Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Bolt d’Oro

Bolt d’Oro is a brilliant multiple grade one winning two-year-old by Medaglia d’Oro out of a multiple stakes producing A.P. Indy mare.

Medaglia d’Oro has enjoyed tremendous success when crossed with Mr. Prospector line mares, and out of mares from this line. Medaglia d’Oro’s magnificent daughters, Rachel Alexandra and Songbird, are out of Forty Niner line mares, and there are also two Medaglia d’Oro grade one winners out of mares from that horse’s son, Distorted Humor (sire of multiple stakes winner Sonic Mule out of the dam of Bolt d’Oro). From other branches of Mr. Prospector, there are Medaglia d’Oro line grade one winners out of mares by Machiavellian (sire of Street Cry), Gone West (who is sire of Elusive QualityMr. GreeleyGrand Slam and Speightstown), Thunder Gulch (sire of Point Given), Lemon Drop Kid and Seeking the Gold. There are also graded winners from daughters of Smart StrikeJade Hunter and Smoke Glacken, and stakes winners from daughters of MiswakiMarquetryWoodman and Trippi, and from the Fappiano branch, daughters of Victory Gallop and Unbridled’s Song.

Bolt d’Oro is out of a mare by A.P. Indy, a son of Seattle Slew, and he should work well under other branches of Seattle Slew. Those that have provided the dams of Medaglia d’Oro stakes winners include Vindication, Capote (sire of Boston Harbor), Avenue of Flags, WilliamstownFast Play and Doneraile Court. It also might be feasible to consider mares by A.P. Indy grandsons such as TapitSky MesaDialed InAlgorithms (sire of a stakes winner from this family), Discreetly MineStay Thirsty and To Honor and Serve.

Medaglia d’Oro has a grade one and a grade two winner out of mares by Kris S. (sire of Arch) and a stakes winner out of a mare by his son Rock Hard Ten, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Dynaformer, all from the Roberto branch of Hail to Reason. From the Halo branch of Hail to Reason, Medaglia d’Oro has a graded stakes winners out of a mare by Devil His Due (by Devil’s Bag, a brother to Saint Ballado), and from the Stop the Music branch, he has a stakes winner out of a mare by Cure the Blues, also sire of the second dam of Rachel Alexandra.

From his own Northern Dancer line, Medaglia d’Oro has enjoyed success with the Danzig branch, with a champion from a Danehill mare and a grade one winner from a Belong to Me mare. We might also consider daughters of War Front (sire of two stakes winners from Bolt d’Oro’s family), Hard SpunExchange Rate and War Chant (broodmare sire of a Medaglia d’Oro graded winner). Medaglia d’Oro is a Sadler’s Wells line horse, and he has a grade one winner out of a mare by Ashkalani, from the male line of Nureyev, a three-quarters brother to Sadler’s Wells, and there is also a stakes winner out of a mare by Nureyev, and Theatrical. There has also been success form Medaglia d’Oro with Blushing Groom line mares, including via Rahy and Runaway Groom.
