Understanding the Breeding Winners Sire Statistics
A guide to understanding the Sire and Race Reports

PROUDLY ON THE WEB SINCE 1997 serving fans of thoroughbred racing.

Breeding Winners is a comprehensive study of winning performances by foals of a sire and broodmare sire (damsire) at the major racing venues in the United States. The theory is that horses with similar breeding will win races under similar conditions. Understanding as many variables as possible that produced a winning performance will yield valuable information towards predicting the true contenders in a given race.

My name is Andy Schnell and I began gathering data on winning performances in May 1995 after being a frustrated handicapper for 20 years. I now know that pedigree handicapping was my true calling and it has helped me become a much better handicapper. I believe knowing one sire gets 30% of his young maiden winners on dirt at 6.5 to 7 furlongs while another gets only 8% is a HUGE help.

I think knowing one sire gets 55% of his young maiden dirt winners when the purse is greater than $40,000 while another gets only 15% is a HUGE help. When it comes to class having the same type of percentages for the broodmare sire has proven to be a great tool. Breeding Winners is the only source for broodmare sire statistics.

I believe knowing that one sire gets his young dirt maidens to win off a layoff of greater than 60 days at twice the average is very helpful compared to those that have yet to produce such a winner.

To my surprise my sire and broodmare sire stats are also very helpful in ALL races and not just maiden races. I could not imagine handcapping without my Race Reports where I put all these stats together in an easy-to-read format so at a quick glance I can compare one entrant to the others. I also have a trainer report for each track. Trainer stats are calculated in the same way as the sire and broodmare sire.

I thank my family and friends for allowing me to spend so much time on this passion of mine. All of the Breeding Winners logos are the work of my good friend Dan Weltsch. Please visit to view his other artwork.
