Mating Suggestions

Pentire's outstanding sire success over a long period reinforces his great ability to cross effectively with many bloodlines.

 

Legendary sire  NORTHERN DANCER'S bloodlines feature in  62 of Pentire's 84 stakes performers.

Mares with  STAR KINGDOM in their pedigree have shown a remarkable affinity also, with  18 of Pentire's stakes winners carrying the great Australian sire's bloodlines.  BISCAY is present in Pentire's Group 1 winners RANGIRANGDOO, PANTANI, FERLAX, and PENNY GEM.

MR PROSPECTOR mares are attractive breeding options for  Pentire. 2015 Melbourne Cup winner PRINCE OF PENZANCE was out of a Mr Prospector mare, and  15 of Pentire's stakes performers feature him in their pedigrees including: ZARITA, PENTASTIC, and INTRANSIGENT.

CENTAINE crosses well, with XTRAVAGANT, HE'S REMARKABLE, and ATACAMA all Group 1 Pentires' to feature him. Centaine's pedigree contains that wonderful Australian sire  VAIN, and 17 of Pentire's stakes horses feature Vain's bloodlines. 

14  of Pentire's stakes winners  carry SIR TRISTRAM'S bloodlines, including champion racehorse XCELLENT and SIR PENTIRE. Champion broodmare sire  ZABEEL is dam-sire of  four Pentire Group 1 performers including: XTRAVAGANT, ART SUCCESS, HE'S REMARKABLE, and LARRY'S NEVER LATE. Zabeel is second dam-sire of Darren Weir's 2017 Gr.1 South Australia Derby winner VOLATILE MIX.

Crossed with a  GROSVENOR mare, Pentire has sired top stayers PENTATHON and PENTATHLON; and to  KAAPSTAD mares ENTIRELY PLATINUM and KINCAPLE.

Line-breeding to  MILL REEF and his relatives has been very successful for Pentire. The Group 1 winner MARKUS MAXIMUS is out of a  LAST TYCOON mare, while the Japanese Group winners CRAFT WORK and ONE MORE CHATTER both feature  Mill Reef on their dam's side, as too VOLATILE MIX.  O'REILLY mares offer breeders this opportunity, 2017 Gr.1 Auckland Cup winner CHENILLE bred on this cross. On the reverse, stakes winner PRESIDENT LINCOLN is an example of  O'Reilly bred over a  Pentire mare.

HIGH CHAPARRAL deserves special mention. VOLATILE MIX was sired by Pentire out of one of his mares, and bred on the reverse cross is five-time Group 1 winner SHOOT OUT. This Group 1 double is all the more impressive as these are the only two runners on the Pentire x High Chaparral cross.  

The influence of TUDOR MINSTREL cannot be over looked for Pentire, (KING) MUFHASA, RANGIRANGDOO and DEVASTATING each line-bred to him. 

Among the dam-sires Pentire has sired stakes winners to are:  CATBIRDCENTROCRESTED WAVEDANASINGADANCE FLOORDANZERODEFENSIVE PLAY, GOLD BROSEHIGH CHAPARRALROYAL ACADEMYSINGSPIEL, and  VELOSO.
