Not a Single Doubt
Winner of the G3 Kindergarten Stakes as a juvenile and a G2 winner at three years, Doubtland is by top class sire, Not A Single Doubt. He traces on tail female line to RORY’S ROCKET, dam of outstanding sprinter, Rory’s Jester, who appears in Doubtland’s pedigree as damsire of Not A Single Doubt. This 4m x 4f inbreeding to RORY’S ROCKET creates a desirable Rasmussen Factor pattern which no doubt significantly contributed to Doubtland’s precocity.
Not a Single Doubt’s sire Redoute’s Choice and his second damsire Nijinsky II are members of the prepotent TORPENHOW family. Doubtland should welcome the presence of other family members in mares such as TRY MY BEST (sire of LAST TYCOON), DOMESDAY, THE MINSTREL (sire of PALACE MUSIC), HURRICANE SKY, XAAR, UMATILLA, MASTERCLASS, NEW REGENT, EL GRAN SENOR, SPINNING WORLD, GIELGUD, FAR NORTH, FREE AMERICA, RULER and DENON. Memsie Stakes winner Scales of Justice is by Not A Single Doubt out of a Umatilla mare, while dual G1 winner Shout The Bar carries Last Tycoon.
Not A Single Doubt’s granddam is EASY DATE, also dam of SNIPPETS and third dam of ZIZOU. Mares carrying SNIPPETS have worked very well with Redoute’s Choice (an example being Snitzel) and create desirable line breeding for Doubtland. Mares carrying or by his sons PINS, SNOWLAND and SNIPPETSON appeal.
Not A Single Doubt’s second damsire is Grand Chaudière, a SUNSHOT family member. NEVER BEND, SOLFERINO, KING OF THE TUDORS, SHINKO FOREST, BOLD REASON, BROOKFIELD and WINDSOR LAD add to this line. MILL REEF and RIVERMAN (including their descendants LOUP SAUVAGE, BRIEF TRUCE, RIVOTIOUS and MAROONED) can contribute Never Bend. G1 Railway stakes winner Good Project is by Not A Single Doubt and carries Never Bend via Marooned.
Seeking The Gold, grandsire of Doubtland’s dam, is a close relation of KING CUGAT, whose daughters create a desirable pattern with Doubtland.
Seeking The Gold’s sire Mr Prospector, Roan Rocket (twice) and Baldric II are members of the FRIZETTE family. This line can be reinforced by damsires such as ARTIE SCHILLER, TWENTY FOUR KARAT, GREGORIAN, FERDINAND, LOMOND, MUKADDAMAH and SEATTLE SLEW.
Both Redoute’s Choice and Mr Prospector have had great success with STORM CAT in pedigrees. SHAMARDAL, TALE OF THE CAT, HIGH YIELD, STATUE OF LIBERTY, VAN NISTELROOY, GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, CATRAIL, HENNESSY (and descendants HENNY HUGHES, TURFFONTEIN, JOHANNESBURG, SCAT DADDY and NO NAY NEVER) can be sought in mares.
Doubtland carries four lines to ALMAHMOUD family member, Northern Dancer, as well as fellow family member Danehill. MACHIAVELLIAN is another descendant, most easily sourced in Australia via his son, STREET CRY (sire of STREET BOSS, STREET SENSE, PER INCANTO etc). VETTORI is also a son of Machiavellian. HALO line mares also contribute to this line. Sources include MORE THAN READY, FUJI KISEKI, DON’T SAY HALO, SUNDAY SILENCE and SEBRING. Not A Single Doubt’s Golden Slipper winner Farnan is out of a Street Cry mare, while G1 winning filly Miracles of Life is out of a More Than Ready mare.
Other ALMAHMOUD family members to seek in mares are WAY OF LIGHT, EXIT TO NOWHERE, EL MOXIE, YOUTHFUL LEGS, DIATRIBE, ESPERERO, L’EMIGRANT, CANNONADE and ARCTIC TERN.
Doubtland’s sire line has responded very well to members of the THONG family. Redoute’s Choice has worked extremely well with mares by ENCOSTA DE LAGO, while Not A Single Doubt has produced G1 winners Mighty Boss out of an Encosta De Lago mare and Kenedna out of a daughter of Falbrav (Fairy King). Broodmare sire representatives of THONG family members SADLER’S WELLS, FAIRY KING and NUREYEV include ENCOSTA DE LAGO (and sons and grandsons such as MANHATTAN RAIN, NEEDS FURTHER, RUBICK, NORTHERN METEOR, DEEP FIELD, SHOOTING TO WIN and ZOUSTAR), FALBRAV, STRAVINSKY, SPINNING WORLD, STARCRAFT, PEINTRE CELEBRE, HIGH CHAPARRAL, SCENIC, CARNEGIE, EL PRADO (and sons ARTIE SCHILLER, KITTEN’S JOY and MEDAGLIA D’ORO), GALILEO and BARATHEA.
The LADY JOSEPHINE family is very well represented in Doubtland by Nassipour, Kalamoun, Nasrullah (8 lines), Fair Trial (7 lines), Mahmoud (8 lines), Tudor Minstrel, Badruddin, Jambo, Pherozshah and Coeur Volant. Daughters of DEEP FIELD, SHOOTING TO WIN, NEDIYM, OCTAGONAL, LONHRO, KAAPSTAD, COMMANDS, DANEWIN, KEMPINSKY, MOUAWAD and MOSSMAN, reinforce this line. Further back in pedigrees, ROYAL CHARGER, MIGOLI, NILO, FAUX TIRAGE, NIZAMI, FURROKH SIYAR, ARISTOPHANES, ABERNANT and PRINCE TAJ are desirable.
The SCHIAPARELLI family has Salmon Leap, Doubtland’s third damsire, as its representative. LAST TYCOON, CELTIC SWING, KING’S LAKE, DOGGER BANK, ROI DAGOBERT, IRISH BALL, BIKALA, SASSAFRAS, ASSERT and MASTHEAD will reinforce this line. Not A Single Doubt’s dual G1 winner Shout The Bar carries Last Tycoon via her damsire, O’Reilly.
