    First Stakes winner for Deep Field. No real surprise really.

    The stallion Needs Further only has two runners that carry the pattern, Mystic Journey who is now a Group One winner of just over $1.million and Fiveandfurther winner of his last two starts and around $22,000 so far no slow horses. I think we all understand that any breeding theory will never work all the time, (approx half of Zabeel,s progeny never won a race ) but when they do work a horse of the highest calibre can be the out come. These are the sorts of horses that promote a stallion.

    By studying the past hopefully we can predict the future Here is a link to an interview with Sir Patrick Hogan from Racing.com where he talks about pedigree analysis and bloodlines https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=sir+patrick+hogon+talking+about+sir+tristram This same pattern that I have been referring to was present in Zabeels sire Sir Tristram. And in Sir Tristram's sire Sir Ivor

    I think the first question when it comes to statistics that hasn't been answered in this thread is " should brood-mare owners judge a stallion on its barn storming finish.?' Although my research was over a year ago and without mentioning any names it revealed to me that around 80% of horses (from those high priced stallions) didn't have enough finish in them to earn enough prize money to recoup the stallions current service fee. If you were to add training costs the ratio was more like 90/10..... or for every 1 good horse there were 9 slow ones. So I don't believe that just because a stallion has a barn storming finish it is going to throw this into your foal. My reference to the Dubai /Singspiel cross (nick) which has produced 38% Stakes winners to runners was not something that I was recommending for your budget, it was merely to point out what is possible in this industry and that the pattern that I have been posting, "reinforcing a stallions female line', is present in this cross.

    Possible the best "nick" in the world at the moment Dubawi over Singsiel mares. From 26 runners ...3 Group One winners,...... 8 Group winners....10 Stakes winners or 38% Stakes winners to runners.

    Zabeel's best performance for producing Group One winners came when he served Vice Regal mares.
