Objective. To take into
account a number of conformation traits, and use them in
a compounding fashion to test their success in matching
the Thoroughbred yearlings likely preferred distance in comparison to
what its breeding suggests. Our previous research has shown mature

Results. A Yearlings preferred

a number of conformation traits.
