Mating Suggestions

Ace High showed early brilliance at two when second on debut to Champagne Cuddles (1100m), then beating Unforgotten (1400m) and  running a good fourth in the Gr.1 ATC Champagne stakes (1600m). He was a dual Group 1 winner at three, competitive between 1600m - 2500m.

His sire High Chaparral recorded six Group 1 wins at distances: 1600m, 2000m, plus four at 2400m (including the English and Irish Derby's). He sired champion milers, along with champion middle distance and staying stars, and his young Derby-winning sire-son Dundeel showed versatility siring two Group 1 winning juveniles this season.

Champion sires High Chaparral, Redoute's Choice and Sunday Silence give expectation that Ace High will also show versatility, and ensure most New Zealand broodmares will find some compatibility as most of the major pattern nicks available are represented and can be easily duplicated.

Mares with SIR TRISTRAM influences appeal, 30+ stakes winners combine High Chaparral and Sir Tristram within five generations, nine at Group 1. High Chaparral's sire-son So You Think shows an early affiliation too, combining with two Group 1 winning progeny and 11 stakes performers. Damsire Redoute's Choice has proved his own affinity, 16 Group 1 winners combining the sire pair.

ZABEEL carries Sir Tristram and NUREYEV, Group 1 winners Dundeel, Princess Jenni, Fenway and Hiyaam were all sired by High Chaparral out of Zabeel mares. The Zabeel cross produces the well sought duplication of blue-hen mare SPECIAL, other sires also affording this opportunity: SAVABEEL, DARCI BRAHMA, MONTJEU, STRAVINSKY, ENCOSTA DE LAGO, RELIABLE MAN, CARNEGIE, RIP VAN WINKLE, IFFRAAJ etc.

Redoute's Choice brings DANEHILL to the mix, Ace High especially appealing for most mares absent in his blood. He affords an opportunity to linebreed to DANZIG, there been over 70 Group 1 winners with Danehill in the sire and a second cross of Danzig in their dam. GREEN DESERT lines mares are well suited i.e. CAPE CROSS, VOLKSRAAD, SHOWCASING, POWER, INVINCIBLE SPIRIT etc.

O'REILLY and TOWKAY mares suit Ace High, seven Group 1 winners bred on the Redoute's Choice x Last Tycoon cross. Mares by Rich Hill's former champion stallion PENTIRE match well, the High Chaparral cross producing Group 1 winners Shoot Out and Volatile Mix. MASTERCRAFTSMAN mares add interest, crossing his sire Danehill Dancer with Sadler's Wells a proven breeding strategy.

MR PROSPECTOR'S genes are highly suited to the lines of Northern Dancer in Ace High's pedigree, and to High Chaparral, Danehill, and Redoute's Choice who combines with Mr Prospector in 30+ Group 1 winners. Some of the mares carrying Mr Prospector that suit are by stallions: SHOCKING, ZACINTO, SWISS ACE, POSTPONED, PER INCANTO, MASTERCRAFTSMAN, RELIABLE MAN and IFFRAAJ etc.

Ace High's strong female line combined with a close infusion of his three breed shaping sires means he's an ideal addition to the New Zealand stallion ranks. We welcome your enquiry!
