Pedigrees 360 FAQ

Pedigrees 350 logo and information
Pedigrees360 was built by Software Developers utilizing the expertise of numerous pedigrees analyses, historical data, Federico Tesio Breeding Theories, and Artificial Intelligence. Millions of models have been run through the software during the development of the software. What they discovered after inputting millions of records is that the software will not only tell you if you have the potential for a fast horse, it will also pick out the slow horses. Utilizing modern technology with historical data, the software goes back 9 generations and looks at virtually every drop of blood in the pedigree to determine the performance of the horse as a runner, a sire, or broodmare. After running thousands of validation studies I have found some very strong trends that appear to be approximately 74% accurate, I utilize this information when I supply breeders with hypothetical mating reports or sales reports.
Truenicks looks at the sire and broodmare sire only. The bottom half of the pedigree (which most will argue is the most importart aspect of the pedigree) is largely ignored. Another serious problem is if it is a new stallion or a stallion that has a relatively small book, Truenicks will completely ignore that sire, his dam and family. Many times you get reports based on the Grandsire and grand broodmare sire which results in a very compromised report missing a lot of pieces. Pedigrees360 goes back 9 generations and looks at every horse in the pedigree, top and bottom and then looks at tons of historical data of how each horse in the pedigree (9 generations worth) has matched up with other horses in the pedigree over the most recent 9 generations. In short, pedigrees360 utilizes all the data available within the pedigree giving you much more accurate information.
Truenicks is owned by Bloodhorse and is free for the breeder to use. The other mating software's are available through subscription only and are not on the Bloodhorse platform. When you consider the cost of breeding, boarding the Dam, raising the foal, training the foal as a yearling and two year old, Free reports that miss the mark become very expensive!
Both of these programs were designed and built by the same person, Leo Tsatsaronis from Australia. Pedigrees360 is based on Federico Tesio’s theories on linebreeding – the amplification of breedshaping ancestors. Some may ask what difference does it make in regard to which horse is in the 9th generation as it was so long ago. That is true if there is only one or two examples of that horse in the pedigree, but if that breed-shaping family shows up 20 -40 times in the pedigree 9 generations ago, it makes a huge difference. G1Goldmine is based on in-breeding, the most recent 4 generations. In some cases when running reports, the pedigrees360 does not look all that good, but the horse did perform on the track – I always go to g1goldmine and usually discover that the magic that makes the horse a great appeared in the most recent 4 generations. Both of these reports are extremely accurate and very useful when planning a mating or a purchase.
Pedigrees360 provides three different reports that I pay attention too. The first is the cluster profile which appears on the top left corner of the report. If you are running a hypothetical mating, it will show the potential performance of both the colt or filly. How can the cluster report be different for a colt than a filly. The simple answer is some stallions are known to produce better fillies than colts. Take Secretariat for example – his best runners and best contributors to the breed were his daughters. Much of that has to do with the Mitachondrial DNA (mtDNA) which can only be passed down through the female line. If the pedigree is full of sires that have passed on large amounts of mtDNA through their daughters, the filly may be the better performer over the colt on the track as well as the breeding shed. The cluster profile is scored using dots, red dots (very slow), yellow dots (competitive) and green dots (very good). Think of the color dots as a stop light..red = stop, do not go forward with the mating, yellow – proceed with caution, and green, go forward! The second report is Cross Duplication of Sires and Cross Duplication of Mares – this is where we look and see how many times breedshaping families appear in the pedigree on the top (sires) and bottom (Mares). Statistically the best performers on the track and in the breeding she have at least two breedshaping sires appearing in the pedigree 20 times or more and at least two blue hen mares appearing in the pedigree at least 10 times each. This report is a good predictor of race track performance and breeding performance. The third report is the Sex Balance Report for both the top (sire) and bottom (mare) part of the pedigree. Statistically I want to see at least 5 instances of the mtDNA being transferred down through the generations at least 33% of the time by the daughter, (highlighted in baby blue) on the sire side and at least 2 instances of the mtDNA at least 33% of the time by the daughter on the bottom half of the pedigree (mares). This report is a great indicator of breeding success either as a sire or a broodmare. The more “baby blue boxes” the better
