Well, no luck here either. I guess I will just have to wait until you (or somebody else) comes up with the right answer or until Flanders gives us a hint.
Though not considered to have a fashionable pedigree, he sired 48 stakes winners during his stallion career in Kentucky, including siring the winner of the Kentucky Derby. His line is still active with his grandson siring a major race winner recently.
So the very bottom horse in this horse's pedigree would be Fleet Girl. So this horse's 4th dam is Fleet Girl. But the game is to figure out who's 5th generation pedigree this is.Catalina wrote: ↑Wed Feb 19, 2020 8:40 pmI concede defeat. Not sure if I am going about this the wrong way, or what.
Making a wild, wild guess: Fleet Girl?
so the way I'd do it is, look at the pedigree I posted.
figure out some key horses in the 4th generation
Fairy Bridge (Bold Reason/Special)
Miswaki (Mr. Prospector/Hopespringseternal)
use those to figure out the next generation
3rd generation (while there is a few stallions with that same pedigree)
Sadler's Wells (Northern Dancer/Fairy Bridge)
Urban Sea (Miswaki/Allegretta)
then use those to figure out generation 2:
Galileo (Sadler's Wells/Urban Sea)
Does that make sense?
Yes, sort of. Meaning I will have to plug in these data and try to replicate the steps you outlined. I did, in some of my attempts get all the way to Fairy Bridge, Northern Dancer, and Sadler's Wells on the male side of the pedigree, but then was unable to make the next leap. Between this, that, or the other, the last two weeks have been pretty fragmented, which isn't much help with this sort of mental gymnastics,
