Mating Suggestions

The late MONSUN proved a remarkable sire-outcross in the northern hemisphere, leading to a €150,000 service fee.

Monsun's success is in a large part due to his wonderful affinity with NORTHERN DANCER line mares. 18 of Monsun's 22 Group 1 winning progeny feature Northern Dancer close up in their dam's pedigree. Looking wider at Monsun's total Group winning progeny we see 53 of his 67 group winners all featuring Northern Dancer.  With Vadamos carrying just one Northern Dancer line within his first six generations, mares bringing further lines look especially attractive breeding prospects.

Northern Dancer's son NIJINSKY has combined exceptionally well with Monsun, as too DANZIG. It is no surprise to see the DANEHILL cross work so well, he combining Danzig with Natalma. Another Danzig sire-son to cross well with Monsun is GREEN DESERT, and mares by sire-sons VOLKSRAAD, CAPE CROSS, and INVINCIBLE SPIRIT should suit Vadamos.

Mares by Rich Hill's own champion stallion PENTIRE are ideally suited to Vadamos. Pentire's dam-sire Mill Reef features in no less than 42 of Monsun's 65 group winners, and his sire Be My Guest features in nine stakes winners, including Timeform's 'Horse of the Year' MANDURO.

LAST TYCOON has both Northern Dancer and Mill Reef in his pedigree, making O'REILLY mares especially appealing for Vadamos. O'Reilly also features seven lines of the famous Number 9 speed family in his pedigree, this family prevalent in many of the pedigrees of Monsun's stakes horses. Mares with multiples of: Nasrullah, Fair Trial, Court Martial, My Babu, Royal Charger, Turn To etc all suit Vadamos.  SIR TRISTRAM is another likely to suit Vadamos, he bringing in Mahmoud, My Babu, and Royal Charger together with double-lines of both Princequillo and Selene. 

Through dam-sire PEINTRE CELEBRE appears influential stallion NUREYEV close-up. Linebreeding to influential mare SPECIAL is widely recognised as a key factor towards breeding stakes performers. Mares adding further NUREYEV, or brothers SADLER'S WELLS and FAIRY KING look especially appealing. The many sires affording this opportunity include: ZABEEL, SAVABEEL, DARCI BRAHMA, MONTJEU, HIGH CHAPARRAL, STRAVINSKY, ENCOSTA DE LAGO, SHINKO KING, CARNEGIE, RIP VAN WINKLE, IFFRAAJ, THEWAYYOUARE etc.

MR PROSPECTOR has had very good success combined with both Monsun and Peintre Celebre. This opens the way for mares featuring sires such as: FUSAICHI PEGASUS, WOODMAN, STRAIGHT STRIKE, FALTAAT, ELUSIVE CITY, STREET CRY, FLYING SPUR, MORE THAN READY etc.  

Peintre Celebre like Monsun, has crossed exceptionally well with DANEHILL which adds further Vadamos-appeal for Danehill-line mares. Among the many Danehill-line mares suited to Vadamos are those with: REDOUTE'S CHOICE, FASTNET ROCK, FLYING SPUR, DANZERO, DARCI BRAHMA, KEEPER, DANSKE, DANASINGA etc.
