Set Alight, the dam, does not need introduction, she lost the 2009 Indian Derby by short
margin to Antonios.
She is by one of Indias` great sire, Razeen., who is bound to be a champion Broodmare Sire.
Razeen is an x-factor horse. Meaning he possessed the large-heart gene on his X Chromosome which he inherited from his double-copy mare dam Secret Asset, which
in turn he passed on to Set Alight. Although Set Alight is a single-copy mare ( carrying
the large heart gene in only one of her two X Chromosomes),
any foal out of Set Alight have 50% chance of inheriting the LH gene from her.
Razeen also, have 27 crosses of St. Simon within 9 generation.
I will expand on the subject of heart size in my future posting but one can read Marianna Haun`s
or other artcles on the subject of X-Factor.
