    Striking Thunder was the horse by Khans Thunder that won 42,000 Brodie, your bloke was the 2nd highest stakes earner.

    On the racing side of things JustBilly, did you know Brian Gath, from Victoria, travelled over to America to drive Genghis Khan in the world's richest harness race? I think it was late 1970's.

I also believe Khans Thunder's sire is Genghis Khan, who was also successful.

    I would love if anyone can give me some info/pictures ect. He'd be quite aged or deceased, by I am very intrigued about my boy's sire, and his sire. Thank you.

    One of the owners has a big horse property near here. I don't know them personally or if Khans Thunder retired there. I send you a private message with their details in case you want to contact them. Tipping they'd have plenty of pictures of him!

    Hi again Brodie, are you using Billy for riding?
    His dam Barwick (a NZ bred mare) could not have been easy to breed from
    From 9 seasons in the breeding barn she only produced 3 foals - you probably have seen that yourself on the HRA site by clicking on Billy's dam

    You have to go to the NZ site to research his earlier dams
    Here is the link to his second dam Hestitant

    http://harness.hrnz.co.nz/gas/wa/r/i...e&Arg=Hesitant

    Click on 'Progeny' under her name to see them listed
    Just click on Hesitant's dam name to go back further and then hers etc to go back as far as you like

    His 3rd dam, Regal Belmer is the closest direct line relative to make it on ClassicFamilies

    http://classicfamilies.net/HorseDeta...rseID=10016525

    But if you go right back to his 6th dam Purple Patch and click on her Descendants

    http://classicfamilies.net/CF/Descen...rseID=10016035

    and click on all those + boxes you will see all the stars in Billy's maternal family tree

    He belongs to this maternal family N15 (not Khans Thunders)

    http://classicfamilies.net/cf/Family...meGroup&AD=ASC

    There are some nice horses that he is a distant relative of

    Champion trotter Knight Pistol shares Billy's 6th dam Purple Patch

    Smudge Bromac who has won a couple of Country Cups this season and is still racing very well is a reasonably close relative as he shares Billy's 3rd dam Royal Belmer (as his 4th dam)

    What placing did Genghis Khan come overall? One of the pacers went out of stride.

    Genghis Khan was the Winner in 1982, The race was only run for a few years before it was discontinued.
