Teofilo’s first Group 1 winner has Galileo x Montjeu mixture

  1. It’s interesting, too, that Jim Bolger is a director of Equinome, and Parish Hall’s genetic distance and class capabilities would have been pre-tested, even before he made his first start. They knew what they had and must be thrilled that Parish Hall has fulfilled his promise.

  2. There is Northern Dancer (out of a daughter of Native Dancer) in each of the four quadrilles of Parish Hall’s pedigree and Raise a Native (a son of Native Dancer) in three of the quadrilles. Parish Hall’s tail-female line matches Darshaan’s in later generations. The Sadler’s Wells-Darshaan cross has been wonderfully successful. There is the very interestingly bred Djeddah in the pedigree of Sadler’s Wells and he ties in well with the bottom line of the Dewhurst winner.

  3. Good points, Major. Darshaan has the female line Tourzima/Djezima/Heldifann/Banshee/Frizette mentioned here as he descends from the Boussac blood that the Aga purchased. With the doubling up of Sadler’s Wells, plus as you mentioned the Djeddah of Sadler’s Wells (through Bold Reason) that has worked with this female line because it’s the same Boussac line (Boussac of course bred Djeddah) of Djezima/Heldifann/Banshee/Frizette AND is in Never Bend (Bold Reason’s half-brother) in pedigree of Mill Reef (whose son Shirley Heights and his son Darshaan nicked with Sadler’s Wells), the accumulation of these elements reinforces the elementary nick Sadler’s Wells/Darshaan. Thanks.

  4. Maureen, the distance of 7 furlongs for 2-year-olds is a common distance and one that you’d expect one to get with that type of pedigree.I don’t know that a genetic testing of distance would point him as a 7-furlong 2yo, as that’s just too vague. Now, if genetic testing points him as a 7-furlong 3yo instead of a 10-furlong one, that’s a distinction for sure.
