  • HARLAN’S HOLIDAY is responsible for arguably one of the hottest sire lines currently with Into Mischief

Harlan’s Holiday and his sons have shown an affinity for mares by a wide variety of Mr. Prospector line stallions. Particularly strong has been the cross with the Forty Niner, with Distorted Humor daughters at the forefront. The cross with mares by Gone West and his sons has been a prolific one with Speightstown, Elusive Quality, Grand Slam, Mr. Greeley and Proud Citizen all featuring. The Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector has done well, including through Unbridled and Unbridled’s Song, Empire Maker (sire of Pioneerof the Nile), Broken Vow, Victory Gallop (by Cryptoclearance, grandsire of Candy Ride) and Quiet American (grandsire of Midnight Lute). Also successful are mares descending from Mr. Prospector through Kingmambo and his son, Lemon Drop Kid; Seeking the Gold; Carson City; Street Cry and Street Sense; and Thunder Gulch. From the Northern Dancer line we can note success with mares from the Danzig branch, including via Danehill, Langfuhr and Hard Spun. The cross over Relaunch line mares has been a G1-producing one via daughters of Honour and Glory, with Tiznow and Skywalker branches also working here. The cross with Halo through Saint Ballado and Southern Halo (sire of More Than Ready) has done well. There is a HH G1W from a Wavering Monarch line mare, and that line would be interesting via Maria’s Mon and Super Saver, who gives a particularly intriguing mating. – Alan Porter
