Sing n’ praise – the vintage bred pedigrees: a little nuggety 5 yo gelding Highly Decorated shows his ability to run from 1300m to 2050m and become people’s champ to the 2021 Great Northern Darwin Cup.
On topic, another to Danehill (3×4) yet Highly Decorated- his 7 straight wins shall explode theory n’ stat modelling of what is true breeding perfect?
As always ‘was’ – the mare’s genetics are the ‘Thing’, the consideration of what genetic layers as distaff, as built through.
The sleeping dragons Idomenoo (Alycidon) via distaff + Stratum/Luskin Star 6dx5d.
Star Kingdom 8Dx6Dx6D via Mighty Kingdom, Luskin Star, Canny Lad
The infinite, ineffable favourite to any pedigree anyplace, anytime: Djebel/Tourbillon where reproduced – Levandou (FR), Irish River, Never Bend, Targui.
What a mare to own.
Highly Decorated, to his sire Epaulette (AUS) by Commands.
Again the demo: – greatness is the genetic families come via the dam. Epaulette’s dam, a famous German family ‘rich’ to 2yo, 3yo German champion Anna Paola (GER).
Anna Paola – 5th dam of Godolphin’s Frankel 3yo colt and Epsom Derby winner Adayar (Frankel – Anna Salai).
