Ribot's Line

Ribot's dynasty had a very interesting fate. Ribot, the double winner of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, ended his racing career unbeaten and as one of the greatest racehorses in history. He was mated to the best mares and didn't disappoint, as he became the three-times leading sire of Great Britain and Ireland. As a sire, he produced no less than 18 successful sons at stud, but his dynasty wasn't able to last longer than four generations.

However, only five of these sires spent their stud career in one country. Others traveled across the world: eight sons of Ribot were standing in the United States, seven in Europe, four in Australia or New Zealand, and four in Japan. From these 18 sons, only His Majesty, Graustark, and Tom Rolfe were able to start anything close to a branch of a sireline. By the way, Graustark became the British leading broodmare sire, His Majesty the leading sire in North America, and Tom Rolfe's son Hoist the Flag achieved the same honor. But despite this undeniable success of the line, this brief description and too many colors in the following scheme say it all. The tail-male influence of Ribot lasted well into the 21st century, but it seems it's heading to the inevitable end.
