Pedigree analysis discovers the truer nature -of-genetic patterns: strains and traits within.

It is a Aficionados passion where/how/why pedigrees are the family bloodlines returning through their descendants.

 Knowledge folks, now that’s ya’ horse.  explaining how resourceful genotype via family tables bring us powerful pedigrees like Enable (GB) –  (Nathaniel (IRE) x. Concentric (GB) + 2017 Cartier European Horse of the Year & European 3 yr old  filly. *Her latest American 2018 victory,   Breeders Cup Turf win.


Enthusiasts will note the close (3s x 2d) breeding to Sadlers Wells (USA) – a dynastic gene empire all on its own. Sadlers Wells, the female family 5-h.

Other noted strains infused to Sadlers Wells, re: blue-hen Lalun (USA) the female family 19-b. She produced Bold Reason (USA) and Never Turn (USA) , sire of Mill Reef, sire of Shirley Heights (GB), the grand-dam sire of Enable. Thus Lalun 5sx5Dx6D

time period 1951 – 1997 : if my assumption is right, that during the last seventy years breeders have not made much use of intensive inbreeding, then I think it is really remarkable what great horses have been produced in the last seventy years by this method. Barcaldine, Flying Fox, Ksar, Havresac II, at once spring to mind, all racehorses of the very highest class- all stallions who have left an indelible impression on modern pedigrees, all in-bred in the second and third generation. Surely it is worth trying this intense inbreeding more frequently, providing the breeder is prepared to confine his inbreeding to the very greatest names, and nothing else will do, he stands a far better chance of producing good racehorses than by confining his methods solely to outcrossing, although it is quite understandable that breeders for sale will be reluctant to accept the risks involved. – Nesbit Waddington, text quoted from Inbreeding to Superior females by Rommy Faversham & Leon Rasmussen

The study to ancestry covering evolutionary phases, helps to ‘organize’ or ‘arrange’ an appreciation of co-affiliation branches.

Thus, Enable reflects a  ‘patterned’ pedigree that infuses the genetic pathway passage to strike, as applied with female-family tables, pedigree is ‘visible’.

This application demonstrates a strong familiar pattern and type formulation which TBL  noted many a time and as noted to the European breeding operations through history.

Key strains, key families, key genus roots-at-origins…the female family #9:#4 maternal affiliation. Like building-blocks, the ff#9:#4 are keys, are strains factoring. They ‘remember’ the familial evolutionary relationship – if one cares to trace the foundations. (see below)

Utilizing maternal foundations capitalizes on the  xx inheritances where we begin to source natural evolvement. A core fundamental to understand someway, how the thoroughbred ecology has transpired.

Returning to the subject – Enable, it is helpful  to view upon 5th remove and beyond.

Enable – the female #4m family.

We have prior noted, where communal #4 branches concentrate the XX origins, mitochondrial DNA.

Such application sources the composite in cohesive degrees. Thus, the origins emerge.

This is the eternal co-affiliation. Note.
