PEDIGREE  NOTES
G1 Stallion Match Transparent.jpg
 

SHALAA has the particularity to be inbred 3x3 on Danzig via his sire, Invincible Spirit, a son of Green Desert, and his damsire War Chant. The matriarch Doubly Sure, dam of Kris and Diesis, also appears twice within the fourth generation of SHALAA’s pedigree.

Looking at Invincible Spirit ‘s 15 Gr.1 winners to date, 8 of them have Mr Prospector within the first four generations of their maternal line. The most successful mating remains with daughters or granddaughters of Machiavellian, but is also proven with descendants of Kingmambo, Gone West, Gulch and Seeking The Gold.

80% of Invincible Spirit’s Gr.1 winners to date include other sons of Northern Dancer in the first five generations of their maternal lines : mainly Nijinsky and Sadler’s Wells, together responsible for 7 of his 15 Gr.1 winners, but also The Minstrel, Nureyev and Lyphard.


It is also worth noting that from Invincible Spirit’s 15 Gr.1 winners, 4 are closely related to Blushing Groom on their dam side, 4 to Sir Gaylord (including Shalaa who is himself linebred 5x5 on Sir Gaylord), and 3 to Mill Reef.
