Experimentation Into Canadian Freshmen Sires
For all the Canadian trainers out there, this article is for you. I am coming back off a year long break from the game, and to spice up my rebirth, will only be racing at the BC and Ontario tracks. As well, I am looking to make my barns more 'Canadian' through breeding. This will be the start of me looking into the Canadian Sires and making some experimental breedings. These will all be cheap breedings until sires are seen to be successful.
I am not going to lie, I am not a breeding guru, so take any breeding advice with that in mind. However, I am willing to put some connections together through the lines in the sires background and hope for success. Hopefully some of my experiences will inspire some of you readers to breed your own Canadian horses, and bring them the respect they deserve.
In this article I will name the Canadian Freshmen sires who I will be experimenting with. Future articles in this series will include information on the breeding I have done, and the success (and failures) of these breedings. Hopefully through the process a few hidden gems may be turned up.
Over the next month I will research and make 1-2 breedings for each of these sires, and will then keep periodical updates on how they are turning out. This will culminate in my suggesting 2-3 sires as the cream of the crop for Canadian sires this season.
