Hot, endless fascination – Everybody wants a ‘Winx’.

Last month, New Zealand Bloodstock had its November Ready-to-Run 2 YO sale.

With familiar interest….one stood out.

TBL wondered how many might see the pedigree, pick the genetic profile.

We loved the 2 year old filly’s genotype, her breeze-up time and that balanced efficiency of gait belonging to Winx.

The pattern of another Winx is rare occasion however those key strains clearly stepped out from the page.

To the law of probability -the magic chemistry of genetic strains through crosses, we should assess from the Winx genotype, directs, ‘shapes’ overall structure.

The filly in question & subject – by Shocking (AUS), the son of Street Cry.

Shocking – 2009 Melbourne Cup winner. http://www.richhillstud.co.nz/rich-hill-stallions/shocking/stud-record

The dam – by Tale of the Cat (USA) where the dam’s dam is by Success Express. Yes, the key strain of Troy (GB) and Success Express (USA) is the ‘X’ factor we scored Winx on.


Other bloodlines and contributors all ‘held’ intact – their own key family affiliation pliable to the complete pedigree.

– via individuals Danehill and 3rd dam sire: Bletchingly (AUS) (as noted before via TBL genotype profiling) are genetically communal. Yet, better still the zone: sire’s broodmare sire across the infusing maternal  zone. Essentially, they are the speed strains.

Also noted through sire Shocking (AUS), point-to (maternally) the strain belonging to Roberto – his inbreeding to Blue Larkspur.

(*side-note See how/why Blue Larkspur ‘crosses’ along side Mr Prospector/Native Dancer read here Almond Eye (JPN)

Yes, the Roberto strain present in the maternal to Zenyatta (super star daughter of Street Cry, Winx’s other )fullsizerender

Silly Season (USA) – (Shocking’s 3rd dam sire); the strain infused to Winx’s broodmare sire Al Akbar (AUS).

*(side note: Silly Season (USA) to Mexico sensation – Kukulkan from equine gods…Kukulkan (Mex)

Other interesting notes – this 2 year old, bay filly from female family 2-r. Say hello to the family trails to Sunline, Phar-Lap both ff – 2r: New Zealand exceptional racing family. Patterns of Nature: Phar Lap & Sunline

An un-named filly has the star rated quality genotype pedigree. Excellent, sweet spots sweetspot

Now…the suspense.
