Lather Up, the equal fastest harness racing horse of all-time and a member of the dominant Cam Fella sire line from a maternal family bereft of the blood of Western Hanover, Abercrombie and co, provides broodmare owners with a number of options for their matrons.

The brilliant, young stallion – he was foaled in 2015 - is bred on the Bettor’s Delight over Christian Cullen / In The Pocket cross, one of the golden crosses of Australasian racing today. No fewer than five million dollar earners have emanated from this cross, as depicted in Table A.

As an extension to this theory, Lather Up, though twice removed from Bettor’s Delight, should nick particularly well with the daughters of the numerous Direct Scooter line stallions in the southern hemisphere.  They include In The Pocket, Christian Cullen, Courage Under Fire, Mach Three, Somebeachsomewhere, Extreme Three, Royal Mattjesty, Changeover, Tinted Cloud, Rob Roy Mattgregor and others.

However, as Table B shows, Bettor’s Delight is nicking even more successfully with mares from a wide variety of other sire lines. Bettor’s Delight has produced million dollar winners from daughters of Artsplace, Albatross, Cam Fella, Jate Lobell, Beach Towel and Most Happy Fella sons, grandsons and great grandsons.

As Table B exemplifies, Lather Up should prove a suitable match for all mares by Artsplace, Western Hanover, Albatross, Cam Fella sire line stallions and others. These include daughters of Art Major, Perfect Art, Albert Albert, Grinfromeartoear, Sportswriter, Artiscape, Dream Away, Modern Art, Astreos, Badlands Hanover, Western Terror, American Ideal, Ponder, Jereme’s Jet, Holmes Hanover, Torado Hanover, Tompkins Hanover, Fake Left, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball and Pacific Fella.
