A high class sprinter, an eye-catching type, a speed pedigree of considerable depth; Yes Yes Yes is a horse that ticks all the boxes and it seems that breeders across the country agree, the son of Rubick in his first season at stud serving an impressive harem of 205 mares. And he has 22 in foal who are either stakes winners or the dams of stakes winners, including one of Australia's best producers Pretty Penny whose seven foals (including the Group winners Sertorius, Clifton Red, Dollar For Dollar and Pretty Brazen) have all earned black-type.

THE South African pedigree guru Charles Faull was rather fond of saying “Every pedigree is a tutorial!”. His enthusiasm was infectious, his knowledge of breeding matters encyclopaedic, and there was much truth in his aphorism. Great thoroughbreds often have interesting pedigrees, in the sense that they can be instructive if close attention is paid, somewhat...

Inbreeding to the family of Narrate serves as a key component within the pedigree of America’s 2018 Triple Crown winner Justify as well as a growing number of other superior individuals. If it were to be asked of this writer to select the American racehorse whose pedigree best exemplifies the value of female family inbreeding...

Thoroughbreds who can demonstrate inbreeding to three different female families within five generations are as rare as hens’ teeth – maybe, even “blue hens’ teeth”.   It really did not take very long for female family inbreeding (FFI) to become my favorite characteristic within a thoroughbred’s pedigree.

It takes a special kind of person to see a gap in the market, then target that niche as a not-for-profit business rather than trying to line their own pockets. Lindy Maurice, the driving force behind Thoroughbred Industry Careers (TIC), is one such lady. TIC is in its third year of shepherding young people with...

An Adelaide father shares with his young son the laborious task of laying concrete down a driveway. To make the time pass more quickly, he has the radio on. As an avid sports fan and keen owner of a couple of thoroughbreds the racing station is his entertainment of choice. He gets his son to...

With COVID’s cloud lurking over a second Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale we talked with the company’s General Manager Bloodstock Sales and Marketing, Sebastian Hutch, to get his perspective on the past 12 months, and what we can look forward to at Riverside in April.

On face value, two of the headline acts among the first-season sires represented at the 2021 Australian Easter Yearling Sale would not appear to have that much in common. But a closer examination of the backgrounds of Coolmore’s Merchant Navy and Newgate’s Russian Revolution reveals some remarkably parallel lines. One degree of separation, you could...
