Charmayne was in a no win situation. If she ran him and he wasn't as good as Scamper, people would have hung the horse out to dry over it. As much as it cost to create that horse, would you really want to risk injury by running him when your sole purpose was to use him for the genetics he had? Doubtful.
Actually all but one of the FG clones were gelded I believe. So that sort of blows the theory of them being for semen only.
Blaise Bercequey has been running her Red Man Bay clone. He was doing pretty good but got injured. I'm not sure if he's healed yet or not.
Ditto, the Latte clone has been doing well.
A friend of mine has ridden two get of the Hotshot clone. She said both were very talented and athletic. She's a fan as far as his siring abilities are going.

The FG clones were for semen. That is my opinion. Personally, I would not spend the money to breed to FG because of the clones
I originally had the same thought, but I honestly don't think they'd risk getting caught and they are so sparing on the frozen they offer I would think they would offer more if the well wasn't running dry.
I took a chance and I've got one due May. I've always wanted to breed to him so I'm excited.

I don't think AQHA would register them if they were not by FG himself, last I checked they aren't accepting clones as AQHA sires?
They would have no way of knowing. The DNA would be the same.
I guess you're right...
I wonder if aqha is still registering babies by FG then simply for this reason. How would they know
