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).

Gold Standard is kinbred 5x6 Another Love x Daily Double.
Trippi’s 4th dam Only The Loyal is close kin to New South Wales, damsire of Gold Standard’s grandam Olympic Duel. Only The Loyal’s dam Another Love is by Tudor Minstrel, who is close kin to Olympic Duel’s dam Mashka.
Daily Double is close kin to Belle Of All (grandam of New South Wales), and closer still to Mumtaz Begum (dam of Nasrullah who is sire of Belle Of All).
Suitable lines for Gold Standard could include:
- elements from New South Wales, incl Abernant (Fair Trial & Court Martial clan), descendants of Marchetta (Aurora, Rose Red & Sweet Lavender, Lavendula), descendants of Lady Josephine (Mumtaz Mahal, Mumtaz Begum & Lady Juror);
- elements from Double Life (through Doubleton, Persian Gulf (Persian Wonder), Precipitation);
- Bull Lea (as in Nijinsky (Dancing Champ), in combination with descendants of La Troienne (widespread, in the Trippi context Complete Warrior, Seattle Slew);
- Lomitas (sire of Silvano) whose sire Niniski is close kin to Dancing Champ, and whose 3rd dam Love In is close kin to New South Wales.
