Thank you! I didn't know much about STB bloodlines, but I'm slowly learning there's something interesting in the bloodline department. Her being older will prove to be an obstacle for sure. I never thought of calling the track, or even that they would be able to help. I will try that for sure.
Most horses that come from a breeding farm like Hanover Shoe (or Seelster, Blue Chip or Ambro [before they closed]) normally have the farm name in the horses name. -Name- Hanover...Ambro -Name-...-Name- Seelster...-Name- Blue Chip. However, I dont think Hanover has done this for a long time, though I think they still have it reserved so that only THEY can use that when naming a horse

Seelsters yearling can see everything has "Seelster" in it Seelster Farms

Blue Chip's 2009 sales Blue Chip Farms: 2009 Sales Yearlings Any horse that doesn't have the "Blue Chip" in it was most likely not a farm owned mare, so the foal could not have that prefix.

Also, even if the studs you mentioned above (bolded) weren't stood at that particular farm, they probably sold some cooled/frozen semen to where ever your mare was at.

Just look at some of the money that your mares lines have made!! You dont win races by being crappy. LOL. I cannot remember some other horses by those lines off the top of my head, but I can tell you that she would have made a great that my Grandparents would have love to had several years ago.

Well this explains all your knowledge in breeding farms, particularly STBs. Your grandparents were STB breeders? That is so neat! Did you nearly have no choice in what breed you would get into? :)

Good points about the names. I don't think any of those stallions stood at Hanover, which makes sense with what you suggested.

I'll keep digging. I would love to find some of her 'progeny' to see if there are similarities.
