Pegasus Profile Spotlight: Case Studies
It is not surprising that based on genetic analysis of all fillies and mares completed by LifeLine Genetics as of June 2014, Rags to Riches is the top ranked mare in several Pegasus Profile categories. Amongst females, this Horse of the Year (1992) winner holds the top spot for 3 elite genetic categories: Graded Stakes Mile Index (GSMi) – 8.23, Graded Stakes Router Index (GSRi) – 9.51, and Lifetime Best Beyer on Fast Dirt Track Index (LBDFi) – 5.13. It should be noted that the A.P. Indy mare holds the second position of all fillies/mares analyzed in 2 other categories: Lifetime Best Beyer Index – 5.82, and overall Graded Stakes Index (GSi) – 5.79. The Belmont Stakes winner has very high scores in the route categories Ri(BPD) – 6.48 and Ri(AWD) – 6.01. She ranks tenth of all fillies/mares with 4.40 in the 3 year-old Best Beyer Index (3yoBBi) category.
