Last year, I gave you 6 Tips to Get More Out of the Stallion Register Online. One of my suggestions was to use the "Advanced Search" tool to find stallions by sire, dam, damsire, and year entered stud.
Over the years, I've heard from lots of SRO users about that advanced search tool and how they never knew it existed because it was "hidden" on another page. One of the most frequent suggestions that I've received is to make these additional search criteria easier to access. (To counteract the whole "out of sight, out of mind" reality....)
So, by popular demand: The Blood-Horse Stallion Register Online now allows custom searches from the home page.
You can be specific and use multiple criteria to really narrow down the search:
Enter "A.P. Indy" as sire and "Nureyev" as broodmare sire, and you'll get two results.
Enter "California" as location and "2006" as year entered stud, and you'll find 19 Golden State stallions whose first crop are juveniles of 2009.
You can also be vague and enter only the information that you know.
Can't remember the full name? Enter "north" in the stallion name field and you'll find all stallions whose name begins with those letters, whether it's Northdrop or Northrop, Northward Bound or Northern Meteor (AUS).
Or, just enter a single data point and see how many stallions match!
And I guess I can add a #7 to those 6 Tips: accessing the Stallion Register Online doesn't require long URLs and multiple clicks. Just type StallionRegister.com into your browser, and you're off and running!
