There is no book – there can be no book – that will infallibly point the way to successful bloodstock breeding. Yet in the General Stud Book, the sport of horse racing has produced a genetic record extending over more than two centuries and a score of generations that contains an ordered store of facts about the hereditary qualities of one living species – data that no scientific body possesses. Here is the recorded experience of the man who, above all others of our time, has deciphered the riddle of its manifold pages: Federico Tesio.Tesio and Nearco and Ribot are the names of the greatest breeder, the outstanding sire, and the most consistent winner of the twentieth century, and perhaps of all time. The astonishing and prolonged success of the Italian stud at Dormello was the result not merely of an encyclopaedic knowledge of recorded facts about equine dynasties and the history of the thoroughbred but of wide practical experience in all parts of the world and acute, sustained and minute observation of the characteristics of particular horses and bloodlines. The essence of Tesio’s philosophy and something of his genius has been distilled into this gem of a book.

There are still many unknowns in the breeding of Thoroughbreds, but the international research coalition known as the Equine Genome Project is facilitating many new exciting discoveries. Dr Matthew Binns is a leader of the project, an enterprise set up to map the equine genome, and with racing historian and bloodstock authority Tony Morris has written this important book on the theory, practice, art and science of Thoroughbred breeding.This long-awaited book describes how man came to express pedigree and to develop theories about it, and how practical breeders behaved in the light of their understanding. It explains why many theories - including some still widely granted credibility today - are fallacious, examines the very real progress in knowledge since the principles of genetics were discovered, and focuses on the exciting developments of the last few years, when eminent geneticists have applied their expertise to the subject of the Thoroughbred.It has been the authors' endeavour to present that information in a form that may be readily understood by anyone who shares a love of the Thoroughbred and a fascination with what makes him what he is. Packed with absorbing history and cutting-edge science, this is a fascinating and illuminating book.

Federico Tesio (1869-1954) is the most successful breeder of Thoroughbreds in the history of racing. The horses he bred at his Dormello Stud on the banks of Lake Maggiore in northern Italy continue to have a genetic impact on Thoroughbreds around the world.This new, faithful translation of Tesios 1947 work Puro-Sangue - Animale da Esperimento (The Pure Blood - An Animal of Experimentation) captures every idea and nuance of the original Italian text. In it, the reader will find this great breeders own views on genetics and the Thoroughbred as a hybrid, what he looks for in the first 64 ancestors of a horses pedigree, why heavily-raced horses rarely produce successful offspring, and more. He also shares his Law of Changeable Maximums and Law of Similar but not Identical.Federico Tesio has been the envy of racehorse breeders for generations.

Designing Speed in the Racehorse is an indispensable reference by Ken McLean, one of the world's foremost bloodstock advisors and pedigree experts. McLean discusses genetic affinities and pedigree patterns, analyzes the pedigrees of important sires and ancestors to isolate elements of speed and stamina, explains what characteristics to look for in a sire, and updates the elite mare list. Breeders will be especially interested in McLean's analysis of the conformation of many of the breed's most illustrious sires and the physical attributes and faults they passed on to their progeny. Best of all, he tells the current sire and dam lines most likely to produce quality racehorses. With his recommendations at hand, today's Thoroughbred breeder has an edge in the competitive world of racing.

The Scots and the Turf

"The Scots & The Turf tells the story of the amazing contribution made to the world of Thoroughbred horse racing by the Scots and those of Scottish ancestry, past and present, including 2017's Grand National winner One for Arthur.Throughout the years, this contribution has been across the board, from jockeys to trainers and owners as well as some superb horses. Currently, Scotland has a great ambassador in Mark Johnston, who has resurrected Middleham in North Yorkshire as one of the country's foremost training centres, while his jumping counterpart Alan King, the son of a Lanarkshire farmer, is now based outside Marlborough. The greatest lady owner of jumpers in recent years was Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, while Stirling-born Willie Carson was five-times champion jockey on the Flat. These are, of course, familiar names to any racing enthusiast but they represent just a small part of the Scottish connection that has influenced the Sport of Kings down the years. Recognition of the part played by those from north of the Border is long overdue and The Scots & The Turf now sets the record straight with a fascinating account of those who have helped make horse racing into the fabulous spectacle it is today."--

The determination of when, how, how often and with whom an animal breeds is moving rapidly away from evolutionary pressures and towards human purposes: these include the breeding of around 50 billion mammals and birds for food production annually, the breeding of pedigree dogs and cats, racing dogs and horses, specialised laboratory animal strains and the use of reproductive science to conserve endangered species or breeds and to limit unwanted populations of pests and non-native species. But the ethics and sustainability of this takeover of animals' reproductive lives have been insufficiently examined by either professionals or the public. This book discusses the methods, the motivations and the consequences of human intervention in animal breeding in terms of animal health, behaviour and well-being. It explores where we are now and the choices ahead, and looks to a future where we have more respect for animals as sentient beings and where we could loosen the reins of reproductive control.

Horseracing, thoroughbred breeding and gambling on racing are global industries worth several hundred billion dollars. They are also industries facing serious challenges, from the rise of alternative forms of leisure gambling to concerns about the ethical treatment of animals in all equestrian sports. This book offers a broad-ranging examination of the contemporary horseracing industry, from geographical, economic, social, ethical and environmental perspectives. The book draws on in-depth, mixed-method research into the racing and breeding industries in the US, Australia, the UK, Canada and New Zealand, and includes comparative material on other key racing centres, such as Ireland, Singapore and Hong Kong. It explores the economic structure of the global racing business, including comparisons with other major international sport businesses and other equestrian sports. It examines the social and cultural roots of the sport through its association with, and impact on, rural places, communities and environments from Kentucky to Newmarket - highlighting racing's particular blend of tradition and scientific and technological innovation. The book also explores the ethical issues at the heart of horseracing, from reproduction to the use of the whip, and the inescapable tension between the horse as an instrumentally valuable commodity and the horse as an intrinsically valuable animal with needs and interests. The Global Horseracing Industry concludes by considering alternative futures for this major international sports business. The book is illuminating reading for anybody with an interest in sport, business, cultural geography, animal studies, or environmental studies.
