and yes, there is a common thread to A+B+C+D+E
Answer A: Their dam is a female straight line descendant of #TheByerleyTurk Mare10.
Answer B: Their dam is a female straight line decendent of #TheByerleyTurk Mare (Family 3 mainly)
Answer C: Their Sire's Dam is a direct female descendant of #TheByerleyTurk Mare10
Answer D: Their Sire's Dam is a direct female descendent of #TheByerleyTurk Mare ( family 3 or 8)
Answer E: Their sire is a straight line descendent of #TheByerleyTurk
Isn't it time to rethink the dominance of the 2 x other foundation stallions and, more importantly recognise that mitochondria - which deliver energy to cells - is only inherited on the female line?
Horse lines with the best mitochondria (from dams) were able to develop & inherit the best strength & power (from sires) #TheByerleyTurk & his mares need to be valued & recognised before they are lost from breeding lines @itvracing @chamberlinsport @RichardHoiles
Hi ITV Racing - how about mentioning #TheByerleyTurk 's role at the Battle of the Boyne this afternoon?…
Add MInella Drama to this - #TheByerleyTurk Mare family 41 - just like Arkle
Add Minella Drama to this - just like Arkle has dam tracing back to #TheByerelyTurk Mare9 (family 41) and sire's dam goes in straight line to #TheByerleyTurk Mare10 (family 1)
@RichardHoiles Add Secret Investor to this!
Secret Investor, Politologue and My Tent or Yours to Group A;
Minella Drama to Group B;
Soaring Glory, Sceau Royal, Beef or Salmon & My Tent or Yours to Group C;

Chunking through Timeform to do justice to #TheByerleyTurk & his mares. This is no coincidence - with few exceptions, their direct line descendants are responsible for the Who's Who of racehorses, their influence is greater than Darley Arabian or Godolphin.

#TheByeleryTurk 's influence on TB racing is often overlooked due to global investment in Darley/Godolphin studs Many truly great horses owe their success to their dam's mitochondria, or to physical development of their sire's line, due to superior mtDNA from their dam See below
