Tied Together -- Birdstone, Medaglia d'Oro, and Musket Man

Several recent posts inspire us to take a quick look at some similarities -- perhaps coincidental -- between the pedigrees of Birdstone (TrueNicks,SRO), Medaglia d'Oro (TrueNicks,SRO) , and Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) third Musket Man.

As we've mentioned (here), Birdstone's sire Grindstoned is out of a mare by Drone (whose half-sister Lady Capulet was by a son of Sir Gaylord), and his granddam is by Silent Screen.

Medaglia d'Oro's granddam is also by Silent Screen. In fact, she's inbred 3 x 4 to Silent Screen's grandam Sunday Evening, who was by Eight Thirty -- this is interesting as he is a genetic relative to War Relic, who we've said (here) was closely combined with a sister in the dam line of Rachel Alexandra.

Musket Man is by Yonaguska (TrueNicks,SRO) (who carries Drone and his genetic relative Halo).  Additionally, his fourth dam is half-sister to Silent Screen, and his fifth dam is a half-sister to the fifth dam of Medaglia d'Oro.
