Re: Traits of US sires offspring« Reply on: November 16, 2011»Quote If you were looking for a sire to inject the following traits in their offspring which one is the first one that springs to mind when I say
4. Early pace
Blazin Wildfire. The right temperament, the right phenotype, the right bloodlines and he'd run through the proverbial brick wall.
Dennis answer to:Curious as to the female bloodlines that you all might consider to Blazin Wildfire?
It looks to me like the field for him is wide open to all but Molotov and/or Ps Raising Cain inflected lines. . I would think he'd be a nice choice for any line you'd want to add some grit to, without sacrificing pace or ability to carry that pace over a distance.
I think he's an ideal individual for AUS and IRE/UK, because he brings sprinters speed as well as capacity to stay on, really nice conformation and galloping form, on top of a great deal of determination. And his pedigree is just brimming with class. Brett Lee on top, Molotov 2x through daughters, throw in a dose of the stalwart, All-Everything Dominator, above a damline that has already produced, only recently, the outstanding sire, Craigie Whistler.
I think breeders might be wearing out the path to this dog in better times.
Just to warn you, I dropped Tater's (and your) name on the Greyhound-data Forum, in a discussion of American Sires.
This is what I told them.
For those who are willing to speculate on American sires; I think Blazin Wildfire, (Dragon Fire x Tin Nee Ann by Dominator) is a fine prospect. He was a tenacious chaser of unusual heart and track skills. He was open stakes placed in finals at 550 and 660 yards, and was clearly the best dog at Hollywood (Mardi Gras) during the running of the 2010 World Classic, but was not able to compete because of some technicality or other. He is 3x3 to Molotov, and carries him in an X passing position. He from the same direct female family as the outstanding sire, Craigie Whistler (a son of Molotov), who crossed pretty nicely with imported lines here.
He is owned by Judi Boulton, who can be contacted via the American Greyhounds website. (I have no financial interest in the dog, btw).
Have you given any thought to sending straws overseas? I think he'd be a sensational sire for IRE, UK, AUS.
I'm not easily impressed any more. I've seen tens of thousands of greyhounds over the years, and a lot of the great ones. I study greyhounds in motion the way some people study scripture. Over the past few years, for various reasons (and a good deal of those reasons have to do with aesthetics, and what I perceive as intangibles, above their their won/lost records), I've been truly impressed with several greyhounds, internationally, who really made me sit up and take notice.
The ones that pop into mind immediately are, in no particular order, Talentedmrripley, Brett Lee, Premier Fantasy, Boone's Fishnkid, Ozzie The Man, Razldazl Billy, Bar The Devil, Paddy Whacker and Blazin Wildfire.
