Alan Porter analysis for FLAT OUT

The all-time leading North American earner from the A.P. Indy line, Flat Out is a grade one winner from a mile to a mile-and-a-quarter.

Flat Out is by A.P. Indy’s rapidly-rising son, Flatter, a brother to Leading Freshman Sire Congrats. An example of the cross of his sire with Northern Dancer line mare, Flat Out should cross well back over mares from the line. Flatter has done particularly well with mares from the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer including siring stakes winners from daughters of Honor Grades, Danzig Connection, Langfuhr, Military and Ghazi, suggesting trying mares by such as Pine Bluff, Belong to Me, Exchange Rate, Hard Spun and War Front. His brother Congrats has particularly flourished with mares descending from Storm Cat, with grade one winners from daughters of Forestry and Tactical Cat, and stakes winners from daughters of Catienus and Harlan’s Holiday. Out of a mare by Theatrical (by Northern Dancer line stallion, Nureyev), Flatter is sire of the brilliant Taris. From the Deputy Minister line, Flatter has the top-class Upstart out of a mare by Touch Gold, which would suggest mares by such as Awesome Again, Dehere, French Deputy and Salt Lake. Congrats, the brother to Flatter, has two grade one winners out of Storm Cat line mares, from daughters of Forestry and Tactical Cat, and stakes winners from daughters of Harlan’s Holiday, Catienus and Adcat. This would suggest trying daughters of such as Tale of the Cat, Storm Boot, Giant’s Causeway, Hennessy (sire of Johannesburg and Henny Hughes), Stormy Atlantic and Stormin Fever (both giving inbreeding to Seattle Slew), Forest Wildcat, Cat Thief, and Tabasco Cat. Northern Dancer’s three-quarters relative, Icecapade, is sire grandsire of Wild Rush, the broodmare sire of Congrats’ grade one winner

Flatter has proven exceptionally effective with mares from the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector, including a grade two winner Apart out of a mare by Unbridled, and stakes winners out of mares by Pentelicus, Quiet American and Grindstone (sire of Birdstone). Unbridled might also be introduced through Broken Vow, Empire Maker and Unbridled’s Song (sire of Dunkirk, Even the Score, First Defence, Old Fashioned, Rockport Harbor and Songandaprayer). In addition Flatter and Congrats have stakes winners out of mares descending from Mr. Prospector via Afleet, Woodman and his three-quarters brother Not For Love, Thunder Gulch and Golden Gear (both by Gulch), Distorted Humor (by Forty Niner, also available through Coronado’s Quest, Twining, Tactical Advantage, Roar, Gold Fever and Trippi) and Distinctive Pro. There is also a Flatter stakes winner descending from Mr. Prospector’s sire, Raise a Native, through Majestic Light (sire of Wavering Monarch, and grandsire of Maria’s Mon).

Out of a mare from the Halo branch of the Hail to Reason line, Flatter is sire of multiple graded stakes winner Tar Heel Mom from a daughter of Sunny’s Halo (sire of Dispersal), and a stakes winner from a daughter of More Than Ready (by Southern Halo). This also suggests trying the Halo strain through Saint Ballado and Devil’s Bag and their sons. The Roberto branch of Hail to Reason has worked well under both Flatter and Congrats, with stakes winners out of mares by Red Ransom, and You and I, Prized and Kissin Kris (all by Kris S.). Turn-to, sire of Hail to Reason, is also represented in the male-line of the dams of Flatter and Congrats stakes winners via Smarten, and Eltish and Sultry Song (both by Cox’s Ridge).

There are stakes winners for Flatter and Congrats from In Reality line out of mares by Valid Appeal (sire of Successful Appeal, Valid Expectations and Valid Wager) and Bertrando (by Skywalker, a son of Relaunch, a strain that can also be brought in through Honour and Glory, Cee’s Tizzy, Tiznow and Officer).

Raja Baba comes from the female line as A.P. Indy, and there are stakes winners by Flatter and Congrats out mares by Raja Baba’s son, Well Decorated and grandson Notebook.

The all-time leading North American earner from the A.P. Indy line, Flat Out is a grade one winner from a mile to a mile-and-a-quarter.

Flat Out is by A.P. Indy’s rapidly-rising son, Flatter, a brother to Leading Freshman Sire Congrats. An example of the cross of his sire with Northern Dancer line mare, Flat Out should cross well back over mares from the line. Flatter has done particularly well with mares from the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer including siring stakes winners from daughters of Honor Grades, Danzig Connection, Langfuhr, Military and Ghazi, suggesting trying mares by such as Pine Bluff, Belong to Me, Exchange Rate, Hard Spun and War Front. His brother Congrats has particularly flourished with mares descending from Storm Cat, with grade one winners from daughters of Forestry and Tactical Cat, and stakes winners from daughters of Catienus and Harlan’s Holiday. Out of a mare by Theatrical (by Northern Dancer line stallion, Nureyev), Flatter is sire of the brilliant Taris. From the Deputy Minister line, Flatter has the top-class Upstart out of a mare by Touch Gold, which would suggest mares by such as Awesome Again, Dehere, French Deputy and Salt Lake. Congrats, the brother to Flatter, has two grade one winners out of Storm Cat line mares, from daughters of Forestry and Tactical Cat, and stakes winners from daughters of Harlan’s Holiday, Catienus and Adcat. This would suggest trying daughters of such as Tale of the Cat, Storm Boot, Giant’s Causeway, Hennessy (sire of Johannesburg and Henny Hughes), Stormy Atlantic and Stormin Fever (both giving inbreeding to Seattle Slew), Forest Wildcat, Cat Thief, and Tabasco Cat. Northern Dancer’s three-quarters relative, Icecapade, is sire grandsire of Wild Rush, the broodmare sire of Congrats’ grade one winner

Flatter has proven exceptionally effective with mares from the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector, including a grade two winner Apart out of a mare by Unbridled, and stakes winners out of mares by Pentelicus, Quiet American and Grindstone (sire of Birdstone). Unbridled might also be introduced through Broken Vow, Empire Maker and Unbridled’s Song (sire of Dunkirk, Even the Score, First Defence, Old Fashioned, Rockport Harbor and Songandaprayer). In addition Flatter and Congrats have stakes winners out of mares descending from Mr. Prospector via Afleet, Woodman and his three-quarters brother Not For Love, Thunder Gulch and Golden Gear (both by Gulch), Distorted Humor (by Forty Niner, also available through Coronado’s Quest, Twining, Tactical Advantage, Roar, Gold Fever and Trippi) and Distinctive Pro. There is also a Flatter stakes winner descending from Mr. Prospector’s sire, Raise a Native, through Majestic Light (sire of Wavering Monarch, and grandsire of Maria’s Mon).

Out of a mare from the Halo branch of the Hail to Reason line, Flatter is sire of multiple graded stakes winner Tar Heel Mom from a daughter of Sunny’s Halo (sire of Dispersal), and a stakes winner from a daughter of More Than Ready (by Southern Halo). This also suggests trying the Halo strain through Saint Ballado and Devil’s Bag and their sons. The Roberto branch of Hail to Reason has worked well under both Flatter and Congrats, with stakes winners out of mares by Red Ransom, and You and I, Prized and Kissin Kris (all by Kris S.). Turn-to, sire of Hail to Reason, is also represented in the male-line of the dams of Flatter and Congrats stakes winners via Smarten, and Eltish and Sultry Song (both by Cox’s Ridge).

There are stakes winners for Flatter and Congrats from In Reality line out of mares by Valid Appeal (sire of Successful Appeal, Valid Expectations and Valid Wager) and Bertrando (by Skywalker, a son of Relaunch, a strain that can also be brought in through Honour and Glory, Cee’s Tizzy, Tiznow and Officer).

Raja Baba comes from the female line as A.P. Indy, and there are stakes winners by Flatter and Congrats out mares by Raja Baba’s son, Well Decorated and grandson Notebook.
