Interesting pedigree this fella. Perhaps he's not quite a 'freak'but more an extremely judiciously bred individual.

He's got sex balanced crosses of Grey Sovereign and Bletchingly as well as being linebred to Danehill. For good measure there's even a dose of old Sir Ivor.

Throw in a magician as the trainer and you've got the kind of horse that keeps the dream alive.

Grey Sovereign is a wonderful sire to line breed to,  my preference is to see it  "on the male line of the mare"  will be mostly lower in pedigrees today.

Mares from the 'Grey Sovereign male line'  is a pattern that appears regularly in very smart horses by stallions that carry the blood of Easy Date (and Snippets ) .   Can be seen in the progeny of stallions like Pins, El Hermando (both deceased)    Not a Single Doubt and Snitzel.

Many of these latter two's highest priced yearlings are out of mares that have Grey Sovereign lower in their pedigrees.
