Bloodlines: Round Table Makes A Return With Iselin Winner

Have you wondered whatever happened to Round Table in pedigrees, especially in the male line?

Bloodlines: Living In Galileo’s World

Another day, another Galileo classic winner. With 12 of the 13 racers in the 2019 Derby Stakes at Epsom tracing to Galileo as a son, grandson, or great-grandson, there was little doubt that more good news was brewing for the sire in the English classic.

Bloodlines: War Front Sends A Pair Of Derby Contenders Into Battle Again

Six months ago, some Thoroughbred owners and buyers would have wavered on the question of buying a young prospect by the distinguished Claiborne Farm sire War Front (by Danzig) due to the misperception that he was a “turf sire.” The versatile sire had more recently had major successes with numerous racers in Europe, where the […]
