Any breeder looking for an inexpensive Gr.1 winner with a truly exceptional pedigree need look no further than Thewayyouare. With Kingmambo as his sire and a Sadler’s Wells mare as his dam, this winner of the prestigious Criterium International is one of seven major winners produced by this cross, others being the European classic winners Henrythenavigator, Divine Proportions and Virginia Waters and the Japanese superstar El Condor Pasa.

Thewayyouare, who won four races as a juvenile, is a half-brother to the magnificent Danehill filly Peeping Fawn, a winner of four consecutive Gr.1 races. The brilliant racehorse and sire El Gran Senor and the champion Australian stallion Redoute’s Choice are also members of this famous Best in Show family.

As DANEHILL sired a multiple Gr.1 winner from Thewayyouare’s dam and the top Australian stallion Redoute’s Choice from the same family, this should be the first line of attack for breeders. Mares by DANEHILL and his sons must be obvious mates for him. The similarly-bred Henrythenavigator has the Gr.2 Coventry S. second Sir John Hawkins out of a DANEHILL mare.

Other sons of Kingmambo have Gr.1 and Gr.3 winners out of GREEN DESERT mares. Two of them have also sired quick-maturing Group winners from mares by Green Desert’s son DESERT STYLE, with Henrythenavigator siring the 2013 Phoenix S. winner Sudirman. Thewayyouare’s juvenile ability also makes him a good option for daughters of CAPE CROSS, DESERT PRINCE, INVINCIBLE SPIRIT, KHELEYF, OASIS DREAM and LAWMAN.

NIJINSKY, NINISKI, CAERLEON and ROYAL ACADEMY all feature among Kingmambo’s success stories. Other sons of Kingmambo have followed their sire’s example, siring Group winners from daughters of NIJINSKY, CAERLEON, HERNANDO, KAHYASI and LOMITAS.

The fact that the Dewhurst Stakes winner Parish Hall is inbred 3×3 to SADLER’S WELLS means that Thewayyouare can be considered for grand-daughters of Sadler’s Wells.

Other sons of Kingmambo have sired Group winners from mares by AHONOORA and INDIAN RIDGE, so this line is well worth trying with Thewayyouare.

Sons of Kingmambo have sired Group winners from grand-daughters of MR PROSPECTOR, by SEEKING THE GOLD, GONE WEST and GEIGER COUNTER. These winners are inbred 3×3. This suggests that Thewayyouare could do likewise.

Mares with some NEVER BEND blood should also be considered. El Condor Pasa’s first winner of the Japan Cup Dirt, Alondite, is out of a RIVERMAN mare. King’s Best has Gr.1 winners out of daughters of IRISH RIVER and DARSHAAN. SHIRLEY HEIGHTS appears in the pedigrees of some of Kingmambo’s Gr.1 winners.

The similarly-bred El Condor Pasa sired several Group winners in Japan during his short life. He did well with mares by SUNDAY SILENCE and with SILVER HAWK, both from the TURN-TO line. Another Japanese son, King Kamehameha, is also thriving with SUNDAY SILENCE line mares. Thewayyouare can be expected to do well with mares by RED RANSOM, ROBELLINO, DR FONG, INTIKHAB and SRI PEKAN.
