By Ken McLean

POINT GIVEN was a versatile Champion and Horse of the Year - yet I believe he has not been exploited fully. He has sired major winners out of mares from the lines of Blushing Groom, Seattle Slew, Northern Dancer, In Reality, Broad Brush, Roberto, Star de Naskra, Ribot, and the Nasrullah/Princequillo nick. His two best sons are out of Nijinsky II and Nureyev granddaughters, and I feel he needs mares with Nijinsky II (as his sire is out of a Storm Bird mare).

POINT GIVEN suits medium-framed mares because he can add bone and substance to his progeny, yet he does tend to throw to the mare's physical attributes. I think he will especially benefit from more Turn-to.
