Inbred to Northern Dancer, Snippetson will welcome Mr. Prospector line mares by such sires as Woodman, Unbridled’s Song, Rhythm, Bellotto, Geiger Counter, El Moxie, Canadian Silver, Varick, Thunder Gulch, Secret Savings, Clear Choice, Straight Strike and Umatilla. 

STAR KINGDOM not only works very well with Northern Dancer, but also Silly Season (grandsire of Snippets) who is from Star Kingdom’s family. Mares carrying such influences as Bletchingly, Marscay, Todman, Shifnal and Noholme II are appealing. 

The Halo line is also desirable for Snippetson, as he is from Northern Dancer’s family.  He is accessed through Don’t Say Halo, More Than Ready, Irgun and Rivotious mares.

Snippets’ damsire Grand Chaudiere is from the SUNSHOT family.  Bold Reason, Solferino and Never Bend are other family members to seek. Mares by sons of Sadler’s Wells, Fairy King, Tate Gallery, Scenic, Brief Truce, Spectrum, Don’t Say Halo and Hula Chief are some which supply these influences.

Sadler’s Wells, Tate Gallery and Fairy King are from the same family as Thatching and his sire Thatch in Snippetson.  Nureyev, Geiger Counter, Val De Loir, Lorenzaccio and Open Day are other relations.  Zabeel (his son Octagonal etc) and Baryshnikov carry family members.

Snippetson is from the immediate family of Al Hareb.

Snippetson is bred on reinforcement of the LA CHICA family via Misty Day, Native Dancer (twice) and Misty Morn.  Secret Savings, Successor, Bold Lad, Gray Phantom and What A Pleasure are other family members which will boost this pattern.
