    Default Viney-Flower Alley as a sporthorse sire?

    What do you think of Flower Alley as a sporthorse sire? I think he is gorgeous. His website even discusses mating options (for racing, however).

    Pretty much the same old stuff you see in so many commercially viable Thoroughbred stallions standing to the racing community -- Mr. P and Northern Dancer doubled up. Not something you want for sporthorse breeding. He looks a bit tied in at the knee and has a little dip at his withers/neck connection. Not one that would make my list. His pedigree gets better as you go backwards with Vaguely Noble and Reviewer. I think Lycius might also be ND, not sure. The good thing with the ND stallions up close is that Danzig and Sadlers Wells both are pretty nice with some sporthorse credentials. My thoughts would be to keep looking.
