I am often asked to help track down a Thoroughbred with specific pedigree or to give my opinion about whether I think a Thoroughbred has the right pedigree to make an easier transition to a new career as a sporthorse.
There are so many great resources online to help you learn more about how your Thoroughbred's breeding might impact a future as a sporthorse, so I thought I would share how I do it.
