Mating Recommendations for Instilled Regard

By: Alan Porter

Not only a grade one winner and four-time graded stakes winner, Instilled Regard is a grade one performer on dirt and turf, and from two to five years. He is by the multiple champion siring Arch, out of a daughter of Champion Heavenly Prize from the great Phipps family stemming from Champion Lady Pitt.


Arch and his sons have done very well with Mr. Prospector line mares. Instilled Regard’s second dam is by Seeking the Gold, and Arch’s champion, Blame, is out of a mare by that horse, so inbreeding to Seeking the Gold though such as Mutakddim, Petionville and Cape Town appears attractive.


Woodman and Miswaki are bred on the same cross as Seeking the Gold. Out of a Woodman mare, Arch has grade one winner Archarcharch, and from Miswaki line mares Arch has graded winner Arch Mistress out of a mare by Black Tie Affair, and his son, Blame, has grade one winner Marley’s Freedom out of a mare by Formal Gold.


From the Gone West branch of Mr. Prospector, a son of Arch has grade one winner Abscond out of a mare by Grand Slam, and stakes winners out of mares by Came Home and Dancer Master. This would also suggest mares by Speightstown and his son, Munnings; Mr. Greeley; Elusive Quality (sire of Quality Road and Elusive Quality) and Proud Citizen.


Arch has two stakes winners, one graded, out of mares by Kingmambo, sire of Lemon Drop Kid. There is a trio of stakes winners by Arch out of mares by Carson City, the sire of City Zip, Five Star Day, Good and Tough, Pollard’s Vison and Cuvee). A son of Arch has a graded winner out of a mare by Mr. Prospector grandson, Distorted Humor, and a graded winner out of a mare by Flower Alley, and Distorted Humor could also be brought in through Any Given Saturday, Drosselmeyer, Jimmy Creed and Maclean’s Music.


Arch has the grade one winning Arklow out of a mare by Empire Maker (the Pioneerof the Nile and Bodemeister; grandsire of Cairo Prince and American Pharoah) and Arch’s son, Blame, is sire of grade two winner Maraud, out of a mare by that horse. Empire Maker is by Unbridled, and there are also two graded winners by Arch and sons out of mares by Unbridled son, Unbridled’s Song (sire of Cross Traffic, Dunkirk, Eurosilver, Even the Score, First Defence, Half Ours, Midshipman, Old Fashioned, Rockport Harbor, Songandaprayer and Zensational). Other sources of Unbridled include Broken Vow, Grindstone (sire of Birdstone). Unbridled is by Fappiano, who is by Mr. Prospector out of a Dr. Fager mare, and the dam of Instilled Regard is by Forestry (granddam by Dr. Fager out of a three-quarters sister to the dam of Mr. Prospector) out of a mare by Mr. Prospector, so Fappiano should be positive here in general. Other sources that could be tried here include Cryptoclearance through Victory Gallop and Candy Ride (sire of Twirling Candy) and Too Much Bling (by Rubiano).


Installed Regard is the outstanding runner bred on the cross of Arch with Storm Cat line mares, but she should do well back over mares by sons and grandsons of Storm Cat. Overall, the cross of Arch and his sons with Storm Cat line mares has produced 18 stakes winners, including graded scorers out of mares by Giant’s Causeway (sire of Shamardal, First Samurai, Eskendereya and Creative Cause), D’Wildcat and his sire, Forest Wildcat (also sire of Wildcat Heir), Tabasco Cat and Bluegrass Cat. Installed Regard could also work with Storm Cat through such as Tale of the Cat (sire of Lion Heart, grandsire of Kantharos), Stormy Atlantic, Storm Boot, Pure Prize (a close relative to the dam of Instilled Regard), Stormin Fever, Harlan’s Holiday (sire of Into Mischief, Majesticperfection and Shanghai Bobby), Freud (a brother to Giant’s Causeway), Bernstein, Sir Cat, Tactical  Cat and Hennessy (sire of Henny Hughes and Johannesburg, grandsire of Scat Daddy).


Arch and sons have done well with Sadler’s Wells line mares with a grade one winner out of a mare by Horse Chestnut, a graded winner out of a mare by Black Sam Bellamy and a stakes winner out of a mare by that horse’s brother Galileo (represented in North America by Cape Blanco, Treasure Beach, Magican and Noble Bijiou). This would also suggest trying mares by El Prado (sire of Medaglia d’Oro, Kitten’s Joy, Artie Schiller and Paddy O’ Prado, and grandsire of Warrior’s Reward and Violence), Not Bourbon, Perfect Soul, Powerscourt and Sligo Bay. Nureyev is a three-quarters brother to Sadler’s Wells, and there are Arch line stakes winners out of mares by Nureyev sons Atticus and Theatrical, also suggesting mares by Fasliyev, Stravinsky and Spinning World.


From Dixieland Band mares, Arch and sons have sired four stakes winners, including the grade one winning Preservationist. This would encourage trying mares by Dixie Union or his son, Union Rags.


Arch is out of a mare by Danzig, but it could be worth crossing him back over mares from that line through such as Langfuhr, Ascot Knight, Polish Numbers, Dayjur, Belong to Me, War Front and Hard Spun. The Green Desert branch of Danzig is primarily found in Europe, but would be interesting here, as he is three-quarters brother to the dam of Arch.


Arch and sons have eight stakes winners out of mares by A.P. Indy and sons. This includes French Oaks winner Senga out of a mare by A.P. Indy himself, grade one winner Nadal out of a mare by Pulpit, and stakes winners out of mares by Bernardini, Flatter and Old Trieste. It would be possible to bring in Pulpit through such as Tapit (sire of Trappe Shot and Tapizar), Sky Mesa and Stroll. Other sons of A.P. Indy that might work are Mineshaft (sire of Discreetly Mine and Dialed In), Malibu Moon and Congrats – all bred on the same cross as Pulpit and Flatter. Arch has also been good with mares from the line of A.P. Indy’s sire, Seattle Slew, including a grade one winner out of a mare by Evansville Slew (a son of Slew City Slew) and stakes winners out of mares by Vindication, General Meeting and Slew o’ Gold.


The cross of Arch and sons with Blushing Groom line mares has been a very successful one, including graded winners by Rahy and Invasor, and stakes winners by Congaree, Housebuster (by Mt. Livermore, also sire of Orientate) It could also be worth considering the branch of Cherokee Run (sire of Kafwain and Yonaguska).

The In Reality line has done well under Arch line stallions. He has a pair of grade one winners out of mares by Known Fact (sire of Warning), two stakes winners out of mares by Valid Appeal (sire of Successful Appeal, Valid Expectations and Valid Wager) and grade one winner It Tiz Well is out of a mare by In Reality line sire Tiznow (sire of Tiz Wonderful, Gemologist, Morning Line, Colonel John, Tizway and Slew’s Tizzy).
