Elitlopp winner 2005:Steinlager by Good as Gold out of Keystone Jazzy, by Mac Breton!
It would be easy to reject this pedigree as odd and weak but nothing could be further from the truth. Good as Gold has started his career at stud very promising. From about 100 foals three years and older, he has also produced Good as Dollar 1:59.3 1,184,417 SEK, the fast mare Elma Gold 1:56 831,750 SEK, Danish Derby winner Filled Gold 1:58.3 763 572 SEK and Egon Brew 1:58.2 742,000 SEK, 12 wins in 25 starts. Good as Gold is the first Swedish-bred stallion to sire an Elitlopp winner.
Keystone Jazzy made two lifetime starts with no success but has produced much better. All foals until 1999 are winners. Second foal R.J.H.Blazing 1:57.1 773,500 SEK was Swedish champion and sixth foal Ixxus 2:00.3v 303,100 SEK is one of the best offspring by Prince Mystic. Steinlager is the 7th foal.
Sire of dam Mac Breton was extremely well-bred (Speedy Scot - Fresh Yankee), but he was not a great trotter and did not produce much at stud. His best performer should be World Champion Sweet Michelle 1:56 214 139 USD, who is also the dam of the 2004 top 3yo American Mike 1:57.3 425,165 USD.
Keystone Jazzy is half sister to Lassie Blue Chip, dam of the Winky's Gill 1:55.2 472,154 USD (dam of Supergill) and Laddie Blue Chip (sire of Norwegian star Blue Fighter 1:54.1 4,090,000 NOK). Third dam is the legendary Lady Ann Reed, founder of one of the greatest maternal families in the world of trotting.
Steinlager was scouted as a yearling by conformation expert Jörgen Westholm. To most people Steinlager was a heavy and not too beautiful colt, but Mr. Westholm measured his angles and liked what he saw. He purchased Steinlager along with the other Good as Golds Good as Dollar (see above) and Herokusen 2:01.4v 314,409 SEK in a low-priced package. Then Steinlager was sold forward to Norway as a 2yo and the rest is history.
