GOLD TRIP (Fr)

Gold Trip’s pedigree possesses several stamina-producing ancestors, which have combined to create this impressive performer who won Group 1 events from 2000 metres through to the Melbourne Cup distance of 3200m.

Those ancestors, which include Rainbow Quest, Blushing Groom and Sadler’s Wells, can be ‘sharpened up’ by line breeding to more sprint-based family members and sex balancing these influences.

Gold Trip’s second damsire is Rainbow Quest. This line can be reinforced by fellow family members WARNING (sire of PICCOLO and DIKTAT – grandsire of DREAM AHEAD) and SCENIC (sire of BLEVIC).

Sadler’s Wells and Nureyev in Gold Trip’s pedigree are members of the GOODY TWO SHOES family.  Influential members of this family which would enhance this line are Sadler’s Wells’ brothers TATE GALLERY and FAIRY KING, plus PERUGINO, VAL DE LOIR, GEIGER COUNTER, YEATS, RIDAN, LORENZACCIO, MARQUIS DE SADE, THATCH, THATCHING, INFLATE, REFORM, CAMPO CATINO, TOPSIDER, FESTIVAL HALL, DREAMSCAPE and OPEN DAY.

Sadler’s Wells’ brother FAIRY KING is accessible via mares by ENCOSTA DE LAGO, his sons NEEDS FURTHER, RUBICK, MANHATTAN RAIN and NORTHERN METEOR (and his sons DEEP FIELD, ZOUSTAR, EUROZONE and SHOOTING TO WIN). Other sons of Fairy King include FALBRAV, ADVENTUROUS, REVOQUE, SHINKO KING, SECOND EMPIRE, VICTORY NOTE and HELISSIO.

Descendants of fellow ALMAHMOUD family member MACHIAVELLIAN include STREET CRY, STREET BOSS, PER INCANTO, STREET SENSE and VETTORI.

HALO line broodmares are also desirable.  A fellow ALMAHMOUD family member to Danehill and Northern Dancer, Halo can be found via daughters / granddaughters of MORE THAN READY (and sons BETTER THAN READY and SEBRING), DON’T SAY HALO, FUJI KISEKI, SOUTHERN IMAGE, DUBLEO and IRGUN.

SUNDAY SILENCE is another influential son of Halo. He appears on the tail male line of DEEP IMPACT (sons MIKKI ISLE, STAPHANOS, REAL IMPACT, SATONO ALADDIN), FUJI KISEKI, ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, KEEP THE FAITH, HEART’S CRY, TOSEN PHANTOM (son BRAVE SMASH), TAYASU TSUYOSHI and ZENNO ROB ROY.

Gold Trip’s damsire Dubai Destination traces to PHYDILLA, also the ancestress of AGNES WORLD (damsire of BETTER THAN READY) and LIBRETTIST.

Sex balancing his second damsire Rainbow Quest – an effective speed pattern – can be achieved via mares carrying QUEST FOR FAME (son VISCOUNT), SPECTRUM (sons GOLAN and HEMINGWAY) and URGENT REQUEST.

The PARAFFIN family is prominently represented by Outstrip and El Prado, with many others further back than seven generations. Other members include I AM INVINCIBLE, ANABAA, ZEDITAVE, SHIRLEY HEIGHTS, ZOFFANY, BELLOTTO, SPECTRUM, GOLD CARAT, SEQUALO, RORY’S JESTER, ADMIRAL’S WALK, AHONOORA, LADAS, HAWAII, MUMMY’S PET, ARCH SCULPTOR, WHISTLER, BEND OR, CASE ACE, BOLD REASONING, NEVER SAY DIE, IDEAL PLANET, DARLING BOY, SPEAK JOHN, SPOILED LAD, SHEPHERD’S FIELD and MAGPIE and would further enhance this family strength.

Outstrip’s second damsire Silver Hawk is also sire of Grass Wonder, grandsire of MAURICE. His daughters create a sex balanced duplication of Silve Hawk.  Silver Hawk traces to CHIMERE FABULEUSE (21-a), from the same family as PAPAL POWER, a stallion who may appear further back in mares’ pedigrees.

FRIZETTE (13) family members Lomond, Seattle Slew and Mr Prospector will benefit from other family members in mares, such as ARTIE SCHILLER, ROAN ROCKET, SING SING, DJEDDAH, BALDRIC II, GREGORIAN, FERDINAND, JET PILOT, TO MARKET, MUKADDAMAH and OMAN.

Blushing Groom and Mill Reef are members of the GRAND DUCHESS dynasty.  Individuals such as FUJIKISEKI, MAGIC RING and WESTERN SYMPHONY are desirable in mares to boost this line.

The duplication of Sir Ivor through two daughters in Gold Trip may appreciate the presence of his son SIR TRISTRAM in mares, creating a sex balanced speed pattern. Daughters of his sharper descendants such as LONHRO, DENMAN and PIERRO suit.

Sir Gaylord (three lines) and Alleged are CINQ A SEPT family members. Sir Gaylord’s half brother SECRETARIAT and SUPER GRAY also trace to her. Secretariat can be sourced via broodmare sires such as DEHERE, A P INDY (descendants including BERNARDINI, TAPIT and FROSTED), AKAABER, VOLKSRAAD, THUNDER GULCH, STORM CAT, LION CAVERN, KINGSTON RULE, HONOR GRADES, CHIEF’S CROWN, AL KHAWANEEG, AKAABER and GONE WEST (son ELUSIVE QUALITY, grandson IFFRAAJ). Gold Trip’s sire Outstrip has produced a Group 3 winner from an Iffraaj mare.
