    Default TB Mare Family 4-r

    Is anyone familiar with this mare family and its sport horse production, specifically for hunters and/or jumpers? I've found good info with respect to their huge impact on racing, but little else. TIA!

    I believe that is Jet Run's female family but Viney will have to confirm.

    It's a very interesting FF. Not Jet Run's though. He's 4-m.

    4-r is very unusual because, although it derives from a GSB mare, it originated and developed in the United States. Comes from the Cub Mare who was imported in the mid 18th Century. It was exported back to Europe in the mare Sibola, who became the tail female GGranddam of Nearco. One supposes that might have had a huge impact on why his sons were so successful in North America, far more successful than they were in Europe. And Lady Josephine's American blood through Lexington didn't hurt!

    Damn, thanks Viney! 4-r sticks in my head for some reason. Before I moved I had so much research hand written, this was 1 1/2 years ago. It has disappeared and it took sooooo long to compile. I think I will have to start again.
