Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Palace

The highest-earning colt at stud by the prolific sire, City Zip, sprint star Palace won six stakes—four graded, including two grade one events.

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; grade one winner Collected out of a mare by JohannesburgFuture StormStormin FeverForest WildcatTactical Cat and Stormy Atlantic, so most Storm Cat line mares should suit here. The Danzig branch of Northern Dancer has supplied the dams of four City Zip stakes winners. There are City Zip stakes winners out of mares by Dixieland Band, and his son Citidancer, which also suggests Dixie Union. City Zip is half-brother to Ghostzapper, a son of Awesome Again (by Deputy Minister), and City Zip has stakes winners out of mares Deputy Minister and his son, Touch Gold.

City Zip has a multiple graded stakes winner from a mare by a son of Sadler’s Wells, who might be introduced in the U.S. through El Prado and sons Medaglia d’Oro and Kitten’s Joy, and through Horse Chestnut, broodmare sire of City Zip grade one winner Zipessa.

City Zip’s Champion Sprinter, Work All Week, is out of a mare by the Roberto stallion, Repriced, and this strain could be brought in through Lear FanDynaformerRed RansomKris S. and Silver HawkRoberto is a Hail to Reason line stallion, and from the Halo branch of that line, City Zip has a graded stakes winner out of a mare by More Than Ready, as well as stakes winners out of mares by Devil’s Bag and Saint Ballado.

City Zip carries Blushing Groom through his sire, City Zip, and he has seven stakes winners with Blushing Groom inbreeding. City Zip is out of a mare by Relaunch, but he has already sired a grade one winner out of a mare by Relaunch line stallion Tiznow, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Relaunch son Honour and Glory.

Finest City, by City Zip, is out of a mare by Lemon Drop Kid, from his own Mr. Prospector line, and has also worked with this cross through Distorted HumorStreet CryThunder GulchLemon Drop Kid and Broken Vow.
