This catalogue style pedigree is highly edited to promote quality in the pedigree. It closely follows the rules we use to produce sales catalogue pedigrees. Each black-type performer is displayed on a line of their own. Most pedigrees will include 3 or 4 dams and will fit on two or three pages. This pedigree will not artifically stop on a prescribed page.
Pedigrees will remain available for you to review for 48 hrs after purchase.
Please note that the guidelines listed below, are very general explanations of the International Cataloguing Standards Committee rules. It is necessary to remember that black-type is also awarded based on which part in the International Cataloguing Standards booklet a particular country appears.
BLACK-TYPE RACES INCLUDE:
Black Type (stakes) Races
Black type (stakes) races are divided into the following categories:
Grade (group) designators (-G1, -G2, -G3) were inaugurated in 1971 and were applied to English, French, Irish, German and Italian races, but not applied to North American catalog pages until 1973. These same designators were inaugurated in 1973 for the United States and Canada. Beginning January 1, 1985, brackets [ ] replaced the dash preceding the designators. At this time, the designators could also be listed after a horse's name, indicating it's best finish, if there was no room on a catalog page to list a complete race name. Starting January 1, 2002, the track abbreviation where the race was run and the amount of money earned by the individual is carried in parentheses following the grade designators.
As stated above, the first three finishers in a race will receive black type status, but beginning with races run January 1, 1985, fourth place finishes in graded races run in countries listed in Part 1 of the "International Cataloguing Standards" will be recognized as official placings and those horses will also earn black type. This ruling was amended starting January 1, 1989, to award fourth placed finishers black type status in Grade 1 races only. A subsequent ruling beginning January 1, 1990, no longer awards fourth place finishers any black type status.
