    Default Standardbred Breeding/Name Question

    When I see the Standardbred races on TV, I keep noting the suffix for lack of a better term Seelster. I remember Falcon Seelster...are these horses all from the same breeder like a kennel name in dogs would be? Just curious. Thanks for your help!

    Yes, every horse you see with Seelster as part of it's name was bred by Seelster Farms in Lucan, Ontario. Southwind (NJ) and Blue Chip (NY) are two other farms that come to mind that use the farm name as part of the horse's name. The "pan" horses come from Peter Pan Stable (OH) and there are others that I can't remember at the moment.

    There are TONS of prefixes and suffixes in Standardbred breeding. Here's a list of many of them: http://www.standardbredcanada.ca/con...ved-names.html I know of others too but they're either not listed here, not current, or just name their horses that way without officially registering the suffix.

    I used to own a Seelster horse. Very, very nice gelding.

    It is so different from thoroughbreds. The farm in the name reminds me of Arabs.
