Danzig and Nureyev Lines in 2009

These two continue to have an influence on the elite of the sport in 2009. Danzig lines contributed to seven of the top 3 finishers in the Breeders Cup while Nureyev contributed four.

In the world rankings there are 4 direct male descendants of Danzig in the top 10 males in the world including number one ranked Sea The Stars. The number one ranked female (second overall) Goldikova is a also great-granddaughter of Danzig. Nureyev has two descendants in the top 13 in the world rankings including number 3 ranked Rip Van Winkle and a direct male descendant in Presious Passion.
