Champion as a 2 years old, the wonderful and athletic DABIRSIM is one of very few European sires coming out of Chef de Race Sunday Silence sireline, a singularity but also an highly prominent genetical asset. Wearing the black colour of his glorious grandsire and coming out of the female family of Prix Morny G1 winner Madina, a race he won a few years later, DABIRSIM is already the sire of 23 black type performers…
And among them two Group winning fillies who are both out of granddaughters of Chef de Race DANEHILL : Cœur de Beauté, won won the Prix Imprudence G3 before being second in Poule d’Essai des Pouliches – French Guineas G1, is out of a daughter of Champion ROCK OF GIBRALTAR while Different League, who won the Albany St. G3 in June of her juvenile season before placing third in Prix Morny G1 and second in Cheveley Park St. G1, is herself out of a daughter of DANEHILL DANCER. An efficient variant of the nick Sunday Silence x Danehill, responsible for several G1 including classic miler Saxon Warrior.
Let’s also underline the pedigree of black type performer Not Mine whose damsire if the Top 2 years old Holy Roman Emperor, and the one of sprinter Le Cadeau whose dam is by Exceed and Excel, another fast and precocious son of Danehill. However, the dam of above mentioned Le Cadeau has got a very interesting pedigree : his two grandfathers are Danehill and BERING (a son of Arctic Tern) and his second damsire is MACHIAVELLIAN. Interestingly, Danehill, Arctic Tern and Machiavellian are all coming out of the same female family, the one of Northern Dancer, direct ancestor of the dam of DABIRSIM, and of Halo, direct ancestor of DABIRSIM in male line !!!
It’s therefore not really surprising that DARK ANGEL can be found as a damsire in the pedigree of Listed placed at 2 in GB Detail, Dark Angel being out of a daughter to Machiavellian. Same comment about SHAMARDAL, damsire of the above mentioned Hala Hala Athmani, Shamardal being as well out of a daughter to Top 2 years old Colt Machiavellian, but being as well a son of Giant’s Causeway whose sire STORM CAT is a cousin and a genetic equivalent to Royal Academy, damsire of … DABIRSIM !
Knowing that bloodlines carrying dominant speed and precocity are working very well with DABIRSIM, we shall warmly invite the daughters of NO NAY NEVER to visit him : No Nay Never is in fact a direct descendant of Storm Cat through SCAT DADDY, and he sired the Coventry St. G2 and Dewhurst St. G1 second Arizona as well as Mrs Revere St. G2 Nay Lady Nay with a half sister to the dam of DABIRSIM. Interesting references which shall qualifye all mares by Johannesburg or his son Sageburg as well as young broodmares by Seabhac, Seahenge, Caravaggio and Van Beethoven.
Logically, the name of SADLER’S WELLS can be often found in the maternal side of the pedigrees of the best progeny of DABIRSIM : he is as well the second dam sire of Group winner and classic placed Cœur de Beauté like in the one of G3 placed at 2 Hala Hala Athmani.
He also sired MONTJEU, damsire of Melodino who placed at G3 level at 2 in germany, and of Montussan who was Listed placed at 2. Let’s finally mention the Stakes winning juvenile Horizon Doré whose dam is by Enrique (a son of BARATHEA), Secret Potion whose second dam is by Old Vic, Pizzicato whose second dam is by Poliglote, and finally the twice Listed placed Frohsim whose dam is by Teofilo, a son of Chef de Race GALILEO !
Another way would be to look for the blood of close relatives to Sadler’s Wells such as FAIRY KING, his own brother (and sire of Encosta de Lago, damsire of Listed placed Flying Candy), or again PERUGINO, his three-parts brother (and sire of It’s Gino and Testa Rossa), without forgetting his relatives NUMEROUS and Jade Robbery, two sons of Mr Prospector.
It’s therefore time to enhance the efficiency of broodmares carrying GONE WEST (Mr Prospector) in their pedigrees : twice Listed winner Célestin is featuring ELUSIVE CITY as a damsire, a mating which is very similar to the one at the origin of G1 winners King David and WinWinWin and Group winning performers Howe Great and Secret Message, four sons of Hat Trick (the sire of DABIRSIM) !
DABIRSIM started his Stud career in Germany before coming back home, with as a main effect to cross him with the most popular German bloodlines. MONSUN is of course the best of it on an international basis, and it’s surely not a surprise to find his name as a damsire in the pedigrees of some of the best colts and fillies by DABIRSIM such as Ivanka (G3 placed at 2), Africa (Listed placed at 2), Secret Potion, and so on…
DABIRSIM has also done very well with LOMITAS mares (like for instance Listed winning filly Rose Flower as well as Sa Mola), LORD OF ENGLAND (damsire of Sa Mola), PETOSKI (second damsire of Not Mine), TOUCH DOWN (damsire of Listed winner and G3 placed colt Pizzicato), TERTULLIAN (damsire of Bavaria Baby and Bavaria Express), and some others…
Highly influent AREION, speed and precocity vector like his own sire Big Shuffle, has sired black type juveniles Caesarion and Cabarita with a mare coming out of the close family of DABIRSIM. Another mating to think about…
Let’s finally remind the pedigree of Listed winner Velma Valento, inbred on Halo and out of a granddaughter of Dubai Millennium (sire of Chef de Race DUBAWI), and his significants results with mares coming out of the DIESIS male line, with Briateke (dam by Halling) and Making Moovies (dam by Muhtathir) as best examples.
Other proven matings are featuring INDIAN RIDGE as the second damsire of Different League, but also EXIT TO NOWHERE, a half brother to Machiavellian who is also the second damsire of black type performer Frohsim. The names of KENDOR and HIGHEST HONOR are others that can be found in the pedigrees of the best progeny of DABIRSIM, clearly an individual whose genetic can match with many different bloodlines !
For the one seeking exciting inbreedings, please do not hesitate to duplicate the names of Chefs de Race Sunday Silence, Halo and Rainbow Quest, highly confirmed inbred combinations and, if possible, Elie Mares that are Cosmah, Flaming Page, Crimson Saint, I Will Follow and Madina !!!
