KIN-BREEDING: the sequence of damsires, for five generations, of Dynasty’s Gr1 winners shows Drum Beat appearing more than once, while related names appear. Gone West (in Jackson) is sire of Western Winter (in Futura). Badger’s Drift (in Futura) and Restructure (in Legislate) are both out of mares by Thatching who is full brother to Golden Thatch (in Futura). These full brothers are out of Abella, by Abernant -  who is close kin to Drum Beat, and to the mare Mixed Marriage, third dam of Gone West. Another kin-link is to the mare Farthing Damages, who is doubled in the dam of Pole Position (in Ancestral Fore). This leads to kin-relatives Court Martial and Tudor Minstrel. Dynasty kin-links through his 3rd dam Lavenda Lady, by Abernant, and close kin to Drum Beat et al, including the mare Popcorn (in Irish Flame).

SADLER'S WELLS line sires in South Africa: Flying The Flag, Global View, New Predator,  The United States (Galileo); Elusive Fort (Fort Wood); Act Of War, Futura, Horizon, Legislate (Dynasty); Potala Palace (Singspiel); Admiral Kitten (Kitten’s Joy)

Pedigree

Futura’s dam Scribblin’ The Cat is kinbred 3x3 to full brothers Thatching and Golden Thatch, who are themselves closely kin-bred, 3x4 to Dalmary, who is female line ancestress of their sire Thatch and dam Abella (who is by Abernant). The presence of Abernant looks to be significant, but there’s more.

Badger’s Drift is by Badger Land, whose grandam Mime (by Pretense) is close kin to Fall Aspen (by Pretense). Fall Aspen is the dam of Dynasty’s sire Fort Wood, a son of Sadler’s Wells (from the Dalmary female line).

Badger’s Drift’s grandam Abrinya (by Red God) is 3-part sister to influential sire Blushing Groom. The latter’s dam Aimee (grandam of Abrinya) is very close kin to Mime and to Fall Aspen. Aimee is by Tudor Minstrel, and very close kin to Mixed Marriage (by Tudor Minstrel), who is third dam of Gone West (sire of Western Winter). Western Winter is the sire of Futura’s grandam Winter Fox, and is kinbred 4x4 to Mixed Marriage and Court Martial.

The close kinship between all of Abernant, Mixed Marriage, Court Martial, Drum Beat, Farthing Damages, Tudor Minstrel (and others) provides a wealth of opportunity for Futura
