A dual Gr. 1 winning son of top class Mr. Prospector line sire Street Cry, Pride Of Dubai has many strong pedigree points to exploit.
Mares by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT and therefore his son I AM INVINCIBLE create a strong cluster pattern when mated with Pride Of Dubai. Invincible Spirit is a grandson of Danzig out of a daughter of ELJAZZI, while Pride Of Dubai’s dam is a granddaughter of Danzig out of ELJAZZI. Another member of this female family is PITCAIRN, who appears in the pedigrees of daughters of EQUIANO via ELA-MANA-MOU.
Danehill prominent in Pride Of Dubai is supported by fellow ALMAHMOUD family members Halo, Machiavellian and Northern Dancer. Halo is represented by a daughter. It is desirable to sex balance this key ancestor by using broodmares carrying sons of HALO. Mares by DON’T SAY HALO, OREGON, SOUTHERN HALO and his sons (including MORE THAN READY and DUBLEO), SUNDAY SILENCE and his sons (including, FUJI KISEKI, GENUINE, KEEP THE FAITH and BUBBLE GUM FELLOW) are examples. Pride of Dubai’s stakes winning half brother AL ANEED is out of a daughter of MORE THAN READY.
Pride Of Dubai is out of a daughter of Danehill and has appeal for broodmares by DANEHILL grandsons and great grandsons. ‘Sex balancing’ (bringing together a son and a daughter of an individual in a mating) to Danehill is the most successful way to duplicate this prepotent influence, producing Group 1 winners GUELPH, ASTAIRE and SOUTHERN LORD and many other top performers.
An interesting ‘Rasmussen Factor’ pattern is created by using Pride Of Dubai with mares by SHAMARDAL. His dam Helsinki is a sister to Street Cry.
Two of Street Cry’s 18 Gr1 winners SEVENTH STREET and WINX share similarities via their damsires. Winx’s dam carries SUCCESS EXPRESS, while Seventh Street’s damsire is MEADOWLAKE – both sons of HOLD YOUR PEACE.
Street Cry’s Champion daughter ZENYATTA is out of a mare by KRIS S, a son of ROBERTO. Mares by Kris S’s son BROCCO would approximate this cross, while daughters of other Roberto line sires will also be interesting. They include mares by RED RANSOM and his sons such as SRI PEKAN, DUPORTH, ALL AMERICAN, CHARGE FORWARD and DOMESDAY, plus DYNAFORMER and AT TALAQ.
The presence of Danzig and Rockefella in Pride Of Dubai’s dam calls for the presence of the third prominent LADY SUSAN family member, BLETCHINGLY. These three descendants have a long history of affinity. Broodmare sires such as CANNY LAD, BEST WESTERN, SHOW A HEART, BUREAUCRACY and HURRICANE SKY all carry Bletchingly.
Champion 3-Year-Old WHOBEGOTYOU is by Street Cry out of a CARNEGIE mare (creating a duplication of Riverman). His dam also creates a sex balanced duplication of Mr. Prospector with Street Cry.
Pride of Dubai’s second damsire Artaius is bred on a Round Table / My Babu / SELENE combination. This is repeated in the pedigree of Sir Tristram’s dam, Isolt. Mares carrying the SIR TRISTRAM sireline are therefore desirable, including those by MILITARY PLUME, ZABEEL, OCTAGONAL, LONHRO, RESET, GROSVENOR and KAAPSTAD.
