Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for ArchArchArch

Archarcharch was a stakes winner at two, and a grade one winner and multiple graded stakes winner at up to nine furlongs at three. His potentially brilliant racing career was cut short by an injury suffered in the Kentucky Derby (gr. I), a race in which the runner-up had been defeated by Archarcharch in the Arkansas Derby (gr. I) on their previous start. Archarcharch, is a son of Arch, sire of four champions, including Blame and Arravale. He is out of a multiple graded stakes performer and multiple stakes producer, and his granddam is a grade one winning daughter of Nureyev.

Archarcharch is out of a mare by a son of Mr. Prospector, but inbreeding to the broodmare sire line of a stallion often proves to be a successful technique. We can also note that Arch has sired 13 stakes winners out of Mr. Prospector line mares. Particularly good branches of Mr. Prospector include Seeking the Gold (broodmare sire of two Arch grade one winners), Miswaki (whose son, Black Tie Affair, is broodmare sire of a graded stakes winner by Arch), Mining, Aldebaran, Chester House, Miner’s Mark and Our Emblem, who all combine Mr. Prospector with Buckpasser (as does Woodman, the broodmare sire of Archarcharch). Similarly, Not For Love is a three-parts-brother to Woodman. Other branches of Mr. Prospector that have worked under Arch and his sire, Kris S., include Carson City (sire of City Zip), Damister, Gone West and his sons, Zafonic and Grand Slam (also suggesting such as Mr. Greeley, Elusive Quality, Speightstown and Proud Citizen), Unbridled’s Song, Smart Strike, Gulch, Crafty Prospector, Conquistador Cielo (sire of Marquetry, grandsire of Artax) and Jade Hunter, and Homebuilder. Archarcharch would also be good with Numerous, Chequer, and Geiger Counter (all Mr. Prospector horses who are bred on very similar lines to the dam of Archarcharch, and give linebreeding to the family of Thong). Kingmambo (broodmare sire of an Arch stakes winner, and sire of Lemon Drop Kid) and Northern Afleet are Mr. Prospector/Nureyev crosses, like the dam of Archarcharch, and Afleet Alex (by Northern Afleet) is a reverse cross to Archarcharch. There is also stakes winner by Fusaichi Pegasus, out of the granddam of Archarcharch.

Arch carries a line of Alydar, but with Archarcharch owning linebreeding to Raise a Native through the similarly-bred Mr. Prospector and Alydar, bringing in more Alydar could prove worthwhile. Arch already has a stakes winner out of a mare by Alysheba (interesting here, as his broodmare sire is a brother to the granddam of Nureyev, sire of the second dam of Archarcharch).

Crossed over mares from the Northern Dancer line, Arch has sired stakes winners out of mares by Dixieland Band (sire of Dixie Union), Theatrical and Atticus (by Nureyev), and Storm Bird, his son, Storm Cat There is also a grade one winner out of a mare by Storm Cat son Tabasco Cat, and a stakes winner out of a mare by High Yield. Overall, Archarcharch appears a good prospect for most Storm Cat line mares with Stormy Atlantic and Storm Boot (both from the family of Nureyev), Pure Prize (out of a mare by Seeking the Gold) and Sir Cat and Vision and Verse (out of mares by Private Account, whose dam is a sister to the dam of Woodman) looking good prospects. Introducing Northern Dancer through Sadler’s Wells – the broodmare sire of a stakes winner by Arch – would be worthwhile considering here as he is a three-parts-brother to Nureyev. Sadler’s Wells can be found in the U.S. through El Prado (sire of Medaglia d’Oro, Kitten’s Joy and Artie Schiller) and Horse Chestnut, and would also be exceptionally interesting through Galileo. Arch is out of mare by Northern Dancer son, Danzig, but has sired a graded two winner out of a mare by Danzig stallion Ascot Knight, Belong to Me, Boundary (sire of Big Brown), Chief’s Crown, Pine Bluff, Danehill and Green Desert (a three-parts-brother to the dam of Arch). Exchange Rate is another Danzig son who could be interesting here. From the Nijinsky II branch of Northern Dancer, Arch has a stakes winner out of a mare by Lomitas, and this strain could also be introduced through Royal Academy, Strawberry Road and Sky Classic.

Kris S. line stallions have done well with mares descending from Blushing Groom, and Arch has stakes winners on the cross, out of daughters of Rahy and Housebuster (by Mt. Livermore). This line could also be brought in through Arazi, Blushing John, Candy Stripes, and Runaway Groom, the sire of Cherokee Run (himself sire of a stakes winning half-brother to Archarcharch).

The cross of Kris S. line stallions over In Reality line mares has been a prolific one with more than 20 stakes winners. This includes two grade one winners by Arch out of mares by Known Fact, and grade one winners out of mares from the Relaunch and Valid Appeal branches of this sire line. Sources of Relaunch including Skywalker (whose son, Bertrando, is broodmare sire of a grade one winner by a Kris S. line stallion, and who himself is sire of Officer), Cee’s Tizzy (sire of Tiznow), Waquoit, and Honour and Glory (sire of Put It Back). Valid Appeal sources include Successful Appeal, Valid Expectations, and Valid Wager.

Archarcharch is a Hail to Reason line stallion, but his sire, Arch has a stakes winner from this line out of a mare by Devil’s Bag (by the Hail to Reason son, Halo), himself sire of Devil His Due and Diablo, and there is also an Arch stakes winner out of a mare by Devil’s Bag’s brother, Saint Ballado (sire of Saint Liam, Sweetsouthernsaint, Captain Bodgit and Flame Thrower). More Than Ready is a Halo grandson, bred on a parallel cross to Archarcharch, and could be interesting here.

There is a graded stakes winner by Arch out of a mare by Seattle Slew, and a stakes winner by Seattle Slew out of the granddam of Archarcharch. In addition, a daughter of Slew o’Gold (by Seattle Slew), is dam of a classic placed Arch stakes winner from this immediate family. A.P. Indy is a Seattle Slew son bred somewhat similarly to Slew o’Gold, and he could be brought in through Pulpit (broodmare sire of a multiple graded stakes winner by Arch, and his son Tapit and Sky Mesa), Malibu Moon, Mineshaft, Flatter, Congrats, Old Trieste (broodmare sire of a stakes winner by Arch), Stephen Got Even, Golden Missile and Jump Start

From very limited opportunities with mares from the Sharpen Up line Arch is sire of a grade one winner out of a mare by Kris, and two stakes winners, one graded, out of mares by Diesis (brother to Kris). Arch has also sired two stakes winners out of four starters from mares from the Buckpasser line, both by L’Enjoleur. Archarcharch might also work well with Buckpasser through Buckaroo (sire of Lite the Fuse, Spend a Buck, and Montbrook; grandsire of Chapel Royal and Outofthebox) and Silver Charm.

Sources of Relaunch including Skywalker (whose son, Bertrando, is broodmare sire of a grade one winner by a Kris S. line stallion, and who himself is sire of Officer), Cee’s Tizzy (sire of Tiznow), Waquoit, and Honour and Glory (sire of Put It Back). Valid Appeal sources include Successful Appeal, Valid Expectations, and Valid Wager.

Archarcharch is a Hail to Reason line stallion, but his sire, Arch has a stakes winner from this line out of a mare by Devil’s Bag (by the Hail to Reason son, Halo), himself sire of Devil His Due and Diablo, and there is also an Arch stakes winner out of a mare by Devil’s Bag’s brother, Saint Ballado (sire of Saint Liam, Sweetsouthernsaint, Captain Bodgit and Flame Thrower). More Than Ready is a Halo grandson, bred on a parallel cross to Archarcharch, and could be interesting here.

There is a graded stakes winner by Arch out of a mare by Seattle Slew, and a stakes winner by Seattle Slew out of the granddam of Archarcharch. In addition, a daughter of Slew o’Gold (by Seattle Slew), is dam of a classic placed Arch stakes winner from this immediate family. A.P. Indy is a Seattle Slew son bred somewhat similarly to Slew o’Gold, and he could be brought in through Pulpit (broodmare sire of a multiple graded stakes winner by Arch, and his son Tapit and Sky Mesa), Malibu Moon, Mineshaft, Flatter, Congrats, Old Trieste (broodmare sire of a stakes winner by Arch), Stephen Got Even, Golden Missile and Jump Start

From very limited opportunities with mares from the Sharpen Up line Arch is sire of a grade one winner out of a mare by Kris, and two stakes winners, one graded, out of mares by Diesis (brother to Kris). Arch has also sired two stakes winners out of four starters from mares from the Buckpasser line, both by L’Enjoleur. Archarcharch might also work well with Buckpasser through Buckaroo (sire of Lite the Fuse, Spend a Buck, and Montbrook; grandsire of Chapel Royal and Outofthebox) and Silver Charm.
