Hip #2359, an Adena Springs-bred Macho Uno colt caught the eye of some sharp bidders during Session 7 of the Keeneland September Yearling sale. When the dust settled the attractive grey sold for $175,000.

The colt has every right to be a good one. He's out of the mare Black Lace, by dual Classic winner Afleet Alex, and a half-sister to Macho Uno's five-time Grade 1 winner Private Zone. A little further back in the pedigree are the likes of two-time Canadian Horse of the Year Chief Bearhart. Golf '18 signed the ticket on the colt.

Adena Springs-bred, raised and sold Private Zone at the 2010 Keeneland September sale. 

In addition to Private Zone, Macho Uno is the sire of several other top-class runners including Grade 1 winners Wicked Style, & Macho Again and Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) hero Mucho Macho Man, whose first yearlings have been received at Keeneland September

Updated August 18, 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 16 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/MG1SP 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 and 2017 G2SP 2YO Dia de Pago is out of Two Punch daughter. This makes 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.
