FIRST SAMURAI highlights the Stallion Spotlight feature this week on Paulick Report. The feature, by Joe Nevills, offers stud farm representatives to address breeders and answer questions as they finalize their mating decisions for the 2020 breeding season…
What can a breeder expect from a First Samurai foal as a weanling? As a yearling?
Walker Hancock: Usually good body, plenty of bone. They’re strong, athletic. He’s a heavier type of horse, and he’ll throw that. If you’ve got a light mare, I think it’s a good cross to breed with him from a physical standpoint.
What’s something about First Samurai that you think goes overlooked?
Walker Hancock: That he’s had so many millionaires and Grade 1 winners. I think people kind of forget that.
Bernie Sams: If he had Executiveprivilege out of his first crop, it would have been a whole different story.
