“Nostalgic praise for the good old days is a Plant that knows no boundaries of time or space, and so it is not surprising that should also blossom on the racetracks, and even in the sheltered hot-houses of science”. Tesio
Nearco, Northern Dancer, Native Dancer the standard line-bred intensification to 2 year old precocious speed development keeps proliferating.
Of tipping points there has consequence to racing thoroughbreds – an imbalance to genetic introgression pools.
The one-line direction is not sustainable.
Nostalgic written, the celebrations and those eulogies based to stallions akinDjebel, Forli, Hyperion,Hurry On, are those fated lines. The strong pillars of ‘yesteryear’ come sparse, but for where also best qualityrests. Today’s distributions carried by daughter descendants and producers.
The noble identities 'existed as residual modes of the Thoroughbred, ecologically valuable and necessary to maintain the very survival of the central aptitude'. (reference, Typology of the Racehorse - Varola).
How to renew & make lasting diversity is the necessary challenge & tomorrow’s frontier.
Where noble ‘Frames’ continue not, the solutions are somewhat, settled by a vacuous path. Race programmes may soften, shorten. By degrees.. a weaker predicament further damaging innate integrity where a greater doctrine to breeding/racing intersects.
Federico Tesio points his finger & with an iron jaw states: “the true measure of progress is directed only toward the well-being of the individual and the preservation of the spies’.
True breeding progression is of genetic giants. It is placing their vigour back, as the construct to breeding. This parallels alongside the nature of selection.
The reproductive power, contrary to what some novice breeders imagine, come from an extremely slow process of purification, only achieved with time, patience, obstinacy, and firmness of concepts.*
The selection must be uniform and constant.*
The selector must keep in mind that competence shapes the forms (morphological).*
To example the stern principle – the rigorous applies to South America’s Argentina, Uruguay and the top quality Brazil bred virtues. It is beautiful, brutal, tough, sensible methodology, the venerated puro sangue ingles ‘blood’ beneath.

T.H. Approval -‘Y’ line to Caro (IRE) locks in progenitors: – Relic (War Relic, Man O War), Precipitation (Hurry On, Marcovil), Solario (Gainsborough, Sundridge) & Nasrullah.
They are ‘at best’, the formula and breeding discipline.
Our conventional belief’s radically shatter: Eduardo broken in, into training late as a 3 year old. Then took his racing to a 3rd place (equal with Nature Strip (AUS)) on Longines 121 points behind Mishriff (IRE) and Mystic Guide (USA)
One for the books, one for luck ?
No, not a flash in the pan. The boutique breeder and owner J. Kaufmann may be Australia’s wizard. Her simple appreciation, simple Likes and preferences are… nous breeding is tacitly refined.
Not always in-breeding, nor line-bred multiples …this is nature’s trick for mit DNA clustering on a pin-hole.
Stop the ‘1+1 theorem’ – the nucleus frame is not there. The pedigree has to be sieved to discover jig-saw across, tapestry of relationship.
The robust sire Host (CHI) was Chile’s champion at 2 & 3 years and Horse of the Year.
Nasrullah’s pedigree – his 2nd dam sire The Tetrarch designated female family 2o and the crown, known as racehorse nucleus speed family Mumtaz Begum/Mumtaz Mahal/Lady Josephine, to the family 9c.
rememberingFair Trial is the close genetic cousin. Tudor Minstrel is a genetic & distant cousin. Again, family 9c. Further noted… Aslam (FR) , Host’s 3rd dam sire is of ‘Mumtaz Begum’ family 9c.
The wider onomatopoeia relationships to the family 2o resonates by Biscay, The Tetrarch, Questionnaire, Peter Pan are all in the affinity, a genetic corridor to ancestress Marbile by Parmesan.
– Marbile’s grand-daughter notably, is Briar-Root by Springfield (his daughter and dam of Sundridge and Springfield is sire of Sainfoin). Marbile’s grand-daughter Cinderella (Hermit) producer of Peter Pan (USA) by Commando.
the Wizard of Dormello states “same element of harmonic vibration which determines the almost, constant success of two given strains in the race-horse” ++++ “in nature the small gives way to the large” Tesio
The inherited characters of hybrids are passed on according to the laws of inheritance, but only those which are the result of selection will reappear as selected characters in the offspring. Breeding the Racehorse/Tesio

“You never radically modify a breed in terms of weight and size without loss in other factors, acting in this way you throw the child out with the bath water. Our selection is slower, more traditional, but without losing the qualities that made it successful.” Gilberto Junqueira
Elysian Fields that we compete to, cometh the Holy-Grail genome; a pedigree has obstinate fact that breeding has skills of moral quality.
The science progresses – 1) mutation Whalebone monopolizes a greater population 2) other TB progenitors supplicate 3) Darley Arabian, Bylerley Turk and Godolphin Arabian are Turkomene, the stamina/stayer TT allelle.
The isolation to genome-maps, Tb-dW mutation Whalebone responsible to the English Thoroughbred, perhaps (?) might enshrine ‘W’ above all other characteristics.
– a solitary haplotype overall, is not a single solution.
The complex well – unknown sires and remote mares; never (hopefully) considered lesser contributory character.
In collateral lines Joseph Osborne in 1881 counted no less than 475 stallions with their names in the Stud-Book – all of them Arabians, Barbs or Turks imported chiefly during the reign of James I and Queen Anne (16 – 17th C) – Tesio, Breeding the Racehorse
Types conduce autogenous strains. Consideration is a ‘Type’ (speed or distance sire) across another genotype, to set-forth again another Type, and arrive (at best) optimal functionality.
The Type sits to Integrity & Selection.
The substructure beneath… balance & ‘counterbalance’ is always the adaptation (function & purpose).
Tesio (Breeding the Racehorse), to his thinking… “to produce a great horse one must be able to find among his first 62 ancestors individuals which showed classic quality over 1 mile, 11/4mile, 11/2 miles and 2 miles. Without a representative of the 1 mile race in his pedigree it will be difficult to produce a horse of outstanding quality, because he will be incapable of those bursts of nervous energy which are synonymous with speed”
Tesio further notes – short distances went for 2nd and 3rd rate horses.
His, the undeniable objective … produce a horse of outstanding quality.
By market stimulus…the model of today’s contemporary breeding, for racing product, has peaked to nucleus speed.
To pendulum furthest , a collective mainstream breeding & racing, are albeit, speed systems. The other hand amiss. Stamina-stayer re: constitutional toughnessexists to structure, support mechanism.
Tesio states 1) Without the machine breaking down 2) selected for their ability, 3) to withstand the terrificimpact of speed” – Tesio Breeding the Racehorse.
Tesio clearly recognized the 3 issues above. Welfare and quality are issues we face today.
It is never one solution, neither to coral speed by sequential C:C gene.
Acquiring ‘supreme’ dominant hereditary Factors are not purely affixing speed in-bred, but a thorough balance, elevated to another – a pre-potent cross-character.
The finding – ‘a’ dominant allele (if inherited, correctly) has a relentless character. It is generally explanative transposing genetics. to arrive the specie with its corrective function.
A cross-character, type-vigour is highly aggressive, if/when expressed or introduced Intentionally.

“Oh for days when a top Thoroughbred was sound enough to run 66 races!”
Never synthetic bred, Princequillo the breeding bull of Tough stock; the improver and upgrader of thoroughbred quality. A 6 furlong winner, he went by staying blood.
Respect Princequillo – he produced sound healthy foals. The great sire had the jacket, the cloth and label – ‘Mr Fixit’
Bull Hancock 1) “you like to drill where oil has been found. Nick may be a bad word, but it gives you an outcross in which some things in the stallion compensate for their absence in the mare. Nasrullah was a very fiery horse; Round Table was rather phlegmatic, RoundTable was not too big; Nasrullah mares are big and rangy”
2) “racing needs that kind instead of the fly-by-nights who come in for 2,3 years and then get out when they don’t like it, or when they have no success ” *
