This conversation is rather ridiculous, but if you want to place your bets according to color, then pick yourself a nice grey horse...lol
Bold Ruler our of Soemthingroyal 1969 produced The Bride who could not beat a fat man down a hill, Ribot had 4 siblings with the same parentage as did Northern Dancer....It is a crap shoot pure and simple with far less predictability than one realizes once you understand recombinations during meiosis.
genes for coat color are not linked to other aspects of gentotype...NO ONE knows what loci or combination of loci create stamina, speed, etc.

"Horse coat colors, and the related genetic factors can be an fascinating study. The combinations of various genes together comprise the final coat color you see. Knowledge of the various genes and the actions they cause, can help you to better understand horse coat colors, and can even help you predict possible colors of the offspring of most individuals." I still trust Dr. Reed.
Just food for thought, Humph. Seems like your link is backing me more than you. Maybe I'm mistaken. Peace, bro.
Educate yourself before exposing ingnorance. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equine_coat_color_genetics
malarkey....that would be akin to someone telling me that my genome has a full 75% associated with my sking pigment. Think about the myriad of factors the genome replicates and realize that statement is full of holes. Take a genetics course quickly!
Dr. W. O. Reed told me that 75% of a horses genes are indicated by the horses color. His dam, PERSIMMON HILL is a chestnut. Odysseus should be able to win the Belmont.
Horses have what 64 chromosomes? Human genomes are no different so the independent assortment of chromosomes into gamates during meiosis produces a enormous diversity among the possible genotypes of progeny. For EACH of the 32 pair of chromsomes, there are 2 to the 32nd power DIFFERENT combinations that occur in a gamate.The likliehood that the same parents could produce two offspring with identical, or for that matter, even close to the same genetic material is 1 in 2 to the 32 power....Genetics is all theoretical however the INDIVIDUAL in front of you is what you evaluate.
