Foreclosure’s pedigree combines the contemporary influences of the No Nukes/Western Hanover sireline with those of the Cam Fella sireline via the latter’s very influential son Fake Left.
As a Western Hanover sireline stallion, Foreclosure is well-equipped genetically to cross successfully with mares’ carrying the three other popular contemporary sirelines in Abercrombie ( in particular via his son Artsplace ), Cam Fella and Direct Scooter but not to the total exclusion of more traditional or even outcrossed bloodlines which can surprise with a superior individual on the racetrack.
The Western Hanover sireline as carried paternally by Foreclosure typically delivers well-recognised traits and attributes such as natural athleticism, early maturity and generally good inherent gait.
Other sirelines such as those mentioned above can either enhance or complement these traits and attributes making for a more rounded individual in your breeding endeavours.
The Abercrombie sireline introduces stamina, gait and soundness characteristics and through his son Artsplace unrelenting stamina.
With Foreclosure carrying two prominent female only lines of Abercrombie, both through his sire Rocknroll Hanover, it is logical to put Abercrombie line mares to Foreclosure as they offer the key male sex-balancing line of Abercrombie that Foreclosure is seeking for best results.
Abercrombie line mares’ include the likes of Albert Albert, Day In A Life, Flight Laag, I Am A Fool, Island Fantasy, Jet Laag, Life Sign, Pacific Rocket, Panorama, Peruvian Hanover, Real Desire and Tell All et al whilst mares’ coming through Artsplace include the likes of Artesian, Artiscape, Art Major, Art Official, Astreos, Dali, Dream Away, Flightpath, Follow The Stars, For A Reason, Fully Loaded, Grinfromeartoear, Major Bronski, Major In Art, Mister Big, Modern Art, Mr Feelgood, Partywiththebigdog, Peace Of Art, Perfect Art, Santana Blue Chip, Smiling Shard, Sportswriter, Stonebridge Regal and Sweet Lou et al.
If we look at Foreclosure’s own sire Rocknroll Hanover we note that the latter has produced his most successful runner from an Artsplace mare in Rock N Roll Heaven whilst another highly successful son and now sire Pet Rock is also bred on this cross.
The Cam Fella sireline introduces depths of stamina and toughness, Cam Fella being recognised as the greatest stamina horse ever produced in North America.
Foreclosure himself is bred on this cross being out of a mare by Cam Fella’s illustrious son Fake Left, whilst emerging sire A Rocknroll Dance also carries the Rocknroll Hanover/Cam Fella cross.
Cam Fella line mares’ are prolific and include the likes of Armbro Operative, Artistic Fella, Betterthancheddar, Bettor’s Delight, Blissfull Hall, Brioso Hanover, Cameleon, Cammibest, Camtastic, Caribbean Blaster, E Dee’s Cam, Exotic Earl, Fake Left, Four Starzzz Shark, Gold Ace, Highview Tommy, Lislea, Lis Mara, Million Dollar Cam, Pacific Fella, Precious Bunny, Presidential Ball, Riverboat King, Roll With Joe, Safari, Shadyshark Hanover, Shark Gesture, Village Jolt and Washington VC et al.
With a male only line of Cam Fella ( via Fake Left ), Foreclosure is well set up genetically to produce good results over any mares’ carrying sex-balancing female lines of Cam Fella. These can often be found in the maternal pedigrees of broodmare sires with the likes of Somebeachsomewhere immediately springing to mind here.
The Direct Scooter sireline not only offers welcome outcrossed bloodlines ( for hybrid vigour ) being devoid of the prolific influences of Meadow Skipper, but it brings with it the highly desirable enhanced gait characteristics offering the benefits of greater fluency of pacing action. This in turn has resulted in conservation of energy and an ability to display higher levels of speed and to sustain such speed over greater distance. The pioneering deeds of In The Pocket and Matt’s Scooter have been carried on through their respective sons the likes of Christian Cullen and Mach Three and all have played a significant part in revolutionising race times and advancing speed in the breed over the last two decades in the Southern Hemisphere.
Direct Scooter line stallions include Advance Attack, Alta Christiano, Auckland Reactor, Changeover, Christian Cullen, Courage Under Fire, Extreme Three, Fly Like An Eagle, Goodtime Sammy, Gotta Go Cullect, Gotta Go Cullen, In The Pocket, Julius Caesar, Lanercost, Mach Three, Mattuity, Net Ten Eom, Ohoka Arizona, Pay Me Christian, Raging Bull, Rob Roy Mattgregor, Royal Mattjesty, Sir Lincoln, Somebeachsomewhere, Stunin Cullen, Sunshine Beach and Tinted Cloud et al.
Foreclosure carries just a single female sex-balancing line of Direct Scooter ( via his leading daughter Rich N Elegant ) so should mesh very successfully with mares’ carrying the presence of the stallions’ as above.
It is also worth noting that older more traditional bloodlines or colonially influenced bloodlines could work well in association with the pedigree of Foreclosure.
We know from past results that Albatross line mares have crossed well with Western Hanover line stallions. This is not surprising as Albatross ( speed and gait ) has always complemented Most Happy Fella’s ( found in Foreclosure’s sireline ) stamina and toughness offerings as breed changing sire Meadow Skipper’s two most influential sons.
Albatross line stallions include Butler BG, Holmes Hanover, Soky’s Atom, Talk About Class, Tompkins Hanover and Vance Hanover et al.
The highly outcrossed Falcon Seelster line mares have crossed with a wide variety of sirelines such is their versatility and have also displayed an affinity with Western Ideal producing the likes of Dawn Ofa New Day ( Western Ideal / Falcon Seelster ) and Ideal Scott ( American Ideal / Falcon Seelster ).
It is also worth noting that the earlier maturity of the Western Hanover/ Western Ideal sireline should greatly benefit the generally slower maturing Falcon Seelster line.
Falcon Seelster line stallions include the likes of Attorney General, Elsu, McArdle, Million To One, Rich And Spoilt, Sealed N Delivered, The Falcon Strike Tintin In America, and Trump Casino et al.
Originally scorned upon as lacking in big success, the doubling up of No Nukes paternally has grown in acceptance and has become more prevalent particularly as he becomes further removed in a pedigree. Western Ideal and American Ideal have both left very good horses out of No Nukes line mares whilst Western Hanover’s son Western Terror when crossed over a Live Or Die mare produced the very talented and versatile Terror To Love who was 3x4 paternally linebred to No Nukes.
Aligning to this, mares by sons of Western Hanover are also crossing well when returned to stallions from the same sireline. There is now clear evidence that paternal linebreeding to Western Hanover should not be instantly dismissed with Foreclosure offering 4x3 paternal linebreeding to Western Hanover for any mare by a son of Western Hanover.
No Nukes or Western Hanover line stallions include Allamerican Ingot, Badlands Hanover, Barnett Hanover, Caprock, If I Can Dream, Jereme’s Jet, Kinney Hanover, Live Or Die, Northern Lights, Panspacificflight, P Forty Seven, Ponder, Red River Hanover, Righteous Hanover, Rustler Hanover, Safely Kept, Shadow Play, Ticket To Heaven, Union Guy, Village Jasper, Well Said, Western Terror and We Will See et al.
Similarly, daughters of the sons of Western Ideal will feature 3x3 paternal linebreeding to Western Ideal when bred to Foreclosure.
Western Ideal line stallions include the likes of Always A Virgin, American Ideal, Artspeak, Big Jim, Dawn Ofa New Day, Heston Blue Chip, He’s Watching and Vintage Master et al.
With his male only line of Western Hanover, Foreclosure should also be very receptive to mares’ carrying a female line of Western Hanover for sex-balancing purposes. Mares by Shark Gesture come to the fore here as will in the future mares by Betting Line et al.
As we can see from the above, male linebreeding presences abound for Foreclosure but the presence of Golden Miss ( the 4th dam of his sire Rocknroll Hanover ) also presents a wonderful female linebreeding opportunity not only through her daughters and grand-daughters ( who include Malaysia, Shifting Sands, Shifting Scene, Proven Perfect and Whispering Sands ) but also to her high class son Strike Out.
Golden Miss was accorded the status of “The Queen Of Gait” such was her impeccable pacing action and there is little doubt that Strike Out inherited much of this with his blistering speed and scintillating gate speed.
This is blood well worth compounding in your pedigree matching endeavours.
With the premature demise of Foreclosure’s sire Rocknroll Hanover, all eyes are now on the sons of Rocknroll Hanover that have gone to Stud thus far and what they are going to cross best with.
Sons of Rocknroll Hanover who feature in this category include A Rocknroll Dance, B G’s Folly, Pet Rock and Rock N Roll Heaven with the last-mentioned of these stallions easily being the most established and currently the most “Commercial” so we will have a look at what sires and sirelines have produced his best progeny in each of North America, Australia and New Zealand.
This should serve as a useful indicator for that which could work for Foreclosure and may also serve as actual examples of what has been aforementioned in this guideline that could work successfully for Foreclosure.
