War Front’s SigAnc (Significant female line Ancestor) appears to be Sunny Vale, SigAnc also of Dynaformer and two sisters, who appear in several of War Front’s best runners. Sunny Vale is close kin to Lady Lawless, SigAnc in the female line of Missy Baba (Lassie Dear). Kin-links with female line descendants of Sunny Vale include Change Water (dam of Fall Aspen), Con Game (in Seeking The Gold).
Fire Way hails from an Argentine female line, with very solid bottom female-line connections, culminating in unbeaten champion Personal Ensign. SigAnc appears to be Grecian Banner and her daughter Personal Ensign, preceded by the closely kinbred mother and daughter pair Donatila and Dona Ines.
This sequence of SigAnc shows to have strong kin-links with other notable female lines.
Personal Ensign is kinbred bottom female-lines La Troienne x Dona Ines. The mating of Personal Ensign to Mr Prospector (resulting in Miner’s Mark, Our Emblem) is a variation on the theme from the pedigree of Woodman, who is kin-bred 3x3x3x4 Raise You x *Miss Dogwood x Busanda x *Striking (the latter two grandaughters of La Troienne), and also appear 2x2 (97% kin-ship) in Numbered Account, the dam of Personal Ensign’s sire Private Account.
With Personal Ensign to Easy Goer the same happens; the mating gave G1 My Flag, who is kinbred 6x6x7x7x6 la Troienne x *la Troienne x la Troienne x la Troienne x *Dona Ines 90%.
For interest, Woodman is damsire of More Than Ready, whose dam Woodman’s Girl traces to la Troienne and comes with four lines of that mare.
Other strong kin-linked SigAncs include Lassie Dear (kin to Private Account, Numbered Account), Change Water (kin to Numbered Account), Special (female line of Sadler’s Wells, Nureyev; close kin to Dorine, dam of Grecian Banner), Coup de Folie (dam of Machiavellian; kin to Grecian Banner), Aster (in Galileo, Sea The Stars; close kin to Donatila), Feola (kin to Dona Ines, Dona Cecilia; in this family in context of female line of Pulpit).
La Troienne is notable in this family’s major runners through Buckpasser. The posterchild for the kin-breeding is 2019 G1 performer Seeking The Soul, by Perfect Soul (Sadler’s Wells), with damsire Seeking The Gold, and Grecian Banner bottom-line.
This is also the female line of former Mauritzfontein mare Wise Critic (Nureyev x daughter of Dorine), who is still represented in SA. One of her descendants Tinder Box is by Smart Strike (Mr P) out of Dry Stick, by Fort Wood (Sadler’s Wells) out of Wise Critic (Nureyev). Tinder Box bred Gr1 2yo Guiness, and has a 2019 CTS Book One yearling filly by Oratorio.
