A year ago The Thoroughbred Link (TBL) blogged the post below on wonder mare and now super legend Winx. When a pedigree Winx Superior Thoroughbred
TBL made reference to her genetic phenomena, a likened to Sunline, Phar Lap, Secretariat. And, yes Carbine expresses it to.
TBL feels certain that there is a distinct possibility of the large-heart gene factor also transmitted (to Winx) due to a compacted order and synthesis of two strains – that of strains family 2 & 3.
TBL noticed a similar pattern working at hidden-depths of the above.
The maternal tap-root line of those superior individuals at 9th remove reveals compacting lines which ‘fuse’ and re-ignite when 1 or more of strains are nicked, as occurring through the stallion.
The prime index factor is undoubtedly Alamahoud, ancestress Mother Goose & 2-d strain; the dam line producing Machiavllian (USA) , Northern Dancer and Halo (USA), read as 6sx6sx9Dx6d.
Further more, the 2-d strain (differing but same seed) through Hurry on 9Dx9D.
TBL observed Sunline’s maternal tap-root merged on 2-d strains through sires Hurry On (GB) & Nothing Venture (GB) and the 2 inbred strains of Polymelus 3-e, sire of great racemare Cinna, co-relationship John O’ Gaunt 3-e and also Colorado 3-l.
Secretariat (2-s) and many cohesive 2 strains (again, maternal tap root) particularly through the 2-o strain an those of 3-e (Polymeus) and 3-i via Galopin and Brown Prince.
Phar Lap (2-r) where the family strain branched from 2-n, also compacted upon same.The 3 strain is pointedly via Flying Dutchman 3-i and global ancestress matriarch Pocahontas 3-m.
Winx – referencing 2-D strains of Almahound, the resemblance (as family strains) emerges through 4th maternal dam, Vegas Street (NZ) to her siring strains those of Sovereign Path via Bobsleigh(GB) 3-l and Winalot (GB) 3-i AND 9th dam, Silverado (GB) 3-i & Nassau (GB) 3-l.
As TBL has ‘championed’ through other articles, it is not the individuals, but what they carry within as determination. see Smokin’ over a pedigree…
We are not talking horse a, horse b, horse c as separate or individual influences. We are looking for the firm genetic ties to accumulate upon ‘truer’ family blood at origination-point.
Winx’s sire – Street Cry’s broodmare sire Troy carries the particular strain 3-i. The broodmare carries a strain of 3-e (Palestine GB) .
And of course through Street Cry there is Nashua 3-m ….relating to the foundational Byerley Turk.
