MATING SUGGESTIONS: American Pharoah was a champion at two and three, in addition to winning the Triple Crown, he was one of the easiest winners of the Breeders’ Cup Classic and became Horse of the Year. He has quickly proved his worth as a high-class and versatile young sire. Predictably, his stud success has translated into sales success, with each of his first four crops producing seven-figure yearlings. American Pharoah has a valuable outcross pedigree. MR PROSPECTOR is back in the sixth generation of his foals and he is free of stallions such as SEATTLE SLEW , DANZIG , SADLER’S WELLS , DEPUTY MINISTER , ROBERTO and HALO . Even STORM CAT is back in the fourth generation of his foals. American Pharoah’s Gr.1-winning half-sister Chasing Yesterday is by TAPIT and five of his first six runners out of TAPIT mares are winners, including Gr.1 winner Harvey’s Lil Goil. TAPIT is a grandson of A.P. INDY and American Pharoah already has SWs out of mares by A.P. Indy’s sons FLATTER (Gr.2 winner Merneith is inbred 4x4 to UNBRIDLED ) and A.P. WARRIOR . He has numerous options from the MR PROSPECTOR male line. His first Group winner, the speedy Maven, is out of a grand-daughter of DISTORTED HUMOR , while his smart Japanese dirt horse Danon Pharaoh is out of a grand-daughter of MR GREELEY . American Pharoah when mated with a SADLER’S WELLS mare sired Gr.1 2YO winner Van Gogh. His first 11 starters out of GALILEO mares included four Group performers, headed by Gr.2 winner Pista and Gr.1-placed Monarch of Egypt. His first starter out of a MEDAGLIA D’ORO mare was the Saratoga Listed winner Another Miracle. He sired Gr.2 winner Four Wheel Drive and Japanese Gr.1 dirt winner Café Pharoah from daughters of MORE THAN READY . This calls for more mares with HALO blood. GIANT’S CAUSEWAY is broodmare sire of his useful French winner Ocean Atlantique. His Gr.2 winner Sweet Melania has a dam by DISCREET CAT and is therefore inbred 4x4 to STORM CAT , as is Gr.3 winner Turned Aside. Gr.2 winner Pista has a second dam by STORM CAT and is therefore inbred 4x3. American Pharoah’s first starter out of a SCAT DADDY mare is the 2021 Grade 1-placed juvenile Stakes winner Mackinnon. His speedy Gr.3-winning son Turned Aside has a dam by WAR FRONT and his talented Irish filly Willow has a dam by DANEHILL . This suggests more DANZIG blood will suit American Pharoah. His Gr.2 winner As Time Goes By has a dam by DEHERE and SW Fi Fi Pharoah is out of a GHOSTZAPPER mare. 7

MATING SUGGESTIONS: Caravaggio embodies all that was good about his sire Scat Daddy. Like Scat Daddy, he became a Gr.1 winner at two. Caravaggio also followed his sire’s example by becoming a Gr.1 winner at three. He was winning for the sixth time in six starts when he took the Gr.1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot. Caravaggio ranks alongside Lady Aurelia, No Nay Never, Sioux Nation and Acapulco as one of 11 European 2YO Group winners sired by Scat Daddy and between them they collected five of Royal Ascot’s prestigious 2YO Group races. Caravaggio has wasted no time in siring fast juveniles. He had 23 first-crop winners to his name by early November and among them are four SWs headed by Tenebrism, winner of the Gr.1 Cheveley Park Stakes. Another daughter, Her World, led throughout in the Tyro Stakes on her debut. Caravaggio’s pedigree includes no duplications in the first four generations and it is free of most of the main North American influences. His Gr.1-winning daughter is out of a mare by PIVOTAL , a top-class sire who is bred on a reverse NOTHERN DANCER / CARO cross to INDIAN CHARLIE , the sire of UNCLE MO . MR PROSPECTOR will be back in the fourth generation of his foals. Caravaggio has already sired the stakes-winning Her World from a daughter of UNBRIDLED’S SONG . Daughters of SPEIGHTSTOWN , ELUSIVE QUALITY , MR GREELEY and GRAND SLAM could reinforce Caravaggio’s speed and daughters of MUNNINGS should also suit, partly because they create 3x4 to Holy Bull. Mares by DISTORTED HUMOR also have obvious appeal. Scat Daddy sired several Graded winners with mares from the SEATTLE SLEW line. Mares by TAPIT , with their Unbridled and Foggy Note blood, should work well with Caravaggio. Two of his best first-crop winners, including Gr.2 winner Agartha, are out of mares by sons of DANEHILL . The DANZIG line has supplied Scat Daddy’s son No Nay Never with two Gr.1 winners, Alcohol Free having a dam by HARD SPUN and Ten Sovereigns having a dam by EXCEED AND EXCEL . Caravaggio has plenty of potential with daughters of WAR FRONT , HARD SPUN , WAR CHANT , BELONG TO ME , BOUNDARY and EXCHANGE RATE . The HAIL TO REASON line also supplied Scat Daddy with several Graded winners, via sons of ROBERTO and HALO , including DYNAFORMER . TIZNOW mares would be interesting. Caravaggio’s dam is inbred 4x4 to Intentionally. Tiznow comes from the Intentionally male line and several of his best winners have a second line. 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. As STORM CAT will be back in the fifth generation of Caravaggio’s foals, there is ample scope for a second line. SADLER’S WELLS and his son BARATHEA sired the second dams of Caravaggio’s two GSWs so EL PRADO line mares are therefore highly recommended. 11 ❝ Everyone knows that Gun Runner at Three Chimneys is having an outstanding first-crop year… But there's another stallion [CARAVAGGIO] across town who is also having a banner year. He leads by winners, wins, starters, black-type horses and is tied with Gun Runner by Graded Stakes horses. ❞ , 20th Oct. 2021

MATING SUGGESTIONS: When the voters nominated their 2016 Eclipse Award champions, Classic Empire took the 2YO male title with a landslide 248 votes out of a possible 248. He dominated his generation virtually from the moment he made a winning debut three days before the Kentucky Derby. From then on it was Graded stakes only and his wins included both the Gr.1 Breeders’ Futurity and the Gr.1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Classic Empire trained on well, notably taking the Gr.1 Arkansas Derby and going down by only a head in the Gr.1 Preakness. He has the pedigree of a potentially high-class stallion. He is bred along similar lines to Triple Crown hero American Pharoah, as both were sired by Pioneerof The Nile from grand-daughters of Storm Cat. Like American Pharoah, Classic Empire enjoys the significant benefit of having a pedigree free of such as A.P. INDY , SEATTLE SLEW , DANZIG , SADLER’S WELLS , DEPUTY MINISTER , ROBERTO and HALO . It was hardly surprising that one of Classic Empire’s first black-type winners, Classy Edition, is out of a SEATTLE SLEW line mare, by BERNARDINI . Classic Empire’s grandsire Empire Maker sired Gr.1 winners from mares by three different sons of SEATTLE SLEW , including champion Royal Delta from an A.P. INDY mare. Empire Maker’s son Bodemeister sired the fast Gr.2 winner American Anthem from another A.P. INDY mare and the Gr.3 winner Once On Whiskey from a MINESHAFT mare. Classic Empire must be a prime candidate for daughters of A.P INDY and his sons, especially those which combine A.P. INDY with MR PROSPECTOR , such as PULPIT , FLATTER , MALIBU MOON and MINESHAFT . The similarly-bred American Pharoah already has a Gr.1 winner from a daughter of TAPIT (which create 4x4 to the powerful classic influence UNBRIDLED ). Classic Empire has numerous options with mares from the MR PROSPECTOR male line, including those by KINGMAMBO , CARSON CITY , CITY ZIP , SMART STRIKE , CURLIN , DISTORTED HUMOR , SPEIGHTSTOWN (4x4 to Storm Cat) and STREET CRY . American Pharoah has made a bright start with the SADLER’S WELLS line, with SADLER’S WELLS siring the dam of the Gr.1 2YO winner Van Gogh. American Pharoah’s first 11 starters out of GALILEO mares included four Group performers, headed by Gr.2 winner Pista and Gr.1-placed Monarch of Egypt. Classic Empire is therefore well worth trying with mares by GALILEO , EL PRADO , MEDAGLIA D’ORO and KITTEN’S JOY . Pioneerof The Nile sired a Gr.3 winner from a MORE THAN READY mare and American Pharoah has mirrored this success, siring the Gr.2 winner Four Wheel Drive and the Japanese Gr.1 dirt winner Café Pharoah from daughters of MORE THAN READY . This line is well worth trying with Classic Empire. Mares by GIANT’S CAUSEWAY and other sons of Storm Cat, such as FOREST WILDCAT , BLUEGRASS CAT , STORMY ATLANTIC and YANKEE GENTLEMAN , create only 4x3 to STORM CAT . This is a likeable option, as Empire Maker sired Bodemeister and In Lingerie from daughters of STORM CAT and the Gr.1 winner Eight Rings from a grand-daughter. Cairo Prince, another of Pioneerof The Nile’s stallion sons, has Gr.2 and Gr.3 winners out of daughters of GIANT’S CAUSEWAY , HARLAN’S HOLIDAY and TALE OF THE CAT . American Pharoah already has several Graded/Group winners inbred to STORM CAT , including Pista (4x3), Sweet Melania (4x4) and Turned Aside (4x4). American Pharoah’s first starter out of a SCAT DADDY mare is the 2YO Stakes winner Mackinnon. Empire Maker did well with mares by DANZIG and his sons. American Pharoah’s first Graded winner was from a WAR FRONT mare, suggesting Classic Empire will thrive with mares by other dirt performers by DANZIG , such as HARD SPUN and EXCHANGE RATE . The DEPUTY MINISTER line is another option, as American Pharoah’s Gr.2-winning daughter As Time Goes By has a dam by DEHERE and his Listed winner Fi Fi Pharoah is out of a GHOSTZAPPER mare. Mares by TOUCH GOLD and AWESOME AGAIN are other options. HOLY BULL is the broodmare sire of Cairo Prince, another of Pioneerof The Nile’s best sons. Significantly, Classic Empire’s first black-type winner, First Empire, is out of a grand-daughter of HOLY BULL , by MACHO UNO . Classic Empire’s first runner out of an UNCLE MO mare is Interstatedaydream, runner-up in the Gr.2 Adirondack Stakes. A daughter of IN EXCESS produced the Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming to Bodemeister. 15

MATING SUGGESTIONS: With his May 19 birthday, Cupid wasn’t likely to be at his best as a 2YO, but this 900,000-dollar yearling made up for lost time as a sophomore, posting Gr.2 victories in the Rebel Stakes, Indiana Derby and West Virginia Derby. As a 4YO, Cupid won the Gold Cup at Santa Anita S.-Gr.1 earning a 108 Beyer Speed Figure. The STORM CAT line has been a fertile source of Graded winners by Tapit, with mares by ten different sons supplying Graded winners. Among them are GIANT’S CAUSEWAY , HENNESSY , FOREST WILDCAT and FORESTRY . Harlan’s sons HARLAN’S HOLIDAY and MENIFEE have daughters with Gr.2 winners by Tapit, so INTO MISCHIEF comes into the picture. Cupid’s Stakes winner God Of Love has a dam by a son of STORM CAT . Although Tapit has two lines of Mr Prospector, he owes numerous Graded stakes winners to mares from the Mr Prospector line. Among the stallions involved were CARSON CITY (three times), SEEKING THE GOLD , WOODMAN , GONE WEST and his sons ELUSIVE QUALITY , GRAND SLAM , JOHAR and MR GREELEY , as well as FORTY NINER’s sons DISTORTED HUMOR and EDITOR’S NOTE . Tapit is working with mares by STREET CRY and his son STREET SENSE , siring three Gr.2 winners. The fact that Tapit has a dam by UNBRIDLED hasn’t stopped him siring Gr.1 and Gr.2 winners from daughters of UNBRIDLED’S SONG , which are inbred 3x3 to UNBRIDLED . Tapit also has 29% SWs from daughters of EMPIRE MAKER . Cupid has already sired the Stakes winner The Sky Is Falling from an UNBRIDLED line mare. EL PRADO and his son MEDAGLIA D’ORO are among the broodmare sires of Tapit’s Graded stakes winners, with the Gr.1 winner Laragh having an EL PRADO dam. SADLER’S WELLS sired the second dam of Gr.2 winner Lani. Although Tapit is by Pulpit, a grandson of SEATTLE SLEW , the great Triple Crown winner also appears on the dam’s side of quite a few of his good winners. FROSTED is inbred 4x4, with the second line coming via AVENUE OF FLAGS , and Gr.1 winner Tapwrit is another inbred 4x4. The Gr.1 winner Sweet Loretta is inbred 3x4 to A.P. INDY. DIXIELAND BAND and DIXIE UNION are among the broodmare sires of Tapit’s Graded winners. Tapit has two Graded winners from 6 foals out of mares by HARD SPUN , a son of DANZIG . Another son of Tapit sired the top-class Tiz The Law from a daughter of TIZNOW .
Height: 16.0½ I Won from 6f. to 7f.

Echo Town is an impressive 3½-length winner of the H. Allen Jerkens S.-Gr.1 . Previous winners of the race include Tale Of The Cat , More Than Ready and Hard Spun .

MATING SUGGESTIONS: As many as four sons of Speightstown, including the consistently successful Munnings, have sired Northern Hemisphere Gr.1 winners so the omens look good for Echo Town, who became one of the veteran sire’s latest Gr.1 winners when he decisively landed the H. Allen Jerkens Stakes at Saratoga. That victory was the fourth of Echo Town’s career and he was also second in the Gr.1 Woody Stephens Stakes. As a high-class winner over seven furlongs, Echo Town has a similar profile to Munnings. Echo Town’s female line has produced stakes winners to two sons of A.P. INDY , so it is relevant that Munnings sired the Gr.2 winners Finite and Bonny South from daughters of Champion Sire TAPIT , as well as a Gr.3 winner from an A.P. INDY mare. His statistics stand at 22% black-type winners from TAPIT mares and 33% from A.P. INDY mares. Speightstown has four Graded winners out of daughters of A.P. INDY , including Gr.1 winner Flagstaff. MR PROSPECTOR will be back in the fourth generation of Echo Town’s foals. This allows plenty of options for mares with Mr Prospector blood, as Speightstown has several good performers inbred either 3x3 or 3x4 to MR PROSPECTOR , including Travers winner Golden Ticket, Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner Tamarkuz, Gr.1 winner Charlatan and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Sharing. Munnings sired the very impressive Gr.1-winning juvenile Jack Christopher from an UNBRIDLED line mare. SCAT DADDY mares would be a safe means of introducing extra lines of STORM CAT and MR PROSPECTOR , creating 4x4 to Mr Prospector and 4x5x5 to STORM CAT . It is worth noting that Echo Town’s brilliant 2YO half-sister Echo Zulu is by Gun Runner, a stallion from the FAPPIANO sire line and out of a GIANT’S CAUSEWAY mare. Munnings sired his first Gr.1 winner, I’m A Chatterbox, from a grand-daughter of DANZIG and the Gr.3 winner Munny Spunt from a HARD SPUN mare. Speightstown sired the Gr.1 winners Jersey Town and Seek Again from mares by BELONG TO ME and DANEHILL and Speightstown also has Graded winners out of daughters of DANZIG , DAYJUR , ZIETEN , ORPEN , HONOR GRADES and SEA HERO . Munnings has a Gr.2 winner with a dam by EL PRADO and he also has 9% black-type winners with MEDAGLIA D’ORO mares. Mares by other SADLER’S WELLS line stallions are clearly merited for Echo Town. Speightstown sired the Travers Stakes winner Golden Ticket from a DEPUTY MINISTER mare and he is also one of three sons of Gone West to have sired a Gr.1 winner from mares by sons of Deputy Minister. Munnings has had stakes success with mares by SALT LAKE and SILVER DEPUTY . Speightstown has two black-type winners from 13 foals out of INDIAN CHARLIE mares, including the speedy Gr.3 winner Switzerland. Daughters of UNCLE MO could therefore suit Echo Town. ❝ Echo Town swung out wide turning for home and swiftly inhaled the top three in mid-stretch, charging clear to a dominant 3½ length victory. ❞ , after the H. Allen Jerkens Stakes-Gr.1 23
