PICTURE THAT 6

Presented to you by Racing HQ

We will now take a look at the final group of Dam Sires in the top 100. Some fine Dam Sires are in this group at value prices capable of producing you a top line galloper. As we get down the list the percentages drop but with research and astute matings your chances will increase. Scratch breeding should be thought of with future breeding in mind when you use valuable sires and DDS. Most of my matings are formulated with this in mind, just something for you to think about. There are also a few things we will touch on later.

Well that concludes the top 100 2016 Dam Sires (Page 1), this is where careful planning is key, there are some very capable DS’s available here at great value well suited to get you a top horse. I will follow this up with a final group of breeding choices, Sires, DS and DDS, some I believe border on being elite sires and some undervalued and lightly used with great scope. I hope you enjoyed the series and learn’t something. One thing I believe stands out, the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer reeks of quality, don’t you think ???? It is no coincidence the Danzig line has been so successful. I can clearly remember seeing the 1st Danehill’s, stopped me in my tracks, same with the Redoute’s and Fastnet Rock’s. I would be tinkled pink if you got some success because of these articles, let me know my friends. I get just as much enjoyment helping others as my own success. Until next time, good luck and happy breeding.

  1. i am waiting and have marked the articles to my favorites. thanks buddy! just one stupid question? mr greely does not look right up front, is that my imagination? and the picture of “red ransom” is awesome.

    • You are right, in a purely symmetric sense he is too straight in the shoulder and the angles of his hind quarter are less than desirable. Remembering the type rating has nothing to do with the horses racing ability, just a tool to help improve the phenotype of the foal. Saying that, I firmly believe most breeders have $$$$$ as the prime motivator and choosing matings that are right, so to speak aren’t considered. This can have a bearing on soundness and ability, something to think about Test.

      • if i was breeding in real life, i would never breed to something like that. the babies are likely to have the same flaws. on here it is all about whatever #s mike has attached to a given sire and then you go into a lottery for a good one. the higher the #s the better the chance you have. but your articles are still fascinating and fun to compare the stallion to the foundation picture. it is no fluke that the good ones, closely resemble the line foundation sire.

  2. These articles are AMAZING!!! Great work Greg
