Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Mitole

A spectacular multiple Grade One-winning sprinter/miler Mitole may be the fastest dirt-running representative of the Storm Cat line at stud today.

Eskendereya the sire of Mitole has followed the lead of Giant’s Causeway crossing well with Mr. Prospector line mares. His multiple graded stakes winner Eskenformoney is out of a mare by Not For Love, and he also has stakes winners from daughters of Lemon Drop Kid, Carson City; Strong Hope (by Grand Slam) and Mr. Greeley – both from the Gone West line, which also suggests Elusive QualitySpeightstown and Proud CitizenThunder Gulch; and Victory Gallop (by Cryptoclearance, who might also be brought in through Candy Ride). Cryptoclearance is from the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector, which has enjoyed success under Giant’s Causeway through Unbridled’s Song, Quiet American (grandsire of Midnight Lute, who could be interesting here) and RubianoOther branches of Mr. Prospector worthy of consideration include Northern Afleet and his son, Afleet; Seeking the GoldStreet Cry and his sons Street Sense and Street Boss; Smart Strike; Distorted Humor and Fusaichi Pegasus.

Eskendereya’s brilliant Grade One-winning son, Mor Spirit, is out of a mare by Dixie Union, from the Dixieland Band branch of Northern Dancer. From the Deputy Minister branch of Northern Dancer, there are Eskendereya stakes winners out of mares by Deputy Minister himself and his son, Dehere, suggesting crossing over Awesome Again (sire of Ghostzapper) and Touch Gold.

There is an Eskendereya stakes winner out of a mare by Dayjur, a son of Danzig, a strain that might be introduced through Belong To MePolish Numbers, Langfuhr, War Chant, Hard Spun, Exchange Rate and War Front. From the Sadler’s Wells line there is a stakes winner out of a mare by Kitten’s Joy (by El Prado, also sire of Medaglia d’Oro and Artie Schiller), and there is also a stakes winner out of a mare by Unusual Heat, who is by Sadler’s Wells’ three-quarters brother, Nureyev.

Eskendereya is out of a mare by Seattle Slew, and crossing back over that line through A.P. Indy and sons such as Pulpit (sire of Tapit and Sky Mesa), Jump Start, Malibu Moon, MineshaftCongrats and Flatter.

Out of mares from the Halo line, Eskendereya has stakes winner from a mare More Than Ready, and Halo could also be introduced through Devil’s Bag (sire of Devil His Due and Diablo) and Saint Ballado (sire of Saint LiamYankee Victor and Sweetsouthernsaint) whose sister, Champion Glorious Song, is in the pedigree of Giant’s Causeway.
