Mating Recommendations for NORTHERN AFLEET

By: Alan Porter

A Champion Siring grandson of Mr. Prospector, Northern Afleet, has sired more than 60 stakes winners, 24 graded, and ten of them graded one. He is also grandsire and maternal grandsire of grade one winners.

Northern Afleet has demonstrated a powerful affinity for mares from various branches of the Hail to Reason line. Out of a mare by Hawkster (by Silver Hawk, a son of Roberto), he has sired dual classic-winning Champion Afleet Alex, and stakes-winning and graded-placed Unforgettable Max. He has also sired the graded stakes winner Where’s Sterling out of a mare by another son of Silver Hawk in Benny The Dip. Out of a mare by Robert son Kris S., Northern Afleet has sired 2014 grade two winner Kaigun, suggesting trying mares by Kris S. sons such as Arch, You and I, Prized, Brocco, Rock Hard Ten and Kissin Kris. Roberto might also be introduced via Lear Fan (giving line-breeding to the family of Northern Afleet’s maternal grandsire, Nureyev), Red Ransom and Dynaformer. Northern Afleet’s graded stakes winner Saint Afleet is out of a mare by Saint Ballado (by Hail to Reason line stallion Halo), a horse whose sons include Saint Liam, Yankee Victor, Captain Bodgit, Flame Thrower and Sweetsouthernsaint, and he also has a stakes winner out of a mare by Devil’s Bag, a brother to Saint Ballado. Halo could also be brought in through Southern Halo (sire of More Than Ready).

Northern Afleet has sired two grade one winners out of In Reality line mares in the shape of Big City Man, out of a mare by Valid Appeal, and Negligee out of a mare by Relaunch as well as a stakes winner out of a Mister Jolie mare. This suggests that further success may be found with mares by Valid Wager, Valid Expectations, Successful Appeal, Honour and Glory, Put It Back, Cee’s Tizzy, Tiznow, Bertrando, Officer and Known Fact.

Northern Afleet is bred on the same cross as outstanding international sire Kingmambo. Like that horse, he has enjoyed success with the Seattle Slew line having sired stakes winners out of mares by Seattle Slew, Secret Slew and Aptitude (by A.P. Indy). This suggests mares by virtually any Seattle Slew line horse could be worth considering, candidates include A.P. Indy (and sons such as Pulpit, Malibu Moon, Mineshaft, Flatter, Congrats and Golden Missile, as well as grandsons such as Tapit, Sky Mesa and Stroll), Slew o’Gold, Avenue of Flags, Capote (and his son Boston Harbor), Fast Play, General Meeting (sire of the second dam of Northern Afleet’s grade one scorer Evening Jewel), Metfield, Seattle Song, Septieme Ciel, Slew City Slew, Slewpy, Tsunami Slew and Williamstown.

Northern Afleet’s dam is inbred to Nearctic (the sire of Northern Dancer), and goes back in tail-female line to a three-quarter-sister to that horse. Not surprisingly then, he has done well when bred back over Northern Dancer line mares.  Northern Afleet has the grade one winner Evening Jewel out of a mare by Giant’s Causeway, a grandson of Storm Bird and stakes winners out of mares by Personal Hope (by Storm Bird) and Storm Cat and his son, Bernstein. This makes sons of Storm Cat particularly interesting to introduce through son such as Tale of the Cat, Storm Boot, Forest Wildcat, Forestry and Stormy Atlantic. Other branches of Northern Dancer to enjoy success under Northern Afleet are Nijinsky II (including a grade one winner out of a mare by Royal Academy and a stakes winner out of a mare by Sky Classic, with other options from this line including Strawberry Road, Shadeed and Alydeed); Deputy Minister (including a graded stakes winners out of a mare by Dehere, with other sources including Awesome Again, Ghostzapper, Touch Gold, Silver Deputy and Salt Lake); Danzig (including a stakes winner out of a mare Honor Grades with other options including Chief’s Crown, Belong to Me, Boundary, Dayjur, War Chant, Exchange Rate, Hard Spun and War Front); and Lyphard. Northern Afleet has a stakes winner out of a mare by King’s Theatre -by Sadler’s Wells - a cross that could also be tried here with mares by El Prado and his sons Medaglia d’Oro, Kitten’s Joy and Artie Schiller. Northern Dancer is by Nearctic, and from the Icecapade branch of that line through Wild Again, there is a graded one winner out of a mare by Wild Event and a stakes winner out of a mare by Bright Again.

From his own Mr. Prospector line, Northern Afleet has sired a grade one winner out of a mare by Gone West, and a stakes winner out of a mare by his grandson El Corredor, suggesting El Corredor’s sire Mr. Greeley, as well as Grand Slam, Elusive Quality, Speightstown and Proud Citizen), a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Crafty Prospector, a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Vettori (by Machiavellian, also sire of Street Cry ), and stakes winners out of mares by Jules (by Forty Niner, also sire Distorted Humor, Coronado’s Quest, Editor’s Note, End Sweep, Trippi, Gold Fever, Roar, Gold Case and Twining), Quiet American and Unbridled’s Song (sire of Songandaprayer, Dunkirk, Rockport Harbor, First Defence and Old Fashioned).

Northern Afleet is sire of multiple grade one winner Teaks North from a mare by the Graustark horse, High Honors, and he also has a stakes winner out of a mare by Pleasant Tap (by Pleasant Colony), a son of Graustark’s brother, His Majesty, with Pleasant Colony also being available through such as Colonial Affair and Pleasantly Perfect.

Northern Afleet is sire of Champion Sprinter Amazombie from a daughter of In Excess (sire of Indian Charlie), and he also has a grade one winner out of a mare by Broad Brush (sire of Include).
