Pedigree Analysis – Louis Mihalyka, Laurel Oak Bloodstock

Jacquinot has a pedigree that is a cocktail of some of the greatest influences on Australian breeding in recent times. He is from the Encosta De Lago sireline, inbred to Redoute’s Choice’s dam Shantha’s Choice and carries strains of Danehill, Fairy King and his brother Sadler’s Wells, Zabeel, influential mare Rolls, her sire Mr. Prospector, and others, that provide a multitude of opportunities to inbreed and reinforce aspects of a mare’s pedigree by breeding to Jacquinot.

The beauty of the flexibility of Jacquinot’s pedigree is that the affinities with the broodmare band are not just restricted to specific broodmare sires but can also be found in the bottom half of a mare’s pedigree as so many second, third and fourth dam sires will complement the ancestor’s listed above. Specific broodmare sires that complement Jacquinot’s pedigree include Zoustar, Headwater, Sebring, Pride Of Dubai, Vancouver, Sepoy, Preferment and Teofilo amongst many others.
