Pedigree Analysis for Drain the Clock

A brilliant grade one winning sprinter, Drain the Clock defeated Champion Jackie’s Warrior to claim the Woody Stephens Stakes (G1). A son of the fast-rising Maclean’s Music, Drain the Clock is from an outstanding international family

One of the most potent crosses for Maclean’s Music has been with A.P. Indy line mares. This has produced classic winner Cloud Computing out of a mare by A.P. Indy himself; Jackie’s Warrior out of a mare by A.P. Fivehundred; and stakes winners out of mares by Sky Mesa (by Pulpit, also sire of Tapit and Stroll) and Girolamo.  Pulpit and Girolamo are both by A.P. Indy out mares by Mr. Prospector, as are Malibu Moon and Flatter (brother to Congrats) – both broodmare sires of stakes winners by stallions from the line Distorted Humor, the sire of Maclean’s Music – and Mineshaft (sire of Dialed In and Discreetly Mine). Other sources of A.P. Indy would include Bernardini, Majestic Warrior and Jump Start. 

Intriguingly, Maclean’s Music has already sired three stakes winners, including grade one winner, out of mares by Yes It’s True, whose grandsire, Raja Baba, is from the same sire line and family as A.P. Indy.

Maclean’s Music is also sire of graded-winning sprinter, Classic Rock, out of a mare by High Yield, a Storm Cat son who gives inbreeding to Maclean’s Music’s grandsire, Forty Niner. From other branches of the Storm Cat line, Maclean’s Music also has a stakes winner out of mare by Storm Cat himself; stakes winner Tamborera out of a mare by Harlan’s Holiday, who is by Harlan, and who is sire of Into Mischief, Majesticperfection and Shanghai Bobby; and a stakes winner by Lion Heart (sire of Kantharos, and himself a son of Tale of the Cat). The broader cross of Distorted Humor line stallions with Storm Cat line mares has produced grade one winners out of mares by Giant’s Causeway and his son, Shamardal; a five grade one winners out of mares by Bernstein; a grade one winner out of a mare by D’Wildcat (by Forest Wildcat, sire of Wildcat Heir); a grade one winner out of a mare by Tiger Ridge; and graded stakes winners out of mares by Storm Boot; Pure Prize; Henny Hughes (by Hennessy, whose son, Johannesburg, is sire of Scat Daddy); and Stormy Atlantic. Maclean’s Music also has a stakes winner out of a mare by Royal Academy, a close relative to Storm Cat.

Storm Cat is a Northern Dancer line horse, and from the Deputy Minister branch of that line Maclean’s Music has stakes winner Share the Upside out of a mare by Silver Deputy (sire of Posse, Badge of Silver and Spring at Last) and stakes winner Lead Guitar out of a mare by Finality, a son of Dehere (sire of Graeme Hall). Deputy Minister can also be brought in through Awesome Again (sire of Ghostzapper), Touch Gold and French Deputy.

Maclean’s Music has two-year-old stakes winner Made Me Shiver out of a mare by Tiznow, and stakes winner Angle of Attack out of a mare by that horse’s son, Colonel John. Other sons of Tiznow include Gemologist, Morning Line, Tiz Wonderful and Tizway. It would also be possible to bring in Relaunch – grandsire of Tiznow – through Honour and Glory and his son, Put It Back – both broodmare sire of Distorted Humor line stakes winners – and Bertrando (sire of Officer).

Maclean’s Music is out of a mare by Unbridled’s Song, but has sired multiple stakes winner Spring Steen out of a mare by that horse, and stakes winner Honolulu out of a mare by Malabar Gold, a close relative to Unbridled’s Song. Distorted Humor and his sons have also enjoyed success with mares by Unbridled (by Fappiano), and other sons Grindstone (sire of Birdstone) and Saarland. The Unbridled’s Song branch could be brought in through such as Liam’s Map, Cross Traffic, First Defence, Half Ours, Midshipman, Old Fashioned, Rockport Harbor and Songandaprayer. This also suggests daughters of Empire Maker (sire of Pioneerof the Nile and Bodemeister, and grandsire of Cairo Prince and Classic Empire) and Broken Vow.

It would also be possible to introduce Fappiano through Cryptoclearance, who is sire of Victory Gallop, and grandsire of Candy Ride, and Quiet American (grandsire of Midnight Lute). Fappiano is a grandson of Mr. Prospector, and Maclean’s Music has stakes winners out mares by Mr. Prospector line horses Afleet Alex (by Northern Afleet, who is bred on a similar cross to Kingmambo, sire of Lemon Drop Kid), Street Boss (by Street Cry, sire of Street Sense), Two Punch (sire of Smoke Glacken) and Mutakddim (by Seeking the Gold, sire of Petionville and Cape Town). 

Maclean’s Music also has stakes winner Firecrow out of a mare by Indian Charlie sire of Uncle Mo, Adios Charlie, Bwana Charlie, Liaison and Cinco Charlie.

Drain the Clock out of a mare by Arch (sire of Blame) from the Kris S. branch of the Roberto line. It could be worth crossing him back over other branches of that line, and we can note that there are also Distorted Humor line stakes winners out of mares by Dynaformer (sire of Temple City, Point of Entry and Purim) and Red Ransom and his son, Comic Strip.
