"He's very much in the image of his sire – a powerful, correct horse and the only son of High Chaparral to have won a Group One two year old race,” - Brent Gillovic

"High Chaparral has enjoyed success when bred over certain branches of the Northern Dancer line. Wrote is out of a mare from the Danzig line through Green Desert, but should cross well over mares from other branches of that line, including Danehill. Both Danehill and his son Danehill Dancer are broodmare sires of stakes winners by High Chaparral," - Alan Porter, Pedigree expert
