Alan Porter’s 2020 Breeding Analysis for Palace

The highest-earning son of the prolific sire, City Zip, sprint-star Palace won six stakes, four graded, and two grade one.

With his first crop, two-year-olds of 2019, Palace already has stakes winner Chacha Real Smooth. He is out of a mare by Yes It’s True (by Is It True), also the broodmare sire of a City Zip stakes winner. Yes It’s True is also sire of Yesbyjimminy and The Big Beast. This is the Raja Baba line that is also represented by Notebook.

City Zip has been extremely successful with mares from the Storm Cat line, getting graded stakes winner City To City out of a mare by Storm Cat himself, graded stakes winner Acting Zippy out of a mare by Future Storm, and grade one winner Collected out of a mare by Johannesburg (by Hennessy, also sire of Henny Hughes; and grandsire of Scat Daddy). He also has stakes winners out of mares by Stormin Fever, Forest Wildcat (sire of Wildcat Heir), Tactical Cat and Stormy Atlantic. This would encourage trying daughters of such as Giant’s Causeway (sire of First Samurai) and his brother Freud (broodmare sire of a stakes winner by a son of City Zip), Forestry (sire of Discreet Cat and Shackleford), Tale of the Cat (sire of Lion Heart), Yankee Gentleman, Tabasco Cat, Mountain Cat, Pure Prize, Bernstein, Bluegrass Cat, Harlan (sire of Menifee and Harlan’s Holiday), Storm Boot, Sir Cat and Catienus.

Out of mares from the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer, City Zip has stakes winners from daughters of Langfuhr, Lure, Ascot Knight and Polish Numbers. This suggests trying daughters of Belong to Me, Boundary (sire of Big Brown), Dayjur, Pine Bluff, Honor Grades, War Chant, Hard Spun, Exchange Rate and War Front.

City Zip has two stakes winners out of mares by Dixieland Band, and he has also sired multiple graded stakes winner Workin For Hops from a daughter of Citidancer, and graded stakes winner Hot City Girl out of a mare by Hook and Ladder. Other sons of Dixieland Band include Dixie Union, Chimes Band, Dixieland Heat, Bowman’s Band and Dixie Brass.

City Zip is half-brother to the brilliant Ghostzapper, a son of Awesome Again (by Deputy Minister), and City Zip has already sired graded stakes winner Gleam of Hope out of a mare by Vice Regent (sire of Deputy Minister), as well as stakes winners out of mares Deputy Minister and his son, Touch Gold. From this line, it might also pay to try daughters of Silver Deputy (sire of Posse, Badge of Silver and Spring At Last), Dehere, Salt Lake, Forest Camp, French Deputy and Service Stripe.

City Zip has the multiple graded stakes winner Alert Bay out of a mare by Dushayantor, a son of the Northern Dancer line stallion, Sadler’s Wells. In the U.S. Sadler’s Wells might be introduced through El Prado (sire of Medaglia d’Oro, Kitten’s Joy and Artie Schiller) and Horse Chestnut.

The cross of City Zip out of mares descending from Icecapade – a three-quarters relative to Northern Dancer – through daughters of Phone Trick (by Clever Trick) has produced two stakes winners, and a there is also a stakes winner by a son of City Zip out of mare by the Phone Trick horse, Intidab. Phone Trick is also sire of Caller I.D., Mazel Trick and Favorite Trick.

City Zip’s Champion Sprinter, Work All Week, is out of a mare by the Roberto stallion, Repriced. The Roberto strain might also be tried through Lear Fan, Dynaformer (whose son, Purim, is sire of a stakes winner out of a City Zip mare), Red Ransom and Kris S. (sire of Arch, Prized and You and I) and Silver Hawk.

City Zip sired three stakes winners, including grade one winner Improbable out of A.P. Indy mares, and there are also stakes winners by a son of City Zip out of a mares by Mineshaft (sire of Discreetly Mine and Dialed In) and Pulpit (sire of Tapit and Sky Mesa This would encourage trying daughters of Malibu Moon, Bernardini, Flatter, Congrats, Jump Start, Majestic Warrior and Stephen Got Even.

Roberto is a Hail to Reason line stallion, and from the Halo branch of that line, City Zip has graded stakes winner Ready For Rye out of a mare by More Than Ready, as well as a stakes winner out of a mare by Devil’s Bag (sire of Devil His Due). There is also a graded stakes winner by a son of City Zip out of a mare by Saint Ballado, a brother to Devil’s Bag, and sire of Saint Liam, Captain Bodgit, Sweetsouthernsaint and Yankee Victor. City Zip has also sired Champion Dayatthespa out of a mare by Doc’s Leader, a son of the Hail to Reason horse, Mr. Leader, and a stakes winner out of mare by Play On, by Stop the Music (also sire of Cure the Blues and grandsire of American Chance).

City Zip carries Blushing Groom through his sire, Carson City, and he and his sons have 12 stakes winners with Blushing Groom inbreeding. Out of Blushing Groom line mares, he has sired a stakes winner out of a mare by Cherokee Run (sire of Yonaguska, Kafwain and War Pass), and has undefeated graded stakes winner Run Away and Hide, out of a daughter of that horse’s sire, Runaway Groom. He also has multiple graded stakes winner Unzip Me out of a mare by Arazi (sire of Congaree). Blushing Groom might also be introduced through Rahy and Mt. Livermore (sire of Orientate, Housebuster and Peaks and Valleys).

City Zip is out of a mare by Relaunch, but he has already sired grade one winner Personal Diary out of a mare by Relaunch line stallion Tiznow (by Cee’s Tizzy, and himself sire of Tiz Wonderful) and a stakes winner by Relaunch son Honour and Glory (sire of Put It Back), and Relaunch could also be brought in through Skywalker, Bertrando and Officer. There is also a City Zip stakes winner out of a mare by Glitterman, whose dam is a sister to Relaunch.

City Zip has two stakes winners one graded out of mares by With Approval; two stakes winners, one graded out of mares by Meadowlake; graded stakes winners out of mares by Brief Ruckus and Katahaula County, both by Bold Ruckus, also sire of Highland Ruckus, Beau Genius, Bold Executive, Demaloot Demashoot and Kiridashi; a stakes winner out of a mare by Holy Bull (sire of Macho Uno and a stakes winner out of a mare by Include (by Broad Brush).

Palace is a Mr. Prospector/Mr. Prospector cross, but the Mr. Prospector strain will be in the fourth and fifth generation of his offspring. City Zip has eight stakes winners out of Mr. Prospector line mares, and Palace might be cautiously tried over mares by grandsons of Mr. Prospector, with proven crosses including Distorted Humor – broodmare sire of City Zip graded winner Reneesgotzip; Thunder Gulch, the broodmare sire of two City Zip stakes winners; Prospectors Gamble, broodmare sire of City Zip grade one winner Bustin Stones; Lemon Drop Kid, broodmare sire of City Zip graded stakes winner Finest City; Broken Vow (broodmare sire of City Zip graded stakes winner Stays In Vegas and of Palace graded performer Auberge); and a graded winner out of a mare by Empire Maker (sire of Pioneerof the Nile and Bodemeister) and Street Cry (sire of Street Sense).
