Karel Miedema's Pedigree Evaluation

Sires Handbook 2012 - www.sportingpost.co.za

What makes a strong female line? The theory of female-line kin-breeding suggests it is the continued build-up, generation after generation, of matching bottom female-line elements. Every consecutive sire in the female line chain needs to contribute to the bottom-line. Research show that female-line kin-breeding in the general population is random, that the incidence of kin-breeding increases as the quality increases, and that it reaches a pinnacle in the very best horses, whose dams are mostly closely kinbred.

The female line of Philathropist is one such famous female line. Its build-up is revealing.

Start with sixth dam La Chica. Small, grey and unraced. Dam of eight foals, seven of them 2yo winners, none of whom made their mark at a later age. La Chica is kinbred 3x3 Belle Rose x Fiona.

Next fifth dam Planetoid, who won five times as a 2yo. Also grey, she was her dam’s first foal. Planetoid is kinbred 2x4x4 Adana x Belle Rose x Fiona. Her sire Ariel’s dam Adana is out of a full sister to Domino.

Mated to the grey Derby winner Mahmoud, Planetoid produced the grey Grey Flight, a stakes winner of twelve races. Grey Flight is kinbred 4x5x5 Lady Josephine x Belle Rose x Fiona. She represents a turning point in the family’s fortunes, producing a string of topclass winners. They include champion filly Misty Morn (by Princequillo, and dam of champion 2yo and successful sire Bold Lad, by Bold Ruler) and What A Pleasure (by Bold Ruler, and twice champion sire in the USA).

Grey Flight’s daughter Clear Ceiling, third dam of Philanthropist, and full sister to What A Pleasure. Clear Ceiling, a bay, won five races, over 6 furlongs and less. She is kinbred 4x3 Sweep Out x La Chica, with behind it 7x6x6 St Cypria x Belle Rose x Fiona. Clear Ceiling made her mark as dam of English 1000 Guineas winner Quick As Lightning (TFR 123, by Buckpasser), and with two fillies by Majestic Light who are female line ancestors of Gr1 winners Kona Gold (TFR 125, by Java Gold) and Hot Chacha (TFR 120, by Cactus Ridge). Another daughter, Pure Profit, bred two G1 winners, one of them also dam of a G1 winner.

Pure Profit also is the grandam of Philanthropist. Winner of 4 races from just 5 starts, Pure Profit is kinbred 8x8x7x7 Venture x St Cypria x Belle Rose x Fiona. One of Pure Profit’s G1 winning daughters, Inside Information, is kinbred 4x3 Glamour x Grey Flight. Glamour is from the La Troienne female line, where in the background female line ancestor Paradoxical is very close kin to St Cypria, Belle Rose and Fiona. Inside Information is dam US champion 3yo filly Smuggler, by Unbridled, and kinbred 4x5 Magic x Planetoid.

Pure Profit’s other G1 winning daughter Educated Risk is by Mr Prospector, and is full sister to Hidden Reserve, dam of Philanthropist. The mating with Mr Prospector gives kin-breeding 6x5 Frizeur x La Chica. Mr Prospector’s significant female line ancestor Ondulee is very close kin to St Cypria, Belle Rose and Fiona. It is remarkable how the connections between such remote femaleline ancestors persist.

In Philanthropist, the kin-breeding is through the fifth dam of his sire Kris S., Miss Tolka, who is kin to St Cypria, Belle Rose and Fiona.

Where From Here

The sensible way to mate Philanthropist would be by continuing the bottom female-line kin-breeding. Since the make-up of the mares to visit him is not known, an alternative is to look at what has worked for the stallion’s family in terms of sire-lines, and use these as signposts in potential mares to be mated.

One that stands out is National Assembly, who has a solid breeding record with 22 crops in South Africa. National Assembly’s dam Renounce is by Buckpasser out of a full sister to Philanthropist’ third dam Clear Ceiling. In make-up, Renounce is very close kin to Philanthropist’ grandam Pure Profit. This raises the expectation that the kinbreeding affinities for National Assembly and Philanthropist may be similar.

By extension, mares with National Assembly and/or the lines with which he has been successful might suit Philanthropist.

Notable line appears to be Bold Ruler, through Jungle Cove and through the half brothers Home Guard and Peaceable Kingdom (their dam by Bold Ruler). The dam of the latter pair is a sister to sire Boldnesian, who may count.

From the Grey Flight female line also comes Quick Turnover, a son of Buckpasser and very close kin to National Assembly’s dam Renounce. National Assembly got highclass Deliberation from Roman Law, a daughter of Quick Turnover.

Buckpasser, from the La Troienne female line, sired Gr1 1000 Guineas winner Quick As Lightning from the female line. He’s may be significant, and can be had through highclass sires of broodmares Al Mufti and Northern Guest (among others). Al Mufti’s son Captain Al is out of a mare by Complete Warrior, the latter with Bold Ruler and Buckpasser’s dam Busanda. J&B Met winner Angus is by Northern Guest from a mare with Quick Turnover as damsire.

Mr Prospector should be noted, especially when combined with other significant lines, as in Secret Prospector (whose dam is half sister to Private Account, sire of Inside Information, the half sister to Philanthropist’ dam).

Majestic Light, whose female traces to Belle Rose, also has done well with the female line. An older SA sire, High Powered, is from the same female line.

Philanthropist started his stud career in N-America. His stakes winning daughter Bear It’s Time has a female line which is represented in South Africa through Perfick, Coral Gold, Grey Sky.

Karel Miedema's Mating Suggestions

Sires Handbook 2012 - www.sportingpost.co.za

1. Grey Flight female line descendants, notably National Assembly, Quick Turnover
2. Female lines which have successful offspring by National Assembly
3. Lines which have combined well with National Assembly (notably Bold Ruler, as in Jungle Cove, Home Guard, Peaceable Kingdom, Boldnesian, Seattle Slew)
4. La Troienne female line descendants (notably Buckpasser, as in Northern Guest, National Assembly – but is widespread)
5. Mr Prospector, in combination with other notable lines (Secret Prospector, etc.)
6. Majestic Light, High Powered
7. Lines with which Philanthropist has done well from crops abroad (Grey Sky, and female lines of mares Coral Gold, Perfick)

Philanthropist’s third dam Clear Profit is full sister to US Champion sire What A Pleasure, and to the grandam of successful SA-sire National Assembly.Philanthropist’s grandam Pure Profit is close kin to the dam of National Assembly, suggesting that the kin-breeding affinities for the two stallions will be similar (and that Philanthropist may suit mares who have National Assembly).

The bottom female line also is the one of Native Dancer (through the mare La Chica). This line links to the bottom lines of Raise a Native and his son Mr Prospector. The latter has done well with the family, and also is Philanthropist’s damsire. La Troienne provides kin-links with the female line and has a good record with the family, notably through Buckpasser.

SUITABLE LINES for Philanhropist could include descendants of La Troienne (in multiples), which are widespread, but Al Mufti (Captain Al, Victory Moon, The Sheik), and Northern Guest are notable Buckpasser carriers. So are National Assembly and Quick Turnover, who both give additional bottom female line links, so that female lines which have a good record with either of these sires deserve attention.

Philanthropist’s second crop stakes winning daughter Bear It’s Time has a bottom female line which is represented in South Africa; its carriers should be noted (eg. Perfick, Coral Gold, Grey Sky, etc.).
