TBL Purpose

It is widely accepted where Northern Dancer across Mr Prospector sire line, wrote itself as the global domineering cross.

Successful nick ‘lines’ breed on with co-affinity.

Commercial type breeding (for profit and investment) has introduced many appealing stallions.

Yet, from the old dominant ‘blood(s)’, the idea to breeding has morphed into siring and racing performance alone. Whilst the modern ‘benchmark’ is generally accepted, it can overlook great potential, the latency within the broodmare.
