Interpreting the above table:
1.  Buckpasser is easily the most influential thoroughbred sire in today's pedigrees when attached to the female line.  There are 1223 foals racing in the ten major tracks [Santa Anita, Del Mar, Fair Grounds, Churchill Downs, Keeneland, Gulfstream Park, Aqueduct, Saratoga, Belmont and Woodbine] today that have Buckpasser as the broodmare sire of the 4th dam in their pedigree.  While Round Table has slightly more, he lived to 33 with 177 producing mares and Buckpasser lived only until age 15 with 148 producing mares.  Both easily top the list with Hail To Reason, Native Dancer, Better Self [only 75 producing mares], Bold Ruler, Amerigo [only 65 producing mares] and Princequillo all 6.0 and above.
2.  While Northern Dancer has a high ratio at 4.26 and is represented by 1251 foals racing today as the broodmare sire of the 3rd dam, he also has 294 producing mares.  Northern Dancer has 28 more foals racing while having more than twice as many producing mares.  Despite being a great sire of sires, along the bottom line [tail-female] Northern Dancer is clearly inferior to Buckpasser and those above him in today's pedigrees. Never Bend [ratio is 5.79], whose first foals to race were 1 crop before Northern Dancer's [4.26], is also superior to Northern Dancer, which does explain the European love of the blood of Never Bend.
3.  War Admiral is rated as "Superior" because his first crop was 1941 and yet still has 561 foals racing today as the broodmare sire of the 4th dam.  Clearly, he is now further back in today's pedigrees because he was foaled in 1934, which is 27 years before Northern Dancer in 1961.  This tells me that we have to be careful with the results above taking into consideration how close to today they were foaled to understand their true impact.  For example, Mr. Prospector's first foals hit the ground in 1976.  His ratio is only 0.70 with 372 foals from 533 producing mares.  A lot of his mares have not reached that far back in lots of pedigrees.  However, since Buckpasser's foals hit the ground only 7 years earlier, this does indicate that Mr. Prospector's outlook for superiority along the bottom half of the pedigree is highly unlikely and not probable.


From Ned Williams, A Longtime Matchmaker Client
George, I thought you would like an update on the production history of a family that you have helped me with. Two foxie's second to last foal Tale of the Nile was recently stake placed and has earned over 110,000 dollars. Her final foal is an uncle mo colt which we sold and is being broken in Ocala. Maddalena continues to produce quality horses for us. Her Scat Daddy colt Battle of Evermore is multiple stake placed and has earned over 226,000 dollars. Her uncle mo colt was ready to start at Saratoga this summer but sustained a tiny chip in his right front ankle. We removed the chip and he is back in training in Ocala.  We have a beautiful Violence yearling filly and a Union Rags weanling filly on the ground. Maddalena is back in foal to Into Mischief. Thanks for your help. I have not forgotten your advice. I think we are in a good position (having kept the Uncle Mo colt and the two most recent fillies) to keep this family moving forward. Just wanted to give you an update and to say thanks for your help. Best, Ned

I feel like your recommendation for two Foxie  led me to uncle mo for both two Foxie and Maddalena.  You thought some Arch and Indian Charlie blood would help her. Uncle Mo has both so that was a major consideration in going to him. BAM...he hits big time and I feel great about going to him when he was unproven. Thanks. I think Maddalena's Uncle Mo colt will make you very proud over this winter into spring.

Client is happy.  I am happy because the client also used his own thoroughbred pedigree skills to come up with good foals.  This is such a tough, tough game one must have a game plan to survive and thrive.

If you are in the thoroughbred business and if you can afford to be without the 2016 GSV Professional Program, then either you have a great advisor or enough money to play in this tough, tough game without regard of losses. 


Vindication is the broodmare sire of Exaggerator, winner of the 2016 Preakness Stakes and The Haskell Stakes-G1.  In the same year that Vindication won the Eclipse award as the 2yo Juvenile Champion, Mrs. Payson's filly, Farda Amiga, was also an Eclipse Winner as the 3yo Champion.  Click on the link below to read the story of Farda Amiga.

The 2016 GSV Professional Program also allows you to generate your own GSV scores for horses not in the databank by inputing a 5 generation pedigree of sires.  This program will keep you on the cutting edge in a tough, tough business, while also giving you the GRASP scores that produced the GSV scores?  It  will generate instant GSV scores for over 124,000 horses racing today and many from the past and GSV scores for hypothetical foals to aid breeders in selecting stallions and owners in claiming horses for their stable.  It will also generate a GSV score for any thoroughbred not already in the datebank if it cannot be instantly generated.  Handicappers can also use the program to input the horses in a particular race to see which has the highest GSV (Genetic Strength Value) and best chance to win the race via its pedigree.
