View Catalogue Style Pedigree

Betterthancheddar possesses a unique pedigree being bred 3 x 3 to Cam Fella. He also has duplications of Albatross and Tar Heel on X Factor lines and comes from the same maternal family as Knight Dream and Badlands Hanover.

 Also of note is that his third dam is bred 3 x 3 to Volomite.

Given his 3 x 3 cross to Cam Fella we really believe mares from “outcross” type sirelines will suit Betterthancheddar.

This includes sirelines such as Direct Scooter, Abercrombie, Classic Garry and Falcon Seelster.

Direct Scooter line stallions include In The Pocket, Christian Cullen, Mach Three, Courage Under Fire, Stoneridge Scooter, Julius Caesar, Ok Bye, Deal Direct and Direct Flight.

Abercrombie line stallions include Art Major, Astreos, Grinfromeartoear, Artiscape, Albert Albert, Real Desire, Sportswriter, Modern Art, Life Sign, Dream Away, Pacific Rocket, Fully Loaded, Peace Of Art, Panorama, Fitch II, Crouch, Orange Sovereign, etc.

Betterthancheddar’s sire Bettor’s Delight has left some very nice horses out of Albatross line mares. This type of mare could work with Betterthancheddar also.

Such Albatross line stallions include Soky's Atom, Holmes Hanover, Vance Hanover, Butler BG, Vanston Hanover, Talk About Class, etc.

We would recommend that any Albatross line mare contain little, if any Most Happy Fella blood through her maternal pedigree.

The Cam Fella / No Nukes cross has been very successful the world over and we believe it can work also for Betterthancheddar.

Potential No Nukes line stallions include Western Ideal, Safely Kept, Village Jasper, Live Or Die, American Ideal, Caprock, Badlands Hanover, Ticket To Heaven, Metropolitan, Barnett Hanover, Union Guy, Kinney Hanover, Northern Lights, etc.

Badlands Hanover would be particularly interesting given he and Betterthancheddar are from the same family.

As with Albatross line mares we would recommend that the mare contain little if any further Most Happy Fella blood through her maternal pedigree.

We would also recommend looking to reinforce some of the terrific blood Betterthancheddar possess on his maternal side, that being Tar Heel, Adios, Albatross, Volomite and Scotland.

Mares with that blood in their pedigree should be considered for Betterthancheddar.
