    Default TB lines... Alydar

    Ok, since others are playing with Seattle Slew lines, anyone have Alydar in their horses blood? My rescue TB is a grandson and so far has been a fun guy to work with. He seems to enjoy the little bit of jumping he has done too.

    We have had lovely offspring from this mare:
    http://www.horsetelex.nl//horses/pedigree/303232
    She is still going strong with a junior rider showing and eventing. Her first foal is an FEI dressage horse who can also win in the hunters and equitation division.

    We have grand kids that are also equally talented, and are looking forward to starting another one later this fall.

    Our best broodmare DoUThinkUCanDance is by Wheaton who is by Alydar. She has given us 3 wonderful foals. The first 2 by Escapade and this years is by Amazing. I can't say enough good things about her, her temperment and her foals. Just love Alydar in a pedigree!!

    Alydars tend to be sound and consistently good jumpers

    One of my OTTBs is out of a mare by Alydar's son Criminal Type. He is sound and an excellent jumper and mover. I have never had a horse who is so naturally soft and round and to the base over fences. I had heard that Alydars can be a bit temperamental and opinionated, and my guy is that as well, but he is also extremely smart, retains everything he learns, and is just an amazing horse. After about 9 months of under saddle work, he is already schooling and showing 1st level dressage and has been a well behaved star at his first two hunter shows.
    I have followed some of his dam's other offspring, and one is rising through the ranks in eventing and another is showing great aptitude for both hunters and dressage.
    I have a friend who has an OTTB with Alydar close up in his pedigree, too; her horse is an excellent jumper, but also shows the opinionated side of the Alydar line.

    I had an OTTB by Alydeed. He was a talented jumper with the most amazing hind end (easily schooled 1.30). Not hunter type, not the prettiest head, but he was 17.1 hh. He was difficult, and when he made up his mind he didn't want to work, he just didn't. Seemingly he has a mellowed a bit and has now been a first horse for a young teen.

    I just sold a broodmare who was by Alydar.. has a REALLY fantastic hind end and passed it on to her Balta'Czar colt this year. She got a very high warmblood inspection score.
    She was very pretty too with a feminine head. Exceptional walk for a TB.

    I boarded a yearling out of an Alydar daughter--what a fantastic boy he was! Mellow, sweet, BIG, athletic but not hot, just like his mother. Sadly, he flipped over and had neurologic issues and after the owner tried to get him to the track, he was destroyed. What a waste...

    Our stallion has Alydar through Alysheba on his dam's side. The jumping and soundness definitely came through on him.

    Alydar is one of our top 3 preferred bloodlines for eventing.

    I own this guy
    http://www.pedigreequery.com/sad+sack

    Retired now, had a lot of back problems (not blaming Alydar, he had a tough life). He was a very, very good jumper, scopey and clever, and had a really fun, cocky personality.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/cover_magic/7579953052/ Here is a link to his pictures. He was a rescue, you can scroll and see the first picture of him after 1 month being rescued by the Humane Society. He is by Alymagic out of Cover Me Up. I don't know how to link his pedigree, but you can put his name in and find it. The dark bay is my Redwine filly.

    He has the breeding to be one heck of a good sport horse. He's got a jewel down in the very bottom, as Loujac is a son of Ariel. I really, really like this pedigree.

    Just a few notes: On-and-On was a sire line in multiple sporthorse champions in Dr. Birdsall. Transworld was the sire of one of the greatest Steeplechasers in American history--Lonesome Glory. Alydar was the grandsire on top of Richard Spooner's showjumper, Bradford (JC Dark Grey).

    Beam Me Up, my filly's dam sire is Heff! She's just getting started under saddle and is opinionated and athletic as hell. Our eventing future should be pretty interesting

    Default Alydar sons

    I had a horse h/j by Turkoman. He was smart, good jumper, and great disposition. A Florida Bred.

    I had an Alydar grandson who took great care of me at 3'6". He was big 17.0 , well put together and definitely had an opinion about a few things but point him at a jump, he was going.
    He was a fun horse. Lost him to colic about 4 years ago.

    Kind of makes you wonder if there are any more RANs out there with On-and-On as damsire.

    On PedigreeQuery, there are four horses shown with On-and-On as damsire. 3 of them are out of Sweet Tooth, Alydar's dam. The other is out of Vastness. All of them were colts, so unless there are some unlisted fillies with that breeding, the line is probably dead in the US except through Alydar.

    Americano, full brother, went to Australia first and then Saudi Arabia (if that's what a Muslim country with the abbreviation SDA is).

    Foyt, full brother, had a few very undistinguished in the US and then got sent to Brazil.

    Hopefully On, full brother, got sent to Japan at 4.

    Saratoga 4, the son out of Vastness, got sent to South Africa.

    Foyt's early US crops would be the only other hope.
