What are some breeding crosses that have worked well over the years. I am obsessed with the derbyville game and love the breeding aspect

sire of sires
Q of the D : who has been Mr. Prospector's best son at stud? Fappiano, Forty Niner, Woodman, Gulch, Gone West, Seeking the Gold, Kingmambo, or Machiavellian?

  • LAZMANNICK · I like Gone West who showed his versatility when siring many top stakes winners both short and long including Belmont winner Commendable, BC Sprint winner Speightstown and top dirt performers like Came Home. On the turf he sired Johar a BC Turf winner and Da Hoss two time BC Turf Mile winner. One of his greatest sons was the good sir Elusive Quality who sired Smarty Jones and BCC winner Raven’s Pass, and whose greatest sire offspring just could end up being Quality Road…..Fappiano’s two greatest achievements were siring Unbridled and Quiet American…….Kingmambo sired something like 16 millionaires. · 1076 days ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · For me it's close between Kingmambo & Machiavellian. · 1076 days ago
on ebay, they have halters from Mr. Prospector, Seattle Slew, Go For Gin, Nijinsky, & Tom Rolfe. all outrageous prices though.

  • buckpasser · Kaitline. I saw on a couple of them that they were acquired from the manager of Ashford Dr. Barry Simmons. Mr. Prospector has no Provence listed I.e. How it was acquired. Personally If Simmons is not signing the CO, I would question the item. Also COs from whom at the Horse Park? Somebody in a position of authority? Or some high school kid who is a part time groom there? · 1158 days ago
  • Buckpasser · As a racing memorabilia collector, I would steer clear of items that can be so easily faked. If they don't have an actual provenance showing exactly who had this item and it's transfer from one party to another, I would run the other way. eBay has always been a hot bed for high priced fakes to be sold. With these halters, given their prices, they need to have a bit more than just a CO IMO. · 1157 days ago
Okay, so, I think HRN really needs to fix when you posts. I think there should be a "save" button or something, because I was wrapping up a long paragraph, but I accidentally deleted it, LOL. Anyway, I just noticed, Mr. Prospector had one of the best pedigrees I've seen. First, his dam side. His dam was a very solid racehorse who was a 5x Stakes winner. The broodmare sire was Nashua, who was a dominating 3yr old, he won the Florida Derby, Wood Memorial, Preakness, Belmont, Dwyer and defeated older males in the Jockey Gold Cup. In the third generation on the dam side, consisted of Nasrullah (a soliid English racehorse) and Count Fleet (1943 Triple Crown Champion). Of course, also the dam that produced Sequence (2g, dam side, mare) was Miss Dogwood who was a very good racehorse and won the Kentucky Oaks. In the cement fourth generation, champions like Bull Dog (great sire), Reigh Count (Kentucky Derby), Johnstown (Kentucky Derby), and Nearco (Italian phenoam). Further back in the fifth generation, you have horses such as Teddy, Blue Larkspur and Jamestown. From the sire, he inherited deadly speed. Raise a Native was 4 for 4 as a 2yr old, won stakes from 5-5.5f, before retiring from a bowed tendon. He went on to be a champion sire of 78 stakes winners like Majestic Prince, Alydar, Exclusive Native and Mr Prospector himself. Native Dancer was the 2G sire and he is a Top 10 N/A horse of all time. Than, of course, you have Polynesian. In the fourth generation, he is inbred to Teddy and Discovery is also 4G (greatest broodmare sire ever, including Native Dancer) and American Flag. In 5G, a Top 3 Racehorse of Man o' War is there (great sire, too). Whisk Broom, Ajax, John P Grier, and Display finish the 5G stars. Through Whisk Broom, he traces to Broomstick and Ben Brush. Leamington is in there and Goldolphin Arabian lineage. Also on the dam side, Ben Brush and Broomstick to trace to Goldolphin. Not to mention, in 5g on the Dam side, The Tetrach is there. My question is, is breeding truly a crapshoot? I think it is, but not to the extent some posters say where it is a COMPLETE crapshoot. I think this supports the belief of breed the best to the best, and hope for the best. Mr. Prospector had a great pedigree, turned out to be a good racehorse, and a great sire. Just in my opinion, not many top racehorses come from crappy pedigrees. Therefore, I think pedigree can truly be a resource to the outline of how good a racehorse can be. I might look more into this (influencial sires) and see who else had a good/bad pedigree. I think this scenario, of Mr. Prospector, shows that breeding is less of a crapshoot than people make it out to be. Thoughts?
