2x3 question

Post by Eric Gray » 1 month ago

As a relative newcomer to the game, I’m just now in my second breeding season, but I’m curious about something and looking for some insight from more established players. I’ve got my eyes to the future and in a few years, I could have what I consider to be a very interesting cross. The resulting foal would be a 2x3 cross to not one, but two of the TB DR’s most recent superstars. Does anyone have any examples of this phenomenon and the results from it, either good or bad? Thanks for any replies.

My 3x2 experiment to broodmare My Heart of Hearts is so far a huge success. It gave me a freak filly that, last I checked, had the fastest 4f turf workout time for this year.

Thanks Fanta. My particular opportunity would have two of those. 2x3 to two different studs.

I checked all my stakes/freaks and none of them have been 2x3 😅 some were 3x3

I have always tried to avoid 2x3 to any stallion when I can since it's generally not looked upon greatly in real life. The Steward has stated that she also likes to stay away from 2x3 crosses, so I'd imagine if she doesn't want to do them, then neither would many of us! However, there are some exceptions (Enable in real life is 3x2 to Sadler's Wells, and Private Affair in the SIM is 2x3 to Keep Your Promise) of course.

Mares are different to me, and I don't really mind doing a 2x3 cross on a great mare, like in Fanta's case. Another notable example of this is Man in Motion, who is 2x3 to Maryland Million. If I remember correctly, Tim said he wasn't crazy about the inbreeding, but it ended up working out favorably!

Personally, I probably wouldn't breed a horse that is 2x3 to two different stallions, but hey, different play styles, right? Maybe the experiment will work out!

Thanks for the input and I welcome any more. The two foals I am talking about haven't even galloped yet, let alone raced. If it were possible for Dave Matthews Band and Kingdom Come to have a baby, this would be as close as it coould be. I, unfortunately can't figure out how to link the hypo, but here are the two horses in question if anyone is interested enough to look at the resulting hypo.
