KAREL MIEDEMA’S ‘PICK OF THE BUNCH’

Suitable mares for Curved Ball could include:

  • Multiples of the mare Selene and descendants, which are widespread. Selene’s son Pharamond may be an important signpost.
  • Fastnet Rock’s Gr1 daughter Atlantic Jewel (unbeaten in 7 starts) hails from the same female line as the mare Lover’s Bid, who has number of descendants at stud in South Africa. That female line goes to champion filly Pass The Peace, who is grandam of sire King’s Apostle.
  • Twig Moss is from the same female line as Casey Tibbs, which draws attention to the latter.
  • Curved Ball’s dam Curvaceous has a close-up trio of Sir Tristram, Twig Moss and Biscay (2x2x3). The same three are in the mare Gatana, the grandam of Fastnet Rock (2x2x3). All three have backgrounds with one or more lines of Selene.
  • Curved Ball has the same 4th dam (Wiley Trade) as Dan de Lago.
