The very speedy Requinto won all four of his races over 5f against his own age group as a two-year-old. His victories included the Gr.2 Flying Childers S. and the Gr.3 Molecomb S. In assessing the bright start to his stallion career, it is imperative to remember that he started at €5,000. In the circumstances he has done very well to sire 16 winners from his first 30 runners and to sire second-crop yearlings which sold for up to €145,000.
A sensible approach would be aiming to produce smart two-year-olds and sprinters by Requinto, especially when Zoffany, another of Dansili’s fastest 2yos, was able to sire three stakes-winning first-crop 2yos at Royal Ascot.
Mares from Requinto’s family produced the Royal Ascot two-year-old Gr.3 winner Blue Dakota to NAMID, and Gr.2 winner Godfrey Street to COMPTON PLACE, another son of INDIAN RIDGE. Dansili has Group-winning daughters out of mares by INDIAN RIDGE, INCHINOR and STATOBLEST. This suggests mares with AHONOORA blood, including daughters of ACCLAMATION, whose dam was by AHONOORA.
Other sons of Dansili have Gr.1 and Gr.2 winners inbred 4×3 to DANZIG. One of them is Zoffany, who owes much of his early success to mares from this male line. His smart daughter Illuminate has a dam by GREEN DESERT and his Gr.2 Royal Lodge winner Foundation has a dam by POLISH PRECEDENT. Another son, the Gr.1 Prix de l’Abbaye runner-up Washington DC, is inbred 4×4. Two of Dansili’s Gr.1-winning daughters, Giofra and Laughing, are inbred 3×4 to DANZIG, as are Dansili’s high-class sprinter Bated Breath and his Gr.2 Gimcrack Stakes winner Shaweel.
A son and a grandson of DANEHILL sired those fast fillies Piccadilly Filly and Gilt Edge Girl from Requinto’s female family. Now that 3×3 inbreeding to DANEHILL has produced the high-class sprinter Hoof It and the Middle Park winner Astaire, breeders may want to try Requinto with mares by Danehill’s sons. Zoffany has a Gr.3 winner inbred 3×3.
NUREYEV also demands consideration as Dansili sired the Arc winner Rail Link from a THEATRICAL mare and Gr.2 winner Shaweel from a PEINTRE CELEBRE mare. Dansili has a high proportion of Group winners out of PIVOTAL mares, including the precocious Fire Lily and the Gr.1 winner Winsili. Two sons of Dansili now have stakes winners out of PIVOTAL mares and Zoffany sired the classic-placed Architecture from a daughter of FASLIYEV.
Requinto’s Group-placed son Broken Stones is out of a FOOTSTEPSINTHESAND mare. This suggests daughters of GIANT’S CAUSEWAY and SHAMARDAL could do well.
Requinto could be a very interesting match for mares by ACCLAMATION and DARK ANGEL.
