I live in Victoria, Australia which is touted by many today as the 'Capital of Greyhound Racing'. Breeding was very much a terrific hobby for me when I started out about 8 years ago after owning and part owning about 70 reasonable to average type racedogs with various acquaintances and friends for a little over 20 years. This experience has provided me an enormous grounding into this great sport of greyhound racing. Looking at my 30 years into the sport, I have now completed the full circle of owning, training, professionally betting and now the breeding of greyhounds. Ah yes - It's been a fantastic ride.
(i) brood analysis
(ii) pedigree analysis with a view to purchasing pups or near 'ready to race' dogs
(iii) stud analysis
(iv) pup auction evaluation.
The best way I can describe how my interest into breeding grew was that I saw, or more importantly didn't see any structure with greyhound breeding. The more I talked to everyday people in the sport the more I found that many of their ideas and thoughts about breeding greyhounds were very generally based rather than being specific.
What I can do for any breeder in line with my findings, is linebreed their bitch primarily and intensely through littermates in the x path in the hope of breeding a racer that is competitive on the eastern seaboard of Australia.
I say hope because breeding is an inexact science as most of us know, however I feel that if your bitch has what it takes to successfully make the transition from race bitch to brood bitch I can try to help her further by linebreeding her in a similar way to how some of those champion and x factor type racers were bred on my 'List of Intensity'.
This as I found with my research, was the effect x path linebreeding had on Australin racers with what I call my 'List of Intensity'
To Whom it may concern
I have discussed hundreds of pedigrees with RYAN VANDERWERT, and his knowledge is second to none.
Ryan's specialised approch to each individual mating is what stands him out from the crowd. If you not only want to breed winners, but also understand the fundementals behind the
plan - then Ryan's service is for you.
I can confidently recommend racingpedigrees.com as experts in their field.

Dear Racing Pedigrees Dot Com
I used to look at breeding fairly one dimensionally like a lot of people checking to see if a sire was doubled up here or a particular nick there but after talking to Ryan my mind was opened to a some brilliant new ways to view breeding. His meticulous approach and thorough knowledge of pedigrees for many generations really helped to open my eyes to some things I had never before considered. I can now approach my breeding program with a far more specific approach to what I'm targetting in a mating which I think can and will make all the difference to my future success."
