.

This sweet little thing is by Kitten’s Joy, the top turf stallion in the United States. Kitten’s Joy was not only a top turf racehorse, but has sired top racehorses, such as Breeders’ Cup winners Bobby’s Kitten, Stephanie’s Kitten, Oscar Performance, and others like Big Blue Kitten and Real Solution. The filly is out of Hail Cornell, a daughter of All American (AUS). The mare was only a one time winner in 12 starts, but hit the board a total of four times in those 12 starts. The pedigree on the filly is a good cross, showing inbreeding to Roberto (4Sx4D), Hail to Reason (5Sx5D), Bramalea (5Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (4Sx5D). The Northern Dancer blood comes through sons Sadler’s Wells and Danzig. There is some interesting names that don’t often show up in US racing, such as Strawberry Road, Apalachee (son of Round Table and Moccasin), as well as names like Damascus, Buckpasser, Tom Fool, and Bold Ruler. Overall, this filly is intended to be a quality turf runner who should bring attention to international breeders and owners, if she does go to the sales.

This leggy little guy is by Candy Ride, an undefeated champion racehorse who has turned into an impeccable stallion, siring horses like Gun Runner, Twirling Candy, Shared Belief, and Paid Up Subscriber. The stallion won on both turf and dirt from 6-9 furlongs. He even won the Pacific Classic over horses like Medaglia d’Oro and Milwaukee Brew. The mare, Ten Halos, was stakes placed but is best known for her reputation as a broodmare. She produced top racehorse Cinco Charlie, by Indian Charlie. The colt is is bred on a similar, highly successful cross, as horses like Twirling Candy (Candy Ride/Chester House), Clubhouse Ride (Candy Ride/Seeking the Gold), and Paid Up Subscriber (Candy Ride/Street Cry). There is inbreeding to the highly influential stallions Mr. Prospector (5Sx4D) and Northern Dancer (5Dx5D). The Mr. Prospector comes through sons Fappaino and Conquistador Cielo. The Northern Dancer comes through sons Vice Regent and Dance In Time, as well as Lyphard in the sixth generation on the top end of the pedigree. There is additional influence from Hoist the Flag, Polynesian, Blushing Groom, Never Bend, and Hail to Reason. Overall, this colt should have no issue with the dirt and should be a nice miler type who could go shorter or longer.

This gorgeous little guy is by American Pharoah, the 2015 Triple Crown winner. As a racehorse, we all saw what American Pharoah was capable of. As a stallion, he is an unknown. The mare, Global Finance, was a multiple stakes winner and has produced some quality racehorses herself, including the Scat Daddy filly, Alcapulco, a globe trotting graded/group stakes winner on the turf. The mare is a 100% producer, having all her foals of racing age to start are winners, including another stakes winner in Prenuptial, a mare by Broken Vow. The breeding on the colt here does show inbreeding to highly influential Mr. Prospector (4Dx5D) and Fappiano (5Sx4D). The additional Mr. Prospector comes through son Forty Niner, sire of End Sweep, the sire of Global Finance. There is influence from Norther Dancer in the pedigree through sons El Gran Senor, Storm Bird, and Dance Spell. There is additional influence from horses like Terlingua (dam of Storm Cat, daughter of Secretariat), Exclusive Native (sire of both Affirmed and Genuine Risk), and In Reality. Overall, this colt could be any type but is likely to try the turf, as his half sister is a quality turf runner.
