Pedigree

Gimmethegreenlight’s significant female line ancestors are Oriens (by Hyperion) and closer up Victory Piper. The latter is kinbred 2x1 Red Briar x Sweet Victory, with Hyperion a significant line in both. Red Briar is from the Red Ray branch of the Black Ray female line. Also from this female line is Blushing Groom, who can provide interesting links to Gimmethegreenlight, notably through his son Jallad who carries a host of other elements also present in Red Briar and Victory Piper. Rainbow Quest is another Blushing Groom son who kin-links to Gimmethegreenlight’s bottom female line.

Suitable Lines

Suitable mares for Gimmethegreenlight could include:

  • Blushing Groom, notably Jallad (and his female line, the Petrava family), Rainbow Quest (Saumarez, Spectrum), & Blushing Groom as sire of females.
