    Default Olympic Breeding

    Because I have not seen any analysis of the breeding of the horses that competed at Greenwich this summer, I looked through the running lists provided for eventing and showjumping and did some counting. I did not attend any dressage and the paradressage did not provide much information so the discipline is missing. Please do not take this to be authoritative or definitive! Just for interest.

    Stallions with multiple runners:

    Master Imp (TB) E x4
    Heraldik (TB) E x3
    Cruising (ISH) E x2 SJ x1
    Quidam de Revel E x1 SJ x1
    Irco Mena E x1 SJ x1
    Nabab de Reve SJ x 3
    Baloubet du Rouet SJ x3
    Quick Star SJ x 2
    Carthago Z SJ x2

    In eventing, 6 were full TB but more than 20 were sired by TB. Also at least 3 were full UK bred but listed under another stud book.

    Interesting!

    I am pretty sure Caretino also had "multiple runners" compete, a SJ from Sweden and an eventer from Russia.

    I've looked at the SJ stats in a previous thread: http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=362218

    Renascence, you are right.
    Eventing: Mikhail Nastenko riding a Holsteiner by Ceretino for Russia
    Showjumping: Rolf-Goren Bengtsson riding a Holsteiner by Ceretino for Sweden.

    Yup, did say I was doing the counting and I missed that one. Thank you for pointing it out.

    It'd be interesting to see which stallions & how many with multiple starters, had finishers.

    The stats on the 2 tb stallions' get finishing and also winning medals were very good! Too bad tbs are closed out of so many WB registries, IMO.
