ICE BOX is 4x5 to Secretariat and 4x5 to Raise a Native. Further back we see a concentration of Princequillo, Bold Ruler, Nasrullah, Native Dancer and Polynesian. Perhaps stamina from Princequillo’s sons (Round Table, Prince John) and daughters (Monarchy, Key Bridge and Somethingroyal) played a major role in his runner-up finish in the Kentucky Derby, linked with speed from Bold Ruler and his sire Nasrullah. Damsire of ICE BOX is Storm Cat son Tabasco Cat and linebred to Polynesian and Princequillo. Lines that particularly suit ICE BOX are those with a son of Mr. Prospector (Seeking the Gold, Miswaki, Woodman) or a source of Unbridled, Damascus, Hail to Reason, Holy Bull and Northern Dancer, especially Danzig, Nureyev and Nijinsky II.
