Refining a Nick

When Langfuhr retired to stud, he looked a very logical horse to try with Mr. Prospector-line mares. Not only was he a son of Danzig, a line that has done well with Mr. Prospector, but he also carried Fleet Nasrullah, a close relative to the dam of Mr. Prospector.

Not surprisingly, Langfuhr has been tried extensively with Mr. Prospector-line mares, and the cross has produced six stakes winners, including Canadian Horse of the Year Wando. The catch is that Langfuhr has had more than 145 starters out of Mr. Prospector-line mares, and so the cross comes out as a D rating, having performed little better than half as well as opportunity.

However, there are refinements to this cross that are ahead of the game, and one of these is with mares by Mr. Prospector's son, Mining. Out of seven foals and seven starters with dams by Mining, Langfuhr has sired three stakes winners, including the recent Delta Mile winner Beta Capo. It's worth noting that Mining is a Mr. Prospector/Buckpasser cross, as is Woodman, broodmare sire of the aforementioned Langfuhr champion Wando, and that horse's stakes-winning sibling, Six Sexy Sisters.

This is an interesting read...Langfuhr is LRon's sire when I did the nicking on this in December for Babe in the Woods and LR, it came up as a C.Did it tonite and it came up as an A++. Langfuhr/Woodman cross proving to be pretty solid.
