Alan Porter Analysis for Shakin It Up

Shakin It Up is a grade one-winning sprinter, and multiple graded stakes winner, by Champion Midnight Lute, out of a daughter of world high-weighted filly, Silverbulletday. 

The Storm Cat branch of Northern Dancer has good potential here. Shakin It Up’s graded stakes-winning three-quarters brother Govenor Charlie is by Midnight Lute out of a daughter of Storm Cat, and there is also a graded stakes winner by Midnight Lute out of a mare by Storm Cat grandson, Johannesburg. Among the sons of Storm Cat that have produced stakes winners for Shakin It Up’s sire line stallions are Forest WildcatCat ThiefForestryGiant’s CausewayMenifee (by Harlan, also sire of Harlan’s Holiday), Tabasco Cat and Tale of the Cat. Midnight Lute’s dual grade one winner, Midnight Lucky, is out of a mare by Citidancer, who is by the Northern Dancer stallion, Dixieland Band. Midnight Lute is a grandson of Quiet American, and his sire line has also enjoyed success with Northern Dancer through Danzig

Over Mr. Prospector line mares, Midnight Lute has sired Queen’s Plate hero, Midnight Aria, and graded winner Gimme Da Lute (out a Gone West line mare). We can note that Midnight Lute’s grandsire, Quiet American, has also reacted positively to combining with Mr. Prospector, through Carson CitySeeking the GoldAfleetConquistador CieloSmart Strike and Distorted Humor. Midnight Lute has sired juvenile stakes winner Midnight Ballet out of a mare by Unbridled’s Song, a son of Unbridled, a Fappiano son with a similar background to Quiet American.

Stallions frequently do well when crossed back over their broodmare sire line. In this case, Shakin It Up is out of mare by a son of Seattle Slew, and we can note a Midnight Lute stakes winner out of a mare by Seattle Slew son A.P. Indy. 

Midnight Lute’s graded winner, Tiz Midnight, is out of a mare by Tiznow, from the Relaunch branch of In Reality, and his classic-placed son, My Lute, is out of a mare from the Valid Appeal branch. He also has a stakes winner out of a mare by Holy Bull (sire of Macho Uno). He also has stakes winners out of mares by the Buckpasser line stallions Silver Charm and Montbrook.
