View Full Version : Pedigree help!!

Jan. 6, 2012, 06:58 PM
I'm going to look at King Of Lords tomorrow, instead of Monday. Worked out better because his actual trainer will be there, and that's essential. I don't have a lot of information on him, the lady is not a talker. This totally concerns me, but I did look on all the Canter listings and she talks the exact same on all the other listings. *sigh*

Anyways, I'll find everything out tomorrow. So, does anyone have any questions to ask, and red flags to look out for?

Also, can SOMEONE PLEASE help me with his pedigree. I google all the horses on his pedigree but don't really find anything? What exactly am I looking for? (haha) I'm a noob.

This is my other OTTB's (Murphy's) pedigree.. can anyone tell me anything about it? (If you want, the other is more important.)

He's one of those who could be excellent and could be a dud, based on his paper. He's got some nice sport lines back in his pedigree.

Just look at the horse in front of you and how he moves and reacts to you and things in his environment. That's far more important for anything already on the ground. especially if you aren't aiming for the very top of the sport.

Thank you Vineyridge! :)
Unfortunately I have no idea how to make heads or tails of those papers, LOL.

Hopefully things go well tomorrow. *Fingers crossed*
