Reader Q&A -- Pedigree Nicks with Barbadian Thoroughbred Bloodlines

Question: Hi Alan.  My named is Trevor. I have a mare in foal to a Mujadil son named is Toby's Dream.  His dam is Islandagore (Indian Ridge - Dancing Sunset, by Red Sunset).  My broodmare is Nostalgia she is by Nosferatu (a son Vice Regent) and her dam is Azallya (by Habitat). The pedigree is the same as Kingsgate Native.  Is it a good nick, Alan?


Alan's responseThank you for your question, Trevor. Both Toby's Dream (IRE) and Kingsgate Native (IRE) are by Mujadil out of Indian Ridge (IRE) mares. Mujadil has sired four stakes winners (including two group winners) out of Northern Dancer-line mares, but his success/opportunity rate with Northern Dancer-line mares has not been exceptional, and the cross is TrueNick rated D.
Kingsgate Native is a little more interesting, as his granddam is bred on the Northern Dancer/Habitat cross, as is Nostalgia. Mujadil is by a son of Northern Dancer out of a mare by Secretariat (half-brother to Sir Gaylord, the sire of Habitat) and that could help.
