Silent Name Leads All Stallions with 7 Queen's Plate Noms

A total of 91 three-year-olds have been nominated to the 158th running of the $1 million Queen’s...

A total of 91 three-year-olds have been nominated to the 158th running of the $1 million Queen’s Plate and Adena Springs North’s Silent Name leads all stallions with seven nominees.

That figure represents nearly 8% of all early contenders for the first jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown.

Among the Silent Name sophomores eligible for Classic glory is the stakes-placed Silent Flash, who closed out his 2016 campaign with a pair of sparkling victories over the Woodbine Tapeta course. Others include the impressive Maiden Special winners Marten River, Confidentiality and Totally Unexpected.

Silent Name was Canada’s runaway champion juvenile sire of 2016 with 15 winners and a trio of stakes winners. Among those are the fillies Cindervella and Hopping Not Hoping, two of Silent Name’s five early nominees to the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks to be run on June 11.

Giant Gizmo, Silent Name’s barnmate at Adena Springs North, is represented by a trio of Queen’s Plate nominees of his own. That group is lead by the stakes-winning colt Jurojin. 

The Queen’s Plate is scheduled for Sunday July 2 at Woodbine Racecourse in Toronto.

Silent Name is showing a growing affinity for Storm Cat-line mares. His 2016 SW Hopping Not Hoping is out of a mare by Harlan’s Holiday, by the Storm Cat son Harlan. She joins the Silent Name stakes winners Valiant Cat (dam by Storm Cat) and G2W/G1SP Fanticola (dam by Tabasco Cat).

Mr. Prospector-influenced mares have always been obvious targets for Silent Name and he’s come through with nine stakes winners and five additional stakes-placed runners out of such dams. 2016 SW Hopping Not Hoping and SW Silent Serenity show the Mr. Prospector son Conquistador Cielo in their second damlines.

Another 2016 SW, Lokinforpursemonee, is out of a mare by the Mr. Prospector stallion Porto Foricos, who is bred on the Mr. Prospector/Nureyev cross. This opens the door for mares by the Afleet stallion Northern Afleet and his son Afleet Alex. Silent Name already has a stakes-placed runner on his resume out of a mare by Rizzi, a son of Afleet.

Silent Name has sired additional stakes winners out of mares by Distorted Humor (by Forty Niner), Numerous and Not For Love. All three of these broodmare sires are too bred on the Mr. Prospector/Northern Dancer cross (like Porto Foricos).

Distorted Humor is bred Mr. Prospector over Danzig and the dam of G3W No Silent also shows these influences. He’s out of a mare by War Chant, by Danzig, with a second dam by Mr. Prospector. War Front is another bred Danzig/Mr. Prospector and his daughters and granddaughters should go well with Silent Name as should mares by Exchange Rate (Danzig/Seeking the Gold). 

No Silent and SW Crysta’s Court are among Silent Name’s three stakes horses that are inbred to Danzig and they are among the 400-plus blacktype winners that show a Danzig double so far within four generations

Daughters and granddaughters of Street Cry (by Machiavellian) are very interesting for Silent Name. Sunday Silence over Machiavellian has produced at least eight stakes winners, six group/graded and two Group 1 winners, including Dubai World Cup champion Victoire Pisa. Street Cry is also a source of Never Bend (grandsire of his second dam), an influence we find in six Silent Name stakes winners, half of them winners at the Grade/Group level.

Northern Dancer’s influence is found in about two-thirds of the stakes horses sired by Silent Name. We see Nijinsky II in the lineage of Pyrite Mountain and SW San Nicola Thunder as well as SP County Lineman. The Minstrel, a close relative of Nijinsky II, is found in the pedigree of two more stakes horses, including SW Viuva Rica. Lyphard is found in the pedigrees of a quintet of Silent Name stakes horses, including G2W/MG1SP Silentio and SW Silent Legacy

Silentio is an example of Silent Name’s affinity for the Seattle Slew broodmare line. He's is out of a mare by Seattle Slew’s best son A. P. Indy. SW Silent Serenity and SP Silent Eagle are out of mare by another Seattle Slew champion son, Capote, while the second dam of SW Mr. Online is a granddaughter of Seattle Slew.

Silent Name has sired a trio of stakes winners and two additional stakes horses out of mares carrying the Caro influence. This group includes SW/G1SP Mr. Online out of a mare by the Caro grandson Alphabet Soup (by Cozzene).
