Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Danza

Grade one-winning and Kentucky Derby (gr. I)-placed Danza is by Street Boss – the fastest son of the great sire Street Cry – out of a multiple grade one winner producer Champagne Royale.

Danza has a double of Mr. Prospector, but this will be in the fifth generation of his offspring, and Street Boss has done well when crossed back over Mr. Prospector line mares. He has graded stakes winners out of mares by Hussonet and Woodborough, a son of Woodman, and stakes winners out of mares by Woodman’s three-quarters brother, Not For Love, and from daughters of Lemon Drop Kid and Mutakddim (by Seeking the Gold). Street Cry, the sire of Street Boss, has a grade one winner out of a mare by Coronado’s Quest (by Forty Niner), and a stakes winner out of a mare by CryptoclearanceCryptoclearance is by Fappiano, and that line has worked under Street Cry through Quiet American (grandsire of Midnight Lute), Grindstone (sire of Birdstone) and his sire Unbridled (which also suggests considering Unbridled’s Song and sons, as well as Broken Vow and Empire Maker).

Street Boss already has three stakes winners out of mares from the Storm Cat branch of Northern Dancer, and there are also two graded winners by Street Cry and his sons out of mares by Storm Cat’s close relative, Royal Academy. There is a Street Boss stakes winner out of a mare descending from Northern Dancer through Fairy King, a brother to Sadler’s Wells (sire of El Prado and grandsire of Medaglia d’Oro and Kitten’s Joy). Street Boss has a stakes winner out of a mare by Dixie Union (by Dixieland Band), giving a similar cross to the one that produced Street Sense and New Year’s Day for Street Cry. Looking at other branches of Northern Dancer,  Street Cry and sons have six stakes winners, including a grade one winner, out of mares from the Nureyev line; the Danzig branch has done well under Street Cry, including Street Boss, and it could be worth crossing Danza back over mares from his own broodmare sire line, that of Deputy Minister.

From A.P. Indy line mares, Street Boss has classic winner Cathryn Sophia out of a Mineshaft mare, stakes winners from daughters of Pulpit and Golden Missile, and a graded winner from a daughter of A.P. Indy himself. He also has grade one winner Decked Out from a daughter of You and I, from the Kris S. branch of the Roberto line.
