Clients Produce a Great Foal

There's nothing more vital to the success of a breeding operation than choosing the right stallion for a mare. Not only must the mating produce a colt or filly with commercial appeal...it's also necessary to have a well-made individual, whether to command top prices at auction or race with success.

When advising clients on matings, Brinkerhoff Bloodstock considers not only stallions that will have yearling market "sizzle" two years down the road, but stallions that also blend well with the mare to improve any of the mare's conformation faults.

Brinkerhoff Bloodstock reviews pedigree information on the mare herself to see how her family has crossed with certain sire lines; studies the success potential of a cross with a particular stallion; and most importantly, personally inspects both the mare and the stallion to produce the best possible conformation in the resulting foal.

The goal? Quite simply to produce a correct and well-built individual that has the potential to sell for top dollar and become a stakes winner.

Last year alone BBS mating success stories in the Standardbred market came about after Bruce recommended the matings which resulted in two $100,000-plus yearling sales. Lady Winona (Credit Winner-Ladylind) brought $155,000 and Ideal Donato (Donato Hanover-New Ideal) $130,000 in the Northwood Bloodstock consignment at Harrisburg.

Bruce also arranged the matings that produced Yonkers Trot winner Dewycolorintheline 3,Q1:53.3 ($442,587), recent multiple stakes winner Beachy Girl p,2,1:51 ($378,827), and many more.

On the Thoroughbred side, Bruce has recommended matings to Tapit (prior to his ascent to Champion sire), and Lemon Drop Kid (in his early years—at a lower stud fee).
