This sweet little guy is by minor stakes winner Admiral Alex, a son of dual Classic winner Afleet Alex. Admiral Alex stands in Maryland at Shamrock Farm alongside Barbados, Nicanor, and Outflanker. The mare, Marzes, is a daughter of Powerscourt, a quality stallion overseas. The mare was a non winner in only two tries. The pedigree on the colt should be a nice one for turf. The colt shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (4Sx5S), Seattle Slew(4Sx5D), Nureyev(5Sx5S), Northern Dancer (4Dx5D). The Mr. Prospector comes through sons Afleet and Kingmambo, two influential sons, having sired top racehorses and sires themselves. The Northern Dancer comes through sons Sadler’s Wells, Nureyev, and daughter Dokki, dam of Aptitude. The pedigree also includes influence from Hawkster, Blushing Groom, A.P. Indy, and Alydar. Overall, this colt should be a decent turf runner if he makes it to the track.

This handsome colt is by top stallion Into Mischief. The stallion was a nice racehorse in his day, winning races like the Cashcall Futurity and the Damascus Stakes. The stallion was a sprinter but has sired all types of horses, including Goldencents, Vyjack, and Practical Joke. The mare, Amusingly, won or placed in eight of 27 starts. The colt here is a Spendthirft bred, as B. Wayne Hughes purchased the mare for $45,000 in 2006 and Into Mischief stands at the farm in Lexington. The colt is bred on the exact cross which produced Practical Joke (Into Mischief/Distorted Humor) and Goldencents (Into Mischief/Banker’s Gold). The mare is by Distorted Humor, who is becoming a top broodmare sire, siring the dam of top racehorse Arrogate. The colt shows inbreeding to only Northern Dancer (5Dx5D), through son Danzig and daughter Shahadish. There is additional influence from Northern Dancer through son Storm Bird. There is influence from Mr. Prospector through son Forty Niner (sire of Distorted Humor), as well as Halo, Terlingua (dam of Storm Cat; daughter of Secretariat), Hail to Reason, Affirmed, Seattle Slew (sire of Slew o’ Gold), and Buckpasser. Overall, this colt should be a nice sprinter/miler type on either the dirt or the turf.

This little one is by top stallion Malibu Moon, who stands at Spendthrift Farm in Lexington. Malibu Moon’s race career was cut short but as a stall;ion, has moved up the stallion ranks after siring horses like Declan’s Moon, Life at Ten, Orb, and Carina Mia. Overall, the stallion is a top sire. The mare, Five Star Dream, was a minor stakes winner in her racing days, but as broodmare, has not lived up, siring only one winner. The colt here is inbred closely to Mr. Prospector (3Sx3D), Raise a Native (4Sx4D), Gold Digger (4Sx4D), Native Dancer (5Sx5D), Raise You (5Sx5D), Nashua (5Sx5D), Sequence (5Sx5D).

This sweet little filly is by 2015 Champion American Pharoah. The stallion outran his pedigree and his competition. As for the mare, Full Ransom, she was a graded stakes winner at two, winning the GIII Miesque Stakes at Hollywood Park. She also won an allowance and the listed Kathryn Crosby Stakes at Del Mar. The filly is the first for the mare. The pedigree is an interesting one, as the filly is a complete outcross, meaning there is no inbreeding in the first five generations of the pedigree. There is influence from Mr. Prospector through son Fappiano (5S; sire of Unbridled), Northern Dancer through sons Storm Bird, Vice Regent, and El Gran Senor. The pedigree also includes horses like Seattle Slew, Roberto, In Reality, Cox’s Ridge, and Secretariat (sire of Terlingua and Weekend Surprise).

This leggy filly is by Commissioner, the last Classic son of A.P. Indy. Commissioner won races like the Hawthorn Gold Cup, Pimlico Special, and Skip Away Stakes (all won at age 4). Commissioner was best at 1-1/8 miles or longer. As a stallion, Commissioner seems like a steal at $7,500 at WinStar Farm. The mare, City Angel, is a daughter of versatile stallion City Zip. The mare never placed better than third in four starts, and is a young broodmare. The filly here should be a Classic-type. Her breeding shows inbreeding to only Buckpasser (5Sx5S). There is influence from Northern Dancer through sons Storm Bird and Magesterial. The filly has influence from Mr. Prospector (through son Carson City), Secretariat (sire of Weekend Surprise and Terlingua), Roberto, Blushing Groom, and Bold Ruler.

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.

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).

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Filly by Atta Boy Roy out of Jadedite

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 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.

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.

Colt by Fort Larned out of Quinnkat

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.

This gorgeous colt is a 3/4 brother to Sweet Loretta by Tapit son Constitution. Constitution was a dual grade one winner between ages 3 and 4, winning the Florida Derby and the Donn Handicap. The mare, Ithinkisawapudycat, is a young Bluegrass Cat mare who has produced Sweet Loretta, a grade one winner by Tapit who is undefeated outside of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies, where she finished 11th. The pedigree on the colt is similar to that of champions Hansen (Tapit/Sir Cat) and Careless Jewel (Tapit/Hennessy). The pedigree shows mass amounts of inbreeding, however. There is inbreeding to Unbridled (4Sx3D), Fappiano (5Sx4D), Gana Facil (5Sx4D), Mr. Prospector (5Sx5Sx5Dx5D), A.P. Indy (4Sx4D), Seattle Slew (5Sx5D), Weekend Surprise (5Sx5D), and Storm Bird (5Sx4D). Constitution was fragile, getting hurt a few times in his career. There is hope for soundness from the mare, but overall, this colt should show an affinity for dirt and be a sprinter type.

This leggy colt, who shows a lot of chrome, is by Honor Code, a highly anticipated son of A.P. Indy who won graded stakes like the Remsen, Whitney, and the Met Mile. The colt is out of Istiraaha, a young Tapit mare. The pedigree on the colt is loosely similar to that of A P Majestic, a stakes winner by Majestic Warrior. The pedigree shows inbreeding to A.P. Indy (2Sx4D), Seattle Slew (3Sx5D), Weekend Surprise (3Sx5D), Secretariat (5Sx5D), Mr. Prospector (4Sx5D), Northern Dancer (5Sx5D). the Mr. Prospector comes through Serena’s Tune, Preach, and Fappiano. Northern Dancer can be found through Storm Bird, Vice Regent, and Nijinsky II (5th gen.). Overall, the colt should be a a later maturing one who takes to the dirt and should be a nice miler type. Honor Code was arguably best at shorter distances, and Tapit offspring need a lot of stamina underneath to be classic type horses. This one is to look forward to.

This sweet little thing is a son of Into Mischief, one of the most versatile stallions on the market. The mare, a daughter of Yes It’s True, was a pure sprinter on the dirt.

The pedigree on the colt shows inbreeding to Northern Dancer (5Sx4D) and Mr. Prospector (4Sx5S). The pedigree also shows influence from In Reality, A.P. Indy, Hail to Reason, and Secretariat. Overall, this colt will likely start on the dirt but breeding could influence the colt to possibly contend on the turf. However, there should be no issue with the colt going two turns effectively.

Mucho Macho Man comes from a family of strong influences, such as Primal Force, who is not only the dam of Macho Uno but also Awesome Again, who was a Breeders’ Cup Classic winner who also sired Ghostzapper, another Breeders’ Cup Classic winner. The pedigree has quite a bit of stamina in it with much of that stamina being late maturing. While Mucho Macho Man was competitive at age 2 and 3, he blossomed at age 4 and 5. Overall, this filly should take to the dirt and be a two-turn type horse.

Filly by Mucho Macho Man out of Harrlett

This lovely little girl is apart of the first crop of American Pharoah. We all know the accomplishments that American Pharoah achieved in his career, and now, he is breeding to the best mares on the market, giving him the best chance of success. The filly here is a half to six named foals, one being a 2YO of 2017. The mare, Beautiful Julie, is a daughter of Tiznow. The pedigree on the filly shows inbreeding nowhere within the first five generations, making the filly a complete outcross. There is influence from Mr. Prospector through Fappiano and Forty Niner. Northern Dancer comes into the pedigree through sons Storm Bird, Lyphard, Nice Dancer, and El Gran Senor. Overall, this filly should have no issue with two turns or dirt.

This filly is apart of the first crop of Danza, the 2014 Arkansas Derby winner and 3rd in that year’s Kentucky Derby. Danza, a son of Street Boss, stands at Spendthrift for $4,000. The filly here is out go the Holy Bull mare Joanie’s Jewel, who has produced four names foals, with only one to race, and that one being a winner.

The Mr. Prospector comes through sons Tank’s Prospect and Machiavellian.  There is also influence from Buckpasser, Damascus, Vice Regent (son of Northern Dancer), Raja Baba (son of Bold Ruler), and Caro.

This gorgeous colt is the first, and only, for graded stakes winner Wishing Gate, a daughter of Indian Charlie. The sire is none other than globe conquering War Front, who stands at Claiborne Farm for $250,000 in 2017. The colt here is bred with inbreeding to only Mr. Prospector (5Sx5D). There is influence from Northern Dancer through Nijinsky II, Danzig, and Sovereign Dancer. There is also influence from Roberto, Round Table, Caro, Hail to Reason, and Blushing Groom. The colt is more than likely to be a quality turf horse, and if he hits the sales, he could bring international interest. If he does make it to the races, look for the colt to be a miler who could go longer.

Colt by War Front out of Wishing Gate

This leggy little thing is by the top turf stallion in the US, Kitten’s Joy, who also sits #8 on the general sires list, currently. The colt here is out of the Distorted Humor mare, Fleeting Humor. The mare has four foals of racing age, including a 2YO of 2017. The mare has an Afleet Alex colt named Seventhfleethumor, who is graded stakes placed. The pedigree on the colt is bred on a loosely similar cross as New Money Honey (Medaglia d’Oro/Distorted Humor). The pedigree does have inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (4Dx5D) and Northern Dancer (4Sx5D). There is additional influence from horses like Sir Ivor, Buckpasser, A.P. Indy, and Hail to Reason. Overall, the likelihood of this colt making a top racehorse is questionable, as the mare is yet to prove she can produce. However, Kitten’s Joy has moved his mares up significantly in years passed, so this colt has a shot. He will likely be a two-turn turf horse if he makes it to the track.

Colt by Kitten's Joy out of Fleeting Humor

This big colt is by the top stallion Tapit, who has been on top of the general sires list for the last three years, and breaking the earnings record each time.

The colt does shows quite a bit of inbreeding, including to Mr. Prospector (4Sx5Sx3D), Raise a Native (5Sx4D), Gold Digger (5Sx4D), Secretariat (5Sx4D), and Northern Dancer (5Sx4D). The Secretariat line comes from daughters Weekend Surprise (dam of A.P. Indy) and Terlingua (dam of Storm Cat). Overall, this colt has a high chance to be a runner and bring the big guns out to the auctions.

This strong looking colt is by Bodemeister, the newest Kentucky Derby sire. The stallion has sired Always Dreaming, the 2017 Kentucky Derby winner, Bode’s Dream, a stakes winning sprinter, and American Anthem, a stakes winner. The mare, Expressive Diva, was a two-time winner who has produced three named foals, only one starter, but that one starter is a winner, named Wellabled, who was the first stakes winner for young stallion Shackleford. The pedigree on the colt is the exact cross which produced Always Dreaming, as the mare is a daughter of In Excess. The pedigree on the colt only has inbreeding to Northern Dancer (5Sx5S). There is also influence from Roberto, A.P. Indy, Caro, Native Diver, and Secretariat. Overall, the colt should bring attention at the sales and be a nice dirt runner who can extend himself a mile or more easily.

Smarty Jones has moved back to Calumet Farm since standing in Pennsylvania for a while. This cute little filly is by the 2004 dual classic winner and out of the Woodman mare, Stormy Illusion. The mare only has two named foals, one being a 2YO of 2017, and a graded stakes placed gelding by English Channel.

Crimson Saint is the dam of Terlingua and the Nijinsky II stallion Encino. Overall, this filly likely will be a miler type but whether dirt or turf as a preference will have to be seen. Smarty Jones has sired all types of horses.

Pedigree Potential, Part 62

Colt by Palace Malice out of Tale of Glory

This sweet little American Pharoah filly is out of Halljoy, a stakes placed runner overseas before coming over to the states and running in the allowance ranks. The filly is bred on a cross that is simply unknown. There is inbreeding to only Sharpen Up (4Dx5D). The foal has influence from Northern Dancer through sons Sadler’s Wells, El Gran Senor, Nijinsky II, and Storm Bird. There is some Mr. Prospector influence from Fappiano. Overall, the pedigree is one that should go two turns on the grass. The grass element of American Pharoah’s ability was unknown but his pedigree is an exciting one to try these types of crosses.

This gorgeous Palace Malice filly is a half sibling to Guest Suite, a graded stakes winner by Quality Road. The mare, Guest House, is a out of Welcome Surprise, a Mr. Prospector half to Secretariat and Summer Squall. The pedigree does have inbreeding, but it seems like it is inbreeding that should work. There is Mr. Prospector (4Sx4D), Raise a Native (5Sx5D), Gold Digger (5Sx5D), Deputy Minister (4Sx4D), Vice Regent (5Sx5D), Mint Copy (5Sx5D), and Buckpasser (5Dx5D). The Bukcpasser comes through influential daughters Con Game (dam of Seeking the Gold) and Lassie Dear (dam of Weekend Surprise). The foal is more than likely a two-turn dirt horse who may get better with times and experience.

This gorgeous Tiznow filly is a gorgeous daughter of Izshelegal, a Maria’s Mon mare, who has produced two named foals but no runners, with her oldest being a 3YO of 2017. The mare was multiple graded stakes placed and even ran in the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies. The mare was bred on the exact cross (Maria’s Mon over A.P. Indy mare) as 2010 Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver. The filly here shows inbreeding to Seattle Slew (4Sx4D), Bold Reasoning (5Sx5D), My Charmer (5Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (5Sx5S). The Northern Dancer comes through sons Nice Dancer, Lyphard, as well as Storm Bird. There is also Mr. Prospector blood, as well as In Reality, Majestic Prince, Secretariat, and Terlingua. Overall, this filly should be a a later maturing dirt runner, but don’t be surprised to see her on turf at one point or another.

This strong looking filly is by Macho Uno, the Holy Bull son who sired horses like Mucho Macho Man, Private Zone, and Macho Again. The stallion won the Grade One Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, the Pennsylvania Derby, and the Massachusetts Handicap in his racing days. The mare, Muirneen, was a non-winner in four starts. She also has not proven to be a quality broodmare, having only one runner from three named foals, but no winners. The pedigree on the filly shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (4Sx3D), Raise a Native (5Sx4D), Gold Digger (5Sx4D), and Nashua (5Dx5D). The Nashua blood comes through daughters Gold Digger (dam of Mr. Prospector) and Bramalea (dam of Roberto). Overall, there is major turf influences in the pedigree and the filly should have no issue being a turf runner. The amount of talent passed on will be the biggest question, as her dam is not producing runners and her sire is nearing the end of his stud career.

This massive son of 2013 Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice is out of the unraced Tale of the Cat mare, Tale of Glory. The cross shows inbreeding to Mr. Prospector (4Sx4D), Raise a Native (5Sx5D), Gold Digger (5Sx5D), and Northern Dancer (5Dx5D). The Northern Dancer comes through Storm Bird, Sadler’s Wells, and sons Storm Bird, Nureyev, and Vice Regent, all being highly influential sons of the 1964 Kentucky Derby winner. The Mr. Prospector comes through Yarn, the dam of Tale of the Cat, and Smart Strike, the grandsire of Palace Malice. There is additional influence from Ack Ack, Roberto, Secretariat, and Relaunch (through sons Skywalker and Honour and Glory). Overall, this colt should be both precocious and sturdy. The colt should take to the dirt over all others.

This strong, compact colt is by Tapiture, a multiple graded stakes winning son of Tapit. The stallion won races like the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (G.II) at two, the West Virginia Derby (G. II) and the Southwest Stakes (G. III) at three. Tapiture was best on the dirt goes 7-9 furlongs. The colt shows inbreeding to Northern Dancer (4Dx4D), Nearctic (5Dx5D), and Natalma (5Dx5D). The Northern Dance comes through sons Vice Regent and Sadler’s Wells. There is also Northern Dancer through Nijinsky II through Tapiture. There is also Mr. Prospector blood through Fappiano and daughter Preach (dam of Pulpit). Overall, this colt will likely be a nice miler type who takes to the dirt.

This beautiful bay colt is by Animal Kingdom, who has taken over Australia and the U.S. as a hot young stallion. The mare, Crimson Palace (SAF), was a graded stakes winner in the U.S. and overseas. The pedigree on the colt shows inbreeding to Lyphard (a son of Northern Dancer) (5Sx5Sx3D), Northern Dancer (4Dx4D), Nearctic (5Dx5D), and Natalma (5Dx5D). The pedigree on the colt should show that he can thrive on any surface and should be a two-turn type horse. Animal Kingdom and the mare were both grade one winners, so the colt should be a nice, quality horse.

This gorgeous, leggy filly is a half to the top racehorse in the world and the all-time leading money earner in North America, Arrogate. The filly is by Into Mischief, sire of champion Goldencents and graded stakes winners such as Practical Joke and Vicar’s In Trouble. The mare has Arrogate and a two-year-old of 2017 by Medaglia d’Oro. The filly has very little inbreeding, only to Northern Dancer (5Dx5D) plus in the sixth generation through Storm Bird. The filly has additional influence from Mr. Prospector through son Forty Niner, as well as Halo, Exclusive Native, His Majesty, Hail to Reason, and In Reality. Overall, this filly is likely to try the dirt but it would not be surprised to see her take to the turf, like many Into Mischief offspring do. She likely has two-turn ability

This lovely bay filly is by Carpe Diem and out of the Medaglia d’Oro mare, Hailey’s Star. The mare was a six-time winner in 29 starts. Carpe Diem is a two-time grade one winning son of Giant’s Causeway. The filly shows inbreeding to Northern Dancer (5Sx5D) through sons Storm Bird, Sadler’s Wells, Danzig (5th gen.), as well as through grandson Deputy Minister (son of Vice Regent). The filly is bred along a similar cross as Lea (First Samurai/Galileo) and Point Piper (Giant;s Causeway/Sadler’s Wells). Overall, the filly is likely to try dirt before turf, but her breeding suggests turf should not be an issue.

This cute little thing is a filly by War Front, a global conqueror. The mare, Seeking Gabrielle was a one time winner in seven tries. The filly has two siblings, a filly by Blame who raced just once, and Nyquist, a champion two-year-old and a Kentucky Derby winner. The pedigree on this filly shows inbreeding to Northern Dancer (3Sx5D) and Mr. Prospector (5Sx4D). The Northern Dance comes through Danzig (sire of War Front), Storm Bird (sire of Storm Cat), and Nijinsky II (5th gen., sire of Ruby Slippers, dam of Rubiano). The Mr. Prospector comes through Fappiano and Seeking the Gold. The filly is bred along a similar cross as Hard Not To Like (Hard Spun/Tactical Cat). There is additional influence in the filly’s bloodlines from Pleasant Colony, Secretariat, Dr. Fager, Arts and Letters, and Crafty Admiral. Overall, this filly could be any type but look for her on the dirt first trying the sprint races.
