12/17/16 Wild Wind's stallion legacy, part 5

This week's post looks at some of the stallions, past and present, that trace back to that great broodmare, Wild Wind.  The quest continues to convince the readers that she was one of the most influential broodmares in the American Saddlebred breed.  The past few weeks have looked at her daughters in the BHF and the produce of some of her daughters and granddaughters.  There will be some redundancy in this post since many of these stallions have been listed as offspring to her famous daughters, but stallions tend to have better name recognition than a good broodmare, so this post will put many of her good stallions all in one place. In 2010, Wild Wind was the tail female line for five stallions on the Saddle & Bridle Sire list with her descendants Harlem Globetrotter (#4), Castle Bravo (#16), Northern Blues (#26), Kalarama's Spanish Dancer (#30) and Yorktown Magic (#43) were all on the list at the same time.  Supreme Heir would have topped the list of deceased sires that year.   Stallions still in the breeding game today are highlighted in yellow, so you can find a nice stallion to get a couple drops of that Wild Wind blood in your next colt.  It sure can't hurt.
