In the latest issue of Breeding&Racing Magazine (out this week) leading equine researcher Renee Geelen explains that, while "stakes-winning broodmares make up 4.5% of the broodmare population & are responsible for 14% of stakes-winning foals, that's impressive - but expensive too." With the majority of breeders budget-constrained, the numbers "also mean 86% of black-type winners don't have a stakes-winning dam". Geelen therefore addresses the key questions: How do you find a mare that will leave a stakes-winner? And where do you compromise to get the best mare that you can afford?
