Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Temple City
Grade one performer Temple City is by Dynaformer out of a half-sister to Malibu Moon. Living up to those credentials, he’s rapidly established himself as a leading young sire.
Dynaformer developed a strong affinity for Mr. Prospector line mares, and Temple City is following this trend, with the wonderful multiple grade one winner Miss Temple City and graded winners Pricedtoperfection and Startup Nation out of mares by Artax and Wagon Limit from the Conquistador Cielo branch. His Hollywood Derby (gr. I) victor, Annals of Time is out of a mare by Distant View. Other branches of Mr. Prospector that have produced notable winners for Dynaformer include Gone West, whose son, Mr. Greeley, is broodmare sire of a Temple City stakes winner; Seeking the Gold (broodmare sire of three Dynaformer grade one winners); Kingmambo; Carson City; Woodman; Thunder Gulch; Miswaki (sire of Black Tie Affair); Hussonet and Chester House.
Dynaformer has also enjoyed great success when bred to mares from the Northern Dancer line (Temple City is out of a Northern Dancer line mare, but crossing a stallion over mares from his own broodmare sire line often works well). Temple City himself is sire of stakes winner Saratoga Heater out of a mare by Sale Lake (from the Deputy Minister branch), and 2017 two-year-old graded winner Archaggelos out of a mare by Nureyev. Out of mares from other branches of Northern Dancer, Dynaformer has sired grade one winners out of mares by Storm Bird and his son, Storm Cat; Dynaformer’s sire, Roberto, combines very well with Northern Dancer through Dixieland Band; and Dynaformer has also enjoyed success with Northern Dancer through Nijinsky II and Sadler’s Wells.
The Dynaformer cross with Blushing Groom has resulted in a champion out of a mare by Arazi, and three stakes winners out of daughters of Rahy. Dynaformer has sired grade one winners out of mares by the In Reality sons Relaunch and Valid Appeal. The cross of Dynaformer over A.P. Indy has been a grade one- producing one, and from the same Seattle Slew sire line, Temple City has multiple graded winner Bolo out of a mare by Chief Seattle. We can also note a Temple City stakes winner out of a mare by Saint Ballado (by Halo).
