Strains & maternal families

Through an examination of the best racehorses, it is evident the superior individual has irreplaceable ancestry.

The relevance of female family numbers so ‘useful’ to analysing pedigrees of the modern thoroughbred has declined.

We say, the genotype pedigree is very much like a map. Whilst vastly detailed, it is determined by the intricacies of inter-relationship families and where strains infuse.

“Successful bred horses may tend to be explained via maternal configuration of specific complementary ‘strains’. Acting as definitive markers it aids to magnify the unobvious link to superior breeding.” –  TBL

It is a most exciting approach to achieve a champion racehorse.
