A growing number of the Oasis Dream (by Green Desert) stallions are siring stakes winners, which represents a promising start, and in 2016 they included Showcasing, sire of the dual Group 1-winning sprint star Quiet Reflection, and blacktype sires Approve, Aqlaam, Arcano, Captain Gerrard, and Power.
His younger sons include Gale Force Ten, who Timeform rated 115 at two and 118 at three. Coach House and Morpheus also have their first yearlings now.
Gale Force Ten, an Irish National Stud stallion, covered 160 mares in his first season, so he will not be short of representatives. His first foals made up to €52,000.
He was a £280,000 yearling, he won a six-furlong maiden in very soft ground at the Curragh in June of his two-year-old season, was runner-up to Reckless Abandon in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot shortly afterwards, and finished third behind that same rival in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.
At three, he won the seven-furlong Listed Patton Stakes at Dundalk and the Group 3 Jersey Stakes on fast ground at Ascot, and he chased home Magician in the Group 1 Irish 2000 Guineas. The best of his subsequent form were a sixth-place finish behind Lethal Force in the Group 1 July Cup and fourth behind Maxios in the Group 1 Prix du Moulin de Longchamp.
Gale Force Ten is the first foal out of the Listed Warwickshire Oaks winner Ronaldsay (by Kirkwall) and that mare's siblings include Crackle (by Anshan), dam of the dual US Grade 3 scorer Pickle (by Piccolo). That filly, in turn, is the dam of the prolific listed sprint scorer Gusto (by Oasis Dream).
His grandam, Crackling (by Electric) won at three and four years of age but her two best siblings we best as juveniles. Bianca Nera (by Salse), Ireland's two-year-old filly champion of 1996, won the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes and she is the grandam of the multiple Group 1 star Postponed (by Dubawi), of Grade 1-placed Grade 3 scorer Turning Top (by Pivotal), of Group 3 Winter Derby winner Robin Hoods Bay (by Motivator), and of this year's Listed Aphrodite Stakes heroine God Given (by Nathaniel).
The other of Crackling's notable siblings is Hotelgenie Dot Com (by Selkirk), who is a little more closely related to Ronaldsay than is Bianca Nera. She was runner-up in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes and third in the Group 1 Fillies' Mile, her classic-placed daughter Simply Perfect (by Danehill) took both the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes and Group 1 Fillies' Mile, and her grandson Bondi Beach (by Galileo) is a Group 1 St Leger-placed dual 14-furlong pattern scorer.
Birch Creek (by Carwhite) is the third dam of Gale Force Ten, she earned her blacktype when finishing third in the Group 3 Premio Royal Mares, and her blacktype siblings include Great Deeds (by Forzando), a Group 3 Ballyogan Stakes winner who was runner-up in the Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes.
Gale Force Ten's pedigree represents a mixture of speed and stamina, he was a classic-placed seven-furlong Group 3 scorer, he represents the Green Desert sire line, and he has been popular with breeders.
The distance preferences of his offspring may depend on what their dams contribute, and although he can be expected to get some useful two-year-olds, his best results may come with his three-year-olds and older horses.
