Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Liaison
A grade one-winning two-year-old and multiple graded stakes winner by Indian Charlie – also sire of Uncle Mo – Liaison is a stakes sire with his first crop two-year-olds in 2017.
Liaison has first-crop stakes winner Bronx Beauty out of a mare by Rockport Harbor. He is a son of Unbridled’s Song, from the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector that has also enjoyed success under Indian Charlie via Unbridled, Empire Maker, Quiet American and Cryptoclearance. Numerous other branches of Mr. Prospector have enjoyed success under Indian Charlie and his sons, including Champions out of mares from the Carson City and Afleet branches; grade one winners out of mares descending via Elusive Quality and Speightstown (both by Gone West) and Crafty Prospector, and stakes winners out of mares descending via Fusaichi Pegasus, Gulch, Conquistador Cielo/Marquetry, Seeking the Gold, Smart Strike and Miswaki/Black Tie Affair.
Indian Charlie line stallions have enjoyed considerable success with mares from the Northern Dancer line. The Storm Cat branch has produced Champion Nyquist out of a mare by Forestry and a grade one winner out of a mare by Stormy Atlantic, and there are also stakes winners out of mares by Giant’s Causeway and his brother Freud. Indian Charlie has proved to be very well-suited by mares from the Vice Regent/Deputy Minister branch, including through Touch Gold and French Deputy. Indian Charlie also sired four stakes winners out of mares by Dixieland Band, and has enjoyed success with Northern Dancer through Danzig.
From the A.P. Indy branch of Seattle Slew, Indian Charlie and his sons have grade one winners out of mares by A.P. Indy and his son Malibu Moon, with A.P. Indy line stallions Bernardini and Tapit also looking interesting here. There are other Indian Charlie line stakes winners out of mares descending from Seattle Slew through Boston Harbor (by Capote), Slewacide and Seattle Song.
Indian Charlie’s brilliant Champion Two-Year-Old Uncle Mo is out of a mare by Arch, a son of Kris S. (from the Roberto branch of Hail to Reason), and there are also Indian Charlie line stakes winners out of mares from this line out of mares by Dynaformer and Repriced. Indian Charlie has an exceptional record with mares from the Halo branch of Hail to Reason, including a champion out of a mare by Saint Ballado and a stakes winner out of a mare by that horse’s brother, Devil’s Bag. Halo should also be good through More Than Ready. The cross with Mt. Livermore and his son Orientate has provided two more graded stakes winners, and there is a graded stakes winner by Indian Charlie out of a mare by Holy Bull.
