A Nick Above the Norm
Written by Byron Rogers | Apr 24, 2009 |
It is quite common in Thoroughbred breeding to see the success of one sire
or sire line ride off the back of the success of a nick or in particular the
presence of a stallion in a genetic population.
There seems to be, at least in Europe, a strong genetic tie between the
former stablemates Danehill and Sadler’s Wells with the most recent example
being the surprise Sandown Derby Trial (gr. III) winner Above Average.
