Clarksdale, MS--the golden buckle on the cotton belt
There is nothing not to like in that pedigree from a sport horse standpoint. Even tail female goes to Wac, who happens to have been Lear Fan's dam. On Your Guard and her daughters seem to have been a dead branch for speed, but the Belthazar family seems to have passed on the jump fairly reliably. Lear Fan (by Roberto, so jump there as well) was one of the better chasing sires. Belthazar was a daughter of War Admiral, and different one of her daughters was the dam of Alysheba. One supposes that might have the impetus behind the breeding to Alydar for Honor Guard. Vaguely Noble is a very lovely line for sport horses.
Everything about Notebook's pedigree is exemplary, and he's one of the sires who is much liked by event people.
