Anyone want to help me out with advice , appreciate it ...
Below are my thoughts , so far ....
More than likely there is nothing here but I will post it up anyway in case you guys too understand it a bit and find it interesting ...
In the linebreeding of a pedigree ...
I focus in a few keys horses to have certain percentages which are key in previous first and 2nd place finishers in Preakness ...
These are the horses and percentages for I'm looking for inside these charts
Not many horses have Hyperion over 3 % ,but if you see I like it ... he's quality ....is what I heard ...just learning guys
1 ) Mr Prospector is a Key Horse to have in your pedigree for many of the previous Preakness 1st or 2nd place finishers 2010 - 2017 ...
Look for Mr Prospector 8 % or higher in the AGR column
2 ) Nearco ...preferably 6 % or Over
3 ) Northern Dancer 8 % or More
4 ) I really like seeing a horse with all 3 ( Mr Prospector / Nearco/ Northern Dancer ) of course with their preferred percentages ...
Noticed 2011 winner Shackleford did not have of these horses in his chart and won ...so beware , is all
Diamond King .... Using in 3rd and 4th Spots .... may use in 2nd spot as well in a few tickets ...lol ... really like his pedigree , but is he good enough to compete here ... way up in class ...
Tenfold ... exactly like Telekinesis above ...just does have the class ...but have to use in 3rd and 4th spots
|MR PROSPECTOR||3S x 5d x 6D||3||3(2)(1)||17.19%||4x4||19.22%|
|NORTHERN DANCER||5S x 8D x 6D x 6D x 5D||5||4(4)|
here is a linebreeding for justify to compare to other derby winners.
this is a 10 generation lb chart for justify males only.
check to see males and females for each Sire. for example Mr p has 4 only females, 20.31 blood,, 3x4 influence
Agr 21.91%. MR p is his top influcening. check to see where and who the 4 mares are. you will find 2 full sisters
yarn and preach , gives him the rasmussen factor, and Nijinsky is next in blood check where and who his 4 are
3 males and 1 female this is a storm cat/Ghostzapper nick with top blood of another line Mr P
with 3 males and 3 females from Northern dancer source of both male nicks .
you can do a 10 generation females only nick. good luck in your dd lb
|MR PROSPECTOR||5s x 3s x 6d x 5d||4||4 (0) (4)||20.31%|
I appreciate all your effort in reaching out with an explanation of the chart but I still don't get it ... I will have to purchase a book on it that explains it on a second grade school level >.. lol ...bit dense bro .... sorry ... I know I would love to get a hold of your knowledge in capping pedigree's because I know it would help in the TC races ... Thank u again !!
I like to look for brothers and sisters from the crosses on both sides. ex. 4Sx4d which I think may be a good reason for that MrP/ND cross, one is Native Dancer sire of a S and Native Dancer sire of BM. Also like the number of different siblings. Hyperion often shows up with several different siblings. It would be nice if it would highlight the ones for the theoretical bm passing.
you ever do a 10 generation linebreeding chart for All horses. I like to because it lists all singles, not just dups
