Alan Porter Pedigree Analysis for Jimmy Creed

A grade one winning sprinter, Jimmy Creed is by Champion Sire Distorted Humor, out of grade one winner and multiple grade one producer Hookedonthefeelin.

The pedigree of Jimmy Creed is free of the strain of Seattle Slew , a line that has been a remarkably prolific one under Distorted Humor, including Champion Funny Cide and grade one winners Any GivenSaturday and Lilacs and Lace. linebreed to Seattle Slew. Successful sources of Seattle Slew for Distorted Humor and his sons include A.P. Indy (sire of PulpitMalibu MoonMineshaftGolden MissileOld TriesteStephen Got Even, CongratsFlatter, and Jump Start, and grandsons Tapit andSky Mesa),

Slew o’ GoldSlew City Slew and his son, Evansville SlewCapote (sire of Boston Harbor andMatty G), Avenue of FlagsSlewpy and Slewacide.

On their sire’s side, Jimmy Creed’s offspring will be free of Northern Dancer at four generats, and Distorted Humor has met with success when crossed over numerous branches of Northern Dancer. He has a particularly good strike-rate with Sadler's Wells, and particularly through El Prado, also suggesting Medaglia d'OroKitten's JoyArtie Schiller and Horse Chestnut. We can also note success with Northern Dancer through Deputy Minister and his sons Silver DeputyTouch Gold,Dehere and Awesome Again. Mares by Northern Dancer grandson Dixie Union will create an intriguing inbreeding pattern, and is already broodmare sire of a stakes winner by a son of Distorted Humor.

The cross of Distorted Humor and his sons with mares descending from Turn-to through Roberto has been an excellent one, providing Champion and Kentucky Derby (gr. I) and Preakness Stakes (gr. I) victor I’ll Have Another out of a mare by Arch (by Kris S., also sire of Prized and You and I)as well as stakes winners out of mares by Red RansomLear Fan, and Dynaformer. From the Halo branch ofTurn-to there are stakes winners by Distorted Humor out of mares by More Than Ready and his sire,Southern Halo, which also suggests trying Halo through Devil’s Bag (sire of Devil’s His Due,Twilight Agenda and Diablo) and Saint Ballado (available through Captain Bodgit,SweetsouthernsaintYankee VictorStraight Man and Flame Thrower). Distorted Humor also has a stakes winner from the Best Turn branch of Turn-to from a daughter of Cox’s Ridge (sire of Out of PlaceSultry Song and Vanlandingham), as well as a grade one winner out of a mare by Cox’s Ridgehimself.

From the In Reality line, Distorted Humor has a grade one winner out of a mare by a son of Valid Appeal (sire of Successful AppealValid Wager and Valid Expectations), as well as a stakes winner from a mare by Relaunch, and a graded winner from a mare by that horse's son, Cee's Tizzy (sire ofTiznow). Relaunch through Officer might also be attractive.  In Reality through Known Fact would also be interesting, duplicating the excellent mare, Tamerett. Distorted Humor has also done extremely well when crossed over mares descending from Damascus through Personal Flag and his sire, Private Account (available through Private TermsCorporate ReportSecret Hello,Unaccounted ForValley Crossing and Afternoon Deelites) and there is also a stakes winner from this line out of mare by Gilded Time.  We might also consider mares by Broad Brush (sire ofConcern and Include), broodmare sire of Distorted Humor's multiple graded stakes winner Justenuffhumor.

Although Distorted Humor is a grandson of Mr. Prospector, he and his sons have enjoyed a measure of success when crossed back over Mr. Prospector line mares. Distorted Humor and his sons have enjoyed success with mares by Unbridled (by Fappiano), and his sons Unbridled's Song (sire ofSongandaprayerEven The Score and Rockport Harbor) and Grindstone (sire of Birdstone), which also suggests daughters of Empire Maker and Broken VowFappiano is also sire of Quiet American, whose son Real Quiet is sire of the grade one winning half-sister to Jimmy Creek, and broodmare sire of a stakes winner out of a mare by a son of Distorted Humor. Real Quiet’s sonMidnight Lute, is sire of a grade one winner out of a sister to the dam of Jimmy Creed.

Distorted Humor’s  grade one winner Flower Alley is out of a mare by Lycius, and his graded winner Sharp Humor out of a mare by Hansel (a son of Woodman, whose also represented in the dam of a Distorted Humor line stakes winner through Timber Country). Other Mr. Prospector line horses to appear as broodmares sires of Distorted Humor stakes winners include Half TermStreet Cry,Mining and Thunder Gulch. It would also be interesting to introduce Mr. Prospector through Gone West, giving linebreeding to Tamerett, and this could be achieved with daughters of Elusive Quality(broodmare sire of a Distorted Humor line stakes winner, and sire of Smarty Jones), Speightstown,Grand SlamMr. Greeley and Proud Citizen.

From the same Raise a Native line as Mr. Prospector, Distorted Humor has three stakes winners out of mares by sons of Alydar (by Raise a Native), two out of mares by Saratoga Six, and Alydarthrough Turkoman should also work well. There is also Distorted Humor stakes winner out of a mareMajestic Prince (a product of a similar Raise a Native/Ribot cross to Distorted Humor's sire Forty Niner), a strain that could be introduced through Maria's Mon and his son Monarchos.
