      Site Issues Forced Upgrade   08/01/2017

      Hi I was forced to do an emergency upgrade to RaceCafe as we were suffering extended outages.  Everything seems OK now.  You will see a few visual issues with colours etc but I we get round to fixing those over the next few days.  The main priority was to get things up and running again. Cheers Admin

    Using mares from the male line of The Minstrel should be just as an effective way of line breeding to Nijinsky. These include Palace Music, Masterclass or Bakharoff

    I think its worth a look at some of the pedigrees of a breeder that produces outstanding results from only a handful of mares and had three winners at Caulfield on Saturday. I have read before 'line breeding' is at the very top of his list when planning matings and he breeds a Group One winner in less than every 10 runners.

    Mares either by or with subsequent dams by the stallions Tights, Generous, Western Symphony, Senor Pete, Royal Academy, Whiskey Road, Strawberry Road, etc will give duplications of Nijinsky in similar position.

    Examples of duplications of Nijinsky using 'the male line of the mare' and connecting with a stallion's 'brood-mare sires'
  8. New Stallion at Highview

    Nijinsky is the sire of Wrote's 3rd dam Durrah. Nijinsky is a horse well worth duplicating in pedigrees especially in this position. Having Nijinsky anywhere in the mares pedigree would help but I would think mares from the Nijinsky 'male line' would produce the best results.

    When assessing any mating the first place I look is the male line of the mare, and as we can see Iffraaj is from the male line of Mr Prospector. This will work perfectly with Wrote as he is from the Northern Dancer male line and this (Mr P /ND ) cross has proved an invaluable nick. It gives a duplication of Native Dancer, sire of Northern Dancer's dam. Adding to the mix is Iffraaj being out of a Nureyev mare which will give line breeding to Wrotes female line (duplicating the mare Special) The other pattern with the 2nd dam being by Zabeel just as important. The positions in the pedigree where the line breeding occurs (both in the mare and the stallion ) to my mind perfect. A further pattern not highlighted is between Nijinsky and The Minstrel.

    As well as the Sir Ivor duplication, making the Wrote / Zabeel mating even hotter is the line breeding to 'Special " Zabeel being out of a Nureyev mare.

    other successful racehorses sharing the barn with Ocean Park carry the same pattern. It's everywhere. The duplication of the 'mares mare line' Savabeel similar
