    Default Thoroughbred stallions?

    I am looking for a thoroughbred stallion to breed to my jumper mare, does anyone know of any good places to find lists of tb studs? I want to find a good stud who produces sport horse babies and not one for racing. Thanks!

    Here are links to two performance tested TB stallions:

    Anthem xx: http://www.legendstudfarm.com/

    Sea Accounts xx: http://www.debracysporthorses.com/ap...Sea%20Accounts

    And then off-course there is A Fine Romance, who I *think* was approved via sport:

    There is already another whole thread about this that goes on for pages and pages and pages and mentions all sorts of obscure stallions all over the country.
    But A Fine Romance is nice, as is Sea Accounts, who I have met and seen and would breed to in a heartbeat. Eventrider who posts here rides him if you want to PM her.
    And of course there is Reputed Testamony who belongs to Denny Emerson (and who is my young mare's daddy), and Salute the Truth (www.dodonfarm.com)

    For a jumper mare, Coconut Grove certainly demands consideration.

    I bred a mare to Coconut Grove and that cross has been repeated.
    Yavari is also an interesting TB stallion. Google for him.

    Default Sailor Boy

    Sailor Boy passes on tremendous bone and size, as well as great temperament and 12 movement. I have crossed him to Holsteiners and Swedish WBs and had super results. His TB babies are awesome too - Stephen Bradley has two TB Sailor Boy colts that he bought as wenalings in late 2005. Sailor tends to throw lots of chrome, including a nearly bald faced dark bay TB colt in 2007. He is a Harbor Man son. He stands in eastern VA.

    A lot of the answer is going to depend on whether or not you want to register the foal with the Jockey Club. If so, you're going to have a stallion that will do live cover and you will have to haul your mare to him.

    Where you are located could make a huge difference in recommendations if you are going to be using live cover.

    As far as registering the foal with the Jockey Club that is not going to be a huge priority as it will not be used for racing.

    Thanks to everyone for all of the information! It is much appreciated! Any more ?

    If the resulting foal is a filly, it may be short-sighted not to register her with the Jockey Club. Some breed registires require JC papers for TB offspring. It is not so expensive if done early enough - very expensive if done as an afterthought.

    And here we are again. If you're not going to do live cover, please try and register the foal somewhere other than the JC.

    How are sport horse breeders going to be able to use your bloodlines later on if you don't?

    Thoroughbred stallions - if you do your homework, you can find TB stallions here that produce excellent sporthorses.

    SF stallions

    Please register - it makes a difference if you ever have to sell him/her to so many people and can play an important role in the type of home he/she could go to.

    Thanks for the concern however I wasn't planning on not registering the foal I just didn't want to do it with the JC . It would really limit my options on stallions. I think it would be better to get a better stallion and register with a different association, than to limit my options and register with the JC for a horse who will never race.

    Does anyone know anything about Yavari's offspring? What type he throws? Thanks for all the information so far!
