Grinfromeartoear has enjoyed great success downunder and while his winners came out of many different type of mares one pattern did emerge - he crosses very well with mares by stallions from the famed Golden Miss family.
His three top performers are out of mares by stallions from the Golden Miss family - Smiling Shard, Make Me Smile and Rocknrolla. So mares by stallions such as Panorama, Safely Kept, Rocknroll Hanover, Rustler Hanover, Red River Hanover, Mystical Prince, J R Mint, Americas Pastime, etc are all desirable.
Going on his American results the most obvious choice for Grinfromeartoear mares is Jate Lobell line mares as this cross has been so successful in North Armerica producing the likes of Mister Big and Mr Feelgood.
Jate Lobell stallions include Safely Kept, Village Jasper, Caprock and Davids Pass. Safely Kept is particularly appealing as he is from the same family as Grinfromeartoear.
Of course mares by other No Nukes line stallions such as Live Or Die, Badlands Hanover, Western Terror, American Ideal, Jeremes Jet, Ticket To Heaven, Barnett Hanover, Union Guy, Kinney Hanover, Northern Lights and Die Laughing are also a good match for Grinfromeartoear.
Also of note is that 2 of Grinfromeartoear’s 11 sub 1:50 performers are out of Direct Scooter line mares which should mean that he will also achieve good results downunder with mares by the likes of In The Pocket, Christian Cullen, Mach Three, Stoneridge Scooter, Ok Bye, Deal Direct and Direct Flight. Of course the Group One Vicbred winner Grinnersawinner is also out of a Direct Scooter line mare.
Many of Grinfromeartoear’s best American performers are out of mares with a prominent dose of Albatross with Banner Yankee being out of a B Gs Bunny Mare and Geartogear, Putasmileon and Blue Burner all having a second dam by Albatross. Thus it is not surprising to see Grinfromeartoear crossing well with Albatross line mares downunder with the talented colts Grinjaro, The Smiler and Lots More Grins being bred on this cross.
Cam Fella line mares are also desirable for Grinfromeartoear and in the USA this cross has produced Not Enough, Grin Some More and Red Star Biggirl. While downunder it has produced Devilish Smile, My Dandy, etc.
Cam Fella line stallions downunder include Fake Left, Bettors Delight, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball, Blissfull Hall, Four Starzzz Shark, Precious Bunny, Pacific Fella, Camtastic, Cameleon, Brioso Hanover, Exotic Earl, etc.
In fact any mare by a Most Happy Fella line stallion (Troublemaker, Smooth Fella, etc) should cross well with Grinfromeartoear as this Artsplace / Most Happy Fella cross is also a very good cross.
Grinfromeartoear has also left good performers out of Falcon Seelster mares both here and in the Northern Hemisphere with the likes of Pure Power, Grin For Money, Moment Of Silence, etc being bred on this cross.
