Goldikova Going to Galileo

In the press conference following Goldikova's defeat in the 2011 Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. I), trainer Freddy Head indicated that owners Wertheimer et Frere would be sending the mare to Galileo next season. Of course, Goldikova has a group I-winning half sister, Galikova, by that sire, so it would seem a wise choice. As you'll see in the TrueNicks Enhanced Report below, the Galileo/Danzig cross is very strong, thanks mostly to Danehill mares. However, group I winner Lush Lashes is out of a mare bred similarly to Goldikova—by Anabaa out of a Blushing Groom line mare. (View report)


Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies' Turf (gr. II) winner Stephanie's Kitten will stay in training, but an interesting future mating could be Distorted Humor (TrueNicks,SRO), who has sired three stakes winners from three starters out of El Prado mares, and El Prado is the sire of Stephanie's Kitten's sire Kitten's Joy (TrueNicks,SRO).

Distorted Humor-Stephanie's Kitten

Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. I) winner Perfect Shirl has a very interesting pedigree background, being out of Illinois-bred Lady Shirl, who defied humble beginnings to become a top racemare and producer. A possible future mate could be Giant's Causeway (TrueNicks,SRO), who gets 12% stakes winners from starters from Sadler's Wells line mares. (View report)

Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (gr. I) winner Musical Romance was bred by Ocala Stud, who also bred successful sire Montbrook, who in turn sired last year's Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I) winner Big Drama. A combination of the two Sprint winners would be the definition of Florida speed, and although the Montbrook/Concorde's Tune cross hasn't been tried too often yet, it is already responsible for grade II winner Amen Hallelujah.

Big Drama-Musical Romance

Stopshoppingmaria, by More Than Ready (TrueNicks,SRO), was the runner-up in the Juvenile Fillies Turf for owner Mike Repole. She'll also stay in training but might one day be a mare for Repole's Uncle Mo (TrueNicks), who retires to Ashford. Uncle Mo's sire Indian Charlie (TrueNicks,SRO) has a very good strike rate with Halo line mares, and the mating could give Repole yet another top-class runner. (View report)

Uncle Mo-Stopshoppingmaria

Former Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. I) winner Midday will begin her broodmare career shortly, and she is certainly an easy candidate for the very top stallions in Europe and North America. If she returns to Europe, a potential mate could be Juddmonte's own Dansili. The mating would create a Danzig/Danzig cross—something seen increasingly often in Australia—and Dansili already has three stakes horses from eight starters out of Danzig line mares. (View report)
