Rebel Dane Success!

[March 2013]

Lack of time has resulted in our being much behind with updating this website. In the interim, before compiling a comprehensive update, we submit this story from our agent in Sydney which contains details of one of the more successful “Brain”matings of the last couple of years.


“Some years ago, Patrick Brain wrote an article on Ribot [click here to see the article] detailing how a series of five compatible matings over 50 years culminated in the first classic winner in the family for those five generations, when Ribot was produced.


After three consecutive generations of compatible matings since Laurel Oak became Australasian agent to Brain International in 1992, Rebel Dane [California Dane out of Texarkana] has been produced.


10 days ago Rebel Dane made it four wins out of four, in winning the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes in Sydney.


Last Saturday Rebel Dane was beaten a short head by last year’s Golden slipper winner Pierro on a heavy track in the Group 2 Hobartville stakes over 1400m on a heavy track in Sydney.


Rebel Dane is now expected to go for the Guineas in two weeks time”.

From Australia

The list of compatibly mated results in the following news updates consists of those City winners, Black Type winners and Black Type placegetters that we are aware of that were identified SPECIFICALLY TO CLIENTS (as part of broodmare or yearling analysis work), either BEFORE CONCEPTION or BEFORE SALE AS A YEARLING.


The pre-conception or pre-sale timing of analysis work is testimony to the predictive powers of Brain Pedigree Analysis given the frequency of successful performers relative to the small percentage of the Australian thoroughbred population that has actually been analysed let alone identified as compatible or recommended. In addition to the horses listed, there are many other successful horses that are compatibly mated that were not subject to analysis request by clients.



There has been a number of highlights in the current 2011/2012 season amongst horses that were identified specifically to clients as part of broodmare or yearling analysis, either before conception or before sale as a yearling.


  • Whobegotyou –this stalwart campaigner returned for another successful season by winning the Gr 2 PB Lawrence Stakes at Caulfield before running 3rd in the Datotan Chin Nam Stakes at Moonee Valley. This highly-compatible mating was identified when his dam Temple Of Peace was purchased by Laurel Oak Bloodstock carrying Whobegotyou.
  • Satin Shoes –winner of the Listed Quezette Stakes and 3rd in the Gr 1 Coolmore Stakes at Flemington she was identified as a compatible mating as a yearling.
  • Trusting –bred by Fairway Thoroughbreds as a result of a highly-recommended mating Trusting won Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes at Warwick Farm and Group 2 Hill Stakes at Rosehill.
  • Bliss Street –winner of the Gr 3 Thousand Guineas Prelude at Caulfield and runner-up in the Gr 2 Edward Manifold Stakes at Flemington and the Listed Jeep Stakes at Moonee Valley this filly was identified as a compatible mating as a yearling.
  • Big Time and Quackquack –provided the quinella in the Listed Dulcify Handicap at Rosehill. Both horses were identified as compatible matings as yearlings.
  • King Lionheart and Fast Clip –provided the quinella in the Gr 2 Shannon Stakes at Rosehill. King Lionheart was identified as a compatible mating as a yearling while Fast Clip was bred by Ramsey Pastoral to a highly-recommended mating.
  • Black Caviar –the undefeated darling of the Australian turf has won the Gr 2 Schillaci Stakes, Gr 2 Moir Stakes and Gr 1 Patinack Classic to make it 16 wins from 16 starts. She was identified as a compatible mating when analysed as a yearling.
  • Huegill –this promising colt ran 3rd in the Gr 1 Caulfield Guineas. He was bred by and is raced Ramsey Pastoral and is the product of a highly-recommended mating.

Other horses deserving of mention identified after they started racing are:

  • Manawanui –identified as a highly-compatible mating when his dam Lady Remlap was analysed. At the time Manawanui had won a Sydney midweek race. This season Manawanui has won Gr 3 Up And Coming Stakes at Warwick Farm, the Gr 1 Golden Rose at Rosehill, the Gr 2 Stan Fox Stakes at Randwick, was 2nd in the Gr 1 Caulfield Guineas, and won the Gr 2 AAMI Vase at Moonee Valley
  • Albert The Fat –identified as a highly-compatible when his half-brother by Al Maher was being analysed as a yearling. At the time Albert The Fat was a Brisbane metropolitan winner only. This season he recorded his 2nd Gr 1 victory in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington after earlier finishing 3rd in the Gr 2 The Shorts at Rosehill and 2nd in the Gr 3 Moonga Stakes at Caulfield
