He is by War Front who sired more than 6 per cent GSWs on his way to becoming the U.S.’s highest-priced stallion in 2019 and 2020. Although Air Force Blue made his name on turf, both his parents and both his grandsires did all their winning on dirt. His second dam, Circle of Gold, is a sister to Flanders, American champion 2YO filly & Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner. Air Force Blue has none of the SEATTLE SLEW blood which helped Flanders produce multiple Gr.1 winner Surfside. War Front has Gr.1 or Gr.2 winners from mares by A.P. INDY , PULPIT and TAPIT , achieving 18% SWs with daughters of PULPIT and 20% with daughters of TAPIT . War Front has Gr.1 winners with two lines to DANZIG , including War Flag, Hit It A Bomb (Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf) and Brave Anna. MR PROSPECTOR has combined extremely well with the Danzig male line. War Front has Gr.1 winners out of mares by FORTY NINER , MISWAKI , SMART STRIKE , WOODMAN and SEEKING THE GOLD . War Front has five SWs from his first 31 foals out of UNBRIDLED’S SONG mares (16%). War Front has 20% SWs with SADLER’S WELLS mares, including Preakness S. winner War of Will and two Gr.1 2YO winners. He also has three Gr.1 winners out of daughters of GALILEO , including Champion 2YO U S Navy Flag. At least eight other grandsons of Danzig have sired Gr.1 winners from STORM CAT line mares, including from daughters of GIANT’S CAUSEWAY , HENNESSY , TALE OF THE CAT , FOREST WILDCAT and SHAMARDAL . War Front has Graded winners from mares by two BLUSHING GROOM line stallions, including the top-class Declaration of War from a RAHY mare. The ROBERTO male line should also suit well, as War Front has GSWs from daughters of DYNAFORMER , RED RANSOM and ARCH , a son of KRIS S. He also has Gr.1 and Gr.2 winners with second dams by SILVER HAWK .

American Pharoah was so impressive in winning the Gr.1 Del Mar Futurity and Gr.1 FrontRunner Stakes that the compilers of the Experimental Free Handicap felt compelled to award him joint-top weight. American Pharoah secured the Eclipse Award and he justified all the confidence shown in him by then winning the Triple Crown and 10
Breeders’ Cup Classic. In the process he showed all the talent, versatility, durability and courage which entitle him to the greatest respect as a stallion. He is now passing on his 2YO excellence, making such an immediate impact that he became Champion first-crop sire by a wide margin. As expected, his progeny have continued to shine at three, to the extent that he now has twelve SWs, including eight at Graded level. His achievements have translated into success in the sales ring and each of his first three crops has contained at least two seven-figure yearlings. American Pharoah’s bloodlines make him particularly valuable. Mr Prospector is back in the sixth generation of his foals and his pedigree is free of such as A.P. INDY , SEATTLE SLEW , DANZIG , SADLER’S WELLS , DEPUTY MINISTER , ROBERTO and HALO . Even Storm Cat will be back in the fourth generation of his foals and Fappiano in the fifth, allowing a second line. Empire Maker sired Gr.1 winners from mares by three different sons of SEATTLE SLEW . American Pharoah must be a prime candidate for daughters of A.P INDY and his sons. Daughters of TAPIT would have every chance of transmitting American Pharoah’s Triple Crown prowess, as they create 4x4 to UNBRIDLED . The Gr.1 winner Harvey’s Lil Goil is American Pharoah’s first black-type winner with a dam by TAPIT . Empire Maker sired 14% SWs from daughters of SEEKING THE GOLD . There are numerous other options from this MR PROSPECTOR male line. American Pharoah’s first Group winner, the speedy 2YO Maven, is out of a grand-daughter of DISTORTED HUMOR . His highest-priced 2020 yearling is out of a daughter of VICTORY GALLOP and therefore has two lines of FAPPIANO . American Pharoah has made a bright start with the SADLER’S WELLS line as his son Van Gogh, a Gr.1-winning juvenile in 2020, is out of one of his daughters. His first four starters out of GALILEO mares included Gr.2 winner Pista and Gr.1-placed Monarch of Egypt. His first starter out of a MEDAGLIA D’ORO mare is the Saratoga Listed winner Another Miracle. Pioneerof The Nile did very well with the HAIL TO REASON line. American Pharoah is now mirroring this success, as he has already sired the Gr.2-winning 2YO Four Wheel Drive and the Japanese Gr.3 dirt winner Café Pharoah from daughters of MORE THAN READY . Mares by GIANT’S CAUSEWAY and other sons of Storm Cat create only 4x3 to STORM CAT . GIANT’S CAUSEWAY is broodmare sire of American Pharoah’s useful French winner Ocean Atlantique, while his Gr.2 winner Sweet Melania has a dam by STORM CAT’s grandson DISCREET CAT and is therefore inbred 4x4. Mares by MARIA’S MON and his son LATENT HEAT have produced Graded performers to American Pharoah. American Pharoah could thrive with mares by dirt performers by DANZIG , such as WAR FRONT , HARD SPUN and EXCHANGE RATE . His speedy Gr.3-winning son Turned Aside has a dam by WAR FRONT . A daughter of IN EXCESS produced the Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming to Bodemeister and the Gr.2 winner Positive Thinking to Pioneerof The Nile. This suggests that UNCLE MO mares will succeed with American Pharoah.

Caravaggio also followed his sire’s example by becoming a top Gr.1 winner at three. He was winning for the sixth time in six starts when he defeated the Gr.1 winners Harry Angel and Blue Point in the Commonwealth Cup. Caravaggio ranks alongside Lady Aurelia, No Nay Never, Sioux Nation, Acapulco, Seahenge, Skitter Scatter, Van Beethoven, So Perfect, Sergei Prokofiev and Daddy Long Legs among Scat Daddy’s 11 juvenile Group winners in Europe. Between them they collected five of Royal Ascot’s prestigious 2YO Group races. Scat Daddy’s first major son at stud No Nay Never already has six SWs from his first 26 runners in America – an excellent 23%. Caravaggio’s pedigree has no duplications in the first four generations and it is free of Seattle Slew, A.P. Indy, Tapit, Danzig, War Front, Hail To Reason, Deputy Minister, Fappiano and Unbridled. No Nay Never’s success with the MR PROSPECTOR line includes Arizona, a Gr.2 2YO winner who has a dam by ENGLISH CHANNEL , a son of SMART STRIKE . Another Gr.2 winner, Chestnut Honey, has a dam by CHESTER HOUSE . Scat Daddy sired GSWs from daughters of EMPIRE MAKER and UNBRIDLED’S SONG and from mares by four different sons of UNBRIDLED’S SONG . He also sired Gr.1-winning 2YOs from daughters of ELUSIVE QUALITY and STREET CRY . Scat Daddy sired several Graded winners from SEATTLE SLEW line mares, including MINESHAFT , SKY MESA and TAPIT . No Nay Never’s Gr.1 winner Ten Sovereigns has a third dam by CAPOTE . The DANZIG line has supplied No Nay Never with two 2YO Gr.1 winners, Alcohol Free has a dam by HARD SPUN and Ten Sovereigns has a dam by a son of DANEHILL . The HAIL TO REASON line also supplied Scat Daddy with several Graded winners, via sons of ROBERTO and HALO , including DYNAFORMER . Scat Daddy’s flying daughter Lady Aurelia is inbred 4x3 to STORM CAT and his Gr.1 winners Valid Point and Harmonize are inbred 4x4. 15
