Rebel Dane is a stallion with a strongly line bred pedigree to which broodmares should respond well in matings.

Rebel Dane carries LA TROIENNE family members More Than Ready, Woodman, Buckpasser (twice), Poker, Jet Action and Beau Brummel. CONGRATS, PRIVATE ACCOUNT, NOBLE BIJOU, BELONG TO ME, RHYTHM, BUPERS, FRANCIS S, HOOK MONEY, CORNISH PRINCE, MR. BUSHER, PARDAL, THE AXE II, ARDAN and BIMELECH are other LA TROIENNE family members to seek in matings.

Carrying Seattle Slew on his third remove, Rebel Dane may appreciate reinforcement of this, the FRIZETTE family. He also carries one line to Mr. Prospector on his fifth remove. Individuals such as SING SING, DJEDDAH, ROAN ROCKET, TWENTY FOUR KARAT, GREGORIAN, FERDINAND, JET PILOT, TO MARKET, LOMOND, MUKADDAMAH, OMAN and more MR PROSPECTOR in mares’ pedigrees are desirable.

As the presence of SEATTLE SLEW is through a daughter in Rebel Dane’s pedigree, mares with sons of Seattle Slew will create a sex balanced duplication. Examples are AIR DE FRANCE, NINE CARAT and A.P. INDY via sons such as BERNARDINI and CONGRATS.

Seattle Slew’s half brother LOMOND is the sire of successful sire, CITIDANCER, so his daughters or granddaughters would also be appealing for Rebel Dane.

California Dane’s dam is closely related to leading US sire CAPOTE (also by Seattle Slew and from the same immediate family). His son AGINCOURT stood here and has a handful of daughters (and many more that carry him as grandsire) which can exploit this pattern.

Northfields, sire of Northjet in California Dane’s pedigree, is a half brother to HABITAT.  Mares carrying Habitat such as daughters and granddaughters of ARCH SCULPTOR, CHIMES SQUARE, EXPORT PRICE, LORD SEYMOUR and BASSENTHWAITE are sought, as are daughters of GRAND LODGE and METAL STORM, who have Habitat as their damsires.

KENMARE and sons such as KELTRICE, KENFAIR, METAL STORM, TRIBU and VERGLAS sex balance Kalamoun for Rebel Dane.  The same applies with mares carrying KALAGLOW. Daughters of former Swettenham stalwart DASH FOR CASH offer Kalaglow.

A grandson of Danehill, Rebel Dane also carries Halo and four lines to fellow ALMAHMOUD family member, Northern Dancer. Broodmares with other ALMAHMOUD descendants such as ORPEN, WAY OF LIGHT, MACHIAVELLIAN, ESPERERO, EXIT TO NOWHERE, CANNONADE, CATRAIL, EL MOXIE, YOUTHFUL LEGS, L’EMIGRANT and ARCTIC TERN in their pedigrees provide significant reinforcement for Rebel Dane.

Mares carrying Star Kingdom have also worked well with Rebel Dane’s grandsire Danehill and damsire More Than Ready.  He does carry a duplication of this influence via his third damsire Blue And Gold, however other individuals to look in mares’ pedigrees for include BLETCHINGLY, BUREAUCRACY, COVETOUS, HURRICANE SKY, KENNY’S BEST PAL, MARSCAY, TODMAN, SHIFNAL and WEASEL CLAUSE.

New Zealand stalwart SIR TRISTRAM also appears in several stakes winning Danehill and More Than Ready progeny. In addition, Rebel Dane carries two lines two Round Table through sons while Sir Tristram carries a daughter of Round Table.  Sources of Sir Tristram include KAAPSTAD, LONHRO, DENMAN, MARAUDING, MILITARY PLUME, OCTAGONAL and ZABEEL.  California Dane’s Group 1 winner PLATINUM WITNESS has Sir Tristram as her damsire.

Top class broodmare sire ENCOSTA DE LAGO has an affinity with Danehill line sires.  Of his eight Group 1 winners in the role of damsire, five of them fit this description. His daughters and those of his several sire sons are appealing mates for Rebel Dane.
