Thank you for posting that information. I have always wondered about the reliability and relevance of dosage.

I enjoyed having dosage as an extra tool, I wish someone would have taken up the mantel and kept it up to date.

I think that Byron was a little premature in announcing the demise of dosage. You will notice that Pedigree Online has now updated their chefs-de-race list to include the latest updates from our Australia and New Zealand list. You can find out more details on the full list and recent updates on http://www.dosages.com.au. We will be working towards updating the main influences that are missing from our list in the coming months. For those of you who have utilised dosage through the TesioPower program, John Hutchinson worked closely with the developers of that computer resource to create the first ANZ list, and we continue to update this list regularly. With the retirement of Dr Roman, we will look at investigating influences that are perhaps not commonly found in Australasia. With the world though becoming a smaller place, there are many shuttle stallions who have already been classified. The list of course includes Dr Roman's last published list.

In his latest book Roman wrote,

"We apply one absolute criterion to chef-de-race selection. The chef-de-race candidate must be prepotent for aptitudinal type. Furthermore, we must be able to demonstrate his prepotence using statistical analysis. It would be helpful, although not necessary to the analysis if the chef-de-race candidate were a sire of sires or a sire of quality broodmares. In this way we would increase the sample size and show that prepotent influences carry through to successive generations ... The critical factor is enough racing data generated by his runners to allow for a meaningful statistical study."

Please provide the statistical analysis you used in your latest chef-de-race selections.
