Sioux Nation

Sioux Nation followed No Nay Never as the second son of Scat Daddy to win the Gr.2 Norfolk Stakes and then followed Caravaggio as the second son of Scat Daddy to win the Gr.1 Phoenix Stakes. Sioux Nation also won the Gr.3 Lacken Stakes over six furlongs at three.

DANZIG is back in the fifth generation of Sioux Nation’s foals. He already has Gr.3 winner Lakota Sioux with a grandam by DANEHILL. Grand-daughters of DANEHILL have been working well with No Nay Never including daughters of EXCEED AND EXCEL (Champion Ten Sovereigns), ROCK OF GIBRALTAR (Gr.2 scorer Land Force) and FASTNET ROCK (Gr.2 NZ winner Need I Say More). No Nay Never’s top daughter Alcohol Free is out of a daughter of HARD SPUN, who also sired the dam of Sioux Nation’s Group-placed daughter Kinta.

GREEN DESERT is already playing his part in Sioux Nation’s success. The Group-winning Sydneyarms Chelsea and the Group-placed Ocean Quest are both inbred 3x3 to OASIS DREAM, while his speedy daughter Ocean Jewel is inbred 4x2 to GREEN DESERT. No Nay Never’s dual Gr.1 2yo winner Blackbeard is out of a mare by BORN TO SEA, a son of INVINCIBLE SPIRIT, who in turn sired the dam of Gr.2 winner Trillium. Another Gr.2 winner, Aesop’s Fable, is out of a daughter of SHINKO FOREST, another son of GREEN DESERT.

NUREYEV’s son THEATRICAL sired the grandam of No Nay Never’s Gr.1 winner Ten Sovereigns, while PIVOTAL filled the same position in the pedigree of Blackbeard. NUREYEV also appears in the pedigree of Sioux Nation’s Gr.3 winner Sydneyarms Chelsea.

Scat Daddy has two Gr.1 winners inbred 4x3 to STORM CAT. Sioux Nation’s stakes winner Matilda Picotte is inbred to STORM CAT as her dam is by ONE COOL CAT.

Sioux Nation already has a Group winner from a daughter of TAMAYUZ and black-type earners with second dams by GONE WEST and DISTANT VIEW. No Nay Never is also thriving with mares with MR PROSPECTOR blood.

Sioux Nation is worth trying with mares by MONTJEU, HIGH CHAPARRAL and GALILEO. Mares by HIGH CHAPARRAL have produced two Gr.3 winners to No Nay Never, and their first three runners by Sioux Nation are all winners, including the Listed-placed pair Lakota Seven and Estrosa. No Nay Never also sired a Gr.2-winner from a daughter of SADLER’S WELLS and Gr.3 winner Midnight Mile from a GALILEO mare.

The SHIRLEY HEIGHTS male line has made its mark. No Nay Never’s smart son Wichita had a dam by DASHING BLADE, while the 2YO Gr.3 winner Midnight Mile is out of a GALILEO mare. Sioux Nation’s Gr.3 winner Lakota Sioux is out of a DALAKHANI mare as is No Nay Never’s Gr.1 winner Meditate.

The ROYAL APPLAUSE line, including son ACCLAMATION and grandsons MEHMAS and DARK ANGEL, is well equipped to help Sioux Nation sire fast and precocious runners.

No Nay Never has a Gr.3 winner with a dam by INDIAN RIDGE and he also has three Group winners, including two Gr.2 winners, with second dams by INDIAN RIDGE.
