That this could be one of the key elements to develop High Chaparral’s talent is proved by the pedigrees of other black-type winners with the same inbreeding.
Although the stallion’s stay in New Zealand makes up 35% of all his black-type winners, if we look at horses who won a black-type race as two-year-old, only one was foaled in the Southern Hemisphere while eight in the North.
If we count in three Irish-bred later black-type winners who placed in black-type as two-year-old (none such horse can be found in New Zealand), the difference is yet more pronounced.
While he had only five black-type winners in his first European crop, the best of them being three Gr.3 winners (Magadan, Senlis and Unsung Heroine), the first crop in New Zealand produced four Gr.1 winners, including the ten-time Gr.1 winner So You Think, later successful in Europe too, the winner of the Caulfield Cup Descarado, the winner of the Victoria Derby Monaco Consul and Shoot Out, the winner of five Gr.1 races including the AJC Australian Derby.
It was no wonder that in 2009, when his first three-year-olds appeared on the racecourse, the number of his partners in New Zealand increased from 66 in 2008 nearly threefold to 191 (he remained in Ireland in 2007 due to equine influenza).
Among fifty-four black-type winners by High Chaparral, therefore, we can find eight horses inbred to Special and one inbred to Fairy Bridge.
Inbreeding to successful dams proves to be an interesting way to use High Chaparral.On the other hand, it needs to be said that Montjeu’s success, oddly enough, opened up the door for him to succeed elsewhere.In 2005, following the breathtaking achievements of the first three-year-olds, Montjeu stopped shuttling to the Southern Hemisphere where he was based at Windsor Park Stud, New Zealand and High Chaparral was sent instead.What they are like we will see in a few months time but even now we can say that the Australian breeders seem to approach High Chaparral similarly to European breeders than those in New Zealand. High Chaparral has, so far, produced fifty-four black-type winners.Of them thirty-five were born on the Northern, nineteen on the Southern Hemisphere.When High Chaparral was launching his stud career at Coolmore, Ireland, in 2004, his neighbour Montjeu had his first crop already debuting as two-year-olds and another Sadler’s Wells’s son, Galileo, had just his first yearlings.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
