He is often described as a `poor sire`.
But the fact that he appears in the pedigrees of the 2 most important TB-sires for international sporthorse-breeding : SON-IN-LAW - through DARK RONALD - and HURRY ON, might not be a coincidence.
His TB-son : ANARCH stood in Trakehnen.
The outstanding american TB-sire: BLUE LARKSPUR is 3x4 inbred to the THURIO daughter : PADUA. Also his get stands often in the type of a riding-horse.
The TB-sire: RELIC has the same 2nd dam, VAILA as BLUE LARKSPUR. VAILA is grand-daughter of PADUA by THURIO.
