We could go on at length about what we consider are the virtues of Pedlines, but we defer to the following endorsement.

"I've been breeding race horses for over 30 years and if you believe, as I do,
that the mare is the key to breeding horses that can run, then I urge you to read
Ellen Parker's Pedlines on a regular basis.
I think that she is one of the best and most rewarding pedigree authorities in the country."

--The late John Forsythe, actor-breeder-owner
