Karel Miedema's Pedigree Evaluation

Sires Handbook 2015 - www.sportingpost.co.za

Electrifying. That describes the descendants of the mare Electric Belle, a daughter of NZ Champion sire Sovereign Edition. Two of her daughters, both multiple winners, are now the dams and grandams of no less than eight Gr1 performers, from sprinters to middle distance winners, two of them champions. Added to this can be another four 'lesser' stakes horses.

Equally remarkable are the repeats of sires who got highclass winners from the family.

Electric Belle's stakes placed 6-time winning daughter Voltage is by Whiskey Road, a Nijinsky stallion whose dam is half sister to full brothers Graustark and His Majesty, both notable stallions.

Voltage is dam of stakes winning Gr1 runner-up Port Watch, a colt by Star Watch (male line Bletchingly, Biscay, Star Kingdom). Voltage also got Gr1 winning colt Drum, by Marauding (by Sir Tristram, out of mare by Biscay). Then came three daughters, all by Marauding.

Gr1 runner-up Tambour became dam of Australian Champion older horse Grand Armee, by Hennessy (male line Storm Cat, Storm Bird - both close kin to Whiskey Road's sire Nijinsky).

Non-winning daughter Volte became dam of Gr1 winner Dealer Principal, by Flying Spur (Danehill), and stakes placed Resistor, by Danehill (here, too, a link to Whiskey Road, as Danehill's dam is by His Majesty).

Three-time winning daughter Eldarin has a Gr3 winner and stakes placed winner, both by Redoute's Choice, who is by Danehill, and his second dam is by Nijinsky.

And lastly, Voltage is dam of Gr1 winning filly Anamato, by Redoute's Choice.

Beauty Belle, half sister to Voltage, is by Ideal Planet (male line Planet Kingdom, Star Kindom), and is a full sister to stakes winner of 13 races Roanoke Boy. Beauty Belle got Hong Kong champion sprinter Absolute Champion by Marauding, Gr1 winner Wylie Hall by Redoute's Choice, while a daughter produced a stakes horse by Manhattan Rain, who is a half brother to Redoute's Choice.

In the context of Wylie Hall's affinities as a stallion, elements from the sires noted above might well be significant.

A look at Redoute's Choice' pedigree and possible affinities.

This son of Danehill is kin-bred 3x2 Spring Adieu (by Buckpasser, and the grandam of Danehill) x Dancing Show (the grandam of Redoute's Choice, by Nijinsky). Dancing Show comes from a solid sire producing female line; her dam, by Sir Ivor (sire among others of Sir Tristram, noted earlier), is half sister to the mare Sex Appeal (by Buckpasser), dam of El Gran Senor and Northern Guest (by Northern Dancer). We note that NZ Derby winner Redoute's Dancer (highest rated 3yo of his year in NZ) is out of a mare by El Gran Senor, and also note that Sir Tristram (Sir Ivor - Sir Gaylord male line, and Selene (dam of Hyperion) female line) and Sir Tristram's son Zabeel feature prominently as sires of dams and second dams of Redoute's best runners. In this context, it is noted that Marauding is a son of Sir Tristram, and that Redoute's Choice' third dam is by Sir Ivor.

Redoute's Choice' best Gr1 progeny include successful Australian sire Snitzel, Australian champion 2yo & 3yo filly Miss Finland, and South African champion filly Majmu. Let's see.

Snitzel's grandam is by Storm Bird, who makes for a noted kin-group with Nijinsky, The Minstrel (and Storm Bird's son Storm Cat). Snitzel's bottom female line traces to the mare Glen Arvis, who is close kin to La Troienne tribe members, including Mr Busher, Baby League, Businesslike (2nd dam of Buckpasser).

Miss Finland's dam is by Woodman, whose dam is by Buckpasser, and comes from Buckpasser's female line. Miss Finland's grandam is by Sadler's Wells and her 4th dam by Mill Reef - these two stallions make for noted kin-links, through Bold Reason and Never Bend, sons of Lalun who is close kin to Buckpasser. Miss Finland's bottom female line goes to Queen Of Light (Borealis x Donatello mare) - the remote female line has the same origin as La Troienne.

Majmu is kinbred 3x3 Dancing Show x War Wind (close kin-elements are Nijinsky and Sir Gaylord). Majmu's grandam is by Smooth Performance, who is by Seattle Slew (double Buckpasser family line in his dam), out of Seasonal Pick Up - the latter by Nijinsky's 3-part brother The Minstrel, with a grandam who is half sister to Best In Show, which is Redoute's Choice female line.

WHERE TO NEXT

Wylie Hall's possible affinities might go in several ways, so if those can be combined, so much the better.

Firstly there are the kin-links to the kin-breeding from Redoute's Choice. This puts the spotlight on a number of options. There's Buckpasser, notably from Northern Guest (same female line as Redoute's Choice), National Assembly (close kin to Danehill), Lassie Dear (dam of Al Mufti, but widespread, notably AP Indy), Complete Warrior (damsire of Captain Al, by Al Mufti), Lalun as dam of Never Bend and Bold Reason, which leads to Sadler's Wells and Fairy King, and Never Bend (Mill Reef, Riverman, etc).

Then there's Nijinsky and his clan (The Minstrel, Storm Bird/Storm Cat), which leads to Dancing Champ (dam Mrs Peterkin kin-links to Buckpasser). Danehill should be included - an interesting one is his son Requiem, whose dam is a full sister to sire Grosvenor, by Sir Tristram out of a mare by Hermes. The grandam of Redoute's Choice' highest rated son Lankee Rupee (Timeform 121) is a 3-part sister by Zabeel (Sir Tristram) to Grosvenor and to the dam of Requiem. Danehill is very close kin to Caesour (the pair as damsire and sire in international Gr1 filly Dane Julia).

Secondly, there's Marauding. Combining his kin-links with those from Wylie Halls female line leads to Jallad, and much more generally to multiples of Hyperion & kin - notably through Flower Bowl (dam of His Majesty and Graustark, and grandam of Whiskey Road), Alycidon, Aureole (Hermes), Donatello, Sir Tristram (notably Grosvenor).

Elements from the female line of Danzig could count, notably leading to National Assembly (National Emblem), Antonius Pius (2nd dam by Mill Reef) - but Danzig is widespread and there must be many options to combine.

Marauding is sire of the second dam of Gimmethegreenlight, Yes She Can Cancan, by Biscay's son Canny Lad. The latter also is the damsire of Redoute's Choice. Yes She Can Cancan thus has a double of Biscay, and treble of Biscay's sire Star Kingdom.

The female line of Wylie Hall also is the one of Lady Maroof (Maroof, by Danzig), who is dam of highclass half brothers Star Empire (Second Empire) and Fabiani (Model Man). The third dams of Wylie Hall and Lady Maroof dams are half sisters by Hermes and Alcimides, who are close kin. Hermes is by Aureole, Alcimedes by Alycidon. Alcimides is half brother to Filipepi, which goes some way to explain Fabiani (who is by Model Man). Star Empire's sire Second Empire is by Fairy King (full brother to Sadler's Wells), his grandam by Welsh Pageant, a grandson of Queen Of Light.

PICK OF THE BUNCH

Suitable mares for Wylie Hall could include

  • kin-links to the kin-breeding from Redoute's Choice (leading to Buckpasser (notably Northern Guest, National Assembly, Lassie Dear), Complete Warrior (Captain Al), Lalun (Never Bend as in Mill Reef, Riverman, and Bold Reason as in Sadler's Wells, Fairy King); Nijinsky (notably Dancing Champ (!)) and close kin The Minstrel, Storm Bird/Storm Cat; Danehill (notably Requiem (!)), Caesour, etc.);
  • kin-links to elements from Marauding combined with the female line, leading to Jallad, and more generally multiple Hyperion (notably through Flower Bowl, dam of Graustark, His Majesty), Alycidon, Aureole (Hermes), Donatello (notably Queen Of Light descendants), Sir Tristram (notably Grosvenor));
  • kin-links to Danzig (notably National Assembly, National Emblem, Antonius Pius, Maroof - but widespread).
