GENETICS AND MAGIC IN BREEDING

I often theorize on how to breed successful cutting horses. Elaine Hall told me that all horses cost the same to breed, feed, shod, train and show etc. and the cheapest expense will be the actual horse. And she recommended buying the best mare I could afford and breed her to the best stallions. I want to breed for champions! There are innumerable variables that make proving a breeding technique a success. It will take six years for a breeding plan and resultant foal to grow and compete through the four year old derby competitions. A career can end with an injury, or more subtly by a decision to pair the right horse with the wrong trainer. Quarter Horses News publishes the top breeders and obviously those individuals know something worth tapping into to.

Federico Tesio was a top breeder of thoroughbreds. His book "Breeding the Racehorse" was published in 1958. He wrote, "besides the material contribution of rational feed, fresh air, freedom, and exercise which all make up the best conditions for raising a good athlete, I can see three factors which contribute to his development: 1) – inbreeding, 2) - "Nicks", or the almost constantly successful matching of certain bloodlines, 3) – Selection of the best quality of stock".

Inbreeding. "Although we cannot reduce the number of a horse’s ancestors, we can select his parents in such a way that one particular ancestor will occupy more than one place in his pedigree, thus ensuring a greater probability that certain desired characteristics will be inherited. Inbreeding is the surest way of obtaining this result, by reducing the number of different ancestors and thereby making it easier to fix or establish their characters. In fact the best form of inbreeding from this point of view is that between twin brothers and sisters". In fact, when Tesio wrote his book he had calculated "so all thoroughbreds in the world today are directly descended from three stallions and about 42 mares".

Nicks. "It is an interesting fact that every now and again two particular strains are found to give their best results when crossed with each other. Generally, this is first discovered by chance, then other breeders follow up the initial success until that particular cross becomes the fashion." A current example is Metallic Cat X Sweet Abra. An older example is Doc Bar x Poco Lena who produced Doc Olena and Dry Doc - both NCHA Futurity Winners.

Selection "is the element which has made the greatest contribution to developing the breed of the thoroughbred. The simple peasant has always reasoned as follows: good with good gives good – bad with bad gives bad – good with bad gives half and half. Likewise breeders, as soon as they could do so, discarded the inferior horses and kept only the best for breeding. The winning horses were kept for breeding, the rest were discarded. Without ignoring it entirely, less attention was paid to the appearance of bone and muscles and more to the order of finish". Examples of Superior Matriarchs: Royal Blue Boon, Autumn Boon, Playboys Ruby, and The Smart Look. Another Superior Matriarch is Stylish Play Lena who produced siblings who were all successful: Hottish, Copperish, Smooth Talkin Style, Pepto Boom, Halreycious, Reydiculous, Reydioactive.
