Do-It-Again

 

The dominance of the Northern Dancer line in the July, like so many races around the world, has been remarkable.

Of the past ten runnings, all but one have gone to horses descended directly in male line from the 1964 Kentucky Derby winner.

While descended in male line from Mr Prospector, Do It Again is by no means free of the Dancer either, having no fewer than three lines of Northern Dancer in his five generation pedigree.

His four time Gr1 winning sire Twice Over has made an exceptional start to his stud career, and he gives every indication of furthering  the success that many Mr Prospector line stallions have enjoyed at stud in South Africa.

While not enjoying dominance in the July, Mr Prospector and his descendants have more than made their mark in South Africa, with their numbers including champion sires Trippi and Western Winter, leading First and Second Crop Sire What A Winter, potentially outstanding but short lived stallion Secret Prospector, and deceased top KZN sire Kahal.
