I found 194 foals among these sales foals of 2003-2007 inbred to Rough Shod II, her daughters (Thong, Gambetta, etc.), or other direct female-line descendants (Special being particularly popular).

Eighteen of these 194 foals were by Kingmambo, which is one reason they sold so well. These 194 foals sold for a gross of $16,553,850, an average of $85,329, and a maverage of 205.88. That is considerably higher than the overall average for all 70,714 foals of $54,140 and the overall maverage of 163.11

Seven of these 194 foals were stakes winners (none by Kingmambo). That is 3.61%, above the overall average of 3.36%.

The 2,373 overall stakes winners averaged 603 Performance Points apiece. These seven stakes winners averaged only 461 Performance Points. Rock Star Show (1,129) was pretty good, but the other six (502, 429, 426, 378, 193, and 170) were all below the average of 603. As a whole they were not a particularly good group of stakes winners.

Hence taking both quantity and quality of stakes winners into account, these 194 foals had a PPI (result) 0f 0.82, well below the overall average of 1.00 despite having prices well above the overall average and maverage. La Troienne had similar results (0.79) from slightly below-average prices.

Now let us consider all foals among this group of sales foals of 2003-2007 with Rough Shod II in their direct female lines regardless of whether they were duplicated. The chart below lists ten stakes winners fitting that description.

Lemon Drop Gal, Storm Allied, and Annihilation appear on both lists.

I apologize because I do not have a handy list of all the foals fitting this description among sales foals of 2003-2007. (Did I just hear a sigh of relief out there?).

I can tell you that there were 260 such foals and that those 260 foals sold for a gross of $18,965,722, an average of $72,945, and a maverage of 200.14. Those figures were higher than the overall average ($54,140) and maverage (163.11) but not as high as for the inbred group (average of $85,329 and maverage of 205.88).

Ten stakes winners from 260 foals is pretty good, better than the 3.36% overall rate. And these stakes winners were actually pretty good, including Corinthian (2,067 Performance Points), Fatal Bullet (1,938), Bandini (1,276), Timber Reserve (1,072), and Don’t Forget Gil (771). Those five were all above the overall average of 603. The other five were all below the overall average of 603. The ten combined for 8,802 Performance Points, an average of 880 each.

So taking both quantity and quality of stakes winners into account, these 260 foals had a PPI (result) of 1.67. They also had a Price Index of 1.23. So they had much better results than the overall average (1.00) and than their prices (1.23). This was a pretty good group.

These two groups were not mutually exclusive. They had some overlaps. The common element was Rough Shod II somewhere in their pedigrees. The first group all had RSII or her descendants duplicated somewhere. The second group did not necessarily have any duplications of RSII or her descendants. The second group was a good value. The first group was a poor value.

What gives????? Inbreeding is supposed to improve results, at least according to everything we have been “taught.” You might want to consider that everything you have been “taught” about inbreeding is a crock of shit. In this particular case inbreeding took good results and transmuted them into poor results.
