    As we all know there are so many TB's that have found homes off the track, and as the WB people keep eyes on the best stallions, I've found it fun watching the TB racing stallions and trying to figure out which ones produce great hunter prospects.
    My boy is by I Am The Game...who is deceased now but I know of 5 of his babies that are either out competing in the zones or will be soon.
    His mom is by Sit Ivor. My guess is he's a pretty awesome hunter sire/ grandsire.
    Maestro was by Smokin Joe.
    I also love another BB'ers Canter TB's style. She named him American Idol and he's by St Jovite.

    Any of you have favorite racing TB stallion sires that have crossed into other horse sports?

    I know theres a sports horse board, but theres alot of people here that have had x TB's that aren't necessarily known to be out of "Sport Stallions".

    I no longer own him, but I had a great TB gelding who was a very nice hunter type. He is by Fighting Fit out of a mare by Barrera.
    Here is the gelding's pedigree.
    And here is a picture of the gelding when I owned him.

    I also had a Northern Dancer granddaughter who was a great jumper type. She was very athletic and turned faster than anything I've ever been on (got me in trouble a few times she turned so fast).

    Very cute horse Hunt-jump and a good pedigree. He looks like he was fun...how was the brain?

    Jumper Bean, what do you do with your kid?

    I know a lot Mr Prospector babies are out in the hunters too. The ones I know personally are wonderful once they've overcome the challenging brain thing.

    My mare's (now deceased http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif) grandsire was Sir Ivor! She also had Bold Ruler 4 gen back (yeah I know... far http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif), Somethingroyal, Northern Dancer

    Had 2 geldings who's sire was Mr. Prospector

    Had one horse from a sale who's name turned out to be Unbridled Express... guess who his daddy was! (And he was gorgeous to say the least) Unfortunately he broke down so bad he was euthanized the week we got him (he just laid down all the time and walked on 3 legs when he did walk... was just cut before the auction... was drugged enough to gimp on three legs... he was VERY sick)

    Mr. Prospector's offspring make good hunters http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Yes, I loved him and really miss him. He was very quite in general, but had some quirks about getting to the rings and he tended to get a bit up tight and stressed. He just wasn't real brave outside the ring. Once he was in the ring and working though he was very good and not easily flustered. He has a nice show record for the little we did when I had him(ribbons at WEF and HITS Ocala including a hack win at HITS). Surprisingly he never got hot even as he gained weight and got into shape (he was Very thin when I got him). I am really interested in his breeding. I didn't realize how nice (at least in my opinion) his breeding was until recently. Apparently some of the Fighting Fits are now showing up as sport horses and I see a bit of Full Pocket in the sport horses as well as the Crozier. I would be interested to see if anyone knows anything about the Barrera line as I know nothing about that part of his breeding.

    BTW, what is the American Idol's registered name? I love the pictures that I have seen of that horse.

    hunt-jump: he is VERY handsome, love those knees!

    Full Pocket is in a lot of hunters! My sister has a full pocket broodmare that has turned out some brilliant hunter babies!

    I just love Private Account. I can't say enough about this stallion. Every get of his I've seen looks JUST like him and is nice, nice, NICE! He seems to up the ante on anything the mare brings to the table.

    I also like Buckpasser for hunters. And any Alydar is worth checking out too http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    Simke, I know alot of those horses. Stage Door Johnny has a few nice ones that I've seen.

    Unbridled had a local filly that was amazing to look but, what a nut. She did herself before she was 4.

    I had a Dancers Melody geld, and the funny thing about him was that you couldn't clip him without elephant tranqulizer, and otherss told me the same thing about DM babies they knew.

    Isn't it funny how they are?

    I love Sir Ivor too. He must of been amazing.

    Heaintnosaint was American Idols name. He has a full sister foaled in 98 that I'm looking for named Jovites Halo. If anyone sees her, let me know. Or any ST Jovite babies.

    Yes, but I don't know anything about him. He has shown up in about 3rd or 4th generation (he was a 1965 Stallion) in a couple of horses that I have seen in sale ads. These are not proven sport horses though, so I'm wondering if anyone is finding this line in sport horses.

    Inmotion- our Unbridled gelding (Really a colt since he was obviously cut jsut before the sale) was a nut. When he would stand up and walk on his three legs he was bonkers. But man he was gorgeous... blood bay 3 white socks (tall white socks) and a perfect blaze, and he was about 16.2 or 16.3. But he kinda had that look in his eyes, you know?

    You pegged that mare to a tee Sunshine, she was loco. So beautiful, tall, elegant, deep bay with lotsa chrome.....but the brain was fried from birth. She ended up crippling herself in her stall as a 3 or 4 yr old. She had that eye thing too...not the good eye thing. The owners bred her dam back to Unbridled but I've never seen or heard anything except it is a colt and I should of seen or heard something by now.

    I love the name TV Commercial, but have never seen him anywhere. Looks like a job for Del Mar! I love that site!
