Footstepsinthesand with DANEHILL mares has resulted in Gr.1 winners Chachamaidee and Steinbeck and Gr.3 winners Sent From Heaven and J Wonder. He also has SWs out of mares by ROCK OF GIBRALTAR, DANSILI and EXCEED AND EXCEL, as well as a Gr.2 winner out of a mare by Danehill’s grandson KONIGSTIGER.
He also has a Gr.2 winner with a dam by GRAND LODGE, and SWs from ANABAA, GREEN DESERT (2), OASIS DREAM (2), KEY OF LUCK and LANGFUHR mares.
His Gr.1 winner Chachamaidee and Gr.2 winner Living The Life have second dams by SADLER’S WELLS and Footstepsinthesand also has Group performers out of mares by ENTREPRENEUR, IN THE WINGS and KING’S THEATRE. He sired the useful Turf Laurel from a TEOFILO mare.
He also has talented performers out of mares by Nureyev’s sons FASLIYEV, PEINTRE CELEBRE, SPINNING WORLD, STRAVINSKY (Gr.2 winner Heshem) and WOLFHOUND, plus grandson PIVOTAL (Gr.3 winner Onenightidreamed).
His Gr.2-winning juvenile Formosina is out of a mare by ROYAL APPLAUSE. This suggests ACCLAMATION, DARK ANGEL and EQUIANO mares should also suit.
Giant’s Causeway, with mares MR PROSPECTOR line mares, sired over 40 GSWs. Footstepsinthesand has sired the Gr.2 winners Living The Life and Minakshi from MACHIAVELLIAN mares, the very useful Helene Spirit and the Gr.3 winners Queen of the Sand and Rosso Corsa from mares by WOODMAN. His 12 foals out of KING’S BEST mares include the Gr.2 winner Larchmont Lad and SW Fourioso, so this is working very well. Footstepsinthesand’s dual 2019 Gr.2 winner Threat has a dam from the FAPPIANO branch.
Mares by DARSHAAN appeal as Footstepsinthesand has speedy Group winners with dams by DARSHAAN and his son MARK OF ESTEEM. DALAKHANI mares are another option. His Gr.3 2yo winner Marie’s Diamond is also out of a MILL REEF line mare, by KALANISI.
Footstepsinthesand is inbred to BLUSHING GROOM and has some black-type horses with a third line. His Gr.2-placed son Handsome Devil is inbred 3x3 to RAINBOW QUEST and his Gr.3 winner Arnold Lane is inbred 4x3 to RAHY.
The AHONOORA line could reinforce Footstepsinthesand’s juvenile ability, as he has two-year-old Listed winners out of mares by INDIAN RIDGE and his son COMPTON PLACE.
