My one freak stayed freaky. My stakes TM boy I've been struggling with stayed a stakes (relieved to learn he's not equivalently an allowance after all).
The pile of DM allowance gallops George Knatz gave me before he left have _mostly_ stayed allowance. About 5 or so went down to productive.
My one Easy Goer granddaughter who was a peak productive stayed a peak productive so there's still hope for my side project.
I still only have two DC's from my yearling/first season homebreds (CAMs don't make good foals
). I didn't have any stakes yearlings. Just eyeballing my homebreds they look pretty similar (A Frank Silence is still an allowance gallop, as is Woman's Travail and a few others who are "hopefuls" as allowance runners who may bloom into stakes later). I'm sure a couple shifted down in their gallops but overall they look pretty similar.
As a new breeder who is still trying to get a feel for the slider, my priorities are very different from people who are actually trying to breed G1 contenders. I'm pretty happy with the results of the gallop changes, because having more reliable gallop ratings is only good/helpful for me.
Commiserations to the people whose hopefuls have been crushed though. Good wishes for your festivus gallops
