Ok, so I am a total bloodline buff, especially QH racehouse lines. I think, somewhat, you can generalize on lines but seriously. A 'Driftwood' bred horse, which I had, was also a 'Sunfrost' bred horse. How do you a classify a horse in one bloodline when theres 4 others mixed in? Unless you're talking about certain linebred horses or bloodlines then you can't generalize. My Drifwood/Sunfrost mare totally lacked ambition and had no attitude. This horse was bred UP THE BUTT by Potter Ranch in Marana AZ (Sherry Cervi's parents) and she lacked ALL the qualities those two lines are known for. It seems ignorant to generalize a bloodline when a "King" or "Sunfrost" horse is so diluted that they have more other stuff mixed in than that. Certain qualities are bred down, yes, but in good performance horses you will find MULTIPUL great sires on one paper. How do you generalize that?
