Synopsis: Author John Bradley looks at the pedigrees, records and stud performance of the top 50 trotting sires of the modern era. These are current sires or sires that are close up in the pedigrees of today's horses. Bradley analyzes each horse sire by sire, dam by dam, cross by cross and nick by nick. He suggests links in the pedigree of each horse leading to its success; reviews the bloodlines that seem to work best with each stallion and mare line; and discusses strategies to take advantage of the strength of each horse. The book's handsome, simulated-leather binding makes it an ideal gift for fans of the Standardbred. It's the perfect companion to Bradley's Modern Pacing Sire Lines.
