The mighty Danzig (by Northern Dancer) sire yielded two powerful branches, namely those forged by the classic-placed Group 1 sprint stars Danehill and Green Desert. (War Command may forge a third one.) Now we are seeing strong early signs that Green Desert’s lineage is producing three branches of its own – those headed by Oasis Dream, Cape Cross, and Invincible Spirit.
The latter’s early stallion sons feature the Group 1 sires Lawman and I Am Invincible, and it is the second of those who has given us international sprint ace and young Dalham Hall Stud reverse-shuttle stallion Brazen Beau.
A six-furlong Group 2 scorer in a juvenile season that culminated in a head second in a mile Group 1 contest, he went on to take the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes over the former trip, chased home Lankan Rupee in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes, easily beat Chautauqua in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap, and then chased home Undrafted in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
This Timeform 126-rated sprinter is the best of a handful of stakes winners in the first four generations of his pedigree, but his fifth dam is the classic-placed Canadian star Windy Answer (by Windfields), the mare who gave us Ciboulette (by Chop Chop).
In addition to being the dam of leading sire Night Shift (by Northern Dancer), the stakes-winning Ciboulette was responsible for Barachois (by Northern Dancer), Somfas (by What A Pleasure) and champion Fanfreluche (by Northern Dancer).
So, although they are remotely connected to him, Brazen Beau comes from a branch of the family of notable sires L’Enjoleur (by Buckpasser), Flying Spur (by Danehill), Encosta De Lago (by Fairy King), and Holy Roman Emperor (by Danehill), as well as many others who have sired blacktype scorers.
Interestingly, the latter include Group 2 Temple Stakes winner Snaadee (by Danzig), the broodmare sire of Brazen Beau, which makes the young stallion inbred 5x5 to the afore mentioned Windy Answer. He is also inbred 4x3 to Danzig, 4x3 to Bletchingly, and 5x4 to Nearctic.
Brazen Beau should be capable of getting some smart two-year-olds in Europe, in addition to some high-class sprinters and milers aged three and upwards, and it will be interesting to see how the northern hemisphere side of his career turns out.
