The Tribe has Spoken! - Curlin tops potential matings for Rachel Alexandra
Written by Byron Rogers | Nov 05, 2009 |
With close to 500 responses, the TrueNicks community overwhelmingly picked Horse of the Year Curlin to top the potential matings for super mare Rachel Alexandra. Some would say that it was an unsurprising result given the ownership of the two horses, but it was a very competitive voting process and there were a number of stallions who were well regarded by the community. In order the top 7 stallions by voting were:
- Curlin (TrueNicks,SRO)
- A.P. Indy (TrueNicks,SRO)
- Tiznow (TrueNicks,SRO)
- Dynaformer (TrueNicks,SRO)
- Street Cry (IRE) (TrueNicks,SRO)
- Big Brown (TrueNicks,SRO)
- Birdstone (TrueNicks,SRO)
As promised,we have prepared a Pedigree Consultants mating analysis for the mare which you can download here along with the TrueNicks Reports for the two regions (North American matches and Worldwide matches) that we ran earlier in the year. For those that are interested, Alan's pick outside of what the community suggested is the Claiborne stallion Pulpit (TrueNicks,SRO), a sire that we believe this year is particularly well priced.
We are delighted that the TrueNicks community took such an active involvement in helping us set up this report to present to Mr. Jackson. We really appreciate all the feedback that we have gotten from the community and while we could not include all the details on the final report, there were some outstanding suggestions and comments that really helped make the report what it is.
