Breeder's Guide 1990 - Wing Commander grandsons

11/9/13 Since I did Supreme Sultan & Valley View Supreme grandsons last week, this week will list the grandsons & great grandson's that had Wing Commander on the sire line.  This Breeder's Guide was from 1990, so it is easy to see why Wing is so dominant today.  The major lines to Wing Commander come from Yorktown, Chief of Greystone, Wing's Fleet Admiral, Will Shriver and Flight Time.

All Night Long
by Jamestown by Yorktown by Wing Commander out of a Valley View Supreme mare

By Chief of Greystone by Wing Commander
He was a wonderful sire and some of his stallion sons were
Black Bottom Pie, The Mean Machine, Attache's Liquid Assets, Attache's Born Believer,
The Wish Card, Attache's Thunderbolt and Finally Attached. 

Attache's Liquid Asset
By Attache out of Mona Denmark (BHF) by Oman's Desdemona Denmark
A good sire by Attache, his daughter CH Assets and Attitude was a 5 gaited show horse and
her 2nd dam was by Buddy's sire Grand View's Matinee Idol.  I got to see her show at
Lexington and Louisville several times. 

Broadland's Beau
sired by New Yorker out of Smile Awhile by Grand Command

Callaway's Show Down
By the Will Shriver son Show Me Too and out of Lady Symbol(BHF) by Status Symbol
He was bred by Callaway Hill's Stable but didn't sire any colts after 1991.

By Fountain of Youth by Yorktown by Wing Commander
He has blessed us with may colorful and talented offspring
including CH Caravelle (BHF), CH Sprinkles and my favorite CH Like Thunder.
Some of his colts showed at the winter Olympics in Japan in 1998 and also make
annual appearances at the Rose Bowl Parade on New Year's Day.

CH Courageous Admiral
by Wing's Fleet Admiral by Wing Commander, out of Indiana JEM by Indiana Ace
He sired Champions Button Bright, Top Spool and Admiral's Mark.  His sons
Desert's Supreme Admiral  and Periaptor sired a lot of nice colts.

Courageous Sunny
by Courageous Admiral, he only sired one registered ASB.

Flame of Greystone
By Chief of Greystone by Wing Commander out of High Point Flame (BHF) by Starheart Stonewall
His breeding should have made him awesome, but I don't know much about him.

Harlem Globemaster
by Harlem Globetrotter out of Tashi's Gift, 2nd dam CH Tashi Ling
He stood in Texas for many years and had Wing Commander appear 3 times on
his registration papers.

Harlem Globetrotter
Also by New Yorker out of Putting on Airs BHF by Mr. Magic Man
He was a full brother to BHF mare Yorkshire Pudding.
He was a World's Champion 5gaited stallion and lived to the ripe old age of 31.
Daughters Globetrotting Lady and CH Garland's Dream are in the BHF.
Garland's Dream was also a WGC 5 gaited horse (see post on Double Duty mares)
Other CH get include Passion, Harlem Town, Holy Fruit Salad, Harlem's Hot Ticket,
Gracie Mansion, Elegant Stitches and too many more to list.
Plus he had the best female line of any horse out there. 'Nuf said.

Harlem's Hot Dice
By Harlem Globetrotter out of Dice Girl by Genius Bourbon King
He sired the beautiful CH Audrey Hepburn.

Lunar Fire GS
by Good Spirits by Wing Commander out of a Valley View Supreme daughter
His 2nd dam was Duchess of Grandview (BHF) and 2rd dam was CH America Beautiful (BHF)

New Challenge
by CH Superior Odds by Wing's Fleet Admiral by CH Wing Commander
His dam was a granddaughter of Wild Wind (BHF), my all time favorite broodmare.

Phi Slama Jama
Yes, I know he shouldn't be here, but this is interesting.
Originally, he was supposed to be sired by Admiral's Windjammer by Courageous Admiral.
DNA proved him to be the only offspring of the gelded (OH NO!) Karankawa Chief that
traced back to Ridgefields' Genius.  Regardless of his breeding, Phi was beautiful,
a great sire, and provided us with a whole lot of cute Phi names in saddlebreds.

Sky Watch
By Flight Time by Wing Commander out of Arie's Golden Gift (BHF) by Genius bourbon King
He was a 4 time World's Grand Champion 5 gaited horse. 
He sired stallions Castle Bravo, The Sky King and CH Harvest Commander

The Mean Machine
Another stallion by Attache, he was out of Mona Denmark
making him a full brother to Liquid Asset.

The New York Times
Yet another New Yorker son out of Canterbury Lane by Oman's Desdemona Denmark. 
He sired CH That's My Story who went on to produce CH And I'm Stickin' To It and
several other cleverly named colts.

Time Willing
by CH Will Shriver out of CH Cora's Time
Both his sire and dam were 5-gaited WGC's so it's too bad he was only lightly used at stud.
