Sierra Sue (NZ) – a 5 yo mare is categorically the grand example to where/how/why genetics work through critical mass, mitochondrial DNA to focus the dam. The focal points are specifics, where IT happens ieWilkes 5sx5Dx6D
Sierra Sue (NZ) by Darci Brahma from Centree (Centaine)
Native Trail (Oasis Dream) a big powerful bay colt & goes another talent for Godolphin racing.
3 starts for 3 wins this two year old epitomizes savvy raw. As foal, big on ‘type’, he went sold for 50k (euros) then @ Craven Breeze-Up, 210K gns & purchased on Godolphin’s behalf.
As cornerstone of today’s modern thoroughbreds, breed-shaper Northern Dancer. His line-bred duplications at times misjudged, where ‘he’ alone, rather than placed ‘with’ distaff dam lines, are the potent pedigree plan.
Nature Trail – 4S x 5S x 7D x 5d x *7D x *5DNorthern Dancer with, 5s x 5S x 7D Never Bend are main-trunk lines & Northern Dancer’s dam Natalma hallmark geno.
Thanks to Canadian born circles, I went alerted Northern Dancer was not born till late May (Feb/March foals). This was largely due to N.D’s dam Natalma, per her 3 year filly racing campaign ending with injury. Another quick decision thereafter to have Natalma covered immediately by Nearctic. (ref. Natalma | Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame).
Well, that is breed shaping for you!
Native Trail from an unraced dam to family 4-f ; further tracing back to 4th dam Populi, a good producer of 14 foals 10 winners. Populi greatest – Vanlandingham (USA) – a US champion older male later exported to Saudi Arabia.
Its worthy to note Olympia, 7sx7D, a grand-son of Hyperion and Spy Song 8dx7d from wonderful Mata Hari. And closer inNijinsky 6Dx4d, as goes to the 3rd dam sire.
(n.b. Native Trail’s dam Needleleaf is full sister G1 sprinter African Rose (Observatory) & was trained in France. Another full sister Helleborine (GB) is dam of Calyx (Kingman) – the Coolmore stallion stands in Australia)
3yo bay filly Vita Da Mamma (CHI) (Seeking the Dia (USA) – Testarudala ex- Stuka) pedigree. Chilean Guineas 1600m (G1) & Clasico Arturuo Lyon Pena (G1) winner
Her pedigree has big history: New Zealand bred infusion by name Brokers Tip (NZ) by SummerTime by Precipitation.
Brokers Tip (NZ) from NZ colonial family C25 – 3×5 Hurry On – performed in New Zealand, Australia, US & Canada and became a sire in Chile. He produced some good daughters where Bordada (CHI) is Vita da Mamma’s 4th dam.
Brokers Tip grand-daughter, produced a high-class Guineas performer Triple Joy (CHI), & as dam, produced Tabita (Proud Citizen) (G2 winner) + sprinter Tobri (Castle Gandolfo)10 wins from 18 starts + G2 performer Tobrita (Stormin Fever) 4 wins from 20 starts.
Having prior commented to alternative bloodline infusions, high integrity south americas temple-breeding manner has ‘Thy ONE’ – Penny Post (ARG), strain El Centauro (ARG) per the 5th dam Greek Glory (ARG).
Of his account – Penny Post (ARG) was ‘giant’: a genetic book, line & verses, rewriting bloodlines through Argentina, Chile and Peru where his modern day success bloodline appears through Brazil’s champion 3yo colt and multiple 2000m -2400m G1 winner George Washington (BRZ) 3x strains Penny Post daughter – Planetaria (ARG), dam of El Centauro (ARG).
The intrigue continues far… its those Italian bloodlines, Tesio’s ‘stamp’ and home-breeding cross lines, arising through the German-bred sire Brecher (GER) exported to Argentina and there a leading sire; and broodmare sire, G3 sprinter Mocito Serio.
From there the cross heads to US bloodlines; there what dominates homogozity nucleus pattern is the family 8C, Vita Da Mamma’s distaff + Storm Cat’s distaff (Terlingua) + family 13C via Seattle Slew, Mr Prospector to distaff Myrtlewood
Glory is flying with two French bred Group 1 winners Skalleti (FR) and Sisfanan (FR); each relate by sire, Kendargent (GB).
First, 6yo grey gelding Skalleti (FR) winner of last 4 starts, most recent in Munich, the Grosser Dallmayr-Preis. Skalleti is by Kendargent & Kendargent the broodmare sire, to chestnut colt, Sisfanan (Ishfahan) a 2021 Deutsches Derby winner.
Skaleeti (FR) winner 1600m – 2000m – 21 starts for 16 wins @ 5 international Racing venues.
Skaleeti flies, the winner (2000m) Grooser Dallmayr-Preis G1 video
Sire, Kendargent (GB) started his stallion career as a super, super modest sire – kind of a no-where man, he fired to super dynamic G1 sire producer & more so spectacularly, a remarkable broodmare sire. Praise.
Skaleeti: – as per discussed sire Kendargent, provision of distinguished traits belonging @ the ‘speed’ family 9C. Dam Skallet (FR) is a 1900m – 2100m performer. More Nasrullah strains arrive, via A P Indy. The family 9C genetic scope ranges to Migoli his daughter La Malaguena the 7th dam of Skaleeti, Abernant (Solicitor) & plus, loading thru 7 strains of Fair Trial + Royal Charger. Neat as a pin.
The second subject – Sisfanan is a chestnut colt sired by Isfahan (GER) with siring line back to Shirley Heights/Mill Reef/Never Bend from dam Lalun (Djeddah) & unfortunately closest we shall ever get to the extinct Djebel male line.
Sisfanan’s sire, Isfahan (Ger), also a Deutsches Derby winner and his sire, Lord of England (Ger) a 3yo German top-rated individual. They undoubtedly quality breeding sires, competitive producers and these genetics, not to be underestimated.
Stars in my eyes – Sisfanan (FR) an exciting colt & undoubtedly, a potential sire’s pedigree – easily the ‘siring’ house of full working order & a truly exciting prospect ahead.
Danehill free too….
Sisfanan has 5x5x4 Sharpen Up, + follow up Kendargent as above.
