Yes Yes Yes is a direct descendant of GRAND DUCHESS, also the ancestress of Blushing Groom, who appears on his fourth remove. Mares carrying individuals such as MILL REEF (tail male ancestor of DOYOUN, MILLIONAIRE, SHIRLEY HEIGHTS, DALAKHANI), FUJIKISEKI, MAGIC RING, WESTERN SYMPHONY and PIPE OF PEACE can reinforce this line.

MISS SWAPSCO is the ancestress of Blushing Groom’s son Rahy. This is the female family of SINGSPIEL, a half brother to Rahy, as well as SAINT BALLADO, DEVIL’S BAG, RIVOTIOUS, JAN MURRAY and MANSHOOD, who may appear further back in mares’ pedigrees.

Yes Yes Yes’ sire Rubick is a descendant of the influential TORPENHOW.  Rubick is closely related to REDOUTE’S CHOICE. Yes Yes Yes also carries fellow TORPENHOW family member Nijinsky II (twice). As well as these three, Yes Yes Yes would benefit from the presence of other TORPENHOW family members in mares, such as AL MAHER, TRY MY BEST (sire of WAAJIB and LAST TYCOON – sire of O’REILLY, TOWKAY, MARJU and BIGSTONE), THE MINSTREL (sire of PALACE MUSIC, BAKHAROFF and MASTERCLASS), NIAGARA, DOMESDAY, GOOD JOURNEY, HURRICANE SKY, XAAR, UMATILLA, NEW REGENT, EL GRAN SENOR, SPINNING WORLD and GIELGUD.

His great-grandsire Fairy King is a brother to SADLER’S WELLS and TATE GALLERY and a three-quarter brother to NUREYEV, all of whose female descendants are great candidates for Yes Yes Yes. Mares by Nureyev line sires such as STRAVINSKY, SPINNING WORLD (sire of THORN PARK), STARCRAFT, (sire of STAR WITNESS), PEINTRE CELEBRE, PIVOTAL, GOOD JOURNEY and ASHKALANI suit. The Sadler’s Wells line can be sourced via such damsires as GALILEO, HIGH CHAPARRAL, BARATHEA, SINGSPIEL, EL PRADO (sire of ARTIE SCHILLER), KING OF KINGS, MONTJEU (sire of TAVISTOCK), SCENIC and CARNEGIE, amongst many others.

Encosta De Lago is from the FANFRELUCHE family. Other members include FLYING SPUR, HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR, KHELEYF, D’ACCORD and L’ENJOLEUR (who appears in the pedigree of sires ST. REIMS and KITTEN’S JOY).

Rubick’s damsire Rock of Gibraltar traces to RIVER LADY, also ancestress of RIVERMAN. Sources of Riverman to seek include BRIEF TRUCE, RIVOTIOUS, EXIT TO NOWHERE and LOUP SAUVAGE.

The presence of Danehill, Halo and six lines to Northern Dancer suggest other ALMAHMOUD family members such as ORPEN, WAY OF LIGHT, MACHIAVELLIAN (sire of STREET CRY and VETTORI), ESPERERO, EXIT TO NOWHERE, CATRAIL, EL MOXIE and ARCTIC TERN. Sons of HALO to sex balance the daughter (Rahy’s dam) are also appealing. He is sire of SUNDAY SILENCE, DON’T SAY HALO and grandsire of MORE THAN READY (sire of SEBRING). Yes Yes Yes’ female family is working with DANEHILL, with stakes winners by three of his sons in the pedigree, including dual Group 1 winner In Her Time (by Time Thief by Redoute’s Choice).

Sons of Mr Prospector work well with several elements in Yes Yes Yes’ pedigree, and will also sex balance the daughter, second dam of Encosta De Lago. They include FUSAICHI PEGASUS, HUSSONET, MACHIAVELLIAN (sire of VETTORI and STREET CRY), RHYTHM, KINGMAMBO, STRAIGHT STRIKE, E DUBAI, DISTORTED HUMOR, THUNDER GULCH, UNBRIDLED’S SONG, WOODMAN, FAPPIANO and GEIGER COUNTER.

The SIR TRISTRAM line works very well with both Encosta De Lago and Rubick’s close maternal relation, Redoute’s Choice.  Daughters of descendants such as LONHRO, PIERRO, KAAPSTAD, SOVEREIGN RED, MARAUDING, GROSVENOR, DON EDUARDO, MILITARY PLUME, SAVABEEL, OCTAGONAL, ZABEEL and DR. GRACE are desirable for Yes Yes Yes.
