Mach Three

1:49 - $2,376,700. Bay Horse foaled 1999. 15.2 Hands

From his very first crop, Mach Three showed he is an exceptional sire with the ability to sire superior performers.

In his career, Mach Three sired multiple Grand Circuit winners, Derby and Oaks winners, Breeders Crown winners, Harness Jewels winners, Sales Classic winners and just about any other race you care to mention!

It is also rare to find a stallion that sired absolute champions in both hemispheres.

In 2017 he was elected to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame.

He will be sorely missed.

Very much a proven stallion, we can look at Mach Three's progeny to see what patterns are emerging.

One of the best crosses for Mach Three, both in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere has been the Mach Three / Beach Towel cross. Horses such as Somebeachsomewhere, Sir Lincoln and Muscle Beach are all bred this way.

Like most Direct Scooter line stallions Mach Three has crossed extremely well with Falcon Seelster mares leaving such horses as Fiery Falcon, Millwood Meg and Fly Like An Eagle.

So any Falcon Seelster or Falcon Seelster line mares (such as McArdle, Elsu, Million To One, Ultimate Falcon, etc) could be well suited for Mach Three.

In terms of the amount of $100,000 earners produced, Alabatross line mares are achieving the best results with Mach Three. These $100,000 earners include Auckland Reactor (Sokys Atom), Captain Joy (Talk About Class), Kotare Mach (Butler BG), Hes My Hero (Vance Hanover), Three Over Three (Holmes Hanover), The Big Mach (Our Sir Vancelot), etc.

No Nukes line mares have also achieved very good results with Mach Three. Live Or Die, Badlands Hanover, Caprock and Northern Lights mares have all left $100,000 earners by Mach Three.

Mach Three over Cam Fella line mares has been a cross that has really started to achieve great results. Horses such as Mysta Magical Mach (Camtastic), Majestic Mach (Fake Left), Rosa Mach (Fake Left), Mach Alert (Fake Left) and star Canadian female Monkey On My Wheel (Presidential Ball) are all by Mach Three out of Cam Fella line mares.

Interestingly Mach Three has left some very good horses out of Road Machine mares from a limited amount of foals. Such horses include Russley Rascal, Joyfuljoy and the $100,000 earner Red Army.

Also other Most Happy Fella line mares have produced good results with Mach Three leaving Mah Sish (New York Motoring), Scotty Mach (Bo Scots Blue Chip), etc.

Also many of Mach Three's better performers also contain Tar Heel prominently in their maternal pedigree. So look for that to keep occurring.
