ASTUTE broodbitch owners are always on the lookout for new trends in bloodlines to help them produce winning litters.

Highly successful race dogs are a guide for us all.

Just how they are bred can give us an insight into what can and will work with our own bloodlines.

A pedigree watch of those successful bloodlines is almost a guarantee to success.

Here are a few examples.


(Collision-Nino de Oro)

An outstanding race bitch she recently won the Group 2 Maitland Gold Cup and has since become a finalist in the Group 1 Golden Easter Egg.

Her mother Nino de Oro is a daughter of Fernando Bale-Solar Pak and she is a litter sister to some classy types in Little Digger (29 wins, $166,000). All 10 in this litter were winners and their stakes total was $473,000.

Nino de Oro herself won 15 races and $59,000.

When Solar Pak was mated to Collision the litter hit the headlines.

Good Odds Harada (36 wins, $1.3 million), Feral Franky (24 wins, $482,000) and Inversion (18 wins, $136,000) made it a special mating.

It was only natural that Nino de Oro would be mated to Collision is a bid to recreate Good Odds Harada, Feral Franky etc.

So, where is all this leading to?

It’s leading to the obvious conclusion that bitches by Fernando Bale are a virtual MUST for matings to Feral Franky and Good Odds Harada in a bid to recreate the pedigree of Good Odds Cash.

Remember too that Fernando Bale has combined with Collision to produce Group 1 stars like Dyna Patty, Whiskey Riot, Fernando’s Riot, Trouper Monelli etc.


(Zambora Brockie-Miami Fernando)

A boom youngster who ran 29.07 in one win at Sandown and 29.10 in another. He also went 29.60 at The Meadows and he is just a baby.

He has a VERY interesting pedigree.

His dam Miami Fernando is bred on the same Fernando Bale-Kinloch Brae cross as Sennachie.

Amron Boy’s pedigree shows three crosses of US influence via Flying Stanley, Kelsos Fusileer and Kinloch Brae all coming in 3x3x3.

But he also introduces a 5×4 of the similarly bred Rikasso Lassie and Premier Fantasy. They bring in the litter sisters Murlens Chill and Westpark Model. I have always thought bitches with Premier Fantasy in their pedigree would suit matings to Zambora Brockie because of this reason.

So, where does this lead us to?

The fact Amron Boy’s mother Miami Fernando is bred on the same cross as Sennachie means daughters of Zambora Brockie can be mated to Sennachie in a bid to recreate Amron Boy.


(Aston Dee Bee-Hoity Toity)

The winner of the Tassie Breeders Classic, Just Posh has an incredibly in-bred pedigree.

Anyone at all interested in such things should take a look.

Just Posh’s sire Aston Dee Bee has Elite Oriental as his second mother.

Just Posh’s mother Hoity Toity (19 wins, $41,000) has Elite Oriental’s litter brother Knocka Norris as her grandsire. Elite Oriental and Knocka Norris come into the pedigree of Just Posh 3×3.

But, the pedigree also has the litter brothers Hallucinate and Where’s Pedro 4×3, and the litter brothers Black Shiraz and Big Ginger Boy 4×4.

A fascinating direct damline here.

Just Posh traces to Belinda Bale, a Wentworth Park winner and fifth dam of Just Posh, a litter sister to Tweed Galaxy winner and Toowoomba track record breaker Brutess.

Also in the litter was Hot Lace, who is found in the pedigree of the Wheeler great Dyna Lachlan, and current day staying star Gypsy Wyong.


(Aston Dee Bee-Shez Impetuous)

An absolute “rocket” who showed through the Golden Easter Egg series what a superstar she is.

I read with interest on a greyhound data forum that her mother Shez Impetuous (Jagger Swagger-Oh So Sweet) was bred on the “much maligned” duplication of the Rumble Spirit cross. That’s news to me!

Shez Impetuous (7 wins, $15,000) is in-bred 3×3 to Collision, a son of Rumble Spirit. How can line breeding to a champion stud dog like Collision be “much maligned”? Collision just happens to be the sire of the winners of $63 million.

Aston Dee Bee’s mother Aston Elle carries the same Malawi’s Prince/Just The Best cross found in Jagger Swagger’s mother Surpassing.

She’s A Pearl also brings in a cross up close of Bombastic Shiraz and Frosty Fruits.

She’s A Pearl’s second mother, Oh So Sweet, a city winner at Wenty and Sandown, is from the famed “Gay’s Fancy” damline and was a half sister to Fancy Will and Fancy Dean and a litter sister to FIVE Group performers.

Oh So Sweet’s litter sister, Pretty Fancy, became the mother of superstar Striker Light.
