    Default HELP TB pedigree question

    Does anyone know what farm uses the prefix MCR?

    Also what does anyone know about Carlingford Castle? What can you tell me about him? I am trying to figure out where my mares dam came from and her bloodlines.

    Thank you!!

    Thoroughbreds don't often use prefixes. IIRC, the Jockey Club discourages it.

    This Carlingford Castle? Lovely European pedigree for sport with the Wild Risk tail male and the My Babu (along with the rest of it.)

    I'm actually just grabbing at straws to be honest.
    I don't know her actual pedigree because she wasn't registered but was bred for sport by a warmblood breeding farm that stood a very nice holsteiner stallion many years back. The mare was named MCR Carlingford. I notice they use the prefix on some of their other horses but since I don't know the farm name I thought maybe they did some race track breeding too.

    Carlingford Castle stood in Europe. Are you in Europe? If you are in the US, I would be quite surprised to find one of his foals here. He would not be used as a sire for a US bred foal.

    I am in Canada but she came from the states. The stallion was imported and had the same prefix. She was owned by the same owners. So I dont know the history or if they imported any other horses. But that is unlikely i guess. It will remain a mystery I guess.
