Large Irish Crowd For Gr1 Goldmine Seminar
At the Irish Thoroughbred Breeders Trade Fair at Goffs, Australian pedigree company Gr1 Goldmine struck a chord with seminar attendees: European Bloodstock News reported "the most popular of the seminars & certainly the highest attended proved to be Pedigree Patterns - Positive & Negative Crosses Working In Ireland". Hosted by Gr1 Goldmine principal Leo Tsatsaronis, the seminar focussed on "sire-line compatibility between mares & stallions, with special emphasis on negative nicks", with an example gleaned from the company's software showing "the negative cross of a Nureyev mare to a Sadler's Wells stallion, while reversing the nick showed a high number of Gr1 winners".
