From pedigree analyst Ken McLean

Breeding the successful racehorse is a challenge. One needs dedication, patience, a stout heart, time for research, and, above all, admiration for one of nature's most beautiful animals.

Successful racehorse breeders need to be observant and skillful in the selection process, seeking answers as to why genetic inheritance behaves the way it does. The more knowledge acquired, the more we realize how much is yet to be learned.

Ken McLean's newest book, Designing Speed in the Racehorse, is an incredible resource for the serious breeder of racehorses. Over 50 years of pedigree research and performance results compiled by the author are combined with the astute analysis of one of the world's top pedigree advisors. He discusses genetic variation, transmission of desirable genetic qualities, conformation, energy, inheritance of speed through specific bloodlines and more. He updates the list of "elite" mares, examines the influence of Northern Dancer, Polynesian, Native Dancer, Herbager, Wild Risk, Princequillo, Round Table, Ribot and more.

McLean produces a veritable blueprint for breeders seeking to breed future stakes winners. Don't miss your opportunity to own this book!
