Luftikus’s runners have speed, stamina, and are as hickory as the day is long in soundness. A common theme among many of Luftikus’s best runners are laced with Tourbillon and La Troienne, as well as doubles of Prince John. Prince John and Mr. Prospector both have sisters to Domino, an endemic contributor to the American Thoroughbred gene pool.
Sources of Buckpasser, Nijinski II, and Roberto are all prime. Daughters of Malibu Moon, Pulpit, Tapit, Ice Box, and other lines of A.P. Indy should also work well here, given their crosses of Nijinski and Mr. Prospector. Any returns of Nashua, La Troienne, Tourbillon, and Olympia never hurt any mating, but don’t take my word for it… just ask American Pharoah and California Chrome, who are both laced with Olympia and Tourbillon.
These are just a few of the most potent options to consider when planning matings for your mares with Luftikus!
