[RC] Old arab blood - Barb Peck

I have a question for the people who study these blood lines and are breeders.

Can a cross bred horse of today-  with Crabbet blood (thru RAFTAN) 5 
generations back- show the characteristics of that line , even though the blood 
is diluted through one-4 generations?

I know genetics are a tricky thing sometimes- so I guess my question is:

How many generations back is it, before a horse can't be a "throw back" to 
certain (especially visual
conformational traits)... 3rd, 4th - 5th generation..
