Estimated size: 5 to 7 full pages of text with 6 to 10 additional pages of accompanying pedigree charts and hypothetical matings, varying with each report.
The body of the report is in three main parts. The first part is a brief discussion of the stallion's record on the track and as a breeding animal, and those of his sire, dam, and immediate family. This is to determine any patterns of aptitude (age of maturity, best distance, racing surface, soundness) and possible nicks. Special attention is paid to the stud record of his sire for clues to best bloodline crosses, since these often reflect the genetic strengths and favored inbreeding patterns in that half of the pedigree.
The second part is a more in-depth look at the stallion's ancestry from his six generation pedigree, which is supplied with the report. Again, patterns are noted regarding the closeness and frequency of inbreeding and other patterns in ancestry that might be significant, such as full or half siblings or close genetic relatives. Key bloodlines are then pinpointed that appear to be important in the stallion's genetic make-up.
The third part is a summary of the key strains and best potential nicks that should work best with this stallion, and suggested sources available in the population. Hypothetical matings are provided for the top potential broodmare sires.
