It is always a challenge for breeders to differentiate between "pet theories" and what is actually happening in the breed.  To have a look at the top 50 2 and 3 year olds each year along with the breeding and performance of their dams is one way of trying to keep up to date.  You might find the attachments below of interest in this regard.  They can be viewed on the site or downloaded.
    Seem to have lost the ones for 2007-8 and 2009-10.  If I find them will put them up but they are probably 'lost in space' somewhere.
