Thoroughbred Breeding

Thoroughbred breeding plays a major part in the horse racing industry. Stallions and mares are no longer appreciated just for their potential as active race horses but are valued equally, if not more, for their potential as future breeding studs and broodmares.

The pedigree of thoroughbred horses has assumed a role of great importance, influencing choices made by bookmakers, punters and even trainers and jockeys. Thoroughbred race horses are judged by their own performances as well as by the racing histories of their studs and broodmares; showing the power of pedigree in the horse racing world.

By the same token, not every thoroughbred race horse is necessarily deemed fit to be breeding material. Race horses are monitored throughout their careers and their futures as studs or broodmares depends very much on their performances. Runners who consistently perform well during their active track years, stand to be sought after as breeding studs and mares after they retire from racing. However, horses who fail to make an impression might go through retirement without pro-creating at all.
