No stallion had a 100% get record. Mainly b/c people say look at him see how nice he is and he is so pruuuuuurrrrrrttttttyyyyy. I think I will breed my old hag out in the pasture to him. There is no sire in the world not even HollyWood Dun It or Top Sail Whiz that can fix crap. This is why every top sire will have get that are less expensive then others. The bottom side is not there.
Now you take a really nice mare to a stallion like this and you have a very good chance of getting a very nice foal. People forget about the bottom side. I see this when people ask why I change so much for an ET when they can get on Dreamhorse and by a mare by HDI for the same price. I tell them look at the bottom side, the show records of the mares, the full siblings and so on. Then you will see why the price is different.
