At least for Jess's Dream I can see enough upside to give him a shot in a regional program. He has a reasonably strong family to back him up.... By a 2xHoTY who is currently becoming one of the hot sires of the moment, out of a HoTY who already produced a G1 winner out of 2 foals to race (and whose 2 foals are both winners), and his half sister is a 2yo G1 winner.sweettalk wrote:well, so far, between rachel and zen, i wouldn't breed to the boys of either of them. zen's can't outrun a hibernating turtle (tho her tapit isn't quite as sluggish as her other), and rachel's couldn't stay together to race more than once.
i guess we'll see how it goes in the shed, but...
I remember seeing a yearling photo of Jess's Dream and thinking his legs looked like a tragedy waiting to happen. I guess he just couldn't grow out of them. Hopefully he doesn't pass that on though. If I were a FL breeder I'd definitely consider him but would want to wait to see what his first foals look like.
As much as I love Zenyatta....no. Just no. If either/or/both haven't already been gelded, it needs to happen. >.<
