Record-setting three-time G1 winner by industry-shaping sire of sires PULPIT.

One of the fastest sprinters in recent history: Six-furlong stakes record in 1:07 3/5 winning the 72-year-old Bing Crosby (G1) at Del Mar — just .05 seconds off the track record; Seven furlongs in 1:21 flat winning the Triple Bend (G1) at Santa Anita.

Three straight G1 wins in 2016, including Santa Anita Sprint Championship (G1).

Joined Eclipse Champion Runhappy as the only 3-time G1-winning sprinters in a single season this decade.

—Chris McGrath, TDN

Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Lord Nelson

A spectacular multiple Grade 1-winning sprinter, Lord Nelson ranks as the fastest son of sire of sires Pulpit.

The Pulpit/Deputy Minister cross has produced Grade 1 winners out of mares by Deputy Minister and Dehere, and stakes winners from daughters of Awesome Again (sire of Ghostzapper), Silver Deputy (sire of Posse) and Touch Gold. Deputy Minister is a son of Northern Dancer, and the Storm Cat branch of Northern Dancer has enjoyed exceptional success under Pulpit-line stallions with six Grade 1 scorers. This includes Grade 1 winners from daughters of Hennessy (broodmare sire of two Pulpit-line Grade 1 winners); Tabasco Cat (broodmare sire of two Pulpit-line Grade 1 winners); and Sir Cat, with other stakes winners out of mares by Giant’s Causeway and his brother FreudHarlan’s HolidayForest WildcatTale of the CatBluegrass Cat and Forestry.

The cross with mares from the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer has enjoyed success through Belong to MeChief’s CrownBoundaryOrpen and Danzig Connection. It could also be worth considering mares by War FrontExchange RateHonor Grades and Langfuhr. Out of mares from the Sadler’s Wells line, there is a Pulpit line Grade 1 winner out of a mare by El Prado, and a stakes winner out of a mare by that horse’s son, Medaglia d’OroWild Again is by Icecapade—a three-quarter relative to Northern Dancer—and there are eight stakes winners—three Grade 1 winners—on the cross of Pulpit-line stallions over Wild Again-line mares.

Lord Nelson is inbred to Mr. Prospector, as is Pulpit’s outstanding stallion son Tapit. We can note that stallions inbred to Mr. Prospector have sired 25 Grade 1 winners out of mares supplying a third cross of Mr. Prospector. With Mr. Prospector appearing 3×3 in the pedigree of Lord Nelson, we would tend to look for broodmare sires by sons or grandsons of Mr. Prospector. The Unbridled branch of Mr. Prospector has done well under Pulpit, with Grade 1 winners out of mares by Unbridled himself and Unbridled’s Song, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Empire Maker. Other branches of Mr. Prospector to enjoy success under Pulpit are Carson CityForty NinerGone WestGulch (sire of Thunder Gulch) and Smart Strike. Mr. Prospector also appeals through Fusaichi Pegasus and Lemon Drop Kid (out of a three-quarter sister to A.P. Indy).

The cross of Pulpit-line stallions over mares from the Relaunch branch of In Reality has produced stakes winners out of mares by Honour and Glory and Bertrando, and would be particularly interesting here through Tiznow. There are also two stakes winners—one graded by Pulpit-line stallions out of mares by In Excess and another out of a mare by Indian Charlie. Mares by More Than Ready would be intriguing here as he is bred on a reverse cross from the dam of Lord Nelson.
