Cherokee One as a sire? Questions from a sport-horse person...
Curious what the race-horse COTH people have to say about Cherokee Run as a sire? I'm a sport-horse person, but, it doesn't seem like many have made it to the sport-horse world yet, but he's surely sired some nice race horses Anything to watch out for with his get? Any characteristics that make you say - Well, he is by Cherokee Run...' I did notice he has sired some turf horses, which is always nice to see, particulalry with a sire who - from what I've read - isn't a 'distance' horse.
ETA: I'm not looking to breed to him, I'm looking for information specific to what he is reproducing. What he's proven he can sire, or, what he won't influence.
I have a 6 yo mare by Cherokee Run. She's about 15.3, cute as a button. She's in KY being bred to Langfhur. I don't know any other Cherokee Run's so I don't know that she is a specific type. I do know she is a racehorse. I won 6 in a row with her at the starter allowance level.
Thanks brightsky.. SHe's a nice girl. We claimed her for 5k, and she won and ran for us til mid may. Then she fractured her sesamoid at Parx. She finished the race 4th, and even got to the leaders (who went pretty darn fast), showed how much heart she has. I'm waiting anxiously to see if she took the second time. But can't wait for her to come home either way, I miss her.
