While not a fan of the DI for a while, there's no question of his capabilities and contributions. He'll be missed.

A lot of food for thought in that letter.

Hear, hear!

I've been beguiled by this sport even longer than Steve and totally agree with what he says and with what we've both seen. Over the years Steve has been a willing and generous correspondent. That his disenchantment was becoming palpable was sadly evident -- and mutual.

So sorry to see him go. I would hope that some budding pedigree aficionado might want to study his work to continue with it.

Hi Madelyn,
JJ Vullier and Franco Varola were the early pioneers of dosage then Romans furthered their work in the States and it became very popular after Leon Rasmussen introduced it into his bloodlines column in the DRF. Romans work will continue with his UK associate Steve Miller, who has worked with Romans in the creation of chef-de-race stallions for the past 20 years. Here's a little article from a couple years back that speaks of Steve Millers contribution to dosage. TJ

Thanks TJ as I am getting pretty ancient myself I find myself worrying about the future of all that great data. While much of it has subjective limitations, it provides newbies with some kind of starting point.

Steve Roman's book, "Dosage: Pedigree & Performance", revised and updated through this year's TC races, is now available as a free download in pdf format at http://saroman7.wixsite.com/dosage.

I missed this posting and news when it occurred last year. Curious to know why he retired. I went to his website today to see if (or when) Galileo was added asa Chef-de-Race and was shocked to see the entire website down.

Perchance, did anyone save a copy of this that they can email to me or post here?

I wish I had printed a copy. Maybe someone else did?

It was an eloquent letter and as I recall expressed dismay over the current state of racing.
