Teddy's Sireline in the United States

Error report

Teddy began his stud career in the United States in 1932, at the age of 19. He was preceded by his French classic-winning son Sir Gallahad in 1926; Sir Gallahad's French-bred full brother Bull Dog started his stud career in the United States in 1931, and so did Gallant Fox, the American Triple Crown winner sired by Sir Gallahad. It's a great irony that the line survived for the most of the 20th century thanks to the third and the least-known son - whom Teddy sired in the United States, no less. Nowadays, young racing fans know Sir Gallahad mostly as the sire of Gallant Fox, and the grandsire of another Triple Crown winner Omaha. One of the most often associations, connected to Bull Dog, will be Nijinsky, whose damsire Bull Page was a tail-male descendant of Bull Dog. And the other will be Bull Lea's Triple Crown-winning son Citation. But who knows the name of this third son?

Sun Teddy spent only six years at stud, but his line led to Damascus, a son of Sword Dancer. Damascus's sons flooded the United States right about the time when the other branches disappeared, and the dynasty kept on two more decades thanks to Private Account. These days are gone now too, but still, Teddy's dynasty is a big part of the American racing history.
