Well Favorite Bid is now 1500 in FL. I don't see any working photos now so can't comment on confo. Aside from things already mentioned like gray color and stud fee at the original 2500 being unattractive to colored horse sport breeders, my big thing is confo. Sport breeders are much pickier about foot and leg correctness on the whole. There are only a handful of sport proven TBs around, never mind colored ones. I looked there first, and either the pedigree ruled them out ( there were certain ones I wanted to avoid for various reasons...Mr.P, Storm Cat and Hoist The Flag ) or they were not strong in the area I wanted to correct in my mare or they were not within the 6 hour drive I was willing to haul to/ drive to go see.


Camohn,

Very glad to read from you again.
As for Favorite Bid, perhaps he needs more in-house support.
Your point on sport breeders being more pickier on conformation
is absolutely correct.

But with Spectacular Bid there is a "quaere"
issue never proven: why breeders practically never underscored
his two doses coming from To Market and reiterate on
his dose from Promised Land. I guess the answer is that
these two durable proven doses were not guaranteed sources for
precocity.

Thanks again for your always valuable comments.

I do agree his double dose of ToMarket is a likely source of chrome, plus the family has produced good hunters in Sporthorses
