    Default On "paper" should this mating produce the next "Strut the Stage"?

    Why or why not?

    Panoramic:

    to Speed Dating:

    and here is Strut the Stage:

    That is very much the goal of what the owner of this mare is trying to accomplish.

    Very curious to hear the comments as to whether it should - in theory and on paper - produce another "Strut the Stage"

    Strut the Stage has a slightly incredible female family backing him up. Speed Dating, not so much (you have to go back to the 4th dam to find a SW.) With a mare like that, you breed her to the best stallion you can afford.

    And Panoramic...well, he ain't no Theatrical.

    Why not go to Strut the Stage himself? Or Skimming? He's in Canada, too.

    Strut the Stage was a multiple graded stakes winner of well over $1 million. IOW you are talking about an elite runner who in his career was in the top 1 % of the breed in talent.

    I know you own Panoramic but seriously, if that is the goal, your client needs to get real. Stallions standing for $1100 generally don't sire horses like Strut the Stage. That's why they are $1100. Even breeders using the best sires and mares in Kentucky may land on a graded SW between one in twenty and one in ten matings. That level of talent is very, very rare which is why it is very, very expensive.

    I'm all for breeding your heart's desire but that said, a breeder needs to be realistic.

    I would also say no.

    On paper these horses were bred to be the next Strut the Stage -

    Both by his sire - Theatrical, out of a half-sister. I believe Samson repeated this cross four times.
