FREUD Pedigree Analysis - by Alan Porter


11/20/13

A son of Storm Cat, and brother to European Horse of the Year, and two-time Leading Sire Giant's Causeway, Freud has emerged as an outstanding stallion in his own right. To date he is sire of 34 stakes winners, including grade one winners Giant Ryan and Franny Freud, and graded winners Hessonite, Lubash, Mr. Vegas and Future Prospect.

Giant's Causeway has been exceptional with Mr. Prospector line mares, and Freud has also had his share of success out with mares from this line. His stakes winning grade one performing daughter Quick Little Miss is out of a daughter of Unbridled (by Fappiano, a strain that has also worked under Giant's Causeway through Quiet American, Defensive Play, Cryptoclearance, Rubiano, Unbridled's Song and Ride the Rails, the sire of Candy Ride). From the Forty Niner line, Freud has 2013 multiple stakes winner Effie Trinket from a daughter of Editor's Note, and multiple stakes winner Darrin's Dilemma out of a mare by Precise End (by End Sweep,  also sire of Trippi), and this line can also be brought in through Distorted Humor (broodmare sire of a grade one winner by Giant's Causeway), Coronado's Quest, Roar, Jules, Gold Case, and Gold Fever. From a mare by Lemon Drop Kid (by Kingmambo), Freud has multiple stakes winner Lovely Syn. Out of mares from other branches of the Mr. Prospector, line Freud also has stakes winners out of mares by Good and Tough (by Carson City, also sire of City Zip, Flying Chevron, Lord Carson, Five Star Day, Cuvee and Pollard's Vision), Silver Ghost, Distinctive Pro, Double Negative and Rodeo (by Gone West, who has met with success under Giant's Causeway, and can also be introduced through Grand Slam, Elusive Quality, Mr. Greeley, Proud Citizen, and Western Expression). Giant's Causeway also has stakes winners out of mares by Seeking the Gold (sire of Mutakddim, Petionville, and Cape Town), Miswaki (sire of Black Tie Affair), Machiavellian (sire of Street Cry), Crafty Prospector, Lycius, Jade Hunter, Thunder Gulch and Torrential (by Gulch) and Hansel (by Woodman). Freud also has a stakes winner out of a mare by Marshua's Dancer, a son of Raise a Native, bred on the same cross as Mr. Prospector. 

Freud has a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Twilight Agenda, a son of the Halo stallion, Devil's Bag. Freud carries Halo through Glorious Song, a sister to both Devil's Bag,and Saint Ballado. Devil's Bag is also sire of Devil His Due, Abaginone and Diablo. Saint Ballado is sire of Captain Bodgit, Sweetsouthernsaint, Yankee Victor, Straight Man and Flame Thrower, Other sources of Halo include Sunny's Halo, Jolie's Halo, Halo's Image, and Southern Halo (sire of More Than Ready). Halo is a son of Hail to Reason, and Freud has graded stakes winner Lubush from that line out of a mare by Cure the Blues (sire of American Chance). From the Roberto branch of Hail to Reason, Giant's Causeway has a grade one winner out of a mare by You and I (by Kris S., who is also broodmare sire of a Freud stakes winner, and who is also sire of Arch, Prized, Rock Hard Ten and Kissin Kris), and a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Lear Fan. This would also encourage trying mares from the Dynaformer, Red Ransom and Silver Hawk branches of Roberto.

From the Northern Dancer line, Freud is sire of grade one winner Giant Ryan out of a mare by Dayjur, a son of Danzig (sire of Belong to Me, Exchange Rate, Boundary, Chief's Crown, War Chant and Langfuhr), and from other branches of Northern Dancer, he also has $880,000 earner Hessonite from a daughter of Manila (by Lyphard) and multiple stakes winner Merriweather Jessica from a mare by Northern Jove. Giant's Causeway has also sired a grade one winner out of a mare by Dixieland Band (sire of Dixie Union, Dixie Brass, and Hook and Ladder), and he and his sons have also enjoyed success when crossed over mares descending from Northern Dancer through Deputy Minister (and his sons Dehere, Silver Deputy and French Deputy); Nureyev (including out of mares by Theatrical, Fasliyev and Peintre Celebre); and Sadler's Wells (who could be brought in through El Prado, and his sons Medaglia d'Oro, Kitten's Joy and Artie Schiller).

Freud has a stakes winner out of a mare by Crusader Sword, a son of Damascus, and that strain can be brought in through Ogygian, Private Account (who could be introduced through Private Terms and his son, Afternoon Deelites, Personal Flag, Corporate Report, Secret Hello, Unaccounted For and Valley Crossing), Time For A Change (sire of Fly So Free) and Gilded Time. 

Freud's grade one winning daughter Franny Freud is out of a mare by D'Accord, a reverse Secretariat/Northern cross to Storm Cat. D'Accord is a brother to Medaille d'Or, the sire of Tour d'Or. From the Blushing Groom line Freud has stakes winners out of mares Cherokee Run (by Runaway Groom, and sire of Kafwain and Yonaguska) and Housebuster (by Mt. Livermore, also sire of Orientate and Peaks and Valleys). 

Freud also has stakes winners out of mares by A P Indy (whose sons include Pulpit, Malibu Moon, Mineshaft, Stephen Got Even, Golden Missile, Jump Start, Old Trieste, Apitude, Congrats and Flatter), Wild Again, Lord At War, Go For Gin (by Cormorant) and Honour and Glory (from the Relaunch line, which could work well here through Officer).

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections...Read More

Courtesy of BloodHorse.com

After impressive wins in his maiden effort and the Best Pal Stakes (gr. II), 2-year-old Creative Cause lost very little stature with a troubled second to Drill in a roughly run edition of the Del Mar Futurity (gr. I). Many observers felt that the Heinz Steinmann colorbearer would turn the tables with a better run, and they were proved right when Creative Cause drew off October 1 in the Norfolk Stakes (gr. I)...Read More

Horse of the Year in Europe and two-time leading sire in the U.S., Giant's Causeway is rightly hailed as Storm Cat's most important son.
