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
I counted 12 lines of 1-x in Hofburg's 9-gen pedigree. Of Derby runners Magnum Moon was next with 9, followed by Justify, My Boy Jack, and Promises Fulfilled with 7.
I weigh fillies differently as well, but I didn't want to take any numbers off the board for AP Indy as a sire or even that of his boys. API had 24 of his enter the TC gates and came away with a filly in the Belmont and Bernardini in the Preakness (some believe that had Barbaro not been done early and had Jazil and Bluegrass Cat not skipped the Preakness, API could have sired a shutout. His 9 runners in the Classic...still no joy. He and his line are up to 37 runners in the Classic with a record of 15-0-3-6-1.
API's line boys as sires are helping out his TC stats.
I liked the last three KD winners but not to key on top...nothing built or trained to run them down anymore.
Far, far worse......Apollo was a curse waiting to be broken, while the non-winner of the Preakness just makes more solid sense..
thanks for that, i didn't see that untill now.
here is a Tapit P/P that finished 2nd in the Belmont with Deputy minister BMS
lani a p/p finished 3rd ,sunday silence bms, but has the 8 gen female S. royal, almahmoud jinx.
FROSTED H, 2012 DP = 6-9-14-1-0 (30) DI = 2.75 CD = 0.67
This one a lot better, but I still have him in 2nd.
You may be done for the season but where does T2 show up in Gronk's pedigree? Way out of my league but was curious. Also, congratulations and thanks for all your input this season.
Sire line, for one, might be the only one, but I have not checked it all. I believe that is the T2 being referred.
Does pedigree even matter any more? Just turn your yearlings into the Hulk/Captain America/Mr. Hyde and sit back about a year and a half before trotting them out. Race them 6 or 7 times then send them to the breeding shed—after waiting a bit for them to turn back into Bruce Banner/Steve Rogers/Dr. Jekyll of course.
