The Art and Science of Breeding Racehorses

Breeding the ultimate racehorse has challenged the minds of breeders and theorists for over 200 years. Now, for the first time, students of racehorse breeding will have a chance to examine theories on genetics, biomechanics, nicking, dosage, inbreeding, outcrossing, statistical methods, female family lines, heart score, Bruce Lowe, the work of Federico Tesio, Harry Laughlin, Joe Estes and more.

Here, in one volume, is a wide and varied assessment of the major breeding systems or theories, as well as the history and background of each. The writers give the reader all the necessary information they need to implement the theory and make it part of a breeding program. They also verify the relative scientific validity of the theories and various approaches to breeding. This, more than any other factor, sets this book apart from other attempts to offer breeding theory to owners and breeders. The authors ask, "Does this really work and, if so, how often has it been proven or disproven?"  Authors include Frank Mitchell as Contributing Editor, with chapters and data by Steve Roman, Rommy Faversham, Ross Staaden, David Dink, and more. 

Using the varied approaches and theories, the modern breeder can pull out the information that best fits his program and piece together the puzzle that will lead to the best horse possible.
