    Default Yet another pedigree thread!

    I've had my tb for almost 2 years now, but didn't have any info on him. Today I heard back from the jockey club! I now know his name/pedigree etc and was wondering if you'd look at it for me! Obviously I already own/compete him as an eventer so it's pure curiosity I know nothing about tb bloodlines!
    Thanks!

    It's very, very nice for a sport tb. Top and bottom double to Damascus, Bagdad, Private Account, Key to the Mint, Danzig, Blue Larkspur on the first page ...And a lot of really, really good mares in there also. Only line I don't like is Reviewer, but he is certainly balanced out by the mare, Misty Morn to whom he was bred.

    Free to Fly produced very durable racers of quality. Tail female has far fewer starts, but was high quality.

    I can't help you much as I know nothing about his breeding except way back. Someone is bound to see this and tell you more. In the meantime congratulations and I hope you have a great time with him.

    yumm.... I don't think I've ever met a horse with both Damascus and Danzig that I didn't really like
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    Oh my goodness! You have a Fly So Free baby!

    He was my absolute favorite -I visited him several times -a kind, special horse!

    yes -Fly so Free boasts Damascus, My Babu and Reviewer.

    I see on the bottom you have Chris Evert -how cool! Also Private Account (more Damascus) and Key to the Mint. All good on to see on the mare side.

    But above all I am jealous -I always wanted a Fly So Free. Please post pictures!

    I was able to dig this out of the broken link on pedigree query. Lovely horse!

    Link doesn't work for me.
    I get "access forbidden".

    That picture is so cool, thanks Simkie.
    Wow, I'm so excited to hear this about his pedigree! Super cool. I adore him and he's been great for my riding, love hearing he's bred well as well!

    Here's a couple pictures of him! A few are copyrighted, I apologize but I promise I am buying them (:

    Okay...maybe more than a couple (:
    We were fairly successful at Training level last year, and recently moved up to Preliminary! We've completed 2 prelims so far and he's been amazing at both! He's super fun (:
    I kind of can't believe that I ended up with him, actually! We bought him knowing nothing about his breeding or history, he had done a few Prelims successfully (hence buying him) but wow, he's surprisingly well bred! Guess I got super lucky (:
    Thanks everyone for your input on the pedigree!

    Besides the sport horse, he has loads of racing blacktype, my personal fave Pompeii and most obviously his dam being a half to Omi a producer of Diamond Omi and Abuela.
