Sprinter-miler LEWIS MICHAEL has a chance to extend the sire line of Blushing Groom. A tough, sound multiple Grade 2 winner, he exhibited brilliant speed, like his champion full sister, Dreaming of Anna.

Their ancestry is loaded with maternal strength. Rahy is out of Glorious Song (by Halo), and Rahy consistently succeeded with Northern Dancer, duplicating Almahmoud. While Halo is out of a half-sister to Northern Dancer’s dam, LEWIS MICHAEL carries no Northern Dancer; herein lies a wonderful opportunity–book mares with Northern Dancer (especially Nureyev and Storm Cat). Turn-to, Mr. Prospector, Seattle Slew and other Nasrullah strains should also be considered.
