TrueNicks Gets Enhanced!
Written by Ian Tapp | Nov 22, 2010 |
As today's breeders and buyers of racehorses become increasingly savvy, they demand more information when making decisions. Our TrueNicks customers have asked for more, and today we are proud to present the new TrueNicks Enhanced report.
The Enhanced report adds a second page of multiple cross-specific data points. Through the end of January, 2011, we are offering FREE Enhanced reports for all 500+ TrueNicks subscribed stallions. You still get the TrueNicks rating and variant score, five-cross pedigree, inbreeding notation, and dosage statistics, but you'll now find the following new information to aid in your analysis:
- Starters considered in each rating
- Auction results
- Surface performance
- Sire and broodmare sire AEI, average winning distances, and chief earners
- Number of foals of racing age, starters, winners, SW, earnings, and average racing/winning distances
- Racing statistics listed by all foals, by colts, and by fillies
- Comparison tables for sire and broodmare sire lines with all other lines
- Top 15 horses bred on the cross (increased from five)
TrueNicks co-developer Alan Porter, who first unveiled the Enhanced report at the 2010 Thoroughbred Pedigree & Genetics Symposium, called the report "a major step forward in pedigree analysis."
Porter continued, "Now—all in one comprehensive report—the breeder or prospective buyer not only has the TrueNicks rating, but beyond that a snapshot of what the mating means in terms of potential aptitude and commercial prospects. Using the whole database of The Jockey Club Information Systems, the report presents the most current, accurate, and comprehensive information available. We're confident that this ground-breaking report will prove an invaluable resource for stallion managers, breeders, and buyers alike."
Byron Rogers, who partners with Porter in Pedigree Consultants LLC, added that "in addition to the TrueNicks rating, stallion owners are now presented with a wealth of information to help them manage and promote their stallions, including auction, surface, and distance data. Additionally, with the report now showing the top 15 horses bred on the cross, stallion owners now have a more compelling case for promoting the mating at hand to prospective breeders."
Enhanced reports are now free through the end of January, 2011, for subscribed stallions, and you can purchase reports for any other hypothetical mating or named foal for $25 through Equineline.
