Additional Pedigree Notes

  • God’s Own’s damsire Sky Chase was an outstanding racehorse (8 wins $966,440 including Group 1 Champagne Stakes, Group 1 Rosehill Guineas, Group 1 Caulfield Stakes). At stud, Sky Chase is the sire of 8 individual stakes winners including multiple Group 1 winner Saintly.
  • God’s Own’s 2nd dam Ziegfield Lass is also the dam of All Grace, who in turn is the dam of Saintly (10 wins 1200-3200m $3,852,765 including Group 1 WS Cox Plate, Group 1 Melbourne Cup, Group 1 Australian Cup, Group 1 CF Orr Stakes and Horse of The Year). All Grace is also the dam of highly promising QLD sire Aucash (7 wins 1,481,636) whose yearlings have been well received in 2006.
  • God’s Own has a female line free of Northern Dancer, suiting many mares.
  • God’s Own’s female line contains outstanding Group 1 class gallopers Storm Queen, Taj Rossi, Dark Eclipse, Anna Rose, New Gleam, Western Pago, Dodge, Tenor and Tributes.
  • A winner at his only start at two, God’s Own has noted speed influences in his pedigree including Golden Slipper winners Storm Queen and Dark Eclipse as well as outstanding juveniles and Stakes performers Brilliance, Seaside Lady, Peignoir, Dark Paradise, Lemongrass and Preserve.

Byron Rogers, currently National Sales Manager for William Inglis and Son, offered the following advice about God’s Own:

God’s Own’s sire Redoute’s Choice appears to be following the same pattern as his sireline, enjoying enormous success with the Danzig/Turn-To cross. Therefore, mares from the sirelines of Sir Tristram, Roberto and Halo have very strong appeal for God’s Own. In particular one would like to see Zabeel mares visit God’s Own as his broodmare sire, Sky Chase, has a lot of elements that suit Zabeel.

Redoute’s Choice also has success with mares that breed back to his broodmare sire, Golden Slipper winner Canny Lad, and I would expect God’s Own to have similar success with mares that breed back to Canny Lad. This stallion has strong concentrations of descendants of Lady Josephine (in particular Fair Trial) so it comes as no surprise that stallions like Kenmare, Snippets and Rory’s Jester, who are all laden with stallions from this family, feature in the pedigrees of his stakes winners to date. Rory’s Jester has additional appeal as he has proved a successful “nick” with Danzig line stallions and is bred on a very similar Star Kingdom/Relic cross to Bletchingly (sire of Canny Lad).

Another stallion to consider is Zeditave as he contains Lady Josephine descendents Fair Trial, Royal Charger and two strains of Mahmoud and already appears as the broodmare sire of two of Redoute’s Choice’s stakes performers. Zeditave mares would inbreed to the fast 2yo and good sire Showdown. Better still would be mares by Zeditave’s son Strategic. He is out of a Luskin Star mare, another stallion that has fared well with Danehill. Luskin Star carries Alycidon, a full brother to Acropolis who appears in the pedigree of God’s Own.

Already proven with the Golden Slipper winner Miss Finland, the prolific Danzig/Mr Prospector cross should be looked at for a source of juvenile speed and can be sourced via mares by the likes of Bellotto, Geiger Counter, El Moxie, Woodman, Straight Strike, End Sweep and Unbridled’s Song.

Finally, the duplication of Best in Show, which can be achieved via El Gran Senor, Al Hareb, Rodrigo de Triano, Try My Best, Last Tycoon, Gielgud, Spinning World and Masterclass, has already proved successful with Redoute’s Choice and is worth considering.
