A Rocknroll Dance is beautifully bred being by Rocknroll Hanover out of a Cam’s Card Shark half sister to the champion sire Western Hanover.
He possesses the No Nukes and Cam Fella sirelines through Rocknroll Hanover and Cam’s Card Shark, and also a duplication of the mare Wendymae Hanover – which opens up a lot of possibilities for him as a sire.
One of the best crosses for Rocknroll Hanover was Artsplace and Artsplace line stallions and we see no reason why this should not also be the case for A Rocknroll Dance as well.
In Australia and New Zealand such Artsplace line stallions include Art Major, Grinfromeartoear, Sportswriter, Artiscape, Modern Art, Dream Away, Perfect Art, Astreos, Fully Loaded, Peace Of Art, etc.
A mating with a Modern Art mare would be very interesting as Wendymae Hanover is not only A Rocknroll Dance’s second dam but also Modern Art’s.
In fact A Rocknroll Dance should suit most Abercrombie line mares. This includes mares by Real Desire, Albert Albert, Life Sign, Pacific Rocket, Panorama, etc.
Another great cross for Rocknroll Hanover has been Cam Fella line mares. Examples include A Rocknroll Dance himself, I Luv The Nitelife, Simply Business, Tobago Clays, Valentino, etc.
Now any mating of a Cam Fella line mare with A Rocknroll Dance will reinforce this cross as well as possibly resulting in a reverse sex cross to Cam Fella or Cam’s Card Shark. Reverse sex crosses have worked really for many stallions.
Potential Cam Fella line stallions include Bettor’s Delight, Fake Left, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball, Precious Bunny, Pacific Fella, Camtastic, Cameleon, Brioso Hanover, Exotic Earl, etc.
Of note for owners of a smaller Bettors Delight's mare, A Rocknroll Dance is a potentially a good physical match up as he is a big, strong stallion.
Direct Scooter line mares also look to be a very good option for A Rocknroll Dance. Horses such as Shes A Runa (Jeremes Jet / Christian Cullen) and Besotted (American Ideal / In The Pocket) are Southern Hemisphere examples of the Western Hanover / Direct Scooter cross.
What’s more, A Rocknroll Dance presents Direct Scooter in his pedigree via Rich N Elegant (the dam of Rocknroll Hanover) so when crossed with a mare by a Direct Scooter line stallion the resulting foal will carry an attractive reverse sex cross to Direct Scooter.
Examples of Direct Scooter line stallions include In The Pocket, Christian Cullen, Courage Under Fire, Mach Three, Tinted Cloud, Julius Caesar etc.
Traditionally Albatross line mares have crossed well with Western Hanover line stallions and bearing that in mind mares by such stallions as Soky's Atom, Vance Hanover, Holmes Hanover, Butler BG, Vance Hanover, Talk About Class, Tompkins Hanover, etc, could all be well suited to A Rocknroll Dance.
In recent times the doubling up of No Nukes has become more prevalent. Both Western Ideal and American Ideal have both left very good horses out of No Nukes line mares.
Examples of No Nukes line stallions include Live Or Die, Badlands Hanover, Safely Kept, Village Jasper, Caprock, Ticket To Heaven, Barnett Hanover, Western Terror, Union Guy, Kinney Hanover, Northern Lights, etc.
Mares by sons of Western Hanover will present a foal with a 4x3 cross to Western Hanover when crossed with A Rocknroll Dance. This is not too close and will also present the intriguing triple strain of the outstanding mare Wendymae Hanover.
Falcon Seelster mares are terrific broodmares and cross with a variety of different sirelines including the Western Ideal line, eg Ideal Scott (American Ideal / Falcon Seelster) and Dawn Ofa New Day (Western Ideal / Falcon Seelster).
