I have a friend who breeds sporthorses and she is looking for a homozygous grey thoroughbred stallion to breed one of her mares to here in the US. Does anyone know of any that aren't exorbitantly priced? Good feet are a must.

I figured this forum would be a good place to start. ;)

Not sure of any that are 100% confirmed homozygous, but Musketier seems to have a fair amount of gray kiddos.

Calumet would probably be more than happy to lend his services to your friend, and he ran a really long time, so he'd be a source of soundness for sure.

EDIT: There's a pretty gray boy I found on Stallions Now named Parseghian. I saw him a while back while browsing online and thought he was handsome. He is advertised as being available to sporthorse breeders and his first foals arrived this year. There's nothing about him being homozygous for gray, but his listing does say he has nice feet and a great temperament. He made 70+ starts on the track and hit the board or won 27 times. He also retired sound. He has a granddad I've never heard of, Chenin Blanc. Take a chance maybe?

He can't be. His sire is chestnut.

Parseghian has a 2/10 temperament according to his stallion listing. What does that mean, that he’s laid back or a fire breather?

They say in his description that "he is a total gentleman, pastured beside mares and hangs out in an open front stall in a busy barn."

Good work! I'll let my friend know. ;)

I also found Double Irish (Tapit x stakes-winning Cee's Tizzy mare) standing in Arkansas.

Yeah, not sure if Bachelor Blues is still in the breeding business (based on the PQ record) but I thought I'd share anyway. Worth a shot, I guess.

There is a stallion in Indiana named Unbridled Spring https://www.pedigreequery.com/unbridled+spring. He has been lightly used, but both parents are grey and from what I can tell all his offspring have been grey, so he is also likely homozygous. He is listed in the 2020 Indiana Stallion Register https://www.in.gov/hrc/tb/files/2020%20 ... BSITEA.pdf as standing at "West Farms", but they don't seem to have a website or facebook page that I can find.

Double Irish has sired chestnut and bay foals, and therefore isn't homozygous.

Good catch, Faladin. Too bad there isn't more information available for Unbridled Spring like a photo or a farm website.

Looks like Preachinatthebar is homozygous. Looks like he is standing out in Washington.
