    Default tb stallion pedigree- good lines for jumpers?

    hey Pedigree and sport horse breeders I am interested in what you think about the lines of this stallion I came across the other day. He seems to have a nice group of sport horse lines, but what I do not really know much about is the position of the ancestors. good or bad.

    The stallion got my maiden mare pregnant on the first cover of the year for him. They did and excellent job getting it done.

    Viareggio looks to be a very good jumping line prospect. His pedigree is impeccable and I LOVE his tail female line. To my thinking his bottom side, which has produced excellent jumps and jumps racing horses, is better than his topside. Although the topside side isn't chopped liver, since Caerleon is often thought to have been Nijinsky's best son. Caerleon on top of a Mill Reef mare was his best jumps racing son, and Caerleon's jumps racing get are tough as nails by US Standards.

    If you're in Illinois you should also consider Roanoke, who has produced jumping horses in eventing, steeplechasing and either hunters or show jumpers. He's old, relatively cheap now, and gives you Ribot tail male and Sea Bird as damsire. The tail female line is one of America's best, going back to Gallopade, an 1840's or 1850's import, with many productive female descendants since.

    Default thx

    Tidy - I love your foal, I have enjoyed watching him,,over and over! Although I am staying away from Mr. p as the one mare already has him, I will check him out for another one I have.


    Viney,
    Thanks for your thoughts. It was his mare line that caught my eye. I will check out Roanoke.

    Northern Baby (Northern Dancer) has done well siring 'chasers. Others on there with jump are Round Table, Hail To Reason, Vaguely Noble, Sir Gaylord and Never Bend........so a nice group for sporthorse-dom.

    As Viney said, Roanoke is also a good choice in your area. He stood for 5K when he was here in PA and got a lot of mares for both race and show and was also bred to WBs. There are a lot of his offspring as sporthorses......I have a several Roanoke grandkids. Roanoke throws big>around 16.3H+> offspring, FYI. I know his fee took a big drop when his owner here died and he moved to the midwest.
