Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile 2015 Debut Close -X


   

2015 Kentucky Derby
Classic Champion
Thoroughbred Profile®[s]


If you are planning to breed, or purchase at auction, a potential classic-winning Thoroughbred, the Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® is the analytical tool you need to take the guesswork out of buying and breeding champion racehorses.

The empirical data of the Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® will easily show you which horses have the potential to be classic champions while other horses may only be quality stakes winners.

The profile will give you the important information necessary to make the best decisions and investments when breeding or buying horses at auction.

In the 2015 Kentucky Derby, three horses were homebred while 17 of the original 20 entries were purchased at auction. Of those 17, American Pharoah, Dortmund, Danzig Moon, Mubtaahij and International Star were the only horses identified by the Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® software as having the potential to, perhaps, become a classic champion. Of the homebred horses, Frosted had a profile that indicated he might have classic potential.

So, the software easily eliminated seventy percent (70%) of the Derby field from consideration as potential classic winners.

The Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® can help you determine which horses will be best suited for running in stakes races only, while a few select horses will have a profile that indicates they may have classic potential.
