    Default What can you tell from this pedigree?

    Good afternoon!

    I recently got my hands on an OTTB named Tuscany's Express and would like to know if anyone (since I have zero experience in the race world) could tell me anything about him by looking at his pedigree? Also, is it normal for there to be more than one instance of inbreeding in a pedigree?

    Here it is (let me know if the link doesn't work):

    Thanks in advance!

    Multiple crosses to the same horse are very common and get more common the farther back in the pedigree you go.

    I can't say much from the racing standpoint, but the horse has many ancestors with descendants who have done well in sport.
