With very healthy statistics at time of writing of over 90% runners to foals, 65.5% winners to runners and 5% stakes winners to runners, Artie Schiller is a very appealing sire.

Top class two year old FLYING ARTIE is out of a RUBITON mare, tracing to BETTER BOY via CENTURY.  Flying Artie’s dam is actually inbred to Better Boy. Other male descendants of this line to look for in broodmares include CENTAINE, KINJITE, DOUBLE CENTURY and EUCLASE.

Better Boy is a son of MY BABU, who reinforces the MARCHETTA family line for Artie Schiller, who carries Ambiorix and a duplication of Turn-to from this line.

US Gr 1 winner MY CONQUESTADORY is out of a Malibu Moon mare, a son of A.P. INDY, in turn a son of SEATTLE SLEW. This line can be sourced in Australia via mares by BERNARDINI, CONGRATS, AIR DE FRANCE, AGINCOURT, KHOZAAM, NINE CARAT, PULPIT, WARRING NATIONS and YONDER.

As a grandson of Sadler’s Wells, Artie Schiller should respond well to reinforcement of the GOODY TWO SHOES family. He has already produced stakes winners from mares by fellow family member APALACHEE, SECOND EMPIRE (Fairy King) and THEATRICAL (Nureyev). Apart from Sadler’s Wells’ brothers TATE GALLERY and FAIRY KING (sire of ENCOSTA DE LAGO, FALBRAV and HELISSIO) and three quarter brother NUREYEV, influences in mares such as THATCH, his son THATCHING, VAL DE LOIR, LORENZACCIO, MARQUIS DE SADE, GEIGER COUNTER, YEATS, INFLATE, WINDSOR SLIPPER, FOX MYTH, REFORM, PERUGINO, CAMPO CATINO, TOPSIDER, FESTIVAL HALL, NORTHERN METEOR and OPEN DAY are appealing for Artie Schiller. ZABEEL mares not only carry Nureyev, they also have family member Val De Loir.

El Prado is out of a daughter of SIR IVOR. Creation of a sex balanced duplication of this influence would be effected by using mares tracing to SIR TRISTRAM, GIELGUD, TIERCE and MYOCARD for example.

The STORM BIRD line has experienced good success with Artie Schiller, with Gr 2 winner GOOD STANDING out of a GIANT’S CAUSEWAY mare and a US Gr 3 winner out of a SEA WALL mare. He can be sourced via mares by sires such as SHAMARDAL, HENNESSY, TALE OF THE CAT, GIO PONTI, BLUEBIRD, DOLPHIN STREET, VAN NISTELROOY, JOHANNESBURG, MUKADDAMAH and BLACK MINNALOUSHE.

Gr 1 Rosehill Guineas winner LASER HAWK is out of a mare by CANNY LAD.

Artie Schiller has LADY JOSEPHINE family members unusually close up in his pedigree. The great Nasrullah in on his fourth remove.  He has several other key ancestors within six generations including multiples of Royal Charger, Mahmoud, Fair Trial as well as Aristophanes.  Daughters of family members NEDIYM, NORTH REEF, OCTAGONAL, KAAPSTAD, COMMANDS, DANEWIN, KEMPINSKY, MOUAWAD, KALAMOUN, MOSSMAN, KBENJAR and NASSIPOUR reinforce this line.  Further back in pedigrees, BADRUDDIN, MIGOLI, NILO, FAUX TIRAGE, TUDOR MINSTREL, NIZAMI, FURROKH SIYAR, JAMBO, ARISTOPHANES, ABERNANT, and PRINCE TAJ are desirable.

The DANZIG line has produced a number of stakes winners for Artie Schiller with stakes winners coming from mares by LURE, LANGFUHR, CAPE CROSS, WAR CHANT, SNAADEE and PINE BLUFF. Mares by AD VALOREM, ANABAA, BELONG TO ME, BIANCONI, CHIEF’S viagra pas cher CROWN, DESERT SUN, GOLDEN SNAKE, HARD SPUN, INVINCIBLE SPIRIT, MAROOF, MISTER C, KHELEY, ORPEN and PERUGINO (and son TESTA ROSSA) are some of the many sources of Danzig in mares.

The BOUDOIR family is represented by Majestic Prince, grandsire of Artie Schiller’s dam Hidden Light. HIS MAJESTY (damsire of DANEHILL), YOUR HOST, T.V. COMMERCIAL, CROWNED PRINCE, SECRETO, RAISE A CROWN, WHISKEY ROAD and OUR POETIC PRINCE are also amongst its members.

The MR. PROSPECTOR sire line looks very appealing for Artie Schiller. Already he has produced Gr 1 winner WE MISS ARTIE out of a FUSAICHI PEGASUS mare and Gr 3 winner DAYTONA GREY out of an UNBRIDLED’S SONG mare. Mares by sires including HUSSONET, ELUSIVE QUALITY, MACHIAVELLIAN, RHYTHM, STRAIGHT STRIKE, STREET CRY, KINGMAMBO, THUNDER GULCH, VETTORI, E DUBAI and DISTORTED HUMOR or carrying WOODMAN, BELLOTTO, FAPPIANO, GEIGER COUNTER or MACHIAVELLIAN are candidates.

The KENMARE line has also experienced success with Artie Schiller. Daughters of KENVAIN and KELTRICE have produced Gr 3 winners to-date.  Other descendants include VERGLAS, KENDOR, BARYSHNIKOV, KENFAIR, TRIBU, MISTER KWILA and METAL STORM.
