Djebel - Breeding


Djebel was sired by Tourbillon, a stallion owned by Marcel Boussac, who had won the French Derby and the Prix Lupin, and went on to become a notable sire. Toubillon's dam-sire was the 1914 Derby winner Durbar. Djebel's dam, Loika, was by Gay Crusader and out of Coeur a Coeur. Gay Crusader was the 1917 U.K. Triple Crown winner, and by the influential Bayardo. Coeur a Coeur was by Teddy, whose grandsire was the 1899 English Triple Crown champion Flying Fox. Therefore, Djebel traced back to Bay Ronald twice through his dam (both Bayardo and Teddy's dam-sire were by Bay Ronald). Loika produced seven winners, the greatest of which was Djebel.

Famous quotes containing the word breeding:

    Not everyone knows how to be silent or to leave in good time. It happens that even people of good breeding fail to notice that their presence provokes in the weary or preoccupied host a feeling akin to hatred, and that this feeling is tensely concealed and covered up with lies.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    The breeding we give young people is ordinarily but an additional self-love, by which we make them have a better opinion of themselves.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    A man’s own good breeding is his best security against other people’s ill-manners.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
