Macho Uno January Leading Sire

Macho Uno is one of the hottest sires in North America through the first month of 2017.

The Adena Springs Kentucky stallion is the sire of a trio of blacktype winners in January along with a number of promising Maiden and Allowance winners. No North American sire has more January blackytype winners and only Bernardini ($100,000 stud fee) has as many.

Tommy Macho is his sire’s current headliner, winning the Grade 3 Hal’s Hope Stakes at Gulfstream Park on January 14 by 5 ¾ lengths. The five-year-old was emerging as one of the East Coast’s top milers last spring before being sidelined. In the third start of his current form cycle he is again on that trajectory, earning a 105 Beyer Speed Figure in the Hal’s Hope. That number is highest of his career and third-highest of any horse in North America through the early stages of 2017. Tommy Macho is now a three-time graded stakes winner of over $500,000 and he has the chance to develop into one of Macho Uno’s very best runners alongside the likes of Breeders’ Cup Classic hero Mucho Macho Man and the Grade 1-winning millionaires Private Zone and Macho Again. 

Just seven days after Tommy Macho rolled to his impressive victory, Hy Riverside prevailed by a gusty nose in the $200,000 Sunshine Millions Classic. The five-year-old colt was purchased by Mar Racing Stable for $190,000 at the 2014 OBS April Sale and he is Macho Uno’s 31st lifetime blacktype stakes winner.

Macho Uno is also the sire of the American-bred V. I. P. Zone, who captured his second career blacktype race in Panama on New Year’s Day.

Macho Uno’s pipeline continued to fill in January with the promising three-year-old Maiden Special winners Treble and Starship Tribbles.

Treble was professional two-length victress of her debut on January 16 at Oaklawn Park. Starship Tribbles got his picture taken two days later after a 6 ¼-length domination of a one-mile Maiden Special at Gulfstream Park.

Bobby Abu Dhabi and Small Bear are two other Macho Uno sophomores to watch. The former annexed an Allowance/Optional Claiming contest at Parx on January 17 for his second straight victory. His win streak has earned him a spot in the starting gate for the $250,000 Withers Stakes (G3) on February 4.

Triple Crown-nominated Bobby Abu Dhabi is working steadily for his 2017 debut. He was an impressive first-out winner at Del Mar in November before a fourth-place run in the Grade 1 Los Al Futurity.

Updated February, 2017

Nearly three-quarters of Macho Uno’s stakes horses are out of mares that carry at least one strain of Northern Dancer and the Nijinsky II strain has been particularly powerful. The second dam of G2W Macho Macho is by the Nijinsky II son Green Dancer and Nijinsky II is found in the pedigrees of 11 other stakes horses by Macho Uno, including Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner Mucho Macho Man and MGSW Overheard.

Nijinsky II & Storm Bird are bred along similar lines and GSW/Millionaire Danon Legend is out of a mare by the Storm Bird son Storm Cat.

We find Danzig in the pedigree of Hollywood Oaks (G2) winner Potesta (dam by Furiously) and G1W Wicked Style as well as a trio of current stakes horses.

Given that Macho Uno is a half-brother to Awesome Again (by Deputy Minister) it’s no surprise that he crosses well with Vice Regent/Deputy Minister-line mares. Vice Regent appears in the pedigrees of 15 stakes horses by Macho Uno, including MG1W winner Private Zone, whose second dam is by Deputy Minister. Macho Uno has also sired stakes horses out of mares by other Deputy Minister sons including Silver Deputy and Touch Gold.

Icecapade is bred on the same Nearctic/Native Dancer cross as Northern Dancer and mares by his son Wild Again have been extremely successful when bred to Macho Uno. From just six foals to race, the Macho Uno x Wild Again cross has produced six winners including G1W Macho Again and G3W Silsita.

MGSW Tommy Macho’s second dam is by Seattle Slew, an influence found in 12 other Macho Uno stakes horses. Among these is the G2W Macho Macho (dam by the Seattle Slew son General Meeting) and SW Holy Reina (dam by Capote).

Over 40% of Macho Uno’s stakes horses are out of mares that show Mr. Prospector in their pedigrees within five generations. Mucho Macho Man is out of a mare by the Two Punch stallion Ponche, making mares by another son of Two Punch, Smoke Glacken, worth consideration. Overheard is out of a daughter of the Gulch stallion, Thunder Gulch. Classic winner Harlem Rocker, G3W Kays and Jays, SW Swifty Victress and SW Uno Mas all show Mr. Prospector in their second damlines. With granddaughters of Forty Niner, Macho Uno has sired a trio of stakes winners, including Daltiva (G3-Brz) (dam by Jules) and 2017 stakes winner Hy Riverside (dam by Distorted Humor).

Five Macho Uno stakes horses show Mr. Prospector through Fappiano, including SW/Sovereign Award finalist Decision Day (dam by Unbridled's Song). Fappiano's damsire is Dr. Fager, who is a half brother to Ta Wee, dam of Macho Uno’s grandsire Great Above. Inbreeding to their dam, Aspidistra, is also found in the pedigrees of Harlem Rocker, G2W Mucho Mas Macho, G1SP Indulgence and four other Macho Uno stakes horses. In addition, we find this pattern in GSW Flashy American, a granddaughter of Holy Bull, as well as G1Ws like Unbridled and Quiet American. The Storm Cat son Forestry is another contemporary source of Dr. Fager (sire of his second dam).

Like Mr. Prospector, Sharpen Up is a paternal grandson of Native Dancer and is an ancestor of some important Macho Uno runners. G1W Wicked Style is out of a mare by Sharpen Up’s son, Trempolino. SW Firenze Feeling is out of a mare by Elmaamul, a son of Diesis (Sharpen Up) who is also the second damsire of Overheard.
