Ashado Booked to Street Cry
Written by admin | Feb 06, 2008 |
Darley announced this week that two-time champion Ashado, whose $9-million price at Keeneland's November sale in 2005 was then a record for a broodmare or broodmare prospect sold at public auction, will be bred this year to Street Cry (IRE) (TrueNicks, SRO) (a stallion who is subscribed to TrueNicks complimentary hypothetical mating reports). This will be one of the more interesting matings of the year with the result being an inbreeding to the good sire Halo and containing a number of duplications of the outstanding broodmare Almahmoud.
The Street Cry/Ashado mating is an A+ TrueNicks mating and it is worth taking a look at. Why? It is a good example of looking at the pedigree in its totality. While the sire line/broodmare sire line is an A-level rating, and thus worth considering on that basis alone, there are also some other elements in the pedigree that look quite desirous especially when one looks at the pedigree of Street Cry's grade I winning filly Cry and Catch Me (see attachments).
