Breeding Analysis for Jimmy Creed by Kristen Manning

A Group One horse with Group One breeding – that is Jimmy Creed, son of a super stallion and a high class race mare with great depth of pedigree to boot.

Jimmy Creed’s sire Distorted Humor is bred on a Mr Prospector/Tom Rolfe/Northern Dancer cross whilst his dam Hookedonthefeelin is Northern Dancer/Tom Rolfe/Northern Dancer/Mr Prospector/Northern Dancer… and there is plenty to work with regarding those crosses.

Already Jimmy Creed has sired a stakes winner with a further Tom Rolfe strain and another with a cross of that champion colt’s dam… his exciting dual Group winner Kanthaka carrying a strain of Tom Rolfe’s half-brother Chieftain. Not an easy horse to find in Australia but other Pocahontas strains can be found via War Hawk II and Alzao.

Seven of Jimmy Creed’s first 11 black type performers carry further Mr Prospector and he is faring especially well when that extra strain comes through Fappiano who is not hard to find in Australian mares (Northern Meteor one example). Two of the stakes horses with this Fappiano strain come via Unbridled’s Song (who stood three seasons in NSW), another two via Quiet American whose son Real Quiet also stood three seasons here.

Mr Prospector line stallions fare very well with strains of that great stallion’s relation Seattle Slew and Jimmy Creed’s sire Distored Humor is no exception with 24 of his Group winners bred this way. Jimmy Creed should excel with Seattle Slew seeming he is line-bred to Mr Prospector whilst his fifth dam sire Nashwood is a great grandson of Mr Prospector’s fourth dam Myrtlewood.

Lomond, Seattle Dancer, Shecky Greene, Darshaan, Artie Schiller, Roan Rocket and Jugah are all members of this prolific family (one which descends from the acclaimed matriarch Frizette) as is Elusive Quality whose sire Gone West is also nice over Jimmy Creed; his grandam Tamerett also the dam of Tentam, dam sire of Jimmy Creed’s dam sire Citidancer.

Miss Belsea may have been foaled over two centuries ago but her influence is still being felt with several of her descendant Jimmy Creed’s best runners to date being out of mares carrying multiple strains – mainly via the prolific Uvira II family of which A P Indy (Distorted Humour has sired 15 stakes winners out of his daughters), Summer Squall, Bite The Bullet, Raja Baba (dam sire of Hussonet) and Statue Of Liberty (out of a Seattle Slew mare) are members.

In regards to A P Indy; his best son in Australia has been Bernardini whose daughters have produced a stakes winner and a stakes placegetter by Jimmy Creed.

Statue Of Liberty is worth a special mention as he is a son of Storm Cat who crosses extremely well with Distorted Humor; noting that Jimmy Creed’s first two Group winners both carry a strain.

One of those – the Gr.1 placed Gr.3 winner Spectator – boasts a cross of Distorted Humour’s third dam. This is not an easy family to locate in Australia but daughters of Lookin At Lucky, All Chatter and Smart Missile (who also has Fappiano) are of interest.

Jimmy Creed’s grandsire Forty Niner is a descendant of Chelandry, a mare who has had great influence in this part of the world… easily found in mares with Gold Carat, Zeditave, Anabaa, Dignitas, Zoffany, Americain, Pluck, High Chaparral and I Am Invincible.

Of most interest are the last three; Pluck being out of a mare by Fort Wood whose dam is the great mare Fall Aspen whose half-brother is Jimmy Creed’s second dam sire Allen’s Prospect. Plenty of this prolific family about; featuring in Bianconi/Nicconi, Elnadim/Pendragon, Dubawi.

High Chaparral and I Am Invincible meanwhile both carry a strain of Atan, half-brother to the dam of Tentam, providing for a chance to line-breed to the terrific mare Mixed Marriage. As already mentioned Tentam’s dam Tamerett can be found in Gone West… and also in Known Fact.

Also from this family (whose matriarch is the influential Aloe) is Round Table, so easily found in this part of the world as dam sire of the mighty Sir Tristram.

Distorted Humour has fared well with Deputy Minister and Dehere; no surprise with the Gr.1 mare Bellesoeur (dam of Deputy Minister’s second dam sire Jabneh and grandam of Distorted Humour’s second dam sire Mr Leader) duplicated. Bellesoeur is also dam of Beau Gar, fourth dam sire of Exceed And Excel whose dam sire Lomond hails from the same family as Mr Prospector.
