When it comes to racehorse breeding, genetics is critical.

To understand the importance of genetics in horseracing lets look at some of the winners of the Kentucky Derby. A total of twelve Kentucky Derby winners have sired Derby winners, including three triple crown winners who have gone on to sire Kentucky Derby winners.

Zippy was born into a racing royal family. His grandfather was a Kentucky Derby winner. But I guess he didn't get that "racing" gene.
