Dash Ta Fame, a son of First Down Dash out of the mare Sudden Fame, is an anomaly as a top 25 all-time leading sire of racehorse money earners of over $19 million and the all-time leading sire of barrel racing money earners of over $23 million. He is in the top 20 as a broodmare sire of racehorse money earners in excess of $20 million, and he is the broodmare sire of barrel racers earning over $12 million.
Hes Relentless had quite a year in 2019 as the leading first crop sire of money earners with over $2.1 million and 11 stakes winners. His stakes winners made him the #2 leading sire of stakes winners and the #3 leading sire of graded stakes winners. You might say he was relentless in his pursuit of the 2019 Leading Freshman Sire of Money Earners title.
We have learned that a structure is only as strong as the foundation on which it is built. Horsemen have learned the same thing about breeding good horses. They have come to know that they have to start with a good foundation to develop their breeding program. Breeders see that foundation in the mares on the bottom line of the bracket pedigree. We call this line of mares the tail female line and every tail female line should trace to a Taproot Mare, which is the foundation of that mare family.
