elsewhere – discussions come n’ go re: selections to using fresh-man sires.
What goes??? the performance, the quality of the racing individual, or other testimony to breeding capability as sire?
What gives way is the genetic makeup & how it may carry through.
Naturally the mare is other half of the equation.
Utilizing inbreeding, linebreeding relativity is also reviewing what stamping type model shall progress ‘character’ further.
Today’s example to the Unbeaten winner of 5 starts, gelded Hong Kong sprinter Courier Wonder (NZ) – a NZ Bloodstock yearling purchase by John Foote Bloodstock $150,000
By deceased sire Sacred Falls (NZ) – a 3×5 Centaine (Century) template (noting ‘perfect’ female carrier position), let’s reconcile why dominant characters govern. This is the destiny of genetics.
What choice to? What trait ideal ‘selecting’ ? -the complete complexity of all those furthest individuals raining down through pedigree.
Courier Wonder thru haplotype (ie. female family 14c collective) could represent foundational homozygous fashion.
For mine its trotting out via My Babu (Djebel) carried thru female carriage consistent. ie 6th dam grand-sire My Babu.
Centaine/Century/Better boy/ My Babu
Savannah Success from female distaff My Babu
Sir Tristram, granddam All my Eye by My Babu
Iguazu 3×3 Century et al
– to push validation – the My Babu (Djebel dynasty via Djeddeh daughter Lalun ie Never Bend/Miss Reef) all shall come into sharp focus.
The other and never of any less… Star Kingdom line through Bletchingly/ Todman and Canny Lad.
Once again (in this case) it is not planning the pedigree, but where-to Identification; what Type may be representative ‘true’ of such mating.
Courier Wonder (NZ) has full sister Icebath (NZ) she 20 starts for 3 wins.
