Should we still be obsessed with the percentage of thoroughbred blood?
Updated: Feb 8
Breeding season is upon us and everywhere you see people asking about how much blood they need, what percentage blood they want and which stallions will add 'blood'. But why are we so interested in this one area of breeding? And just how influential is it?
This great article published in 'Insights' magazine looks in detail at the top 100 Event Horses of 2019 and unearths not only the percentage of thoroughbred blood but also the number of top horses with TB sires. I bet the results are not what you think.
