Palomino Thoroughbred
 
I was looking at Thoroughbreds on dreamhorse last night, and for some reason decided not to exclude stallions. Don't worry I am not going to breed. I do not know enough about to even care about. Anyway, I came across an ad that has a palomino thoroughbred at stud. I didn't think they came in that color. To be palomino, is he pure tb? Also, can someone please explain to me what a non-dilute mare would be? They wanted a higher stud fee for non-dilute jockey club mares.

Yes TBs can be palomino though it's rare and they're still purebred. There is a person on this forum I believe that breeds them and other fancy colored TBs they're gorgeous!

TrueColours is the user and has a absolutely stunning cremello TB stud. Cremello and sorrel will produce palomino 100% of the time.

wow, that is amazing. i didnt know it was even possible to be full tb and be palomino.

If your interested you can look at True Colours Farm's website
She also has a bunch of pinto thoroughbreds, buckskins, and cremellos. I think her mare Faux Finish is stunning.

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't the Jockey Club accept non-pure breds if they meet certain qualifications?

Jockey club is pretty strict. Both parents must be purebred thoroughbreds (either registered to the American Jockey Club or a foreign, but equivalent registry) and the foal must be a result of live cover. They don't accept artificial insemination.

I've often wondered why they didn't allow AI. I mean, I would think the breeders would protest because they could make more money if they could ship to mares all over the country instead of just covering those that can come to them. Of course some of the stud fees make up for that, like good ole A.P. Indy: Stallion Register Online - A.P. Indy

I believe the live-cover rule is so that they can 100% ensure parentage, although I could be wrong. That's just what I've been told in the past.
