My profile picture from the inception of ABC was Ribot before it disappeared due to them moving to a new server.

From all the Turf horses I read about, Ribot, was the standout to me as he was undefeated in 16 starts, winning from 1000m to 3000m and winning 2 Arc's.

His breeder, was the legendary, Federico Tesio, "The Wizard of Dormello".

wow, fantastic to see. tesio was an absolutely incredible breeder. ribot and nearco from a broodmare band which seldom exceeded 5 in total. none of this modern day nonsense that a stallion needs 100 plus mares to make it commercially. breeders need to reaxamine his template of quality over quantity and maybe the current overproduction of horses with the attached welfare problems would be solved
