Other Group winners have dams by IN THE WINGS, SINGSPIEL and HURRICANE RUN. Mastercraftsman has Gr.2 and Gr.3 southern hemisphere winners out of MONTJEU mares and with a GALILEO mare sired a Gr.2 winner in Australia.
Mastercraftsman’s classic-winning son Kingston Hill is out of a RAINBOW QUEST mare, as is his talented son Restorer. His outstanding daughter Alpha Centauri has a dam by RAHY and Gr.3 winner Dessertoflife has a dam by SPECTRUM. Mastercraftsman merits more mares with BLUSHING GROOM blood.
He sired dual Gr.1 winner Amazing Maria and a SW from daughters of STORM CAT’s son TALE OF THE CAT, plus Gr.3 winners from daughters of FOREST WILDCAT and HENNESSY. Wind Chimes has a dam by JOHANNESBURG.
Danehill Dancer has Gr.2 and Gr.3 winners inbred 3x3 to SHARPEN UP and others inbred 3x4 to him, so Mastercraftsman is a likeable option for mares from this line.
He has a very useful French filly with a dam by KINGMAMBO and two SWs out of grand-daughters of KINGMAMBO, as well as a top-class son with a KINGMAMBO second dam. Five of Mastercraftsman’s Group winners have dams sired by grandsons of MR PROSPECTOR, including two by GONE WEST’s sons ZAMINDAR and MR GREELEY.
Mastercraftsman has a Gr.3 winner out of a CAERLEON mare. His sire Danehill Dancer did particularly well with the NIJINSKY branch, which supplied him with two of his classic winners.
Danehill Dancer’s smart performers inbred 3x4 to DANZIG include a Gr.1 two-year-old winner. Mastercraftsman’s Gr.2 winner Vintager (dam by ORPEN) is inbred 4x4 to DANZIG. He also has a Group-placed performer with a dam by OASIS DREAM, a New Zealand Gr.1 winner and a British Gr.3 winner with second dams by GREEN DESERT.
Mastercraftsman has two SWs out of mares by the ROBERTO line sire RED RANSOM.
Mastercraftsman should suit the NEVER BEND line. He has Group-placed performers out of daughters of SHIRLEY HEIGHTS and DARSHAAN, and three of his Group winners have DARSHAAN second dams.
