Pedigree Notesprint

By classic sire Soldier Hollow (top ranked stallion on the general sires list in Germany) and a mare who is only producing Group performers, DSCHINGIS SECRET had the pedigree to become a Champion. And that’s what exactly he became, using his high quality genetic potential to win six Group races including the Grosser Preis von Berlin G1, beating on the track high class performerssuch as Hawkbill, Iquitos,Cloth of Stars, Talismanic and others…

DSCHINGIS SECRET shall start his new career as a sire in 2019 at the Haras de Saint-Arnoult (61 – Exmes). If his genetic blessed him with a high class level, it clearly justifies the greatest hopes at Stud !

Wonderful and impressive individual with a lot of distinction and a perfect balance, DSCHINGIS SECRET is a mix of class, soundness and stamina, physical and mental qualities who drove him to win seven times around the classic distance including the Grosser Preis von Berlin G1 ahead of Champion Hawkbill, the Grosser Hansa-Preis G2 twice, the St Leger Italiano G3 at three and the Prix Foy G2 in front of Cloth of Stars and Talismanic. A more than decent visit card, which is now opening him the gates of a more than deserved career at Stud !


As strong as regular, DSCHINGIS SECRET is one of the best sons of Soldier Hollow, who headed the general sires list in Germany and who sired thirty Stakes winners including five at the highest level. A classic success which is probably due to his own sire In the Wings, one of the three best sons of Sadler’s Wells at Stud with Galileo and Montjeu, but also to his outstanding female family, the one who gave birth to Nureyev,Fairy King, Blame,El Condor Pasa, Archipenko and … Sadler’s Wells himself. Let’s also underline that Soldier Hollow is the result of a Formula 1 inbreeding on Elite Mare Thong, another potential explanation of his genetic strength !


DSCHINGIS SECRET is the first foal of triple winning dam Divya, a young broodmare whose name shall need to be reminded : only mated with Soldier Hollow, she foaled four racing age foals with him and all of them are Groupe performers, the last three being four year old filly Diana Storm, placed at G2 level in Germany, three year old colt Destino,G3 winner and second in the 2018 Deutsches Derby G1, and finally two year old colt Dschingis First, already placed at G3 level and surely a strong hope for next year’s classic season !

Let’s also remind that the third dam of Divya is no less than the Elite Mare Deceit, won won eleven times at 2 to 4 in USA including the Mother Goose St. G1, the Acorn St. G1 and the Matchmaker St. G1 at three. A high level of class and of soundness heritage which is clearly blessing the genetic of DSCHINGIS SECRET !


Carrying the blood of In the Wings, Sadler’s Wells, Shirley Heights, Kris, Caerleon, Surumu,Rainbow Quest and Caerleon,DSCHINGIS SECRET has got a genotype blessed with the best sources of classic stamina, the one that makes the greatest champions. And his pedigree is offering widely enough highly interesting mating options to justify the greatest hopes at Stud !

The pedigree of DSCHINGIS SECRET is offering many mating opportunities on which could be expected the greatest results. Among them are the following ones :


Daughters and granddaughters of DUBAWI shall be a priority, thus for many major reasons. First of all because Dubawi and In the Wings are sharing the same close female family, an union generating a very efficient duplication of Sunbittern, already confirmed at the highest level : as a matter of fact, G1 winners Left Hand, Wuheida and Too Darn Hot (2018 European Top 2yo Colt) are all by Dubawi and a granddaughter of In the Wings

Also, let’s add that In the Wings is out of a daughter of Shirley Heights, whose inbreeding can be found in the pedigrees of 8 G1 winners including 4 by Dubawi !!!


Often mated with MONSUN, the In the Wings male line has got high success with him in Germany. Among the bests is classic winner Pastorius, who is by Soldier Hollow and a daughter of Monsun.

Monsun is by the way bringing the blood of his damsire SURUMU, also prominent in the pedigree of DSCHINGIS SECRET, and whose inbreeding can be found in the pedigrees of 5 G1 winners in 4×4 or below. A combination that could also be generated through Lomitas, whose grandsires are respectively Nijinsky II and Surumu.

Sire of Monsun, KÖNIGSSTUHL shall be himself a serious mating option, extracted from the pedigree of Deutsches Derby G1 ace Welstar, who is by Soldier Hollow and a granddaughter to Königsstuhl, and from the Preis der Diana G1 winner Serienholde who is as well by Soldier Hollow and a granddaughter to Alkalde (Königsstuhl). An efficient variation of the nick In the Wings x Königgstuhl that can be found in the pedigree of Grosser Preis von Bayern G1 winner Ito !


At least as interesting than the previous ones, the name of KALAMOUN is looking highly promising to cross with the genetic of DSCHINGIS SECRET. Soldier Hollow has sired four times G1 winner Ivanhowe and classic ace Weltstar with daughters of STERNKÖNIG (Kalaglow), as well as classic winning filly Serienholde with a mare by HIGHEST HONOR (Kenmare). Let’s add that Champion Solow is by a son of In the Wings and a daughter of Highest Honor, and that the cross In the Wings x Kenmare has generated G1 winner Act One

These high quality references shall open the way to all mares carrying the blood of Kalamoun, through KENDOR or his son Kendargent, through Verglas or his son Stormy River, or through any others from this prominent sireline.


Four G1 winners are out of the recipe In the Wings x MR PROSPECTOR, notably through Gone West, Machiavellian (grandson of Halo) and Woodman. Kingmambo, whose damsire is Nureyev, shall be another one to look for.


SHARPEN UP is often found in good place in the pedigrees of G1 winners who are out of the In the Wings male line. Among them are Fidélité (dam by Sanglamore), Zanzibar (dam by Diesis), Folk Opera (dam by Halling), and of course Soldier Hollow himself (dam by Common Grounds). Duplications of Sharpen Up are by the way highly recommended with DSCHINGIS SECRET…

Priority shall be offered to the broodmares carrying DIESIS, a own brother to Kris who can be found in the pedigrees of Folk Opera and Zanzibar. An option that shall qualify daughters and granddaughters of Muhtathir…


BLUSHING GROOM is an option that can be compared to the previous one, as he can be found in the bottom part of the pedigrees of G1 winners Ivanhowe (second dam by Local Suitor), Act One (dam by Baillamont), Lahudood (dam by Arazi), and DSCHINGIS SECRET himself (via Rainbow Quest), all members of the In the Wings sireline.

Priority shall be offered to RAHY (a genetic equivalent of Rainbow Quest, both being by Blushing Groom and a daughter or granddaughter to Herbager), an option that shall qualify Giant’s Causeway (whose damsire is Rahy).

But the best option could be classic sire LE HAVRE : he is a son of Noverre, who is by a son of Blushing Groom and a daughter of Northern Dancer like the second dam of DSCHINGIS SECRET, and his damsire Surako is by Königgstuhl and a daughter of Surama, who shall therefore be duplicated in the mating. Let’s remind that Le Havre has sired G1 winner Suédois with a granddaughter of In the Wings, which is suggesting the highest expectations with this cross !!!


The pedigree of Soldier Hollow is blessed by a Formula one inbreeding on his direct ancestress Thong, through own sisters Lisadell and SPECIAL. The broodmares carrying the latter in their pedigree shall therefore be selected, whatever the source of the relative bloodline.

The first one shall be NUREYEV, a son of Special, for a mating rather similar to the one of Preis der Diana G1 winner Lacazar (who is by a son of In the Wings and a mare out of the Nureyev sireline, through Dai Jin).

FAIRY KING, own brother to Sadler’s Wells, could therefore generate a duplication of Elite Mare Fairy Bridge (a daughter of Special), like in the pedigrees of 4 G1 winners including Recoletos.

Let’s finally mention NUMEROUS (by Mr Prospector and a daughter of Special) and ARCHIPENKO (by Kingmambo and being himself the result of a Formula one inbreeding on Special), granddaughters of PERUGINO (a son of Fairy Bridge), and all mares carrying THATCH, a own brother to Special and Lisadell…


The blood of DANEHILL shall not be avoided, as he is appearing with In the Wings in the pedigrees of many G1 winners including Ave, Ito, Helmet,Luas Line and Queen’s Trust.

Priority shall be offered to TIGER HILL (damsire of Ito and bringing the blood of Herbager), DANSILI (bringing both Nijinsky II and Blushing Groom), Champs Elysées and Cacique (own brothers to Dansili), as well as MYBOYCHARLIE (carrying Thatch In the bottom part of his pedigree).

Other promising matings

Solider Hollow has sired a G1 winner with a granddaughter of SUAVE DANCER (Green Dancer), himself a grandson of Nijinsky II. The blood of CAERLEON shall be also accepted, for a classic inbreeding.

Same comment with ALLEGED, DARSHAAN and TOP VILLE, all highly efficient when mated with the Sadler’s Wells sireline.

AREION, sire of two Group winners with the immediate family of DSCHINGIS SECRET, has got as well very good arguments to justify his selection.

The inbreeding on SADLER’S WELLS shall finally be tried, if possible not too close in the pedigree and preferably through Galileo (bringing Mr Prospector) or Montjeu (bringing Top Ville).
