Close Inbreeding–Rasmussen Factor–Sales Foals of 1999-2002

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.

Last week I examined sales foals of 2003-2007 and listed all those with both the Rasmussen Factor and close inbreeding. The results were inconclusive. So I decided to go back to sales foals of 1999-2002 and perform the same function. Voila!!!!, here it is.

Listed below are the four stakes winners among sales foals of 1999-2002 who are closely inbred to a female ancestor. Three of them are inbred 3×3. One is inbred 2×4.

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. Next are listed the remaining 136 foals of the same description who are NOT stakes winners. The discussion continues after both lists.

Weekend Surprise was the runaway leader among sales foals of 2003-2007 as the female ancestor most often duplicated, followed by Terlingua. Those two names are not nearly as evident among sales foals of 1999-2002. In fact, the one name most often duplicated is Gold Digger (dam of Mr. Prospector).

These 140 sales foals of 1999-2002 did not contain any sold for $1,000,000+. The closest was Bridgefield (colt by A.P. Indy out of Bering Cruise, by Danzig). He was inbred 3×3 to Lassie Dear, sold for $900,000 as a yearling in 2001, and was unraced.

Despite that one high price, these 140 foals were relatively cheap. They sold for a gross of $6,511,162, an average of $46,508 (just below the overall average of $48,313), a maverage of 154.24 (just above the overall maverage of 150), and a Price Index of 1.03 (1.00 being average).

Four stakes winners from 140 foals is 2.86% (well below the overall figure of 3.76%). The four stakes winners were not particularly good either, averaging 527 Performance Points each (well below the overall average of 626).

So taking both quantity and quality of stakes winners into account, these 140 foals had a PPI (result) of 0.64. They sold for prices about 3% ABOVE average and achieved results about 36% BELOW average. That would not exactly be passing in terms of a letter grade.

So close inbreeding with the Rasmussen Factor is not exactly a magic formula for success. It yielded results (PPIs) of 0.95 for sales foals of 2003-2007 and 0.64 for sales foals of 1999-2002. As I noted last week, that 0.95 was thanks mainly to one nag, Stevie Wonderboy. The true results of this factor are probably closer to 0.64 than to 0.95.
