Home Affairs

Home Affairs’ sire I Am Invincible has had plenty of success with mares from the Sadler’s Wells and Fairy King sire lines, including the dams of Media Sensation, Invincibella, Dame Giselle, Wishful Thinker, Libertini, Miss Leonidas and The Justice League etc. Home Affairs’ second damsire Stravinsky is a son of Nureyev from this, the GOODY TWO SHOES family. Mares carrying individuals such as his three-quarter brothers SADLER’S WELLS and FAIRY KING (sire of FALBRAV, ADVENTUROUS, REVOQUE, HELISSIO, SHINKO KING,VICTORY NOTE and ENCOSTA DE LAGO) suit. Other descendants include HEADWATER, LT STEVENS, VAL DE LOIR, THATCH (and son THATCHING), TATE GALLERY, GEIGER COUNTER, YEATS, TOPSIDER, REFORM and OPEN DAY which can boost this prepotent line.

Encosta De Lago (see above as son of Fairy King) and his descendants including NORTHERN METEOR – sire of ZOUSTAR and DEEP FIELD - are additionally desirable for Home Affairs, as Encosta De Lago is a FANFRELUCHE family member. Home Affairs is himself a tail female descendant of Fanfreluche and his damsire Flying Spur is also from this line. Flying Spur and Encosta De Lago have worked very well together.

Miswaki, third damsire of Home Affairs, is out of HOPESPRINGSETERNAL. Line breeding to this matriarch can be created by using mares carrying TOBOUGG, who has the additional benefit for Home Affairs of being a grandson of Sadler’s Wells (see above).

Home Affairs carries ALMAHMOUD family members Danehill and four lines to Northern Dancer. MACHIAVELLIAN (sire of STREET CRY & VETTORI) and HALO line mares can boost this prepotent sire line. Halo can be sourced via SEBRING, MORE THAN READY, DON’T SAY HALO and SUNDAY SILENCE line mares, among others. Group 1 winner Oohood is out of a Sunday Silence mare.

The triplication of Mr Prospector via Home Affairs’ dam calls for mares carrying STORM CAT, who not only works with Mr Prospector, but also with Danehill and his sire Danzig on his dam’s sire line. Storm Cat’s sire descendants include TALE OF THE CAT, SHAMARDAL, VAN NISTELROOY, JOHANNESBURG, HENNESSY, GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, SCAT DADDY, CATRAIL and BLACK MINNALOUSHE. Group 1 winner Imperatriz is out of a mare by SHAMARDAL.

Stravinsky, second damsire of Home Affairs, has NATIVE STREET as his third dam. This mare is also the granddam of ALQUOZ, who would be beneficial in a mare’s pedigree.

There is a duplication of Sir Ivor in Home Affairs’ pedigree. He appears through two daughters (the fantastic matriarchs, Foreign Courier and Grand Luxe). The introduction of sons of SIR IVOR, would be beneficial. Examples are SIR TRISTRAM, IMPERIAL PRINCE, GIELGUD and MALINOWSKI.

Sire ancestors of Sir Tristram to source in mares’ pedigrees include PIERRO, LONHRO, MILITARY PLUME, MARAUDING, RESET, SAVABEEL and ZABEEL.

Invincible Spirit, grandsire of Home Affairs, is out of a mare by Kris (by Sharpen Up). He is a brother to KEEN and DIESIS. DANEHILL DANCER carries a daughter of Sharpen Up to sex balance the son, Kris. Group 1 winning daughter of I Am Invincible, Fiesta, is out of a Danehill Dancer mare, while Loving Gaby is out of a son of Danehill Dancer, MASTERCRAFTSMAN.
