All the Breeders Classics

One of the more popular America sires of the day KC And All, had a great stake season with his offspring in Iowa, this autumn.

A relative newcomer to the US stud ranks, he saw two of his pups capture Iowa Breeders Cups at Bluffs Run and Dubuque in late October, early November. Hilco Klassy took home the $500,000 Bluffs Run Iowa Bred championship (the sport’s biggest money-earning event of the year), while Pat C Sabbath nabbed Dubuque’s $200,000 Iowa Bred Cup a week earlier.

Bred by Alan Hill, of Radcliffe, Ia., Hilco Klassy is a May 2012 daughter of KC And All-Primco Kapow, owned by Hill and Jeff Cole of Abilene, Ks., racing for the Bean & Stout Kennel at Bluffs. Her win was another feather in the cap of both parents, who were ranked in the Top 10 of the last sire and dam standings.

KC And All is one of the more recent sons of Gable Dodge who are dominating the upper division of the sire list. Kelsos Fusileer and former sire champ Lonesome Cry are also in the Top 10—joined by a Dodge grandson, BD’s Grayson, who is now No. 2.

A former Bluffs Run great himself, KC And All is out of KC Did It Best, who is linebred to the great Onie Jones bitch P’s Skelly. She was the mother of P’s Rambling (sire of KC Black Widow in this pedigree) as well as the maternal granddam to P’s Raising Cain, who sired All Star. Even more dominant is the Dutch Bahama linebreeding, showing up in both KC And All’s parents, just two generations back.

Not to be overlooked is the contribution of Hilco Klassy’s mother, Primco Kapow, whose feats go beyond her Iowa-bred champion daughter. Klassy’s littermate, Hilco KC Kidd, captured the Bluffs Run Juvenile in June, then ran second (dead heat) in the Bluffs Run Open in August. It’s doubtful that any litter ran out more money than this one did in 2015.

Moreover, from a litter by Kelsos Fusileer whelped 8 months after the KC And All, Primco Kapow produced Hilco Kelsoleer, winner of the Dubuque $5,000 Future Star in September.

Primco Kapow is a daughter of none other than—ta dah!—Kiowa Sweet Trey, out of Prima Honey Bee. The latter goes back to even more Dutch Bahama (via Flying Diamond) and Onie Jones (behind Sweet Deal). Five Friend Westy-Miss Gorgeous entries lurk in the distant linebreeding, along with four entries of Downing. Just those two families alone contribute nine entries of both Hall Of Famers Tell You Why* and Kinto Nebo.

The other KC And All pup to win an Iowa Bred classic recently was Pat C Sabbath, bred by Melissa Schmidt of Bellevue, Ia., and now owned and raced by Schmidt and Pat Collins, of Colorado. The Dubuque champ is a January 2012 brindle male out of KC And All and Operation Scorch—an Oshkosh Slammer daughter out of Trish Stratus. As with Hilco Klassy, Pat C Sabbath gets an extra entry of the already-doubled up Dutch Bahama, via his damline through Greys Fostoria. The Bahama dam that produced Fostoria is none other than the regal Hall Of Famer Representation (when bred to K’s Flak…a son of Onie, whose name keeps popping up in connection with these same lines). Not to be overlooked is the Molotov appearance in Scorch’s second generation.

Oshkosh Slammer, Operation Scorch’s sire, gives Pat C Sabbath his second entry of Oshkosh Racey stock (since Racey also sired the mother of Cee Bar Star, behind KC And All). Farther back, resides six entries of Downing (two of those through Perceive), tons of Jones blood (especially Onie) and three entries of Friend Westy-Miss Gorgeous.
