Mating Suggestions

Shocking's pre-potent bloodlines feature champion sires STREET CRY and DANEHILL, ensuring he suits a wide spread of Australasian mares.

Street Cry is one of the few top-drawer MACHIAVELLIANS' free of NORTHERN DANCER. With his dam Coup de Folie inbred to Almahmoud, Machiavellian did especially well with mares carrying Northern Dancer in their pedigrees. Danehill too has crossed powerfully with mares strong in Northern Dancer, so lines of this breed-shaping stallion are ideal for Shocking

Nine of Shocking's first eleven stakes performers carry a line of Northern Dancer through their dam, Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks winner FANATIC and four others each bringing a Northern Dancer double.

SIR TRISTRAM and ZABEEL are pre-eminent sources of superior staying ability. The Shocking x Sir Tristram cross offers an exciting opportunity. Sir Tristram's inbreeding to Princequillo is particularly attractive, and Danehill has done exceptionally with mares from the Sir Tristram line. Shocking's Gr.2 ARC Championship Stakes winner THE HASSLER (Circuit Hassler) is out of a Zabeel mare, he one of three stakes performers to-date sired by Shocking that feature Sir Tristram.

FANATIC is out of a GROOM DANCER (Blushing Groom) mare, as too Shocking's talented Hong Kong three-year-old LOVE SHOCK. The Shocking x Blushing Groom cross itself features in seven winners from just 10 runners, and includes exciting Group winner SHOCKING LUCK.

Duplications of DANZIG are now seen regularly in new stake winners worldwide. Three of Shocking's stakes performers carry a male line of Danzig through the top-line of their dam, each via a Green Desert sire-son: VOLKSRAAD, DESERT PRINCE, and MAGIC RING.

With DANEHILL proving a 'super cross' with Street Cry, mares bred to Shocking that carry a male line of Danehill will reinforce the potency of this nick. Duplicating Danehill has been seen to good effect in producing Group 1 winners such as GUELPH, ASTAIRE and SOUTHERN LORD together with a host of top performers.

DANEHILL crosses well with a wide variety of sire-lines making Shocking an appealing sire match for mares featuring: O'REILLY, PINS, MARSCAY, MR PROSPECTOR, NUREYEV, ROYAL ACADEMY, TWIG MOSS, MILL REEF, LUSKIN STAR, KENMARE, ROBERTO, CENTAINE, VAIN, AHONOORA, MISWAKI etc.

Bloodlines to have crossed well with STREET CRY include: SADLER'S WELLS and his sire sons, and STRAVINSKY, REDOUTES CHOICE, DIXIELAND BAND, GREEN DESERT, RED RANSOM, OCTAGONAL, NIGHT SHIFT, ROYAL ACADEMY, TALE OF THE CAT etc.
