Million dollar dam line , and by I believe the best dog to ever come out of the US
Infrared had a back straight run like no other , a mix of being possessed and having extra gears !

Evident in that pups run in the above thread ....... such a shame there wasnt more straws

Aussies father , enjoy ...... from memory his strike rate was above 30% also

Aussie Infrared was a great chaser & will give credit where it's due to him as a sire as he's a top producer, a chunk of of his success at stud is due to most of the broods he's served are some of the best in Australia , he's been blessed with serving the cream of the crop broodies which only a small minority of stud dogs get.

Geoff that's a great criteria for a sire , it simplifies what's needed , but if most of what you get in a pup comes from the dam , what's a good criteria for a dam .
Also assuming we aren't really meant to use staying sires , do you think the sire criteria would still apply to say Zac monelli ?

Larry .. as you said it's a very simplified perspective. Having a track record is great but there are plenty of dogs that have broken records and failed at stud .. same with Group races .. we all want to win one but that doesnt guarantee any dogs success as a sire. It may be a good start but there are undoubtably a number of other aspects that affect a sires ability to produce.

Branko .. I'm not going to comment on the quality of other peoples broods but as Aussie only had 15 litters in his first year at stud .. he certainly didnt make it by weight of numbers

Hi Geoff ,
Fair enough, Aussie did very well in his 1st year at stud serving 15 bitches when you compare him to most stud dogs the others barely get 3 - 5 in in their 1st year & some get 0 unfortunately and those dogs were great on the race track.

Geoff it's slightly off topic of this thread , put it this way . Aussie had limited dams in his first year . Looking at the pick of that crop what if anything stands out to you as a typical dam type to be using , not just with Aussie but broadly speaking , say the dams best 3 attributes looking back , please .
