Storm Cat Male Line, Kentucky Derby (continued)

If you have followed this blog from the beginning, you know that I usually post something about the Storm Cat male line in the Kentucky Derby shortly after the race each year. Here is how his male line fared in yesterday’s race.

Only two of the 18 starters in yesterday’s Kentucky Derby hailed from the Storm Cat male line (down from six of 19 last year). Firing Line finished second at 9-1. Carpe Diem finished tenth at 7-1. Firing Line is by Line of David, by Lion Heart, by Tale of the Cat, by Storm Cat. Carpe Diem is by Giant’s Causeway, by Storm Cat.

So the Storm Cat male line did not fare too badly yesterday. Overall though, its record in the Kentucky Derby now stands at 46 starts, ZERO wins, four seconds, and two thirds. Needless to say, that is NOT a particularly good record.

Last year’s post on this subject matter is hereby linked.

Storm Cat was by Storm Bird, by Northern Dancer. The Northern Dancer male line has not fared well at all in the Kentucky Derby in recent years. Since 2000 it has been represented by only one Kentucky Derby winner, Big Brown (sire of Dortmund, who finished third yesterday at 4-1) in 2008. I don’t know how many starters the Northern Dancer male line had in this time period, but it was more than a few.

American Pharoah is out of a mare by Yankee Gentleman, by Storm Cat. That is the broodmare sire line, NOT the male line. Storm Cat himself is renowned as a pretty decent broodmare sire. I would not be surprised if he fares pretty well in the broodmare sire line, perhaps even better than in the male line, where he is overrated, in my humble opinion. Perhaps that might be a topic for further research and discussion, Storm Cat in the broodmare sire line.

Dosage is pretty much a dead horse, but in all good conscience I am going to beat it with a stick one more time. American Pharoah has a dosage index (DI) of 4.33. Supposedly that means he is not genetically equipped to win the Kentucky Derby.

American Pharoah (like all horses) has 30 ancestors in his first four generations. His DI of 4.33 is based on only three of those 30 ancestors, Unbridled in the third generation and Fappiano and Exclusive Native in the fourth generation. How ridiculous is that????????

But wait, it gets even better. Mubtaahij has a DI of 1.00 and a CD (center of distribution) of 0.00. Those are the “ideal” dosage numbers and supposedly mean that Mubtaahij was eminently qualified to win the race yesterday. He finished eighth at 14-1.

Mubtaahij’s dosage numbers are based on only two of his 30 ancestors within four generations (Mr. Prospector and Shirley Heights, both in the fourth generation, both in his sire’s half of the pedigree). How ridiculous is that????????

I suppose that is the beauty of writing about pedigrees. Ridiculous theories abound. Poking fun at them is almost too easy. Sort of like taking candy from a baby.

Most Unlikely Places

Three posts ago I demonstrated that the female line of La Troienne (LT) is vastly overrated. Two posts ago I demonstrated that the female lines of Almahmoud, Best in Show, Bourtai, Courtly Dee, Grey Flight, Knight’s Daughter, Missy Baba, and Rough Shod II are collectively overrated.

Today I present some statistics on 28 other popular female lines. In choosing which female lines to study I tried to select those which had the best chance of selling for high prices and/or producing good results. For this group I placed a little more emphasis on female lines with lots of foals. And also those about whom I was frankly curious.

Originally I set out to study almost 50 female lines, but I narrowed them down to the 28 below who had at least 100 foals each among sales foals of 2008-2111. Among the female lines eliminated because they did not produce at least 100 foals were Aspidistra, Courtesy, Ghazni, Happy Mood, Iltis, Kerala, Lady Pitt, Monade, Natasha, Native Partner, Old Bess, Pat’s Irish, Prayer Bell, Quillopoly, Quite Honestly, Romanita, Scotch Verdict, South Ocean, Stick to Beauty, and T. C. Kitten.

Betty Derr is the third dam of Courtly Dee (already studied). The 166 foals I list below under Betty Derr do NOT include any Courtly Dee. They include everything else NOT through Courtly Dee. They are the same female line, but I treated them separately because I suspected that they might have very different results.

The same is true of the mother-daughter combinations Escutcheon-Bourtai (already studied) and Good Example-Exclusive. Escutcheon below does NOT include any Bourtai. It includes everything else that is NOT Bourtai. Good Example below does NOT include any Exclusive. It includes everything else that is NOT Exclusive. They are the same female lines, but I treated them separately because I suspected that they might have very different results.

For each mare below I have listed her number of foals, average price, maverage, and Price Index. They are listed by descending order of maverage (most expensive ones first).

Usually I do a separate table to show racetrack results. Today I am skipping a few steps and showing PPI (result) right next to Price Index. That way you can see at a glance which female lines outperformed their prices and which underperformed their prices. For example, Bold Irish has a Price Index of 1.44 and a PPI (result) of 1.50, a very slightly positive result relative to her prices. Discussion resumes at the end of the table below.

Mare                    Foals          Average          Maverage          Price Index      PPI (Result)

Bold Irish               111           $94,385             221.26                   1.44                   1.50

Betty Derr            166         $48,427            158.40                        1.03                     0.73

Alablue                 166         $45,023            154.13                         1.00                     2.85

Boudoir II            223         $44,449            150.32                       0.98                     0.37

Portage                 231         $41,840            147.20                        0.96                     0.94

Escutcheon         198          $40,961            146.89                        0.95                     0.98

Bloodroot            173          $35,946 2         141.28                        0.92                      1.03

Imperatrice         123         $36,381             136.02                       0.88                      0.69

Good Example    115          $33,089            130.30                       0.85                      4.39

Of the 28 female lines listed, 22 have Price Indexes of 1.00 (average) or higher. Six have Price Indexes below 1.00 (Boudoir II, Portage, Escutcheon, Bloodroot, Imperatrice, and Good Example). Those six names are not exactly unknowns in pedigree circles.

Twelve of the 28 have PPIs (results) below 1.00. Sixteen have PPIs (results) above 1.00.

Fourteen of the 28 have higher PPIs than Price Indexes (the desired result). Thirteen have PPIs lower than their Price Indexes (the undesired result). Queen Nasra was 1.32 on both scores.

I do not wish to belabor these individual results too much. I am more interested in the collective results for all 28 female lines. Their collective prices are listed below.

Female Lines                    Foals          Average          Maverage          Price Index

Alablue . . . Soaring         4,368         $57,339             173.99                    1.13

The average for these 4,368 foals ($57,339) is well above the overall average of $46,418). Ditto for the maverage (173.99, compared to 154.0). Their Price Index of 1.13 is slightly below that of La Troienne (1.15) and of the ABBCGKMR group (1.25).

Below are the collective results for these 4,368 foals. APPPSW stands for average Performance Points per stakes winner (665 now being average).

Female Lines                     Foals          SWs          %          APPPSW          PPI (Result)

Alablue . . . Soaring          4,368          144         3.30            911                      1.39

So these 4,368 foals have a Price Index of 1.13 and a PPI (result) of 1.39. They sold for prices about 13% above average and achieved results about 39% above average. That is an excellent result. Let us compare it to the previous two groups studied.

Female Lines                    Foals          Price Index          PPI (Result)

La Troienne                       1,108                 1.15                       0.96

ABBCGKMR                      1,400                1.25                       1.06

Alablue . . . Soaring          4,368                1.13                        1.39

To recapitulate, the previous two groups had results well below their prices (LT price of 1,15 and result of 0.96; ABBCGKMR price of 1.25 and result of 1.06). These 28 mares did exactly the opposite (price of 1.13 and result of 1.39). These 28 mares kicked the shit out of LT and ABBCGKMR.

It is important to understand WHY these 28 mares achieved such good results. Their 3.30% stakes winners from foals is barely above average (now 3.25%). Their APPPSW of 911 was 37% above the overall average of 665. So their excellent results are attributable not to the quantity of their stakes winners, but to their quality. They hit quite a few home runs.

Fourteen of their 144 stakes winners had 2,000+ Performance Points, and they are listed below in descending order (best ones first).

Lookin At Lucky (Smart Strike–Private Feeling, Belong to Me), 6th dam Pandora, 09T475,000, 6,207 Performance Points.

Beholder (Henny Hughes–Leslie’s Lady, Tricky Creek), 5th dam Patelin, 11Y180,000, 6,068.

Secret Circle (Eddington–Ragtime Hope, Dixieland Band), 6th dam Lea Lark, 11T165,000, 5,171.

I’ll Have Another (Flower Alley–Arch’s Gal Edith, Arch), 5th dam Patelin, 10Y11,000, 4,194.

To Honor and Serve (Bernardini–Pilfer, Deputy Minister), 5th dam Golden Trail, 08W250,000, 3,699.

Musical Romance (Concorde’s Tune–Candlelight Dinner, Slew Gin Fizz), 7th dam Good Example, 09T22,000, 3,582.

Turbulent Descent (Congrats–Roger’s Sue, Forestry), 6th dam Nangela, 10T160,000, 3,312.

Grace Hall (Empire Maker–Season’s Greetings, Ezzoud), 7th dam Nellie Flag, 10Y95,000, 2,946.

Evening Jewel (Northern Afleet–Jewel of the Night, Giant’s Causeway), 8th dam Lea Lark, 08Y8,000, 2,821.

Regal Ransom (Distorted Humor–Kelli’s Ransom, Red Ransom), 6th dam Alablue, 8T675,000, 2,495.

Lady of Shamrock (Scat Daddy–Blushing Issue, Blushing John), 5th dam Legendra, 10Y80,000, 2,450.

Twilight Eclipse (Purim–My Twilight Dancer, Twilight Agenda), 5th dam Alablue, 10Y1,000, 2,448.

Dance to Bristol (Speightstown–Dance to Dawn, Louis Quatorze), 4th dam Exclusive, 11T42,000, 2,281.

Devil May Care (Malibu Moon–Kelli’s Ransom, Red Ransom), 6th dam Alablue, 08Y110,000, 2,224.

Alablue had three of these 14 stakes winners (Twilight Eclipse, Regal Ransom, and Devil May Care, the latter two out of the same mare). Those three contributed heavily to Alablue’s PPI of 2.85.

Patelin had two of these 14 stakes winners (champions Beholder and I’ll Have Another, both with Last Bird as their fourth dam and Patelin as their fifth dam). Those two contributed heavily to Patelin’s PPI of 3.82.

Lea Lark had two of these 14 stakes winners (Secret Circle and Evening Jewel). Those two contributed heavily to Lea Lark’s PPI of 1.90.

With an average of only $33,089 and maverage of only 130.30 (Price Index of 0.85), Good Example was the cheapest of these 28 mares. She also had the highest PPI (4.39). Musical Romance (3,582 Performance Points) contributed to this result. But even without Musical Romance, Good Example still has a PPI of 2.95. Not just a one-hit wonder.

Frankly, I do not know what to make of these results. If some female lines do produce superior results, I suspect it is because of quality of stakes winners, not quantity. They hit a lot more home runs than they should.

If some female lines do produce superior results, you will not find them in the most obvious places (La Troienne, etc.). You might find them in the most unlikely places (Good Example, etc.). If you find them at all, you will have to spend a lot of time “Dark as a Dungeon” in order to do so.

An Obituary and an Odd Friendship

I was saddened to read a few days ago of the death of Hall of Fame trainer H. Allen Jerkens. Of all the upsets he engineered in his long and illustrative career, the 1973 Woodward Stakes stands out in my mind. It was one of my favorite races of all time.

I was a freshman at Kenyon College (Gambier, Ohio) in late September of 1973. I moseyed over to the commons late one Saturday afternoon to watch this race on television. There I was joined by Tim Blowhard (not his real name, but the name says it all; you know the type). We both lived in the same dorm (Norton Zoo) freshman year and eventually pledged to the same frat (Assholes, Derelicts, and Perverts).

TB turned out to be a BIG fan of Secretariat. Me, not so much. Secretariat was 2-5 or 3-10 (can’t remember which) that day in the 1973 Woodward. Among his foes was Prove Out, a son of Graustark (of whom I was somewhat fond) trained by H. Allen Jerkens.

I opined that Secretariat was an underlay at the odds. TB disagreed. The usual negotiations followed. I offered to book him at those odds. He demurred, saying “I don’t want to take your money” or some such bullshit.

Prove Out absolutely loved the sloppy going that day. The distance (a mile and a half) was right up his alley as well. He won by four lengths over an undertrained Secretariat. TB stormed off. I laughed and giggled.

“Too bad he didn’t take that wager,” I heard a voice behind me.

“Ah, he’s the kind of asshole who wouldn’t have paid up anyway,” I replied before even checking out the owner of this voice.

The owner of this voice turned out to be a reasonably attractive female. She was skinny as a rake and not very well endowed on top, but I kinda like them that way. “More than a mouthful is too much.”

We watched the recap of the race and chatted for a bit. Turned out her name was Amy, and she was a senior from Newton, Massa-Two-Shits. We went downstairs to dinner together and continued babbling on racing topics.

If this were a fairy tale, we fell in love and eventually got married and lived happily ever after, progeny and all. Life is usually a bit more complicated than fairy tales. No such fairy tale ensued.

It was the beginning of a somewhat odd friendship though. Odd mainly because she was a senior and I was a lowly freshman.

The thing that fueled the friendship was the nags of course. Turned out that she was a Bland-Horse subscriber. I preferred the Thoroughbred Rectum myself. So naturally we had to meet once a week and exchange magazines and opinions about the contents thereof. As well as the relative merits and deficits of the two magazines. There were not many people around the campus at that time (or any other time) who were as intensely interested in the nags as we were. Maybe it was only ONE THING we had in common, but it was the MOST IMPORTANT thing.

This did not lead to any ROMANCE, however. She made her opinion on that pretty clear from the start. She was a senior. I was a freshman. She was Jewish. I was Catholic. And never the twain shall meet (nor kiss nor whatever comes after that). I accepted her terms of friendship.

Come spring of the next year (1974) she started dragging me out to the tennis court with her. She was a decent player (varsity at a small high school). I had never played before at all. She did not exactly offer me any instructions. She explained the rules. She hit a ball at me. I tried to hit it back. It took me awhile to be able to hit it back with any consistency at all.

Of course she beat me mercilessly the first few times we played (and she insisted on keeping score). But I gradually got better. I never did develop a backhand that spring, but I was young and could still run like a deer, and so I ran around the court and hit everything with my forehand.

I gradually got better. The scores got closer. She had to expend more energy to beat me. I actually beat her the last time we played that spring (one set only; one set was usually all we could manage; and this set I won took a LONG time to be resolved).

It was near the end of the school year. She was graduating in a week or two. I had to go home for the summer before graduation. We went to several parties together that night (after I finally beat her at tennis). She got a little more inebriated than usual (I got WASTED as usual).

To make a long story short, she relieved me of my virginity that night. I was never much of a lady’s man. It came as pretty much a surprise to me. I was not complaining. I hope she had no cause for complaint either.

She graduated. I went home to Cincinnati for the summer. I wrote her a few times and vice versa. The last I heard she was getting married. I sent her a subscription to the Thoroughbred Rectum as a wedding present.

This story has come a long way from the death of H. Allen Jerkens. He was renowned for all the major upsets that he pulled (though he was a GREAT trainer even without all those upsets).

But when I think of H. Allen Jerkens, I think about Prove Out and Secretariat in the 1973 Woodward. And about the odd friendship of Amy and Davey in the fall of 1973 and spring of 1974.

Almahmoud, Best in Show, Bourtai, Courtly Dee, Grey Flight, Knight’s Daughter, Missy Baba, Rough Shod II

The La Troienne (LT) female line came up with an other stakes winner recently. That is Fair Grounds Handicap (G3) winner Chocolate Ride (Candy Ride–Heatherdoesntbluff, Old Trieste, sold for $260,000 as a yearling in 2011, 362 Performance Points).

That does not change the prices, but it does change the results (PPI) a little. The PPI (result) for the 1,108 foals with LT in the female line increases from 0.94 to 0.96 (0.944 to 0.958, if you want to get technical). All my previous posts on the LT female line among sales foal of 2008-2111 have been updated accordingly.

I came across Chocolate Ride as I was preparing some statistics on the female lines of the eight broodmares named in the title above (Almahmoud, Best in Show, Bourtai, Courtly Dee, Grey Flight, Knight’s Daughter, Missy Baba, and Rough Shod II, hereafter to be referred to as the ABBCGKMR group).

I chose these eight mares for examination because I thought their female lines had the best chance of selling for high prices and/or producing good results. These eight mares are renowned for their female lines and should be familiar to all readers. Listed below are the individual prices for this group.

Female Line           Foals          Average          Maverage          Price Index

Almahmoud             182            $50,592            165.53                  1.07

Best in Show            104            $68,089            194.61                 1.26

Bourtai                     363             $69,108            190.21                 1.24

Courtly Dee               81             $133,090          263.74                 1.71

Grey Flight              230            $64,399            187.42                 1.22

Knight’s Daughter  135             $67,539            187.57                 1.22

Missy Baba              139             $106,360         250.34                1.63

Rough Shod II        166             $44,028           153.34                1.00

Totals                      1,400           $70,128            192.47               1.25

The overall average for all 45,562 sales foals of 2008-2111 was $46,418. All eight mares exceeded that figure except for Rough Shod II ($44,028). The overall maverage for all sales foals of 2008-2111 was 154.0. All eight mares exceeded that figure except for Rough Shod II (153.34).

In my last post I speculated why most people accept the rise and fall of male lines but not of female lines. It appears to me that most buyers are giving up on the Rough Shod II female line, accepting that its time has come and gone.

Listed below are the 46 stakes winners in this ABBCGKMR group. Listed for each stakes winner are its name, pedigree (sire–dam, broodmare sire), sales information, and number of Performance Points it earned. They are listed in descending order of Performance Points under their individual female lines. Discussion resumes after the list below.

Rough Shod II has a Price Index of 1.00 and a PPI (result) of 0.86 (see its seven stakes winners listed above from 166 foals). It appears that buyers were correct in giving up on Rough Shod II. Those 166 foals sold for prices very close to average and produced results about 14% below average.

The most expensive of the eight mares was Courtly Dee (average of $133.090, maverage of 263.74, and Price Index of 1.71). Based on its three stakes winners (listed above) from 81 foals, that works out to a PPI of 1.10, which does NOT compare favorably to its price of 1.71. Those 81 foals sold for prices about 71% above average and achieved results about 10% above average.

Missy Baba was not far behind Courtly Dee in terms of prices, and the other six were well behind those two. Missy Baba had an average of $106,360, a maverage of 250.34, and a Price Index of 1.63. Based on its nine stakes winners (listed above) from 139 foals, that works out to a PPI (result) of 3.21, which compares very favorably to its price of 1.63. These 139 foals sold for prices about 63% above average and achieved results about 221% above average.

Among those nine stakes winners was Horse of the Year Havre de Grace (4,586 Performance Points), which is the main reason Missy Baba fared so well. Without Havre de Grace this group’s PPI drops to 1.70, much more in line with its price of 1.63.

The third dam of Havre de Grace is Toll Booth. Five of the nine stakes winners listed under Missy Baba trace to Toll Booth. So does Belmont Stakes winner Tonalist (who is not part of this study group; he was a $195,000 RNA as a yearling in 2012). Most people think of Weekend Surprise as the best scion of Missy Baba in the female line. It appears that momentum has shifted in favor of Toll Booth over Weekend Surprise.

I did not list the individual results for the eight mares. You have their number of foals and their stakes winners listed. You can work it out from there if you are so inclined. I was more interested in the composite results for these eight mares than their individual results.

Listed below are the composite prices for these eight mares.

Mare                        Foals           Average          Maverage     Price Index

Totals                      1,400           $70,128            192.47               1.25

Listed below are the composite results for these eight mares. APPPSW stands for average Performance Points per stakes winner, a measure of the quality of stakes winners involved (661 being average).

Foals          Stakes Winners          %          APPPSW          PPI (Result)

1,400                   46                       3.29             688                   1.06

The overall percentage of stakes winners from foals for all sales foals of 2008-2111 was 3.24%. This group is slightly better at 3.29%. It is also slightly better by APPPSW (688 to 661). So its overall PPI (result) is 1.06. That is not bad in absolute terms, but it is not good relative to its price of 1.25.

Let us compare this group to LT in terms of prices versus results.

Group               Foals          Price Index          PPI (Result)

LT                      1,108                 1.15                      0.96

ABBCGKMR    1,400                1.25                      1.06

See the similarity???? ABBCGKMR has prices 0.10 higher than LT (1.25 to 1.15). It also has results 0.10 higher than LT (1.06 to 0.96). In both cases the difference between prices and results is 0.19. That is an approximate measure of how much each group was similarly overvalued.

SO LT is not the only female line that the market overvalues. The same is true of ABBCGKMR collectively. From which one might tentatively conclude that the market pays more attention to female lines than they really deserve.

A few more observations are in order. You see these eight names duplicated in pedigrees (Rasumussen Factor) rather frequently (particularly Almahmoud). One reason RF does not work is because you are duplicating names that have no positive value to them (at last not relative to their prices).

And at the risk of being repetitious, I will say again that female lines are purely a play on names in pedigrees. They have nothing to do with the racing/producing class of the sires and dams involved. This is what happens when you concentrate on names in pedigrees. You pay more than you should for the results you actually receive.

I am working on some other female lines as well. Perhaps I will post on them at a later date (unless you readers want to persuade me that enough is enough, that I have made my case against the obsession with female lines quite convincingly already).

“Dark as a Dungeon”

Why is it that most people accept that male lines rise and fall? Yet when it comes to female lines, they do not seem to accept that at all? These are some of the questions that occurred to me as I posted this series on the La Troienne (LT) female line. I think I may have an answer or two.

When male lines fail, they do not just deteriorate, they disappear. Take the leading sire lists in North America from 1930 to 1953, for example. The sire lists of that period were led four times by Sir Gallahad III, once by his full brother Bull Dog, and five times by Bull Lea (a son of Bull Dog).

That sire line, once so successful, has disappeared now. And no one laments its passing. No one goes on and on about how “magic” those names still are in pedigrees (as opposed to LT).

In contrast, female lines deteriorate but never really disappear. The female line of LT, for example, continues to produce a goodly number of stakes winners. As long as it does so, people fail to realize that its results have actually deteriorated over time when compared to the number of foals it produces (the latter of which is the missing factor in the equation that most people just seem to ignore rather blithely).

Of the 70,714 sales foals of 2003-2007, just over 60% were from either the Northern Dancer male line (21,420) or the Mr. Prospector male line (21,115). That is pretty typical of how numerically dominant male lines are.

There is no argument that LT is the dominant female line in North American breeding, at least numerically, even today. Nothing else even comes close. My guess is that Escutcheon (including her daughter Bourtai) would be next. Or maybe Etoile Filante (1918 by Fair Play out of Chit Chat), who is even older than LT (a foal of 1926).

Yet dominant as it is, the LT female line accounts for only a little over 2.4% of the entire population among both sales foals of 2003-2007 and sales foals of 2008-2011. Female lines are nowhere near as dominant numerically as male lines. That is just the nature of the beast. And probably the reason why female lines never really disappear, while male lines do disappear.

The obsession with male lines is understandable only in terms of academic curiosity. It is a matter of historic interest to see which males lines come to dominate and which ones disappear. But that does NOT mean that a foal from a dominant male line is likely to be any better than any other foal (at least in any statistical sense). It is understandable to think about male lines in macro (historical) terms. But in micro terms (evaluating an individual foal), males lines are just about irrelevant. The only thing they are good for is fodder for advertising BS (pardon the redundancy).

(From a genetic point of view, the sire of the sire is no more important than the broodmare sire. Or the dam of the sire. Or the second dam.)

And the same is true of female lines. They are interesting historically (macro terms), but they are just about irrelevant in micro terms (evaluating an individual foal, as I just demonstrated with LT). Just because a male line or female line has the most numbers does NOT necessarily mean that it is any good. Sometimes quite the opposite. The most popular male and female lines frequently become the victims of their own (perceived) successes.

For whatever reasons, male lines are a lot more visible to most people than female lines. Male lines are sort of like the alphabet. You have to learn the alphabet before you can learn to read. And many people never learn to read at all. They never progress beyond the alphabet (male lines).

Another difference between male and female lines is the availability of statistics. You can find plenty of free statistics online on just about any sire. And if you are willing to pay $$$$, you can find quite detailed and esoteric statistics on just about any sire.

Finding statistics on female lines????? Good luck!!!!!

As far as I know, no organization routinely generates statistics on female lines via the computer. If you want to evaluate one particular female line, you can pay through the nose for a computer product on that line and then assimilate all the data and crunch all the numbers yourself.

If you want to evaluate more than one female line, you can acquire auction reviews and wade through thousands of foals one by one (sort of like the Johnny Cash song “One Piece at a Time”). Personally, I prefer the latter approach.

I believe this is the biggest reason why people have been reluctant to accept the fact that female lines rise and fall (albeit not quite as drastically as male lines rise and fall and sometimes disappear). Because statistics on female lines are very few and far between.

Particularly GOOD statistics on female lines. By which I mean statistics that include the number of foals involved, not just the number of stakes winners. As you may have heard me rant before, too many statistics are based on stakes winners only without any reference to the number of foals involved. The former is virtually meaningless without the latter.

So people see that the LT female lines is still producing Judy the Beautys and conclude erroneously that the name LT is still “magic” in pedigrees. It may have been “magic” at one point in time (through the 1970s or so), but even then only in the female line itself. As I just demonstrated, even the LT female line is actually below average now and well below average compared to its prices.

It takes hard WORK and EFFORT to generate viable statistics on female lines. You have to hunker down into the data mines and dig out those foals one by one. God forbid that any pedigree “expert” should have to stoop to WORK or EFFORT to substantiate his opinions. It is so much easier just to spout unsubstantiated drivel.

The name of the song is “Dark as a Dungeon.” Merle Travis wrote it. Johnny Cash did a pretty good version of it.

“Where the rain never falls, the sun never shines

It’s dark as a dungeon way down in the mines.”

“Gates of Eden”

OK, I have posted the 34 stakes winners tracing to La Troienne (LT) in the female line from among sales foals of 2008-2111. I have posted all other foals tracing to LT in the female line from among sales foals of 2008-2111. Now is time to get down to the nitty-gritty.

If those 34 stakes winners were produced from 500 foals, that would be an excellent result. If those 34 stakes winners were produced from 1,000 foals, that would be a good result.

In fact these 34 stakes winners were produced from 1,108 foals. The prices for those 1,108 foals are listed below, compared to the prices for the 1,738 foals tracing to LT in the female line from among sales foals of 2003-2007 (see earlier post).

Sales Foals of                Foals          Average          Maverage          Price Index

2008-2111                      1,108           $66,667            177.43                   1.15

2003-2007                     1,738          $65,754            175.88                   1.08

The total number of foals tracing to LT in the female line declined from 1,738 in 2003-2007 to 1,108 in 2008-2111. That does not mean that the prevalence of LT has declined precipitously.

Those 1,738 foals were 2.46% of the total of 70,714 foals in 2003-2007 (five years). Those 1,108 foals were 2.43% of the total of 45,562 foals in 2008-2111 (four years). So the prevalence of LT in the female line declined very slightly, not precipitously.

The average price for all foals in the LT female line increased slightly from $65,574 in 2003-2007 to $66,667 in 2008-2111. The maverage also increased slightly from 175.88 to 177.43.

The overall average for all 70,714 foals in 2003-2007 decreased from $54,140 to $46,418 for all 45,562 foals in 2008-2111. The maverage decreased similarly from 163.11 to 154.0. So the Price Index increased from 1.08 in 2003-2007 to 1.15 in 2008-2111. The 1,738 foals of 2003-2007 sold for prices about 8% above average. The 1,108 foals of 2008-2111 sold for prices about 15% above average. So the LT female line increased from 2003-2007 to 2008-2111 in terms of popularity (prices paid).

Now let us examine the results for the LT female line in 2008-2111. APPPSW in the chart below stands for average Performance Points per stakes winner, a measure of the quality of stakes winners involved (661 being average).

Foals          Stakes Winners          %          APPPSW          PPI (Result)

1,108                     34                     3.07            669                     0.96

The overall percentage of stakes winners from foals in 2008-2011 was 3.24% (1,476 of 45,562). The LT female line was below that at 3.07% (34 of 1,108). The LT female line did have 669 APPPSW, slightly better than the overall average of 661.

Taking both quantity and quality of stakes winners into account, these 1,108 foals had a PPI (result) of 0.96. That does not compare well with their Price Index of 1.15. They sold for prices about 15% ABOVE average and achieved results about 4% BELOW average. They distinctly underperformed.

Now let us compares prices and results for 2003-2007 versus the same for 2008-2111.

Sales Foals of          Foals          Price Index          PPI (Result)

2003-2007               1,738                1.08                     0.92

2008-2111                 1,108                 1.15                     0.96

The LT female line did increase its PPI (results) from 0.92 on 2003-2007 to 0.96 in 2008-2111. Its prices increased even more sharply though, from 1.08 to 1.15. Therefore, the gap between the two (amount of underperformance) increased from 0.16 to 0.19. The LT female line performed even worse relative to its prices in 2008-2111 than in 2003-2007.

It should not come as any surprise to any rational person that LT is actually below average. After all, she was a foal of 1926.

You might be wondering why I confined myself to the female line in evaluating LT. The main reason is that I knew from previous research that LT has her BEST results in the female line and her worse results in all the other possible places in pedigrees. See La Troienne (“Talking World War III Blues”).

So I was giving her the benefit of the doubt by concentrating on the places in pedigrees in which she had had the BEST results in the past. LT appears in many more places in pedigrees than just the female line. Anyone want to wager that she has good results in these other places????

Also bear in mind that the worship of “Saint” LT is strictly a play on names in pedigrees alone (has nothing to do with the racing and/or producing class of the sires and dams involved). This is what happens when you place pedigree above racing/producing class. This is what happens when you concentrate on one name in pedigrees and attempt to canonize her. You pay above-average prices for below-average results.

I do not think that this obsession with LT developed naturally. Rational people did not look at the evidence and all come to the same conclusion independently, that LT is somehow “magic.”

No, what happened is that many so-called pedigree “experts” wrote a lot of drivel (to put it charitably) about LT. Many people read that drivel. An “expert” said it was so. Therefore, it must be true (and no one was producing any evidence to the contrary). So it came to be accepted as dogma that the name LT is “magic” in pedigrees.

We live in a world full of propaganda. LT is an excellent example of the power of propaganda.

But dogma and propaganda are both still bullshit. At least this particular dogma and propaganda, if not all others. There are no saints outside the “Gates of Eden.”
