Thanks, Robm. Blended Citizen (MRP/HYP/ND/BOIS) with no stamina chefs, especially with Langfuhrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr is a tough one. Should be interesting since he is from that nick with 9 winners (MRP/ND) or 10 if you want to throw in (MRP/SC) and both Thunder Gulch (MRP/HYP/ND/x) and Sarava (x/HYP/ND/BOIS) previous winners with no stamina chefs.
Tapit/P or Tapit/ND is some concern...he'll need to keep bringing those NP bms with decent dam families.
Interesting bunch...even if the big one doesn't finish it off.
any sire have more than 3 winners of the belmont ?
see if you can learn anything from this for the tapit concern'
8 generation female linebreeding
compare it to the 8 gen male linebreeding and look and note at the 5 gen. pedigree
you know how bad the nor dan /br nick is for the derby, look at something royal and natalma
they are not compatible in the belmont . if hofburg wins he will be the first for this angle.
I have Lexington with four. Tapit is in good company with Man O' War but given the eras, Tapit's feat is pretty impressive with nothing but good mares waiting in line.
lexington with 4 , lexington/ leamington were quite a ,pair i think virgil and hindoo caught lexingtons daughters
all good lines.
look at how many tapits are out there in the next 2 crops. lots of P/N i'm sure.
somebody will get a jump start on that angle with deep pockets and the percentage of culls
will go up if they are buying off of 1 furlong works. i'll look for some homebreds.
i edited message 90 gallant man won the belmont not the derby.
those linebreeding charts for females are dups angle in a 8 generation chart
thats puts their progeny 7th generation or closer.
here is what a freaks up close influence looks like
8 gen female linebreeding chart
with 8 gen male linebreeding chart displayed underneath
justify is in a world of his own,
Hofburg and Noble Indy's nick has one winner in Rags To Riches. I separate API out from BR but I guess the BR/ND will do with SC thrown in.
I view lines different when it is fillies or colts. Much different mixing going on there. I count that as zero. But that is part of what kept me off Nyquist for KD
