“the success of Du Jour, in the GII American Turf S. on the Derby undercard, was a welcome reminder of the value offered by his sire Temple City”
—Chris McGrath, TDN

2020 racing: A leading turf sire in North America yet again, with 9 black type horses – same as Tapit and Scat Daddy – led by 2yo SWs OMAHA CITY & IT CAN BE DONE, and Graded performers VALEDICTORIAN, TEMPLE, Pass the Plate, Another Mystery, etc., as well as G2 main track winner KIMBEAR ($777,199).

Lifetime: 36 black type horses & 8 graded winners on all surfaces, 2 champions, led by 3 G1 winners from his first two crops to race: 3-time G1 winner MISS TEMPLE CITY-G1 ($1,680,091), multiple G1 winner Annals of Time ($860,300), G1 winner & multiple G2 winner Bolo ($978,572), etc.

Renowned as one of the best-looking stallions in North America, and the most successful sire son of breed-shaper DYNAFORMER.

From a sire’s family: out of a DANZIG mare and half-sister to leading sire MALIBU MOON.

Labeled a ‘Value Sire’ by Bill Oppenheim: “a good bet that his name will continue to be in the papers…he’s a very good buy”.

Alan Porter’s 2021 Breeding Analysis for Temple City

A versatile and highly talented racehorse, Temple City also owns true stallion pedigree. A graded winner and grade one performer with high-class from 6½ furlongs to 1½ miles is by the outstanding sire, Dynaformer out of a half-sister to Malibu Moon.  With that background, it’s no surprise that Temple City has become a major sire with a trio of grade one winners to his name.

Dynaformer is a son of Roberto, a horse whose dam is closely related to the dam of Mr. Prospector, and the Dynaformer line has developed a strong affinity for Mr. Prospector. Temple City is already benefitting from this trend, and has grade one winner Miss Temple City and graded winner Pricedtoperfection out of mare by Artax, by the Conquistador Cielo horse, Marquetry, and graded winner Startup Nation out of a mare by Conquistador Cielo son, Wagon Limit, and grade one winner Annals of Time out of a mare by Distant View. Temple City has also sired graded winner Valedictorian out of a mare by Smart Strike (sire of Curlin, Lookin At Lucky and English Channel) and a stakes winner out of a mare by Black Mambo (a three-quarters brother to Lemon Drop Kid, and by Kingmambo).

From the Gone West branch Mr. Prospector, Temple City has stakes winner Pass the Plate out of a mare by Great Notion, a son of the Gone West stallion, Elusive Quality (sire also of Quality Road and Smarty Jones). Other Gone West sources include Mr. Greeley – the broodmare sire of Temple City stakes winner Temple Fur – Speightstown (sire of Munnings), Grand Slam, and Proud Citizen. From a mare by City Zip, a son of Carson City, Temple City has sired stakes winner Trickle In, and Carson City can also be brought in through Cuvee, Lord Carson, Good and Tough and Five Star Day). There is a Temple City stakes winner out of a mare by Dubawi, a a grandson of Seeking the Gold (broodmare sire of two Dynaformer grade one winners, and sire of Mutakddim, Petionville and Cape Town). From the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector, there is a Temple City stakes winner out of a mare by Quiet American (grandsire of Midnight Lute) and Dynaformer had two graded stakes winners from mares by Unbridled’s Song (sire Cross Traffic, Rockport HarborOld FashionedHalf Ours, Dunkirk, Even The Score, Graydar, First Defence and Songandaprayer). There are also Dynaformer stakes winners out of mares by Woodman, Thunder Gulch (by Gulch), Miswaki (sire of Black Tie Affair), Hussonet and Chester House.

Dynaformer also enjoyed great success when bred to mares from the Northern Dancer line. From the Deputy Minister branch, Temple City has stakes winner Saratoga Heater out of a mare by Salt Lake, and there is a Dynaformer stakes winner out of a mare by French Deputy. Temple City has graded stakes winner Archaggelos out of mare by Nureyev, and there is a grade one winner by Dynaformer out of a mare by Nureyev, son Zilzal, suggesting daughters of Theatrical, Stravinsky, Atticus, Spinning World and Unusual Heat. Roberto combines very well with Northern Dancer through Dixieland Band, who has worked under Dynaformer, and could be brought in through such as Dixie Union, Dixie Brass, Citidancer, Hook and Ladder, Dixieland Heat and Chimes Band. Another branch of Northern Dancer to find a strong affinity for Roberto, including Dynaformer, is Nijinsky II, who could be sourced through Strawberry Road, Royal Academy (broodmare sire of a Dynaformer graded stakes winner), Sky Classic, Seattle Dancer and Green Dancer (and his son Greinton).

In addition there are Dynaformer stakes winners out of mares descending from Northern Dancer through Sadler’s Wells (sire of El Prado, and grandsire of Kitten’s Joy, and Artie Schiller, Medaglia d’Oro); Danzig and his sons Danehill and Orpen (with Danzig also available through Exchange Rate, Hard Spun, Belong to Me, War Front, War Chant, Langfuhr, Dayjur, Honor Grades and Polish Numbers), El Gran Senor (sire of Lit de Justice and Helmsman); Lyphard (including a classic winner out of a mare by Linamix); and Sovereign Dancer (sire of Louis Quatorze).

Icecapade is a three-quarters relative to Northern Dancer, and Dynaformer has stakes winners for this line out of mares by Clever Trick (sire of Phone Trick), and Wild Again, who would be particularly interesting through Offlee Wild (out of a half-sister to Dynaformer) and could also be brought in through such as Wild Event, Wild Rush, Whiskey Wisdom, Vicar and Milwaukee Brew.

Blushing Groom line mares have shown a marked affinity for Dynaformer, with Champion American out of a mare by Arazi, and three stakes winners out of daughters of Rahy. There are also two stakes winners by Roberto line stallions out of mares by Mt. Livermore (sire of Housebuster, Peaks and Valleys and Orientate), and it could also be worth considering mares descending from Blushing Groom through Runaway Groom (sire of Cherokee Run and Kafwain).

Dynaformer has sired grade one winners out of mares by the In Reality sons Relaunch and Valid Appeal. Relaunch sources including Skywalker, Honour and Glory, Slew Gin Fizz, Cee’s Tizzy, Bertrando, Officer, Put it Back and Tiznow, while among the sons of Valid Appeal are Successful Appeal, Valid Expectations and Valid Wager.

Temple City is out of half-sister to Malibu Moon, one of the most important sons of A.P. Indy. Since his sire, Dynaformer is represented by grade one winner Karlovy Vary out of a mare by A.P. Indy son Pulpit (sire of Tapit and Sky Mesa – the broodmare sire of Temple City graded stakes winner Kimbear – and Stroll), this opens up the possibility of testing Temple City with daughters of such as Mineshaft, Bernardini, Old Trieste, Stephen Got Even and Jump Start, or even trying Malibu Moon mares to duplicate grade one winner Macoumba 3 x 3. The cross with A.P. Indy’s sire, Seattle Slew, through Chief Seattle has provided Temple City with his grade one-winning son, Bolo.

We can also note that Dynaformer and Danzig – the sire and broodmare sire of Temple City – have done very well with mares descending from Sharpen Up, with Dynaformer particularly liking Diesis, and there is a Temple City stakes winner out of a mare by the Sharpen Up line stallion Conveyor. There is a stakes winner by a son of Dynaformer out of a mare by Saint Ballado, a son of Halo, which suggests More Than Ready mares could work.
