TrueNicks Reports for Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe
Written by Ian Tapp | Oct 04, 2013 |
Complimentary TrueNicks Enhanced Reports are available below for the Oct. 6 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (Fr-I) at Longchamp. Click on a horse's name or rating to view the full report.
TrueNicks ratings (A, B, C, etc.) describe the stakes winner strike rate of a particular sire/broodmare sire cross compared to the records of those sire lines when bred to all other lines. Ratings don't describe the quality of a particular horse, but rather they describe the efficiency of that horse's cross, i.e. the "nick."
TrueNicks reports offer breeders, buyers, and stallion owners up-to-date racing data from The Jockey Club database to help describe a prospective mating. The TrueNicks Enhanced Report answers questions like:
- how often has the cross been tried?
- how often does the cross result in a stakes winner?
- who are the best horses bred on the cross?
- how have horses on the cross sold at auction?
- how has the cross performed on dirt, turf, and synthetic surfaces?
- what is the average winning/racing distance for starters bred on the cross?
- is the cross more successful with its colts or its fillies?
- what is the level of inbreeding in the mating?
- how closely related are sire and dam?
The inbreeding coefficent of a mating is one of the newest statistics in TrueNicks reports and is included in the table below for interest's sake (read more on inbreeding coefficient). Average distance raced (ADR) and average winning distance (AWD) are the averages for all horses bred on the cross and are shown in furlongs. Typically when AWD is greater than ADR, it is a sign of a stamina-oriented cross, an important consideration for the 12-furlong Arc.
