So far in this continuing series on close inbreeding I have concentrated on duplications to sires only. The Rasmussen Factor (inbreeding to female ancestors; see previous post) also contains some foals with close inbreeding.
Listed below are the seven stakes winners among sales foals of 2003-2007 who are closely inbred to a female ancestor. Six of them are inbred 3×3. One is inbred 3×2.
Listed for its stakes winner is its name, its pedigree (sire-dam, broodmare sire), the number of Performance Points it earned, the sales information, and the female ancestor duplicated. The discussion continues after this list of seven stakes winners.
Stevie Wonderboy (Stephen Got Even–Heat Lightning, Summer Squall), 1,759 Performance Points, 05T100,000, 3×3 Weekend Surprise.
Saucey Evening (More Than Ready–Jeweled Lady, General Meeting), 668, 07Y160,000, 3×3 Northern Sea.

Idonea (Swain–Ivastar, Alwasmi), 123, 06Y60,000, 3×3 Height of Fashion.
Including these seven stakes winners, a total of 193 foals were closely inbred to a female ancestor: 19 2×3, 11 2×4, six 3×2, 155 3×3, and two 4×2. I included 2×4 and 4×2 because some people think they are the equivalent of 3×3 (although I have my doubts about that personally).
Listed below are the remaining 186 foals closely inbred to a female ancestor. Listed for each foals are its name, pedigree (sire-dam, broodmare sire), sales information, and female ancestor duplicated. I arranged them degree of inbreeding (2×3, 2×4, 3×2, 3×3, 4×2), then alphabetically by the female ancestor duplicated. The discussion resumes at the end of this list.

Stevie Wonderboy was by far the best of the seven stakes winners and was inbred 3×3 to Weekend Surprise, who was very popular. Another 25 foals were also inbred to Weekend Surprise, making her the name most often duplicated in this group.
Included among those 25 was A. P. Elegance (a filly by A.P. Indy out of Beaucette, by Mr. Prospector). A. P. Elegance was inbred 2×4 to Weekend Surprise and sold for $675,000 as a yearling in 2007. She posted a record of 6-1-1-0 for earnings of $39,306.
Weekend Surprise of course was the dam of A.P. Indy. The only other A.P. Indy in this group was Counselled (a colt out of Countess Diana, by Deerhound). Counselled was inbred 3×3 to Lassie Dear and sold for $900,000 as a yearling in 2005. He posted a record of 9-2-1-1 for earnings of $37,360.
Almost all of the inbreeding to Weekend Surprise involved sons of A.P. Indy, not A.P. Indy himself. If you have a sire as good as A.P. Indy, you do not need to resort to gimmicks such as close inbreeding or inbreeding to female ancestors to try to achieve good results.
Terlinga was next most popular after Weekend Surprise. Fifteen foals were inbred to Terlinga (dam of Storm Cat). Not one of those 15 was by Storm Cat himself (ditto my remarks about A.P. Indy). Almost all of the inbreeding to Terlinga involved sons of Storm Cat, not Storm Cat himself.
There was one Storm Cat among these 193 foals. Emerald Cat (a colt out of Heeremandi, by Royal Academy) was inbred 3×3 to Crimson Saint (dam of Terlingua) and was sold for $1,500,000 as a yearling in 2003. He posted a record of 3-0-1-0 for earnings of $23,171 and finished second in the Tetrarch Stakes (G3) in Ireland before being exported to India.
Despite those three high prices, the overall group of 193 foals was not overly expensive. In fact, they sold for prices a little below average. The 193 foals sold for a gross of $9,862,252, an average of $51,100 (below the overall average of $54,140), a maverage of 156.71 (below the overall maverage of 163.11), and a Price Index of 0.96 (1.00 being average).
Seven stakes winners from 193 foals is 3.63% (a bit above the overall figure of 3.4%). Those seven stakes winners were not particularly good, however, averaging only 544 Performance Points apiece, well below the overall average of 610.
So taking both quality and quantity of stakes winners into account, these 193 foals had a PPI (result) of 0.95. So they sold for prices about 4% below average and achieved results about 5% below average, a perfectly normal and expected result.
Actually, I think this group is somewhat flattered by that PPI 0f 0.95. I say that because Stevei Wonderboy (1,759) accounts for almost half of the group’s total of 3,806 Performance Points. Without Stevie Wonderboy that PPI drops to 0.51.
Stevie Wonderboy was champion two-year-old of 2005. He started only once afterward though, finishing second in the San Rafael Stakes (G2) early in his three-year-old season. His oldest foals are three-year-olds of 2012, and he currently ranks 33rd on the list of second-crop stallions by 2012 earnings.
If Stevie Wonderboy is the BEST this group can produce, I am not overly impressed.
To recapitulate, this group of 193 foals closely inbred to female ancestors had results almost exactly in line with it prices, but those results are mainly attributable to one nag, Stevie Wonderboy. So the results are somewhat inconclusive. Perhaps I should go back to sales foals of 1999-2002 and see what its results were??????
