I had a lot of Croziers that ran good. Fred Hooper
Industry people…. how do you recognise a perfect pedigree?
– 2 Keeneland’s yearling sale & spot the boy, $2.2 million Godolphin purchased yearling colt – American Pharoah/ Kindle by Indian Charlie.
The genotype maps phenotype faultless.
– yep, the perfection.
We say it over and over again, its about maternal families sitting upon those genotype dynamics – pinpoint where pedigrees will distinctively fuse.
Female families are pattern-collectives; they hold appreciation to the greater pedigree template & as to what actually hits the ‘mark’.
Few years back we blogged American Pharoah pows a ‘Grand Slam’ to sight the gold: Olympia (USA).
The article went short on other genetic contributors but nevertheless here, the A.P colt blends key parentage through maternal lines with ‘exactness’.
Down to business end.
Take note…..Olympia (USA) 7sx7sx8sx7Dx9d thru Little Blessing (USA), Tri-Jet(USA), 2xCrozier (USA), Greek Game (USA), Crème Dela Crème (USA). (yes, these key genetic role-players DO NOT APPEAR on a regular catalogue print out…you need to get into detail & depths of pedigree.)
Next: Pioneer of the Nile (AP’s sire), the maternal line ff-21a, where his sire Empire Maker grand dam’s sire, In Reality (USA) has ff-21a to Indian Charlie (USA), ff-21a, the sire of dam Kindle …..ALL from ancestress ‘Lonely’ (GB). This detailed information needs to be viewed @ 5th remove. Notice the in-breeding Olympia (USA) through AP’s dam, Littleprincessemma (USA) to colt’s dams sire – Indian Charlie.
++++plus….. Pioneer of the Nile 4th dam sire (ff 21-a) sire Olympia (USA).
Collectively complete, that’s how it works.
Olympia had the blazing speed that American breeders respond to. Legends of the Turf, Edward L. Bowen.
