F-T July: First Crop Profile #5

This is our final profile of first crop offerings at the upcoming Fasig-Tipton July Yearlings sale. Click here for a complete list of Fasig-Tipton July TrueNicks reports.

Hip# 130 – Discreet Cat – Tia Lea, by Songandaprayer (TrueNicks B+)

Generally he has been disappointing with Mr. Prospector but Discreet Cat’s sire, Forestry (TrueNicks,SRO), has found success with Champion sire Fappiano (he is a reverse cross to Forestry’s granddam), and Discreet Cat’s granddam is by Believe It, a three-quarters relative to Unbridled’s granddam. There is just a pile of the Tartan Farm/Genter combination of Rough’n Tumble and Aspidistra behind this pedigree in various combinations, and we do like the way this pedigree is put together.

Hip# 132 – Any Given Saturday – Tiz Twilight, by Tiznow (TrueNicks A++)

The cross of leading sire Distorted Humor (TrueNicks,SRO) with mares by Relaunch and his sons is a good one, and there is already a graded-placed two-year-old from the first crop of Distorted Humor son Sharp Humor (TrueNicks,SRO) out of a mare by Tiznow (TrueNicks,SRO). Any Given Saturday (TrueNicks,SRO) is going to be particularly interesting with Relaunch as his third dam is a half sister to the granddam of Relaunch, so we like the way that this pedigree was put together. Additionally Any Given Saturday’s grandsire, Forty Niner, is a Raise a Native/Ribot cross, like Majestic Light, sire of the second dam of this yearling.

Hip# 141 – Political Force – West Coast Kitty, by Bertrando (TrueNicks A++)

The mare, a sister to graded I winner Unfurl the Flag, is inbred 3 x 3 to Relaunch. You'd have to think that this might be interesting with Political Force (TrueNicks,SRO), whose pedigree features two daughters of In Reality, the sire of Relaunch. The real twist is that one of those daughters is Relaunch’s stakes winning sister Moon Glitter, the dam of Political Force’s own broodmare sire, Glitterman.

        Hip #132 stands out the best ! The others have a dosage index a little too high though,alot of people dont pay much attention to that ! By the way , when is your next " Just For Fun " question ? I got to the other one too late :(

The bottom line of # 142 features Prince John, one of the all time greats as a broodmare sire.  I am not sure about the inbreeding of Foggy Note.  I always like the female inbreeding and foggy Note has a dynamite pedigree but the In Reality line can have some conformation issues.  Repeating this so many times gives me pause for concern.
