Our subject is Australian colt, Farnan (Not a Single Doubt AUS) – Tallow (Street Cry).

As a 2 year old colt to 5 wins from 6 starts inclusive of a G1, 2020 Golden Slipper (1200m) ‘we’ racing fans are eager to see him at new season’s campaigns.

Much to drool about & tho’ 3×4 Danehill, the colt Farnan has exceptional representation to factor our exclusive researchMartha’s daughters…

(n.b. take time to comprehend ‘her’ invisible layer through every known pedigree. This is Martha’s world wide influence, since ‘she’ greatly governs sports horse breeding of not only immortal thoroughbreds but the world’s best quarter horses that fired with Three Bars (TB), his great grand-son Dash for Cash, his dam from same female distaff as Secretariat.  Secretariat and Carbine, ad infinitum . Martha also largely influencing Brazil’s breed, the Mangalarga Paulista – thanks to a progeniture TB sire named Lancaster 1883. (Thank you Gilbert Junqueira – member to FB, Bloodlines in the Sport of Kings)

Martha Lynn – the trait-presence to Farnan (AUS); this is coming through 2nd dam sire Lion Hunter (AUS), to his dam’s sire Godswalk (USA), female family 2h. Lion Hunter’s dam Pure of Heart (IRE) is a Gr. 1 winner – George Ryder Stakes & Gr.3 VATC Autumn Stakes. Dam of 10, she had 6 winners.

sidenote: Godswalk (USA) is 4th dam sire to Australian 4 year old gelding: Run for Glory (Olympic Glory (IRE) – Nayana (AUS) ex- Iglesia, has 11 starts, for 5 wins, the last 4 wins, in succession.

If you think Farnan’s pedigree is a fluke, think again. The genotype pattern here ⇒ pedigree Racers Edge – Rorys Jester – God’s girl by Godswalk. Racers Edge was an Australian multiple Gr1 winner.

I am prepared to classify as proven upgraders on the Australasian grass-surface racing scene – the very sound Dancer’s Image success Godswalk (who died in 1988)
Ross du Bourg – The Australian and New Zealand Thoroughbred
(Native Dancer male line: Godswalk, is the son of Kentucky Derby winner Dancer’s Image Godswalk was a leading two year old in Ireland and developed into a top sprinter in England, where his major victory was in the Kings Stand Stakes Gr. 1 Royal Ascot. Godswalk was exported to Australia in 1983 for three seasons and left a reputation as a sire of early maturing two year olds which earned him several championships on races won.

Further reviewing Farnan’s pedigree, almost supernatural to exquisite Street Cry his broodmare sire, it goes additionally to genotype distaff, 4th dam by Vain.


– Vain the superior to Australasian breeding

the power house chestnut with the rounded, rippling physique, was described as ‘the greatest sprinter in the world’ by rival trainer Bart Cumming after the three year old colt’s history making win in the VRC George Adams Handicap (1 mile) at Flemington on 8 November 1969, sadly destined to be his last appearance on the racecourse. R. du Bourg – The Australian and New Zealand Thoroughbred.

Now there’s a race horse. Source the collective integrity to Vain by Wilkes by Court Martial by Fair Trial from the Sundridge/Americus Girl. Court Martial’s dam by Hurry On (Marcovil) and sense the superior genotype in action, because it hits hard where Sainfoin and Sundridge are genetic cousins and Marcovil has the ‘white-shirt mare’ source 1 Trait in a Genetic Ocean – II.

Court Martial

– Court Martial is the great-granddam sire to Lion Hunter’s dam, Pure of Heart (IRE). His siring son Wilkes from dam Sans Tara (GB), as also she the dam of Worden (FR). Worden is the 4th dam sire, to the dam-line Street Cry, Farnan’s broodmare sire. View Wilkes to sire Not a Single Doubt, via Rory’s Jester…connect the distinction back, Sans Tara (GB) female family 13c – 7sx8Dx7D.

Of course, there are plentiful other line-bred layers that will plentifully explain Farnan however, I shall come back to direct, 3×4 Danehill.

By my own admittance I have not been too crazy about multiple Danehill until eyes opened to the Danzig factor and since then I have seen a number of superior genotypes, running 3 – 4 x’s Danzig. Danzig’s 3rd dam sire is Felstead →Spion Kop → Spearmint→Carbine→ residing in those veins ⇒  Mersey/Clemence/Eulogy/ Martha Lynn.

As always advising… be on watch to the incremental, distaff. Note, Farnan’s female family 1-m* is infused upon Hurry On (Marcovil).

To my research & opinion – Hurry On accounts a one off ‘rarity’ but when ‘present’ will strike well ahead, its superior factor. Hurry On, by the original chef-de-race dosage is Professional: a sector mostly nil and greatly deteriorated by modern terms.

To much interest Franco Varola wrote: “The Hurry On line is celebrated for having provided some of the most powerful specimens of the Thoroughbred, but its existence is always hanging by a thread, as with the premature death of its most outstanding latter-day representative, Santa Claus”. ⇒ Santa Claus pedigree

Varola’s account (Typology of the Racehorse) still stimulates much discussion to our modern day spectrum. At time of writing his book… Hurry On even then, had bare few son lines & was ‘struggling’ to continue, versus the over plentiful line, Phalaris.

It seems the Hurry On stock were of late maturity – a perennial problem for the soul of the thoroughbred and yet, this stamina and constitutional factor are what breeders are now lamenting to.

all be well
