    Default Bloodline question - TB broodmare

    I was hoping some of you could tell me what you think of this mare's pedigree as a potential sporthorse broodmare. I have the chance to use her for breeding in 2011 and wonder if her bloodlines would help or hinder the marketing of a future foal. Thanks

    I hope to find an Alphabet Soup mare for my very own one day.

    I like her quite a bit - lots of sport names.

    Thank you both for the positive feedback on the mare's breeding . I knew her bloodlines were nice for racing, but wasn't sure about for anything else. I will try to get some pics tomorrow if the weather cooperates. She is a big girl, about 16.2 - 16.3, and very upright. She has a full brother who is a nice upper level dressage horse and she has excellent movement, too. Couldn't outrun a fat man on the track though, so she is lucky she has an amazing owner who truly cares about her ex-racers.

    Default Really very good

    Especially if you like War Admiral. I didn't count the times but he is all over the place and then more Man O War. I am not a huge MOW fan believeing that it is Rock Sand that is the important part of the pegree of MOw but either way you have MOW you have Rock Sand. No real weak spots and well know horses like Stage Door Johnny close up. Very nice double Prince John. Almost all the horses in her pedigree are lovely sport type conformations. I want her when you are done with her...I blanket TBs in the winter. PatO
