Continuing the “UNF conformation” series is Henrythenavigator. Unfortunately, Henry is back in Ireland so that pretty much KOs my hopes of Zenyatta ever going to him (though her dam Vertigineux has a yearling filly by him I’m excited about). He was a terrific miler who could get the classic distance, albeit on grass. As far as modern, living horses go, Henry is just about the picture of perfection.
As much as I love his breeding (by Kingmambo— Mr. Prospector x Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Miesque— out of a Sadlers Wells mare), he does have quite a bit of inbreeding. Can’t win them all…
