PonyBox Highest Jumpers
 By Winniefield Park   •   1st Mar 2020   •   605 views   •   1 comments
In some sports it’s thought that if you have a stallion, you might have a slight edge over competitors riding mares or perhaps even geldings. It’s certainly true for horse racing, where there are specific races for fillies and colts. One study done in 2018 suggests that stallions can outperform mares in eventing, but that the advantage of competing with a stallion was slight. Why this is so isn’t completely clear. There are many factors that go into making a top notch competitive horse including the human’s preferences, training and care methods.

So, is there a difference between mares, geldings and stallions on PonyBox.com? Geldings aren't a thing on Ponybox, so we don’t need to consider them. Taking a sample of the top 120 highest jumping horses competing on Ponybox right now shows an interesting result. Of the top 120 horses, 62 are stallions and 58 are mares. The top seven highest jumpers are all mares, and these include, Konakele, RSS ShotInTheDark, RSS Demo, TCE Vanquishing Act, Treasure, B*I Karma N Regrets and Witchwood. The six horses that hold the eight though thirteen spots are all stallions.

RSS ShotInTheDark

Both Konakele and RSS ShotInTheDark have reached high jumps of 101.25". Konakele is a 19 year old 13th generation mare owned by BMC General Store. She has achieved the very top rank, 19 records and has earnings of 6,967,150PB. Her X-ray assessment shows she is slowing down, but she certainly hasn’t stopped. She carries several DNA mods that contribute to her jumping performance including Fearless, Fetlock Feathers, Kangaroo and Pegasus. RSS ShotInTheDark is out of the RavenSS stables. She is out of Hello Incanto, who we’ve seen before. Her best rank so far is 10 and she has earned 1,052,900PB and she at Prime Time according to her X-ray Assessment.

Witchwood

The two highest jumping stallions are currently RSS He’s Electric and RSS Golden Harvest. RSS He’s Electric has a highest jump of 99.75”. He’s owned by RavenSS Stables and has earned 725,800PB. At 12 years old, his X-ray assessment shows he’s in Prime Time, so we could see more out of this horse. RSS Golden Harvest is a Thoroughbred owned by RavenSS Stables too. His best jump is 99.5" and has 463,300PB in earnings. He is 17 years old, and is by 10th generation B*I Man In Black out of 28th generation RSS Songbird.

So are Ponybox mares or stallions better jumpers? Based on the small sample of the top 120 horses, it appears that neither are strongly favored. There are slightly fewer mares in the top 120, but currently the mares are taking higher jumps. As in real life, there doesn't seem to be a definitive answer.
