Nearly all of of Manner Hill’s best progeny have either one or two lines of STAR KINGDOM through their dams. His stakes placed daughter Sumakaray is out of a mare who is inbred to Star Kingdom via TODMAN and KAORU STAR. Stakes placegetter Kinselmac Manner (and two city winning full siblings Our Protocol and King of Manners) is out of a mare by BLETCHINGLY‘s grandson BEAUREAUCRACY and carries Star Kingdom’s descendants PAINT THE STARS, LUSKIN STAR and KAORU STAR, working up her dam’s sire line. City winner Convent Hill is out of a mare by Bletchingly’s son, BLETCHENCORE. Melbourne winner Virenque has ZEPHYR BAY (by BISCAY) as his second damsire. Brisbane winner Feisty Manner is out of a MARSCAY mare. Others to seek from this sire line include FINAL CARD, BLAZING SWORD, HULA CHIEF, NOHOLME II, TATTENHAM, SHIFNAL, JACKSON SQUARE, SIR LAURENCE, CANNY LAD and TODMAN.
Manner Hill traces to taproot mare BACKGROUND on his tail female line. This is also the family of exciting young stallions, Delago Deluxe, Duporth, Tickets and Excites. While the latter two have Danehill up too close in their pedigrees to have daughters compatible with Manner Hill, DELAGO DELUXE and DUPORTH mares will in the future, create positive dynamic line breeding with him.
Stakes placegetter Sumakaray and 7-time winning full brother Triumphant One are out of a mare by LAKE CONISTON, a son of BLUEBIRD. Bluebird is also the damsire of Happy Giggle in Melbourne winner Harlequin Manner’s pedigree.
Manner Hill’s Danzig sire line has always worked well with MR. PROSPECTOR line mares. Manner Hill himself has produced multiple winners including My Hope (dam by OROJOYA), Dugo’s Sprite (WOODMAN), Jellybean Jack (GEIGER COUNTER) and two winners out of BELLOTTO mares, all tracing to Mr. Prospector. Other damsires from this line include HUSSONET, RHYTHM, THUNDER GULCH KINGMAMBO, STRAIGHT STRIKE, MACHIAVELLIAN, ELUSIVE QUALITY, UMATILLA, SECRET SAVINGS, EL MOXIE, JADE ROBBERY, DISTORTED HUMOR, END SWEEP, INFLATE, VETTORI and FAPPIANO.
Manner Hill’s damsire Amyntor is by Sir Gaylord. He is a half brother to SECRETARIAT, who is desirable in matings for Manner Hill. Amongst many others, he can be found in mares by DEHERE, ANY GIVEN SATURDAY, BERNARDINI, STORM CAT (and sons TALE OF THE CAT, CONSOLIDATOR, HENNESSY etc). Manner Hill’s Melbourne winner and consistent city performer Mannopoly is out of a mare by DEHERE.

Manner Hill has worked with Colonial stalwart, RORY’S JESTER. Melbourne winner Harlequin Manner is out of a mare by Rory’s Jester’s son, HAPPY GIGGLE.
Manner Hill’s second damsire Knightly Manner is a brother to DIGNITAS. He can be sourced through mares by HAULPAK and his sons such as CARRY A SMILE and CHANTECLAIR. This is also the family of U.S. sire FORTY NINER. His broodmare descendants are by sires such as END SWEEP, DISTORTED HUMOR (sire of ANY GIVEN SATURDAY), GOLD FEVER and TWINING.
Danehill and his grandsire Northern Dancer are ALMAHMOUD family members. Reinforcement of this prepotent female family can be achieved with mares carrying HALO or MACHIAVELLIAN. Mares by MORE THAN READY, DON’T SAY HALO, DUBLEO, FUJI KISEKI, TAYASU TSUYOSHI, SOUTHERN IMAGE, IRGUN and SUNDAY SILENCE provide Halo, while Machiavellian can be sourced with mares by STREET CRY, VETTORI or NO EXCUSE NEEDED.
Sex balancing DANEHILL by using mares carrying daughters of this influence is a good inbreeding option for Manner Hill. Mares whose damsire or second damsire is Danehill qualify.
