Winter's Yearly Homebred Box   Triple Crown

Started Apr-25 by Wintertrian; 478 views.

From: Wintertrian


it's been a "tradition" for me to post a homebreds exacta box.  THIS IS A GIMMICK WAGER and does not affect my actual lineup or pick for the KY Derby winner. 

For a gimmick wager I guess you could do a lot worse.  :) 

FWIW, breeders of Happy Jack, Tawny Port and Rich Strike have won the derby in the past, but none of these are homebreds this year.   I also did not go thru the entire list because so many breeders are either not in operation anymore or have combined with other partnerships now that don't match up anything I can work out.

Thank you. Hope it hits!

We have a "gimmicks" exacta topic every year, and mine is always the homebreds, so I'm just going for not breaking my tradition here. 

Sometimes there are gimmicks for certain sires, or certain trainers, or even alphabetical, llke "all the A horses", etc.

Usually a very fun and quixotic topic.

Homebreds meaning they weren't sold but kept by the breeders?

In case you are wondering how potent this angle is (of homebreds winning the KY Derby) here's a little chart based on the reasearch I did.   I only went back to 1930 in my chart here,  although there were 17 other homebreds who won the KY Derby before 1930.   

A homebred winning the KY Derby I would say it's pretty *potent*.  Which, in the course of my research led me to make this my traditional hallmark topic. 

91 years (1930 to 2021) 49 horses + 2 DQs were homebreds (I counted the DQs because they did cross the finish line 1st as homebreds) for a 55% hit rate.

If you add in the other 17 I didn't include before 1930, starting with Aristedes in 1875, the hit rate is more in the 70%+ percentile.

I thought it was rather generous to leave them with 45% of the other horses
