Obviously some stallions are known for throwing different traits- like size, character, collection, etc.
In talking to breeders, reading articles, or looking through offspring I have heard or deduced things like Jazz throws a great trot (but is also hot), Ferro passes a great canter and ability to sit, Rubinstein known for character and rideability, Weltmeyer stamps foals with lofty slow tempo trot, but can also be more temperamental. I would love this thread to become a collection of what traits top stallions tend to pass on, or even links to articles on the subject. We will obviously get differing opinions, but it takes years in the business to acquire some of this knowledge- would love to see people sharing it.
