Alan Porter’s 2020 Breeding Analysis for Mitole

A spectacular Eclipse Award winning Champion Sprint Mitole may be the fastest dirt-running representative of the Storm Cat line at stud today. He is by a son of Giant’s Causeway, and his dam is by Indian Charlie out of an undefeated two-year-old stakes winner.

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 (sire of City Zip, Pollard’s Vision, Five Star Day and Cuvee); Strong Hope (by Grand Slam) and Mr. Greeley – both from the Gone West line, which also suggests Elusive Quality (sire of Quality Road), Speightstown (sire of Munnings) and Proud Citizen; Thunder Gulch; Hawk Wing (by Woodman); and Victory Gallop (by Cryptoclearance, who might also be brought in through Candy Ride and Twirling Candy). Cryptoclearance is from the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector, which has enjoyed success under Giant’s Causeway through Unbridled’s Song (by Unbridled), Quiet American (grandsire of Midnight Lute, who could be interesting here), Rubiano and Roy. Unbridled and Unbridled’s Song could also be introduced through Broken Vow, Empire Maker, Grindstone, Birdstone, Rockport Harbor, First Defence, Old Fashioned, Half Ours, Dunkirk, Even The Score and Songandaprayer.

Other branches of Mr. Prospector worthy of consideration include Northern Afleet and his son, Afleet; Seeking the Gold, the sire of Mutakddim, Petionville and Cape Town; Street Cry, sire of Street Sense and Street Boss; Smart Strike (sire of Curlin, Lookin At Lucky and English Channel), Distorted Humor (sire of Maclean’s Music and Jimmy Creed) 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. Dixie Union is sire of Union Rags, and other sources of this strain would include Citidancer, Overanalyze and High Cotton. 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), Silver Deputy 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 Me, Polish 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 (also available through Stravinsky and Theatrical). From the Nijinsky II branch of Northern Dancer, has graded winner Isabella Sings out of a mare from the Nijinsky II which might be introduced through Royal Academy and Sky Classic.

Eskendereya is out of a mare by Seattle Slew, and that suggests crossing back over that line through A.P. Indy and sons such as Pulpit (sire of Tapit and Sky Mesa), Jump Start, Malibu Moon, Mineshaft, Congrats 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 Liam, Yankee Victor and Sweetsouthernsaint) whose sister, Champion Glorious Song, is in the pedigree of Giant’s Causeway.

Mitole is out of a mare by Indian Charlie, and it could be worth returning that strain through his son, of Uncle Mo, or considering bringing in his In Excess, who is by Siberian Express, also sire of Siberian Summer, the broodmare sire of two Giant’s Causeway classic performers. This is branch of the Caro line, and Maria’s Mon who is out of a Caro mare, and he has worked under Giant’s Causeway. His son, Monarchos, is also broodmare sire of a Giant’s Causeway line stakes winner and might be interesting here, while Super Saver mares also appeal.

The Giant’s Causeway line has done well with a number of Relaunch line broodmare sires, including Honour and Glory (sire of Put It Back), Cee’s Tizzy, Tiznow and Bertrando (sire of Officer).
