BRILLIANT SPEED has a unique pedigree pattern and comes from an exceptional female line. His pedigree shows 4 x 5 duplication of champion NASHUA (one of the soundest horses in the Stud Book), a mix of Hail to Reason with Mr. Prospector (a mix that produced Zenyatta, Distorted Humor, Machiavellian, More Than Ready, etc.), and one discovers every sire on Brilliant Speed’s damline is both an influential sire and broodmare sire. Fortunately BRILLIANT SPEED suits mares possessing Northern Dancer’s strain (especially Danzig) and I suspect he might nick with Seattle Slew’s descendants (especially via A. P. Indy) since Handpainted and Serenading represent this mix. Further, mares by El Prado, Quiet American, Unbridled, Meadowlake, and Wavering Monarch, might also be clever test matings.
