    Default TB Hunter Sires (list)

    I did this for 2005 and got "mixed" reviews, but it's interesting to me so I figured I'd share the stats from the 2006 leading hunter sires (USEF) for THOROUGHBREDS (full xx).

    Top 10:
    1. Fly So Free
    2. Unfold
    3. Another Reef
    4. Absolut
    5. Academy Award
    6. In Case
    7. Highland Blade
    8. Northern Raja
    9. Radishes and Mint
    10. Mytens

    The leading sire (of the sires) is as follows:
    1. Mr. Prospector
    2. Raja Baba
    3. TIED: Raise a Native; Secretariat
    4. TIED: Damascus; Northern Dancer; Raise a Cup

    The leading dam sire (of the sires) is as follows:
    1. Buckpasser
    2. Never Bend
    3. TIED: Northern Dancer; In Reality
    4. TIED: Hoist the Flag; Court Martial; Bold Ruler

    I love me some Buckpasser.

    My mare is a Raja Baba granddaughter...and I'm still learning a lot about TB (sport horse) pedigrees...so I found it very interesting. Thanks!

    Fenway - well said - even though he is a bit far back now, Buckpasser is always a good thing. As is Turn-To! IMHO.

    I love those good TB lines!! Unfortunately, I live in Colorado and horse racing/breeding is minimal at best. To get a good TB mare you have to go out of state. Fortunately, I was able to pick mine up a Fasig Tipton sale in California. Drum Fire and Turn To on the top and To Market on the bottom)

    I remember many years ago going to a WB inpection (I am talking at least 20 years) anyway they did a confirmation clinic with it. Well the TB mares were less than wonderful that were the ginny pigs. (At least I never would have bred any of them--pretty low level local stuff) anyway, the inspector was going on and on about the "poor quality of TB's"--and after I had about enought I raised my hand and said "Have you been to Kentucky?? The really good TB mares are in broodmare bands - not hanging out in Colorado!!!)

    Fortunately, the level of mares has gone up over the years!!

    The stallion Academy Award is of interest to me - do you know the offspring showing? Also the showing offspring of a Raise A Native son. That line is pretty old. Any one know any chasing or eventing offspring of a Virginia Based stallion Run Softly? I think he is dead now.

    Dinah-do - saw your post about Run Softly. I thought he was standing in WVA - did he die recently? He is my mare's sire - she will soon be re-homed on a farm as a brood mare for timber racers.

    Yes someone surfaced! I have a 3/4 bred TB filly by Classic Man who is by Run Softly. I "like " pedigrees and was hoping to learn a bit about the stallion.

    I can't say I know much, except that he sired my mare. I researched a bit a while back and traced him to Naylee Farm in West Virginia, but I just looked at the website and he has progeny there, but he's no longer listed so perhaps he died. Here is my mare's pedigree

    I have one Hoist the Flag, one Bold Ruler and two Hail The Pirates mares. Hail The Pirates is the damsire of at least two of the leading hunter sires on the list so he probably is not too much farther down the list as well! Roberto and To Market would also be a couple perenial favorites of mine.

    what about Riverman lines?

    And Northern Dancer?

    And some French bloodlines like Sicambre...

    I thought you needed some more the type of a stayer rather than sprinters... More the steeple-chase-like horse.

    I would like to know some more about the pedigree of my 2 mares and their 'suitability' for the sport. I'm into eventing with both of them...

    What are the things you look for in the morphology of a thoroughbred stallion for breeding sporthorses?

    Default New Question, Post #13

    Hi everyone...I found this thread searching COTH for any mention of my mare's sire, Fly So Free. She is OTTB, then broodmare, now prospect. We actually do mostly dressage, but she enjoys jumping so we do that too. Here is her pedigree:

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/egret+miss


    Does anyone else have any other Fly So Free offspring out there? I'm curious and love to hear about my mare's coth family

    If there are, we could do pics posting.

    There is a very recent thread on this - not hunter sires per se - but on TB sporthorses - its a very long thread about TB sport horse lines.
