    Default Article on Sir Gaylord, great TB sire in sport

    The article is about him in racing, but it includes a full description of the horse's conformation. Well worth reading.

    This is great blog, well worth wandering through. There's a long article on Never Bend, followed by another on his descendants at stud.

    There's going to be another article on Sir Gaylord in the stud.

    Love, love, love the Sir Gaylord line! Lord Avie was a huge favorite as well. Took care of a filly of his at the OBS Jan Mixed sale years ago and actually cried after she sold and the van driver came to take her away. He had to give us a minute -- I wanted her soooo bad!! Fabulous types and temperments for sport. Thanks, Viney!!

    As frequently occurs, may be his momma who's the biggest contributor.

    Default Sir Gaylord

    We have two broodmares, Mabelino and Wheres My Nurse, who were winning steeplechasers for Kinross farm. They are half sisters out of Suzanne Pollard who was by Lord Gaylord, a son of Sir Gaylord. Mabelino has several babies steeplechasing. We have our first baby out of her this year, a filly by Bradenburgs Windstar, and we are thrilled. Nurse was just bred to Clare De Lune. Fingers crossed for next year.... Thanks so much for the great information!!

    Very cool!

    My Anglo-Trakehner mare's dam was sired by Game Lord, a son of Lord Gaylord.

    Yup. Great link. My Shire/TB stallion is from the Sir Gaylord line -- and he's more phenotypically influenced by his TB dam. "Turn-To" also on the dam's damside. How lucky am I?

    Thanks for posting.

    Thank you! Your mares are lovely as well. Best wishes for your upcoming foals!

    Sadie really is a blast to ride. I bred her once because I liked her so much I wanted another one for myself, but mostly she's my riding horse. Her daughter is 4 this year, and both of them share the same great work ethic, responsiveness, and tons of freedom through the shoulder. Both are small mares with huge strides.

    Very cool. My first horse was a Tb mare by Sir Gaylord. She was great!

    The foundation mare (dam: http://www.herselffarm.com/ProveItMal.html) of my two broodmares had Sir Gaylord in the 4th generation. She had 7 foals, 6 fillies and one colt.

    Her two daughters that I have, have had 4 foals, all fillies!

    The dispositions and athletic ability of all of them is incredible, and they all have nice boning.

    Thanks Viney for the link.

    Thumbs up

    thanks for that link, Viney. I loved it.

    Sir Gaylord is A Fine Romance's great grandsire, the sire of his granddam Gay Missile.
    He is also the great grandsire of my broodmare Cricket, aka Devon Girl, who is the full sister of AFR.

    remember that the body measurements were done when Sir Gaylord was only two, so he would have grown and matured over time. But they are still interesting, since one could almost build a model of him at that time from the figures. If anyone had the knowledge and computer programs, a computer generated horse could be developed.
