Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Medal Count

Medal Count is a classic-placed graded stakes winner by the exceptional sire, Dynaformer, out of the graded stakes-performing Unbridled’s Song mare, Brisquette, also dam of the graded stakes-winning juvenile sprinter, Garden District.

Medal Count is out of a mare from the Fappiano branch of the Mr. Prospector line, but Mr. Prospector is back in the fifth generation of the pedigree here, and crossing Medal Count back over mares from the Mr. Prospector line should work well, especially since Dynaformer and his sons have already sired more than 40 stakes winners on this cross. Seven of these, three grade one, are out of mares by Seeking the Gold. Bred on the same cross as Seeking the Gold are Miswaki, the broodmare sire of a Dynaformer grade one winner, and Woodman. The cross of Dynaformer with a mare by Mr. Prospector son Carson City produced Kentucky Derby hero Barbaro, and other grade one-producing crosses over Mr. Prospector line mares are those with daughters of Kingmambo, Gone West, Distant ViewThunder Gulch and Artax (by Marquetry, a son of Conquistador Cielo). It might also be worth experimenting crossing Medal Count back over mares descending from Mr. Prospector via Fappiano sons RubianoQuiet American and Pentelicus.

Dynaformer has also enjoyed great success when bred to mares from the Northern Dancer line. From this male line, Dynaformer has sired grade one winners out of mares by Storm Bird and his son, Storm Cat, and out of mares from the NureyevNijinsky II and Deputy Minister branches, and graded winners out of mares descending from Northern Dancer through Danzig and his son DanehillSadler’s Wells and Dixieland Band.

Dynaformer has shown a marked affinity for mares from the Blushing Groom line, siring Champion Americain out of a mare by Arazi, and three stakes winners out of daughters of Rahy. There are Dynaformer grade one winners from both the Valid Appeal and Relaunch branches of the In Reality line. Out of mares from the Seattle Slew line, there is a Dynaformer line grade one winner out of a mare by Pulpit (by A.P. Indy), graded stakes winners out of mares by Williamstown (a three-quarters brother to Capote) and Seattle Slew himself, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Chief Seattle.

"Medal Count is as good of a horse as I've brought into the (Kentucky) Derby... He’s a son of Dynaformer, so going to stud, he could do a lot for the breed, especially one that can run on dirt. "
