Blue Hen Mare
More than three centuries of breeding thoroughbred racehorses have provided a treasure chest of angles, patterns and theories to analyze and test. Now aided with high speed computing system, unavailable a few decades ago, we are able to publicly introduce innovative ideas including female-to-female matches which showcased amazing results in only a few years in practice.
Symbolic genetic traits of superior broodmares are usually attributed to their sires or grandsires. It’s universal knowledge in breeding circles that broodmare sires as powerful as Glencoe, Sweep, Discovery, Princequillo, Buckpasser, Secretariat, and others, wielded significant influence on thoroughbred bloodlines through their daughters. Of course, identifying long-lasting quality in broodmare is essentially blue hen selection which requires much more than matching sires.
