Alan Porter breeding analysis for Dominus

A multiple grade two winner who captured graded stakes on dirt and turf, Dominus is by two-time leading sire and major sire of sires, Smart Strike. He has made a very promising start with a trio of stakes winners in his first crop.

Dominus has a stakes winner out of a mare by Northern Dancer line sire, Freud, a son of Storm Cat, and a brother to Giant’s Causeway, suggesting other Storm Cat line sires. The cross of Smart Strike over Northern Dancer through Danzig line mares has been an outstanding one, headed by multiple Champion and classic winner Lookin at Lucky (out of a mare by Belong to Me), with other successful sources including DayjurBoundaryChief’s CrownPolish NumbersLangfuhr and Ascot Knight. The cross with Deputy Minister – which produced Horse of the Year Curlin – has been equally impressive, including a stakes winner by Dominus out of a mare by Touch Gold, and other Smart Strike line stakes winners from daughters of Awesome AgainSilver Deputy, French Deputy and Salt Lake. Smart Strike and his sons have also excelled with Nijinsky II line mares, including through Sky Classic (broodmare sire of a Smart Strike line classic winner) and Strawberry Road.

Smart Strike also has Champion English Channel out of a mare by Theatrical (by Nureyev); his son Curlin has a classic winner out of a mare by Royal Anthem, a son of Theatrical, and there is also a Smart Strike graded winner out of a mare by Nureyev son Stravinsky. The cross of Smart Strike line stallions with mares descending from Nureyev’s three-quarters brother Sadler’s Wells (available through El Prado, the sire of Medaglia d’Oro and Kitten’s Joy). We could also consider the Icecapade branch of Northern Dancer’s sire, Nearctic, through Wild Again.

Dominus has a stakes winner out of a mare by Value Plus, a son of Unbridled’s Song, a horse who is also broodmare sire of a Smart Strike line graded winner.

The cross of Smart Strike with A.P. Indy line mares has produced a trio of grade one winners, one from a daughter of Malibu Moon, and graded winners from mares by Bernardini and Pulpit. Smart Strike has also shown an affinity for the Blushing Groom line, particularly through Rahy, and he also has four stakes winners out of Pleasant Colony mares.
