Unbeaten and highest Timeform rated 2YO colt by Northern Meteor!!!

Stud Comments

Fighting Sun is precocious undefeated juvenile stakes winner. He is by Champion Freshman Sire Northern Meteor – the premier son of Encosta de Lago – out of a classic winning mare, and inbred to the family of Sadler’s Wells, Fairy King and Nureyev.


Fighting Sun is completely free of Danzig and Danehill, and Northern Meteor has the brilliant Zoustar out of a mare by Danehill son, Redoute’s Choice (sire of Snitzel, Stratum, Not A Single Doubt, Nadeem, Al Samer, Bradbury’s Luck and God’s Own) and grade two scorer Cosmic Endeavour out of a mare by Danehill. Redoute’s Choice is a Northern Dancer/Star Kingdom cross, which particularly appeals here, and might also be brought in through Danzero and Catbird. There are also Encosta de Lago stakes winners out of mares by Danehill sons Flying Spur (sire of Magnus, Jet Spur and Casino Prince), Rock of Gibraltar and Danasinga, while Northern Meteor already has a stakes placed two-year-old out of a mare by Danehill Dancer (sire of Choisir). Other sources of Danzig are also well worth considering here, and Northern Meteor is already sire of grade two winner Bound For Earth out of a mare by Belong to Me, and stakes winners out of mares by Snadee and Polish Precedent, while Danzig might also be introduce through Anabaa, Green Desert (sire of Desert Sun – who is already broodmare sire of Northern Meteor’s grade one performer Equator – Cape Cross, Invincible Spirit and Volksraad) and Grand Lodge.


Fighting Sun is inbred to the family of Encosta de Lago’s sire, Fairy King. Northern Meteor sired graded stakes winner The Voice out of a mare by King’s Theatre, a son of Fairy King’s brother, Sadler’s Wells, and this invites trying Fighting Sun with mares by other Sadler’s Wells line stallions such as Montjeu, Singspiel, Galileo, Scenic (sire of Blevic, a who is already broodmar sire of an Encosta de Lago stakes winner), High Chaparral, Barathea (who particularly appeals here) and King of Kings. Out of mares descending from Nureyev – a three-quarters-brother to Sadler’s Wells and Fairy King – Encosta de Lago has stakes winners out of daughters of Peintre Celebre, Fasliyev, Spinning World (sire of Thorn Park) and Ashkalani, and this strain could also be brought in through Stravinsky and Starcraft. It could also be worth trying Fighting Sun with mares by other relatives to Fairy King, such as Yeats and Perugino (a son of Danzig and sire of Testa Rossa).


Encosta de Lago has sired grade one winner Costa Viva out of a mare by Bel Esprit, a son of Royal Academy (by Nijinsky II), as well as stakes winners from daughter of other Nijinsky II line stallions Serheed, Splendent and Bletchley Park. Nijinsky II might also be introduced through Alquoz, Generous, Tenby, Tights, Whiskey Road and Kala Dancer. There is also an Encosta de Lago grade two winner out of a mare by Palace Music, a son of Nijinsky II’s three-quarters-brother The Minstrel.

Encosta de Lago has enjoyed success over mares descending from Last Tycoon (including a grade one winner out of a mare by his son Monde Bleu), and a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Last Tycoon himself. Last Tycoon might also be brought in through O’Reilly, Marju, Bigstone, Iglesia and Written Tycoon. There are also Encosta de Lago line stakes winners out of mares by Northern Dancer line stallions Alzao and Prego (by Be My Guest, who is also represented by Pentire).

Northern Meteor is broodmare sire of graded stakes winner Eurozone out of a mare by Don’t Say Halo, a son of Halo. This raises the possibility of trying Fighting Son with mares by More Than Ready, a grandson of Halo. The strain of Halo might also be introduced through Sunday Silence (sire of Fuji Kiseki, Bubble Gum Fellow and Tayasu Tsuyoshi). Halo is a Hail to Reason line stallion, and Encosta de Lago has sired stakes winners from the Roberto, branch of this line out of mares by At Talaq, Silver Hawk and Comic Strip (by Red Ransom, who could be brought in through Sri Pekan, Intikhab, Domesday and Charge Forward). It would also be good to introduce Roberto through Lear Fan (giving three crosses of the great family of Rough Shod II).


Fighting Son already has two crosses of Mr. Prospector, but there are already more than 150 stakes winners with three crosses of that horse, 20 of them grade one, so it is possible to consider breeding him back over Mr. Prospector line mares. Encosta de Lago has a grade one winner out of a mare by a son of Mr. Prospector stallion, Miswaki, and a stakes winner from a mare by that horse’s son, Umatilla. Encosta de Lago also a grade one winner out of a mare by Defensive Play and a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Unbridled’s Song (who would both give inbreeding to Fappiano, the broodmare sire of Northern Meteor). There are also Encosta de Lago line graded stakes winners out of mares descending from Mr. Prospector through Belloto, Medicean and his sire Machiavellian (also sire of Street Cry and Vettori), Thunder Gulch, Straight Strike and Fusaichi Pegasus (bred on very similar lines to Distorted Humor). It would also pay to considering mares carrying Jade Robbery who is bred on very similar lines to Geiger Counter, the sire of Fighting Son’s second dam.


Encosta de Lago has enjoyed tremendous success with mares descending from Sir Tristram, with grade one winners out of daughters of Zabeel (who brings in Nureyev, from Northern Meteor’s own family, and is sire of Octagonal, Reset and Savabeel, and grandsire of Lonhro), El Qahira and Sovereign Red, graded stakes winners from daughters of Marauding and Islero, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Westminster. This strain could also be brought in through Grosvenor, Dalmacia, Dr. Grace, Kaapstad, and Military Plume.


Northern Meteor is sire of grade one winner Romantic Touch out of a mare by Snippets, a horse who has also worked well under Redoute’s Choice, and who is available through Pins, Snowland, Snippetson and Spartacus. Encosta de Lago is sire of two grade one winners from daughters of Zeditave, who might be introduced through Strategic or Magic Albert.


Fighting Sun is an example of the very successful cross of Encosta de Lago with mares descending from Star Kingdom. Fighting Sun is out of a mare from the Biscay/Bletchingly branch, and breeding back over that line may yield dividends. Encosta de Lago has sired two grade one winners out of mares by Bletchingly line stallions Canny Lad and a grade one winner out of a mare by Bletchingly line stallion Kenny’s Best Pal, and graded winners out of mares by Lord Ballina and King Tobias. From the Marscay branch there are graded stakes winners out of mares by Blazing Sword and a grade one winner out of a mare by Paris Opera, with Maizcay being another option. Encosta de Lago also has a stakes winner out of mare from the Zephyr Bay branch of the Biscay sire line (from a daughter of Final Card).
