The grandsire of Mach Three is Direct Scooter. Direct Scooter is a Volomite line sire, and his dam Noble Claire is by the Volomite line trotting stallion Noble Victory . The grandsire of Wheres The Beach is French Chef, whose dam La Pomme Souffle is by the great Volomite line trotting stallion Nevele Pride. Armbro Nesbit, the sire of Beach Towel’s dam Sunburn, is by the Volomite sire line stallion Bye Bye Byrd. Armbro Nesbit is 3x4x5 linebred to Volomite. The pedigree of Somebeachsomewhere is also very heavy with Meadow Skipper bloodlines (4x5x4x5). The dam of Meadow Skipper, Countess Vivian, is by the Volomite line sire King’s Counsel.
Rocknroll Hanover is also a good choice because of multiple links to the Volomite line through his dam Rich N Elegant, who is by Direct Scooter. However, because of the strong influence of a 3×3 line breeding to Abercrombie that has no major Volomite connections and the lack of Meadow Skipper (Countess Vivian) in the maternal pedigree of Rocknroll Hanover, I would favor Somebeachsomewhere.
Mares with multiple major sire line crosses to Volomite would be good choices. These mares should have very smooth trotting gaits, good racing records, and long bodies. Somebeachsomewhere is a powerfully built horse. I would be careful about breeding very large mares to him. Like any experiment, I would expect some disappointing outcomes. However, I also believe that some very good horses would be produced. Think of a trotter with the speed and stamina of Somebeachsomewhere! It just might be possible.
