By Somebeachsomewhere, Sunshine Beach counts Artsplace and Jate Lobell as his first two dam sires, plus he hails from the great sire producing family of Golden Miss.
He possesses a pedigree to die for and should suit many Southern Hemisphere mares.
Firstly it is worth noting that Somebeachsomewhere’s exciting two year old colt Waikiki Beach is out of a Bettor’s Delight mare.
Intriguingly, there are only 6 foals of racing age in North America by Somebeachsomewhere out of mares by Bettor’s Delight – all 6 have won in sub-1:55 and 4 have already won over $100,000.
So Sunshine Beach looks a great match up for Bettor’s Delight mares.
In fact he should cross very well with all Cam Fella line mares given how well the Direct Scooter line stallions work with type of mare.
Cam Fella line stallions include Fake Left, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball, Washington VC, Precious Bunny, Four Starzzz Shark, Blissfull Hall, Pacific Fella, Camtastic, Cameleon, Brioso Hanover, Exotic Earl, etc.
Given Sunshine Beach’s first two dams are by Artsplace and Jate Lobell look for Abercrombie and No Nukes line mares to also produce good results with him.
Duplicating these two great sirelines has worked very well in the past and will continue to do so into the future.
Abercrombie line stallions include Art Major, Artsplace, Grinfromeartoear, Artiscape, Astreos, Modern Art, Albert Albert, Life Sign, Dream Away, Pacific Rocket, Fully Loaded, Peace Of Art, Panorama, etc.
While No Nukes line stallions include Safely Kept, Village Jasper, American Ideal, Badlands Hanover, Jereme’s Jet, Dawn Ofa New Day, Caprock, Ticket To Heaven, Barnett Hanover, Union Guy, etc.
The Direct Scooter line stallions have crossed exceptionally well with Falcon Seelster line mares. It is one of the best crosses in the Southern Hemisphere.
Falcon Seelster mares or mares by Falcon Seelster line stallions such as McArdle, Elsu, Million To One, Rich And Spoilt, Ultimate Falcon, Trump Casino, etc should be really well suited to Sunshine Beach mares.
Of course Albatross or Albatross line stallions have always worked well Direct Scooter line stallions and this should be no different for Sunshine Beach.
These include, but are not limited to Soky’s Atom, Holmes Hanover, Vance Hanover, Butler BG, BGs Bunny and Jaguar Spur.
Increasingly there has been a number of well performed horses bred, in New Zealand specifically, with a duplication of Direct Scooter.
So this could be another cross to look out for with Sunshine Beach.
Obtaining this duplication could be achieved with mares containing Direct Scooter line stallions (Christian Cullen, Courage Under Fire, In The Pocket, Changeover, etc) in their pedigree.
Or alternatively with mares that possess pedigrees featuring stallions containing Direct Scooter maternally, eg Rocknroll Hanover, American Ideal, Shadow Play, etc.
We also mentioned that Sunshine Beach is from the sire producing family of Golden Miss. Duplicating this wonderful mare has proved positive results, so if you own a mare by Rocknroll Hanover, Panorama, Safely Kept, Real Desire or Grinfromeartoear then consider breeding her to Sunshine Beach.
