Songs and Laughter matched his solid turf pedigree while scoring comfortably in the $125,000 Bold Ruckus Stakes at Woodbine on Saturday.

Watch the Bold Ruckus Stakes

The unbeaten favorite, Aaronic Blessing, dueled with Beliveau through the turn in the six-furlong dash as Songs and Laughter saved ground in a stalking position.

A son of the unbeaten El Prado stallion Singing Saint, Songs and Laughter angled wide for the drive and then collared the leaders inside the eighth pole before drawing clear for a two-length tally in 1:09.62 over the firm ground.

Songs and Laughter earned $75,000 in his first stakes triumph for owner/breeder Rolph Davis, upping his career bankroll to $142,617. The gelding was coming off a runner-up performance in the May 21 Queenston Stakes and has yet to finish off the board in his seven lifetime starts.

“I talked with Bob, and there was a lot of speed in the race,” jockey Eurico Rosa Da Silva said. “He broke really sharp, and I just took him back. He’s a very easy horse to [rate]. He was running very relaxed. When I turned for home with lots of horse, he just went by them.”

Update October 15, 2016 

Singing Saint is an undefeated son of champion sire El Prado out of a mare by the champion Alydar racer Easy Goer. El Prado has emerged as an important sire of sires with the six-figure stallions Medaglia d’Oro and Champion Sire Kitten’s Joy among his Grade 1-siring sons so far.

El Prado worked well with Mr. Prospector-line mares and his sons, including Singing Saint, appear to be following suit. The Forty Niner, Gone West and Gulch/Thunder Gulch branches are especially attractive. 

Singing Saint’s 2016 SW Songs and Laughters is out of a mare by the Forty Niner son Distorted Humor. That makes it at least 11 stakes winners by five different El Prado sons with Forty Niner-line dams. Eight of these are group/graded winners including the all-time greats Rachel Alexandra (dam by Roar) and Songbird (West Acre) by Medaglia d’Oro.

Kitten’s Joy and Medaglia d’Oro have combined to sire at least 11 stakes winners out of Gone West mares and this group also shows a high degree of quality - seven group/graded winners and three G1 winners. Four of these stakes winners are out of mares by Grand Slam, another two out of Proud Citizen daughters. 

Medaglia d’Oro has sired a trio of stakes winners, including G1Ws Mshawish and Passion for Gold, out of a mares by Thunder Gulch (by Gulch). Thunder Gulch has also blended well with Singing Saint’s maternal great-grandsire Alydar (at least eight stakes winners, including G1W’s Circular Quay and Point Given).

The second dam of SP Hot Cross Buns is by the Mr. Prospector son Conquistador Cielo, whose influence we also find in the pedigree of Songs and Laughter.

Another of Singing Saint's early stakes horses is out of a mare by the Seattle Slew son Doneraile Court. The El Prado/Seattle Slew cross has produced well over 20 stakes winners and three of those are Grade 1 winners, all out of daughters or granddaughters of A. P. Indy. El Prado, Kitten’s Joy and Medaglia d’Oro have all sired stakes winners out of mares by the champion Slew son Capote.

Based on his sire’s success, Roberto-influenced mares hold high promise for Singing Saint. Indeed, Songs and Laughter’s second dam is by the Roberto stallion Dynaformer. Overall, there are at least 16 stakes winners bred El Prado over Roberto, nine group/graded and five G1 winners. 

Mares from the Damascus line should be strongly considered for Singing Saint. This is the cross that gave us Medaglia d’Oro and both he and Kitten’s Joy have sired graded stakes winners with Damascus-line mares. One of Singing Saint’s early stakes horses is out of a mare by Skip Trial, a Damascus grandson. 

El Prado also had good success with mares from the Blushing Groom broodmare line, with seven stakes winners, four graded, including G1W Spanish Moon. The El Prado/Blushing Groom tally is up to 16 stakes winners, seven at the group/graded level.

Singing Saint’s SW Hot Cross Buns is out of a mare by Richter Scale, a great-grandson of Sir Gaylord, with a second dam a granddaughter of Clever Trick.
