Nature Strip Horse Pedigree (pedigreequery.com) (Nicconi (AUS) – Strikeline (AUS)

Uncovering his strains reveals a lot to genetic wonders of thoroughbred breeding.

Nature Strips broodmare sire Desert Sun – an ‘eye of the storm’. Desert Sun’s pedigree outcross are classic Blandford multiples mixed to Lady Josephine speed factors.

Desert Sun – sire of the great New Zealand & Australian Hall of Fame champion mare Sunline (NZ) and broodmare sire to unbeaten champion mare, Black Caviar (AUS) & her half brother sire, All Too Hard (Casino Prince) notably the sire of Alligator Blood, Behemoth, Demonitization, Wellington and the filly, Forbidden Love. Also b/m sire of 4yo stallion Poland (So You Think) for 2 G3 wins, where Poland’s distaff is same female-family to Sunline.

Desert Sun, sire of La Bella Dema (NZ) a mare of G1 class & mare, Our Egyptian Raine (NZ) G1 Australian sprinter.

A true honest producer, Desert Sun ‘get’ may be best thought as tough, determined.

Nature’s Strip sire – Nicconi a fair modest sire of G1 bridesmaid filly Lankan Star & gelding Sirconni a G2 & G3 performer to 4 wins & also, 7x Stakes wins, chestnut gelded Quatronic.

Nature’s Strip dam, the distaff reveals remarkable factors where 6th dam, is daughter of Nearco. 3rd dam by Zamazaan (FR) champion sire of stayers in Australian and New Zealand, has 4×4 son & daughter by Nearco, & thereafter pedigree comes running back through Nearco sons. This template exercises the preferred refinement via female daughters, not sons.

@ TBL – *it is strongly considered Nearco’s dam Nogara to her dam Catnip by Spearmint by Carbine was the ‘most’ responsible factor to Tesio’s earliest selection choice of family & dam line. Spearmint also runs to Danzig’s dam line (3rd dam) by Felstead/Spion Kop/Spearmint & plus, Bletchingly (AUS) via his 3rd dam. Also broodmare sire, Desert Sun has 6th dam by Felstead/Spion Kop/Spearmint and again, Pre-Emptive Strike (CAN) 5th dam by Felstead/Spion Kop/Spearmint. They are all female, dam factor inheritance.

Spearmint was the 1906 Epsom Derby winner

Of further interest are Nature Strips dam strain(s) by female family 1P (foundation family of Astor stud, UK).

family 1P distaff per Nature Strip: Pre-Emptive Strike (CAN) and Wilwyn (GB) son of Pink Flower (Oleander GER) from Plymstock daughter of Winkipop 1 n’ same broodmare sire family of the great Phar Lap.

Also family 1P the distaff to Black Caviar & plus to her pedigree – 3×4 Vain by Wilkes by Court Martial from dam Instantaneous of the 1P family.

As we watch Nature Strip, we may further marvel those Bloodlines he carries.
