A. P. Warrior--Crafty Sarah, by Crafty Friend

Download Full Pedigree (PDF)

Siete de Oros' pedigree creates some question about his effectiveness at 1 1/4 miles.

His sire, A. P. Warrior, didn't have the stamina one might have hoped for from a son of Hall of Famer A.P. Indy. A. P. Warrior scored his major wins at 1 1/16 miles, in the San Felipe and La Jolla on turf, and was a well-beaten third in his attempts at 1 1/8 miles. By far his worst career performance was his 18th behind Barbaro in the 2006 Kentucky Derby.

A. P. Warrior's distance capacity might have been limited by his dam, Warrior Queen, a talented sprinter in England and Ireland. At stud, A. P. Warrior appears to be transmitting this speedier element, as exemplified by last year's unbeaten Hutcheson hero Thunder Moccasin.

Siete de Oros is the first runner produced by Crafty Sarah, who won from six furlongs up to 1 1/16 miles. She is by the classy sprinter-miler Crafty Friend, a near-millionaire with victories in the Forego and Tom Fool Handicaps among his highlights. Crafty Friend sired horses of a similar profile, such as Kilroe Mile hero Ever a Friend and $1.3 million-earning sprinter Friendly Island.

Crafty Sarah is out of the winning Shine on Sarah, whose bloodlines could offer more stamina. Shine on Sarah's sire, Secreto, captured the 1984 Epsom Derby, and her broodmare sire is Hall of Famer Buckpasser.

Further back, this is the accomplished family of sires Carson City and General Meeting.
