Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Warrior's Reward

A grade one winning sprinter by young sire sensation Medaglia d’Oro, Warrior’s Reward is very similarly bred to Galileo, the horse widely regarded as the World’s leading sire. Warrior’s Reward made a tremendous start with his first crop two-year-old runners in 2014, with his first eight starters winning their debuts in maiden special weight competition, and five of his starters earning black-type.

Warrior’s Reward pedigree indicated that he would be a intriguing cross for mares from the Seattle Slew line, and he already has a graded stakes performer out of a mare by Pulpit, and a stakes placed performer out of a mare by that horse’s sire, A.P. Indy (also broodmare sire of Medaglia d’Oro’s Kentucky Oaks victress Plum Pretty). This would suggest mares by Pulpit sons Sky Mesa and Tapit, and by A.P. Indy sons such as Malibu Moon, Mineshaft, Congrats, Flatter, Stephen Got Even, Old Trieste, Jump Start and Aptitude. From other branches of Seattle Slew, Medaglia d’Oro, has two stakes winners out mares by Capote (sire of Boston Harbor and Matty G), and one out of a mare by his three-quarters brother, Williamstown, a stakes winner out of a mare by Fast Play (half-brother to Warrior’s Reward’s broodmare sire, Seeking the Gold). Warrior’s Reward should do well over mares by Slew o‘ Gold, Septieme Ciel, Slew City Slew, Doneraile Court (broodmare sire of a Medaglia d’Oro graded stakes winner), and Vindication (who looks particularly interesting here).

Ten of Medaglia d’Oro’s stakes winners are out of Mr. Prospector line mares. Warrior’s Reward himself is bred on the cross of a Northern Dancer line stallion over a mare by Mr. Prospector son, Seeking the Gold, but Exchange Rate and Pure Prize, who are both bred on this cross have done very well when crossed back over Mr. Prospector line mares. We can also note that there are already more than 120 stakes winners with Seeking the Gold in the sire, and Mr. Prospector in the dam, 21 of them grade one winners. It would be very interesting to cross Warrior’s Reward with mares descending from Mr. Prospector through other Mr. Prospector/Buckpasser crosses, such as Woodman, Miswaki (broodmare sire of a stakes winner by El Prado, as is his son Black Tie Affair) and Mining ( broodmare sire of a stakes winner by El Prado).

Medaglia d’Oro himself now has 24 stakes winners out of Mr. Prospector line mares, including the magnificent Rachel Alexandra out of a mare by Roar, a son of Forty Niner, and also a graded winner out of a mare by Forty Niner son  Distorted Humor.  Forty Niner could also be brought in though Coronado’s Quest, Editor’s Note, End Sweep, Twining, Tactical Advantage, Trippi, Flower Alley and Sharp Humor). There is a Medaglia d’Oro stakes winner out of a mare by Mr. Prospector son Gulch, and two grade one winners out of a mare by that horse’s son, Thunder Gulch. We can also note a Medaglia d’Oro grade one winner from a mare by Gone West , and a stakes winner out of that horse’s son, Grand Slam (also suggesting mares by Mr. Greeley, Speightstown, Elusive Quality and Proud Citizen); a grade one winner out of a mare by Lemon Drop Kid (and a stakes winner out of a mare by his sire, Kingmambo); graded stakes winners out of mares by Smoke Glacken and Jade Hunter; and stakes winners out of mares by Machiavellian (sire of Street Cry), Smart Strike (whose son, English Channel could work well), Marquetry (sire of Artax), Crafty Prospector and Fortunate Prospect. Mr. Prospector sons, Geiger Counter and Numerous (broodmare sire of an El Prado line stakes winner), give inbreeding to the family of Sadler’s Wells. Warrior’s Reward should also be particularly good with any Mr. Prospector/Northern Dancer crosses.

Mr. Prospector is by Raise a Native, and is bred on very similar lines to that horse’s son, Alydar. Medaglia d’Or has sired grade one winner Champagne d’Oro out of a mare by Saratoga Six, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Alysheba (duplicating the family of Sadler’s Wells). El Prado has a grade one winner out of a mare by Alydar son, Strike the Gold, and a graded winner out of a mare by Criminal Type. Warrior’s Reward should also be very well-suited by mares by Alydar son, Easy Goer (a parallel Raise a Native/Buckpasser cross to Seeking the Gold). Another product of the same Raise a Native/Buckpasser cross who could be tried here is Wavering Monarch (sire of Maria’s Mon).

Medaglia d’Oro is already showing a strong affinity for certain branches of the Hail to Reason line. He already has stakes winners from the Halo branch out of mares by Jolie’s Halo, and Devil His Due (by Devil’s Bag), and Saint Ballado. Warrior’s Reward should also work well with mares by More Than Ready (by Southern Halo, the broodmare sire of a Medaglia d’Oro stakes winner). From the Roberto branch of Hail to Reason, Medaglia d’Oro has a graded stakes winner out of mares by Kris S., whose son, Prized is broodmare sire of El Prado grade one winner, Paddy O’Prado, and who could be attractive through Arch. El Prado also has stakes winners out of mares by Roberto sons Lear Fan (duplicating the family of Sadler’s Wells), Dynaformer and Silver Hawk, and Red Ransom could also be considered. The Stop the Music branch of Hail to Reason is also promising here, and Medaglia d’Oro has a stakes winner out of a mare by Tethra (by Cure the Blues, also sire of the second dams of Rachel Alexandra and Gabby’s Golden Gal). American Chance (by Cure the Blues) should also work well here too.

Medaglia d’Oro has sired a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Blushing John, a stakes winner Our Golden Dream out of a mare by Rahy (and graded winner from a mare by Rahy son, Fantastic Light), and a stakes winner mare by Rainbow Quest, the all being sons of Blushing Groom. This also suggests trying Blushing Groom through Mt. Livermore (sire of Orientate and Housebuster) or Runaway Groom (sire of Cherokee Run; grandsire of Kafwain and Yonaguska).

From his own Northern Dancer sire line, Medaglia d’Oro is sire of grade one winner Gabby’s Golden Gal out of a mare by Ashkalani, who is turn is by Soviet Star, a son of Nureyev (three-parts-brother to Warrior’s Reward’s male line ancestor, Sadler’s Wells). Meanwhile, Warrior’s Reward has 2014 two-year-old stakes winner, Strawberry Baby, out of a mare by Nureyev son Theatrical. There is also a Medaglia d’Oro stakes winner out of a mare by Dehere. He is a Northern Dancer/Secretariat cross, where El Prado is a Northern Dancer line horse out of a mare by a son of Sir Gaylord (half-brother to Secretariat). Another Northern Dancer/Secretariat cross that might work here is Storm Cat, with likely sources including Giant’s Causeway, Stormy Atlantic, Stormin Fever, Tale of the Cat, Storm Boot, Forest Wildcat (broodmare sire of a Medaglia d’Oro stakes winner), Forestry, Tabasco Cat, Mountain Cat and Menifee. From the Icecapade branch of Nearctic, Medaglia d’Oro has a graded winner out of a mare by Clever Trick, and the brilliant Atreides out of a mare by Wild Rush (by Wild Again, also sire of Offlee Wild, Wild Event, Whiskey Wisdom, Vicar and Milwaukee Brew).

Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Warrior's Reward

A grade one winning sprinter by young sire sensation Medaglia d’Oro, Warrior’s Reward is very similarly bred to Galileo, the horse widely regarded as the World’s leading sire. Warrior’s Reward made a tremendous start with his first crop two-year-old runners in 2014, with his first eight starters winning their debuts in maiden special weight competition, and five of his starters earning black-type.

Warrior’s Reward pedigree indicated that he would be a intriguing cross for mares from the Seattle Slew line, and he already has a graded stakes performer out of a mare by Pulpit, and a stakes placed performer out of a mare by that horse’s sire, A.P. Indy (also broodmare sire of Medaglia d’Oro’s Kentucky Oaks victress Plum Pretty). This would suggest mares by Pulpit sons Sky Mesa and Tapit, and by A.P. Indy sons such as Malibu Moon, Mineshaft, Congrats, Flatter, Stephen Got Even, Old Trieste, Jump Start and Aptitude. From other branches of Seattle Slew, Medaglia d’Oro, has two stakes winners out mares by Capote (sire of Boston Harbor and Matty G), and one out of a mare by his three-quarters brother, Williamstown, a stakes winner out of a mare by Fast Play (half-brother to Warrior’s Reward’s broodmare sire, Seeking the Gold). Warrior’s Reward should do well over mares by Slew o‘ Gold, Septieme Ciel, Slew City Slew, Doneraile Court (broodmare sire of a Medaglia d’Oro graded stakes winner), and Vindication (who looks particularly interesting here).

Ten of Medaglia d’Oro’s stakes winners are out of Mr. Prospector line mares. Warrior’s Reward himself is bred on the cross of a Northern Dancer line stallion over a mare by Mr. Prospector son, Seeking the Gold, but Exchange Rate and Pure Prize, who are both bred on this cross have done very well when crossed back over Mr. Prospector line mares. We can also note that there are already more than 120 stakes winners with Seeking the Gold in the sire, and Mr. Prospector in the dam, 21 of them grade one winners. It would be very interesting to cross Warrior’s Reward with mares descending from Mr. Prospector through other Mr. Prospector/Buckpasser crosses, such as Woodman, Miswaki (broodmare sire of a stakes winner by El Prado, as is his son Black Tie Affair) and Mining ( broodmare sire of a stakes winner by El Prado).

Medaglia d’Oro himself now has 24 stakes winners out of Mr. Prospector line mares, including the magnificent Rachel Alexandra out of a mare by Roar, a son of Forty Niner, and also a graded winner out of a mare by Forty Niner son  Distorted Humor.  Forty Niner could also be brought in though Coronado’s Quest, Editor’s Note, End Sweep, Twining, Tactical Advantage, Trippi, Flower Alley and Sharp Humor). There is a Medaglia d’Oro stakes winner out of a mare by Mr. Prospector son Gulch, and two grade one winners out of a mare by that horse’s son, Thunder Gulch. We can also note a Medaglia d’Oro grade one winner from a mare by Gone West , and a stakes winner out of that horse’s son, Grand Slam (also suggesting mares by Mr. Greeley, Speightstown, Elusive Quality and Proud Citizen); a grade one winner out of a mare by Lemon Drop Kid (and a stakes winner out of a mare by his sire, Kingmambo); graded stakes winners out of mares by Smoke Glacken and Jade Hunter; and stakes winners out of mares by Machiavellian (sire of Street Cry), Smart Strike (whose son, English Channel could work well), Marquetry (sire of Artax), Crafty Prospector and Fortunate Prospect. Mr. Prospector sons, Geiger Counter and Numerous (broodmare sire of an El Prado line stakes winner), give inbreeding to the family of Sadler’s Wells. Warrior’s Reward should also be particularly good with any Mr. Prospector/Northern Dancer crosses.

Mr. Prospector is by Raise a Native, and is bred on very similar lines to that horse’s son, Alydar. Medaglia d’Or has sired grade one winner Champagne d’Oro out of a mare by Saratoga Six, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Alysheba (duplicating the family of Sadler’s Wells). El Prado has a grade one winner out of a mare by Alydar son, Strike the Gold, and a graded winner out of a mare by Criminal Type. Warrior’s Reward should also be very well-suited by mares by Alydar son, Easy Goer (a parallel Raise a Native/Buckpasser cross to Seeking the Gold). Another product of the same Raise a Native/Buckpasser cross who could be tried here is Wavering Monarch (sire of Maria’s Mon).

Medaglia d’Oro is already showing a strong affinity for certain branches of the Hail to Reason line. He already has stakes winners from the Halo branch out of mares by Jolie’s Halo, and Devil His Due (by Devil’s Bag), and Saint Ballado. Warrior’s Reward should also work well with mares by More Than Ready (by Southern Halo, the broodmare sire of a Medaglia d’Oro stakes winner). From the Roberto branch of Hail to Reason, Medaglia d’Oro has a graded stakes winner out of mares by Kris S., whose son, Prized is broodmare sire of El Prado grade one winner, Paddy O’Prado, and who could be attractive through Arch. El Prado also has stakes winners out of mares by Roberto sons Lear Fan (duplicating the family of Sadler’s Wells), Dynaformer and Silver Hawk, and Red Ransom could also be considered. The Stop the Music branch of Hail to Reason is also promising here, and Medaglia d’Oro has a stakes winner out of a mare by Tethra (by Cure the Blues, also sire of the second dams of Rachel Alexandra and Gabby’s Golden Gal). American Chance (by Cure the Blues) should also work well here too.

Medaglia d’Oro has sired a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Blushing John, a stakes winner Our Golden Dream out of a mare by Rahy (and graded winner from a mare by Rahy son, Fantastic Light), and a stakes winner mare by Rainbow Quest, the all being sons of Blushing Groom. This also suggests trying Blushing Groom through Mt. Livermore (sire of Orientate and Housebuster) or Runaway Groom (sire of Cherokee Run; grandsire of Kafwain and Yonaguska).

From his own Northern Dancer sire line, Medaglia d’Oro is sire of grade one winner Gabby’s Golden Gal out of a mare by Ashkalani, who is turn is by Soviet Star, a son of Nureyev (three-parts-brother to Warrior’s Reward’s male line ancestor, Sadler’s Wells). Meanwhile, Warrior’s Reward has 2014 two-year-old stakes winner, Strawberry Baby, out of a mare by Nureyev son Theatrical. There is also a Medaglia d’Oro stakes winner out of a mare by Dehere. He is a Northern Dancer/Secretariat cross, where El Prado is a Northern Dancer line horse out of a mare by a son of Sir Gaylord (half-brother to Secretariat). Another Northern Dancer/Secretariat cross that might work here is Storm Cat, with likely sources including Giant’s Causeway, Stormy Atlantic, Stormin Fever, Tale of the Cat, Storm Boot, Forest Wildcat (broodmare sire of a Medaglia d’Oro stakes winner), Forestry, Tabasco Cat, Mountain Cat and Menifee. From the Icecapade branch of Nearctic, Medaglia d’Oro has a graded winner out of a mare by Clever Trick, and the brilliant Atreides out of a mare by Wild Rush (by Wild Again, also sire of Offlee Wild, Wild Event, Whiskey Wisdom, Vicar and Milwaukee Brew).
