Eclipse II's Line

Author: Jana Nemeckova, published: 11th January 2018

Error report

The line was imported into the United States in 1859 with a bay colt named Eclipse II, a son of Orlando. And also never left ever since then, with the only exception: Flying Missel, a son of Equestrian, who was sent to Australia. In the United States, the line survived very tough early years, having only a straight line of successors from Eclipse via Alarm and Himyar to Domino. Domino died from meningitis after only two years at stud, and his son Commando succumbed to tetanus after only four seasons. Commando's son Peter Pan, fortunately, sired two great successors in Black Toney and Pennant. Pennant sired Equipoise, while Black Toney started an amazing army of stallions with Blue Larkspur, Broker's Tip, Balladier, and Bimelech. Their descendants were able to keep the line alive for the most of the 20th century.

Eclipse's line, like Bonnie Scotland's, has its sireline scheme already published.
