OK, we have seen the elite Sires, let’s now take a look at the next 33. Some very capable Stallions are in this bunch along with a few very exciting prospects. I am interested to see any change in the sire lines and type. I am sure we all shop keenly in this group, there is some great value to be had here IMO and won’t cost you the earth. There are also a few things we will touch on later.

Everyone should know by now my expertise lies in Australia and turf but the more research I do on the American dirt sires a few things began to come to light. I am an absolute fan of Distorted Humor and Unbridled’s Song but I was more than curious on the lack of their son’s success at stud. What I am seeing is maybe the answer. IMO they tend to throw to the feminine genotype. This may also be a key to their success as Dam Sires. Drosselmeyer I was keen on but seem’s he got his marching orders to Brazil and Arrogate may be UBS’s last chance. To me it looks like the A.P.Indy branch of the Nasrullah line is most likely to continue to thrive, Tapit being the obvious next big thing, I will watch with great interest if his son’s make a big impact. Everyone should now be starting to get a feel for the different sire lines. After many years experience when inspecting yearlings, I pretty much new what to expect with certain breeds, what I really enjoyed were some of the surprises.
Next issue we will cover the 2nd batch on the Dam Sire list. Until then good luck.

  1. question? the “type rating #” means or compares what?

    • It was a tool I used back in the day. Doesn’t mean a great deal when using only the best sires in the world, like we are comparing here. But is very useful when using sires that can be found on pages 2 -10 in the game. Hope this makes it a little clearer. Like I stated in article 1 or 2, say I was consulting for a breeder and he/she had a mare that was very plain, weak, bad legged or other inadequacies, I could match that mare to right stallion to improve or compliment the mating. Just part of the overall rating process I used. Other components were, pedigree, distance, budget, age, availability and so on. The key watch points were very important in many ways. One being, let’s say a stallion had certain leg faults, (back in the knee), I would try to steer clear of that type if the mare had similar faults. I would purposely try to match a stallion that was renowned for throwing sound legged horses. To me, it was all about maximizing your chances, Hope this makes sense Testbarn. I reckon you would really enjoy the Federico Tesio books (Breeding The Racehorse and In His Own Words)

      • Another couple of points. I also listed them in groups, Elite – bread and butter horses and at times the price didn’t matter. Redoute’s Choice was 1 I rated elite in his 1st season, he was a $40,000 fee when they were asking huge fees. A horse like Honor Code (current) I would risk him at the elite level. I also had them rated in price groups which helped when the breeder gave me a fixed budget.

  2. brilliant stuff thanks mate
