Re: [RC] [RC] Raffles breeding and endurance - Dawn Carrie

One or two crosses to Raffles probably doesn't mean much...but if a horse goes back to him many times, then one starts adding up the amount of "Raffles blood" in the horse in question.  Quite a few crosses can mean that the horse has a good percentage of Raffles.  He was pretty prepotent, if I remember correctly.  Of course, one would need to also consider the other horses in the pedigree.  But I am a huge fan of heavily Raffles-bred horses...we just lost our 31 yr old gelding last fall to a freak accident, and he was still going strong.  He was very heavy Raffles (name was HH Rafazon, if anyone is interested in looking him up).  I would have loved to have owned him when he was younger...we didn't get him till he was 23.

Raffles is so far back that many American arabians trace back to him.
I'm not a genealogist but it seems to me that it would be hard to
attribute success to a horse so many generations back.  I'd be very
interested to hear what others who know more about bloodlines have to say.
