Meet Brian's Spirit, a colt who thought he was king from the day he was born. Raised holistically on a small farm to preserve his passion and bred to win at the highest levels of thoroughbred racing, Brian's Spirit has a pedigree that was analyzed and researched for more than a year before Hat Trick was chosen as the stallion to mate with his dam, Swifter. Many prayers later, this mating produced a colt beyond my wildest dreams.
Brian's Spirit is the grandson of TWO Breeders Cup Classic winners, Sunday Silence and Alphabet Soup. In addition, he also has two Breeders' Cup winners, Cozzene and Fly So Free, in his third generation. With all of these Breeders' Cup winners present in Brian's Spirit's 2nd and 3rd generations, he was nominated to the Breeders' Cup races as a weanling.
Brian's Spirit's sire Hat Trick (Jpn) sold for $700,000 as a yearling and was the 2005 Champion Sprinter or Miler in Japan and a multiple Group 1 stakes winner. Hat Trick also ran one of the fastest miles in thoroughbred racing history (1:32.1). To date, Hat Trick has sired one champion (Dabirsim, Champion 2-Year Old Colt of France) and a total of five Grade 1 or Group 1 stakes winners in Argentina, France and the United States (Darbirsim, Giant Killing, Hat Puntano, King David and Zapata). In 2013, his son Bright Thought set a new world record for 12 furlongs of 2:22:72. Hat Trick's daughter, Three Hearts, recently sold for $650,000 at the 2017 Keeneland November Sale.

The three sires in Brian's Spirit's first two generations HAT TRICK (Jpn), SUNDAY SILENCE and ALPHABET SOUP earned $3,122,708, $4,968,554 and $2,990,270, respectively.
Pocahontas is Alive and Well in Brian's Spirit
If the information available on this website has not yet convinced you to invest in Spirit, I'm excited to inform you that the strategic mating between Hat Trick and Swifter produced an estimated 3,218 duplications of the famous broodmare Pocahontas (1837). Although Pocahontas was born 182 years ago, amazingly she still makes up an estimated 7.17% of Spirit's blood. This estimate was based on a 20% subsample of the 512 horses in Spirit's 9th generation. In comparison, a subsample of the horses in Arrogate's pedigree showed that duplications of Pocahontas made up 6.65% of his blood.
This estimated concentration of Pocahontas' blood is equivalent to the influence of an ancestor between the 3rd and 4th generations of Spirit's pedigree. This high concentration of Pocahontas' blood in Spirit is important because it is widely believed Pocahontas was the original source of a genetic mutation for an enlarged heart and for great speed combined with stamina in the Thoroughbred breed.
Brian's Spirit has cross duplicates of three horses (Halo, Damascus, and Arts and Letters) within his first five generations which are all intrinsically linked to the Triple Crown races. Spirit also has an excellent Coefficient of Inbreeding of 3.35%. The breeding pattern of duplicating three horses within five generations has been highly successful and exhibited by many of the greatest racehorses, broodmares and sires in thoroughbred racing history, including Arrogate, Black Caviar, California Chrome, Frankel, Seabiscuit, Seattle Slew and Zenyatta, in addition to many others you can read about in the attached documents. In Spirit's pedigree, these six cross duplications are sex-balanced between the sire and the dam portions of his pedigree, thus Spirit's pedigree expresses both the X and Y chromosomes of all three of these sires.

The principle goal of mating Hat Trick (Jpn) with Swifter was to produce a colt that would compete in the Triple Crown races. Brian's Spirit's grandsire, Sunday Silence, nearly won the Triple Crown, winning the Kentucky Derby and Preakness before finishing second in the Belmont. Halo (3x4) sired two Kentucky Derby winners, Sunday Silence and Sunny's Halo, and was a half-brother to Queen Sucree, the dam of 1974 Kentucky Derby winner, Cannonade. Damascus (4x5x6) won the Preakness and Belmont after finishing 3rd in the Kentucky Derby as the favorite. Arts and Letters (4x5) finished second in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness before winning the Belmont. Sunday Silence, Damascus and Arts and Letters all won Horse of the Year honors as three-year olds. Caro (4th generation) sired Winning Colors, one of only three fillies to ever win the Kentucky Derby.
Dink (1991) researched the 45,643 foals of the 1983 crop of thoroughbreds and determined that the only productive pedigree pattern for inbreeding by position was the presence of a sire in the top male line and its duplication as a sire of a broodmare in the tail female line. Spirit has three sires in his top male line that exhibit this pattern: Halo, Pharos and Bend Or.
Another indicator of potential thoroughbred racing success is the number of elite broodmares in Spirit's pedigree. He has three in his fourth generation (Cosmah, Ride The Trails and Lady Cutlass) and five in his fifth generation (No Third Chance, Almahmoud, Resolver, Cosmah, and General's Sister). Each of these broodmares produced at least two Group 1 or Grade 1 stakes winning or stakes placed offspring.

The story of Brian’s Spirit, who is named after my nephew Brian, was set into motion by a simple request to look at my co-worker’s Jockey Club mare papers in 2014 during the time period of California Chrome’s victory in the Kentucky Derby. Prior to that time, I’d primarily been involved with thoroughbred racing as a spectator, bettor and participant in horserace handicapping tournaments. However, something clicked with those Jockey Club papers in my hand. The amazing thing was that although this co-worker knew nothing about my nephew Brian at that time, the date she finally gave me those papers was September 5, which just happened to be the same date my nephew Brian was killed in a car accident in 2000!
I’d always wanted to breed, own and race a thoroughbred horse and here is where it went from dreaming to doing. I studied the pedigrees of every sire in the U.S. and read every book and article I could find about thoroughbred conformation, breeding and pedigree theories for more than a year. The results of this intriguing study ended with my selection of Hat Trick (JPN) as the best sire to mate with Swifter. In February of 2015, my co-worker and her daughter hauled Swifter to Lexington to be bred by Hat Trick. There was no stopping the dream now!
Fast forward to March 7, 2016, when my dream manifested itself in a beautiful healthy colt. Who knew a co-worker with a free mare sired by a Breeders' Cup Classic winner could lead to this. Become a thoroughbred racing partnership owner and watch the rest of this dream come to life. As you’ve read, Brian’s Spirit has the conformation and pedigree to run with the best 3-year old colts in 2019.
