  • Out of a brilliant track record-setting sprinter from the Gone West sire line, HILDA’S PASSION

The cross of Sunday Silence line stallions with Storm Cat line mares has been exceptional, including a SW for Heart’s Cry out of a mare by Bernstein. Other Storm Cat strains to meet with success include Giant’s Causeway, Harlan’s Holiday (sire of Into Mischief), and Tabasco Cat. The Danzig branch of Northern Dancer has been successful: Heart’s Cry scoring with Danehill and Green Desert branches, and Sunday Silence with Belong to Me, Dayjur, and Hard Spun–also suggesting Langfuhr and War Front. The Deputy Minister branch has done well, including through Awesome Again and his son Ghostzapper, Dehere, French Deputy, Salt Lake, and Silver Deputy. Heart’s Cry has a G2W out of a mare by A.P. Indy and Sunday Silence has done well over this line via Tapit (by Pulpit, and bred similarly to Bernardini). There is also a GSW out of a Congrats mare, which suggests his brother Flatter, and the similarly-bred Malibu Moon and Mineshaft. Heart’s Cry has sired 3 GSWs, 1 G1W, out of mares by Unbridled’s Song and the Empire Maker and Rubiano branches of Fappiano have done well. From other Mr. Prospector branches, there is a G1W by Heart’s Cry from a mare by Machiavellian (grandsire of Street Sense), and he has worked well with Kingmambo (sire of Lemon Drop Kid). Other successful Mr. Prospector sources include Smart Strike (sire of Curlin) and the similarly-bred Distorted Humor and Fusaichi Pegasus. The Roberto branch has done well here, including through Brian’s Time, a very close relative to Dynaformer, and Symboli Kris S, who is by Kris S., sire of Arch and Rock Hard Ten. – Alan Porter
