The genetic information provided by the Equinome genetic tests can be applied at all stages of an individual horse's lifecycle to inform and optimise critical breeding, selection, purchasing and training decisions. It is important to note that this information should be used to complement other selection criteria.
• Determine whether a young horse is likely to be a more precocious yearling and early two year old, or a later-maturing type better suited to middle or longer distance races.
• Incorporate the Equinome Elite Performance Test as part of a selection strategy to identify with more certainty those individuals least likely to perform at an elite level, thereby significantly reducing management and training fees.
• Increase strike rate through optimised training schedules
• Support decisions on rehabilitation of young horses that suffer injury at an early stage with knowledge on their genetic potential
• Optimise your broodmare band by identifying the mares within your herd most likely to produce foals of the desired type
• Meet breeding objectives more consistently by selecting stallions with the most compatible Equinome Speed Gene type for each individual mare
• Attract and select the most compatible mares to enhance a stallion's profile, and maximise potential for young stallions to appear on first-season sire's list
• Inform decisions on the appropriate reserve prices for horses going for sale
