Buffalo Bill Cody’s pedigree gives a variety of kin-breeding options. His third dam Prayers ‘n Promises is closely kinbred, through her sire Foolish Pleasure (by What a Pleasure) and dam Luiana (by My Babu). My Babu also appears in the pedigree of Sri Pekan, whose sire Red Ransom is by Roberto (Hail to Reason) out of a mare by Damascus. My Babu is sire of Kerala, the dam of Damascus. Kerala is very close kin to Luiana in the bottom line. Kerala has other close kinships, notably Hail to Reason (sire of Roberto among others), Missy Baba (grandam of Lassie Dear) and Aimee (in Blushing Groom & others). My Babu is by Djebel out of Perfume and is 3-part brother to Joy (by son of Djebel x Perfume).

Another option could come from Redoute’s Choice’ third dam Dancing Show (by Nijinsky). Both Dancing Show and Nijinsky are close kin to Storm Bird, leading to Storm Cat (close kin to Nijinsky & The Minstrel).

A third option could be Crafty Admiral, damsire of Danzig and sire of Dorrine B, the third dam of Sri Pekan. There’s another link of Crafty Admiral with the bottom line of Buffalo Bill Cody. Crafty Admiral is very closely kinbred, involving full brothers Bull Dog and Sir Gallahad.

Suitable Lines

  • Kerala, through son Damascus and kin Hail To Reason (sire of Roberto) & Luiana (My Babu & by extension Joy).
  • Some examples (in no particular order). Captain Al, by Al Mufti (Roberto x Lassie Dear) out of mare by Complete Warrior (Damascus). Jet Master, dam by Rollins (Damascus x sister to Roberto), third dam by Joy. Right Approach, dam by Shadeed (Nijinsky x Damascus).
  • Tiger Ridge, by Storm Cat, dam daughter of Lassie Dear.
  • Other Lassie Dear female line descendants, incl Al Mufti (widespread), Duke Of Marmalade, AP Indy.
  • Twice Over, female line descendant of Kerala, with dam by Caerleon (Nijinsky) and 2nd dam by Blushing Groom (Aimee).
  • Rich Man’s Gold, dam by son of What A Pleasure out of daughter of Damascus. Dynasty, grandam by Joy and closely kinbred to female line of Joy (also the one of My Babu).
  • Hard Spun, by Danzig, and his grandam by Roberto out of Luiana. Rambo Dancer, dam by Luiana’s half brother Chateaugay.
  • Other options include female line descendants of Best In Show (Northern Guest, El Gran Senor, etc.), and Var, by son of Storm Cat, with female line ancestor by Crafty Princess (by Crafty Admiral) – she is close kin to Danzig’s damsire Admiral’s Voyage.
