KIN-BREEDING: Trippi’s pedigree strongly resembles the one of leading US sire Distorted Humor, and similarities extend into the best US progeny of both sires. Key material required in mares for Trippi shows a high incidence of descendants of La Troienne or Bull Lea (Rose Leaves). Also significant in the local SA context is Trippi’s 4th dam Another Love (by Tudor Minstrel).
