Legendary Lover K.
The Elitlopp entries are drawn, and one of the last to enter was Dane-American Legendary Lover K.. His pedigree is interesting in many ways, but let's first establish that this is an extremely inbred horse. Legendary Lover K. is inbred 2+(3+4) to Speedy Crown and 3+(4+5+6) to Star's Pride, with extra infusion of both Speedy Scot and Worthy Boy. The inbreeding coefficient amounts to 19.37 % (now 19.39 %, after some pedigree completion, translator's note). This means he outcompetes even C.R.Kay Suzie (17,05 %), which has been much discussed as an incestuously inbred horse.
Legendary Lover K. was sold for inexpensive $3,200 as a yearling. Both sire Armbro Goal and sire of dam Speedy Somolli was more appreciated in Europe than in America, and the maternal family wasn't exactly hot. First dam Legendary Love was unraced and has also produced B.J.'s Legacy 2:02.1 $48,798 and BJ Brady who has won lots of races in Iowa but only earned $30,000. Second dam B J's Love 2:00.2 $17,889 was stakes placed and has produced BJ's Predator 1:57.1 $99,455. She is also second dam of the fast Sent from Above 1:54.2 $116,350. Third dam Sophia Lobell was unraced but produced two $100,000 trotters, Lungistics 1:57.4 $164,108 and Silvia Kosmos 2:02.3 $115,000. Sophia Lobell is a twin sister of Shawn Lobell, who produced C.Lewis Lauxmont 1:57.4 $260,028 in USA and Apollon Ikeline 1:59.2 806,515 SEK after exportation to Sweden. These twins have a famous half brother in Hambletonian winner Steve Lobell 1:56.2 $383,019.
Armbro Goal as sire and Speedy Somolli as sire of dam may seem like an odd cross as they both have identical sire, sire of dam and sire of second dam. At closer look, the results from this cross are more than ok. From 23 foals there are apart from Legendary Lover K. Friendly Star 1:57.1 $117,334, Little Supersister 2:00 $117,133, U.S.Far Ahead 1:58.3 $62,443 and Unscheduled 1.57.
Sire of Legendary Lover K.'s second dam is Arndon, a name often associated with a fantastic gait but also much warmth. Legendary Love is the result of a Speedy Somolli mare crossed to Arndon, a mix that also produced no less than Pine Chip. It is not new that Arnie Almahurst crossed perfectly to Armbro Goal.
