Intentionally, Fourth Generation

Intentionally was the champion sprinter of 1959 on the Daily Racing Form poll. As such he should have been the subject of a Charles Hatton profile in the 1960 American Racing Manual. Not there. Do not know why. That is the bad news. The good news is that I recently copied Hatton’s profile of In Reality, far and away the best son of Intentionally, from the 1969 American Racing Manual and will be reproducing that sometime before the end of the year.

So let us now examine Intentionally as a name in more current pedigrees, specifically in the fourth generation of all weanlings, yearlings, or two-year-olds sold at public auction in North America in 1999-2002.

Intentionally showed 5,027 times in the fourth generation of these 54,000+ foals, ranking him 12th in overall popularity.

At P1 in the fourth generation (the male line) Intentionally had a Price Index of 0.86 (tenth among these 20 sires) and a PPI (result) of 1.07 (also tenth), a  pretty good improvement in absolute terms. He had 1,331 foals at P1, including 62 stakes winners (4.66%), including Saratoga County (2,747 Performance Points). Saratoga County was by Valid Expectations, by Valid Appeal, by the aforementioned In Reality.

At P2 in the fourth generation Intentionally had a Price Index of 1.52 (third) and a PPI (result) of 0.99 (11th), a lack of improvement on both scores. He had 239 foals at P2, including nine stakes winners (3.77%), but none with 2,000+ Performance Points.

At P3 in the fourth generation Intentionally had a Price Index of 0.97 (sixth) and a PPI (result) of 1.09 (fifth), a slight improvement on both scores. He had 1,081 foals at P3, including 45 stakes winners (4.16%), including Crafty Shaw (2,446), Lion Tamer (2,401), and Champali (2,274).

Crafty Shaw was by Crafty Prospector (Mr. Prospector out of an In Reality mare). Champali was by Glitterman (Dewan out of an In Reality mare). Lion Tamer was by Will’s Way (Easy Goer out of Willamae, by Tentam, by Intentionally).

At P4 in the fourth generation Intentionally had a Price Index of 0.32 (20th) and a PPI (result) of 0.25 (18th), a mixed result. He had 105 foals at P4, including two stakes winners (1.90%), neither with 2,000+ Performance Points.

At P5 in the fourth generation Intentionally had a Price Index of 0.99 (eighth) and a PPI (result) of 1.01 (tenth), another mixed result. He had 1,493 foals at P5, including 61 stakes winners (4.09%), including Stellar Jayne (3,435), Starrer (2,843), City Zip (2,718), Randaroo (2,173), and Trippi (2,066).

Stellar Jayne and Starrer were half-sisters out of To the Hunt, by Relaunch, by In Reality. City Zip was also out of a Relaunch mare. Randaroo and Trippi were out of mares by Valid Appeal, by In Reality.

At P6 in the fourth generation Intentionally had a Price Index of 0.84 (13th) and a PPI (result) of 1.54 (fourth), an excellent improvement on both scores. He had 186 foals at P6, including 13 stakes winners (6.99%), but none with 2,000+ Performance Points.

At P7 in the fourth generation Intentionally had a Price Index of 1.17 (fourth) and a PPI (result) of 1.90 (first), an excellent improvement on both scores. He had 506 foals at P7, including 34 stakes winners (6.72%), including Ten Most Wanted (2,918). The second dam of Ten Most Wanted was Landera, by In Reality.

At P8 in the fourth generation Intentionally had a Price Index of 0.96 (19th) and a PPI (result) of 0.31 (20th), pretty disappointing in absolute terms. He had 86 foals at P8, including two stakes winners (2.33%), but none with 2,000+ Performance Points.

Overall, counting all eight positions in the fourth generation, Intentionally had a Price Index of 0.97 (12th) and a PPI (result) of 1.12 (sixth), a pretty good improvement on both scores. He had 5,027 foals overall, including 228 stakes winners (4.54%).

Only about 12% (616) of those 5,027 foals involved daughters of Intentionally in the third generation. Those 616 foals had a Price Index of 1.03 and a PPI (result) of 0.94. The remaining 4,411 foals involved sons of Intentionally in the third generation. Those 4,411 foals had a Price Index of 0.97 and a PPI (result) of 1.15. So the fillies were a little bit more expensive than the colts but not as successful while the colts were cheaper than the fillies but more successful.

Almost 77% (3,857) of these 5,027 foals involved In Reality in the third generation. Those 3,857 foals had a Price Index of 0.97 and a PPI (result) of 1.11. The remaining 1,170 foals had a Price Index of 1.00 and a PPI (result) of 1.19. Not much of a difference on either score, but the latter (NOT In Realitys) actually were a little less cheap and a little more successful than the former.

To recapitulate, Intentionally is pretty simple. Almost 77% in Intentionally in the fourth generation is In Reality in the third generation. Nine out of the ten stakes winners with 2,000+ Performance Points were In Reality in the third generation (Lion Tamer was the only one who was not). The Intentionallys in the fourth generation which are NOT In Reality in the third generation are not bad (nor particularly good) either.
