Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Cross Traffic

Grade one-winning miler Cross Traffic is by Unbridled’s Song who already has seven individual grade one siring sons out of multiple grade one-winning speedster Stop Traffic.

The distaff side of Cross Traffic’s pedigree means that he is free of many of the strains that have proved successful under Unbridled’s Song and his sons. The cross with Storm Cat line mares has provided nearly 50 Unbridled’s Song line stakes winners, including daughters of Storm Cat himself, as well as such as ForestryForest WildcatHennessy (and his son Johannesburg) and Giant’s CausewayNorthern Dancer, the grandsire of Storm Cat, has also been good through Deputy Minister, including via Awesome AgainTouch GoldSilver DeputyDehereSalt LakeFrench Deputy and Service Stripe.

Crossed over mares from the Danzig branch there are Unbridled’s Song line stakes winners out of mares by LangfuhrPolish NumbersGhaziBoundaryBelong to MePine BluffCorridor Key and Danehill, with such as Exchange RateWar Front and Hard Spun also appealing. There are also Unbridled’s Song line stakes winners out of mares descending from Northern Dancer through Dixieland BandSadler’s Wells (sire of El Prado, and grandsire of Medaglia d’Oro and Kitten’s Joy); and Nijinsky II.

Unbridled’s Song line sires have flourished with In Reality line mares, and on this cross come grade one winners out of mares by Valid AppealTaylor’s FallsBertrando and Kyle’s Our Man, and graded winners out of mares by Known Fact and Tiznow. Unbridled enjoyed a strong affinity with mares by Caro, and in turn, Unbridled’s Song has a grade one winner out of a mare by a son of Caro and a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Caro son Siberian Express (by In Excess, sire of Indian Charlie). Out of mares from the Blushing Groom line, Unbridled’s Song and sons have stakes winners out of mares descending through Mt. Livermore (and his sons, Housebuster and Orientate), Rahy and Runaway Groom (sire of Cherokee Run).

Unbridled’s Song and his sons have also begun to find success when bred back over mares from Unbridled’s Song’s own Mr. Prospector line, including through Gone WestForty Niner (whose son Distorted Humor, is broodmare sire Unbridled’s superstar Arrogate), Lemon Drop KidSmart StrikeMiswakiSeeking the Gold and Thunder Gulch.
