Teddy's Sireline: Branches

Author: Jana Nemeckova, published: 9th October 2018

Error report

Teddy's stud career lasted 19 years, and the complete overview of his line includes 16 sons, which left a mark on the thoroughbred breeding of the 20th century. Six of them were able to establish main branches of Teddy's line: full brothers Sir Gallahad and Bull Dog in the United States, and Aethelstan and Asterus in Europe. The last two names were improbable, but they defied the odds: Ortello in Italy, and Sun Teddy in the United States.

Sir Gallahad is responsible for the Triple Crown winners Gallant Fox and Omaha, and his tail-male line later produced Victoria Park and Admiral's Voyage, famous as damsires of The Minstrel and Danzig, respectively. Sir Gallahad's line was strong for five decades but faded dramatically at the end of the 1980s. The line didn't last much longer after, and the last important sire was Kennedy Road, who died in 1995.

Bull Dog became the grandsire of Citation, and his ancestors are responsible for damsire influence in pedigrees of Nijinsky and Habitat. Both Bull Dog and his son Bull Lea represent the best period of the branch, and once their sons ended their stud careers, the line was almost done. Members of the line were often sent abroad in the 1960s, and the line virtually disappeared in the early 1970s.

Sun Teddy's branch had a slow start, and it didn't get the right impulse until Damascus came in the 1970s. His son Private Account began his stud career in 1981, and their descendants saved the whole Teddy's line for the 21st century.

Aethelstan spent several years in both Europe and North America, but his major influence remained strictly European. He sired classic winners and major French runners Deiri, Fantastic, Louqsor, and Maurepas, who all turned out to be successful sires. Deiri's grandson Tantieme extended the continental line with his sons Tanerko and Agio, and the line survived into the 21st century thanks to the South American branch of Deiri's son Bey.

Ortello didn't establish any real branch, as his tail-male influence disappeared with his grandsons. Still, Ortello and his sons managed to influence many classic horses in Italy, Germany, and also France, as well as several influential international sires.
