Stakes Bred considers the three main breeding
factors in a pedigree.
Sire, this is based on Sires stud record, as stallions usually have
had large quantities of progeny to race, this is a far more accurate
guide, than his Sire potential, based on his own pedigree & race
Maternal Sire, this is based on the Sires Maternal record, some
Sires are noted for getting good breeding stock from their female
progeny, and this rating will highlight that, alternately if you are

Dam Line, based first on Dams race record, then it produce record,
and finally its breeding. If a dam was un raced its breeding is taken
more seriously. All the first 3 Dams race records, produce and
breeding are considered, with a reducing bias towards the 2nd and
We consider all three lines to be critical, as a horse is likely to
throw to any obvious weakness. As most pedigrees do not include
Maternal Sire information, we suggest you obtain this elsewhere,
software will still analyze Sire & Dam lines regardless of weather
you have this Maternal Sire information.

The main value in program will be in the Dam line assessment, which
will take into account many factors including a bias to the first
Dam and its produce. As dams do not have a lot of foals, there
