Here is one of my favorite tricks. Set up a virtual stable at brisnet.com. Go to the Del Mar pedigree database. Pick a stallion or mare you like, and look up progeny. Find the age you like, and enter those that qualify in your virtual stable. Then once you receive some brisnet notices, find the ones running at a nearby track and stalk him/her. Send a note to a CANTER person that you are interested in " .." if you notice he/she is not winning consistently, or is winning at a level you can afford. I have about 20 from my favorite sire in my database right now, and I am tracking their racing histories in case one might come up.
I bought my mare a year ago while perusing her pedigree I went to progeny and found that she was bred to Walsh, someone in breeding her was interested in a Slew on top and on the bottom, as I went to his progeny I deduced that he was used sometimes for sport horse breeding. Here is my mare's pedigree. I do not think if Seattle Slew has been discussed as it appears here in the female line on the top.
As she is not that young anymore I sometimes muse at what she could have become if she would have not been a broodmare for all of these years. I am an amy owner and just fool around a bit on her, we might be looking at teaching her to jump this winter.

IIRC, Slew's last foals were in 2003, although there weren't many 2002s or 2003s. He died in 2002, so his youngest were posthumous. Still, the youngest would be only 9 or ten. Grand get ought to still be fairly common. No need to go to great grands unless you find one you love.
