    Default NFC AFC Clubmead's Road Warrior "Fascinating Statistics"

    I was doing a little research in regards to Chopper offspring. This is the current derby list information as of the July 08 Retriever Field Trial News (does not include 2007).


    Of the 74 derby list dogs, 14 are Chopper puppies......19%.

    Of the 14 Chopper puppies to make the derby list they collectively accrued 286 points in 201 starts. Averaging 1.42 points per start.

    The 201 starts account for 144 ribbons, ribbons in 71.6% of the derbies entered.

    Those 14 Chopper puppies also accrued 34 wins.

    Lastly, 5 of the top 12 (41.6%) derby dogs are Chopper puppies.

    Offspring from Chopper's first breeding are already taking home ribbons in all age stakes.

    In history, has there ever been a sire with this kind of production record?

    Mike

    ps. This is why I have two young Chopper puppies and why we have bred Lotto to Chopper.


    pss. Other notable sires with puppies on the 08 derby list.... Auggie has 6-113 pts, Ranger has 2-55 pts, Tiger 3-83 pts, Pow 6-96 pts, Patton 2-29 pts, and Fargo 7-80 pts.

    I did not look at the stats....

    But curious if it's because he was the flavor of the week and so many had his pups (and therefor the market was flooded). OR is he truly a superstud that we should all be falling head over heels for...

    Don't rule him out just yet. He could throw goldens if matched with the right bitch....

    He wasn't the "Flavor of the Month" when I bred Star to him. Although he was very impressive when he was a finalist at the 05 National Am. He did however become popular after winning the National. To my knowledge and I follow this rather close, there has not been a time when the market was flooded with Chopper puppies. As to Hand's question, I believe he is a superstud. Give it one more year (maybe as soon as this fall) and I believe his first breeding will have all age points or titles.

    Mike, looking at your count of 14, I see that you counted my bitch "Moneybird's Black Magic Marker" in your stats. Her owner and breeding are stated incorrectly in RFTN. Her breeding is FC-AFC Esprit's Power Play x FC-AFC Trumarc's Lean Cuisine.

    It will have a marginal impact on your stats, but in the interest of accuracy...

    Having said that, I own an 8 month old male Chopper pup that's pretty nice. I decided to get him after watching a dog on Steve Blythe's truck, "Hit the Road Like a Warrior" now owned by Dennis Mitchell.

    I've got a 3 month old Chopper pup. She can jump on the tailgate by herself. I've never seen a puppy quite like her. I don't know if that's a good thing or not.
