Mating Plan 2023, presented by Spendthrift: Peter Brant

After compiling Peter Brant’s breeding plans for two years in a row, it’s pretty clear that there could be no other owner/breeder spending more time on this. And why not? With one of the deepest, most impressive mares bands in the industry, mating his mares is both a huge responsibility and a work of love. He shared his system with us.

“I go for three or four main things,” says Brant. “The mares’ race record for distance, speed, turns, if they don’t have a lot of legs, if they just stay and gallop. And then I did the same with the stallions, and then I named them with the stallions I chose. Some nicks are really good, and some aren’t. You have to accept it well; for example, if it is an American or European stallion standing in Japan, there may not be any existing examples of that nickname. So I do the shots, then I do the physical tests – if the horse turns out, the rear is weak, doesn’t have a good shoulder, has a really good round. I try to complement the categories. The head and eyes are very important. And then I hope for the best! You try to get the best stallion, get the best mares for the best stallions, and for the others, more complements to them. For the best mares, we strive to get the best stallions possible. We try to breed stallions that we have raced—raging bullSottass, Demarchelier. The first year we send them six or seven mares, the second year, maybe five; and the third year, sometimes more and sometimes less, depending on what they need.”

“It took a long time,” he continued. “I used to start working in Saratoga, and I finish now. But I think it made a difference. If a mare is proven and I really like the horse he threw, I usually go back to that boss.

With all that in mind, here are Brant’s matings for his mares in America. See today’s European edition of TDN for his mating plans for his mares in the US, or click here to read it online.

BOSTON P.O. (5, Quality Sugar-Lemon Bay, by Bernardini) was bred to life is good

We just shut down the Boston Post Office this year. She’s a dirt horse that won a Pumpkin Pie Stock this fall. She has a beautiful turning point. She is a great milkmaid and I love to breed the same types, from milker to milker. life is good is a mile to a mile of eight horses, and I like to cross with Into Mischief and Quality Sugar.

CAFE AMERICANO (7, Medaglia d’Oro-Roxy Gap, by Charlie India), will be bred as Into Mischief

She is a horse with many of the abilities of Medaglia. She’s a grass horse, and I would normally choose him for a dirt horse, but then we won Queen Elizabeth with Gina Romantica (Into Mischief) and I see Into Mischief getting the ponies, too. good grass horse. And, nick and structure complement each other.

DUNBAR ROAD (7, Quality Sugar-Gift List, by Bernardini) will be bred as Into Mischief

Dunbar Road finished second in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff in 2021 and she won the Alabama Championship in 2019. She’s a dirt mare, a mile and a half long mare and I think he’s going to add to that. she.

ENCHANTED ROCK (19, Giant’s Causeway-Chic Shirine, by Mr. Prospector) will be bred as Vote early

Enchanted Rock is Verrazano’s dam and I want to breed her with a younger horse, so I’m breeding her with Vote early. She’s at Giant’s Causeway, and that suits her gunman (whom she was bred in 2022). Vote early won the Preakness, and he has a lot of speed, but can also carry it. She is 19 years old, she is the dam of several bet winners, breeding King Ranch, and I wanted a younger horse for her.

PAYING APPLICATIONS (m, 11, candy ride {Arg}-Shriek, of Street Cry {Ire}) was bred as Quality Sugar

I have a lot of paid subscribers by Quality Sugar who looks like our best two year old to date. Her name is Round Hill Road, so we’ll get back to him.

REGAL GLORY (7, Animal Kingdom-Mary’s Follies, by More Than Ready) will be bred as Into Mischief

Regal Glory (last seen winning GI Matriarch S. on December 4th) is about to go out of business and once again I’m crossbreeding from one type to another. She’s the one-mile, sixteen-mile, mile-and-a-half mile with great footwork, great speed, great speed ratings and a beautiful, solid looking mare. I was on the middle fence gunman and Into Mischief, and I went with him. I like both horses very much.

AMAZING (8, Looking Lucky-Winter Cat {Chi}), by Cat Thief), bred as gunman

She’s a multiple Group 1 winner, second place in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff and we really like her ponies.
