Just wanted to know what everyone thinks of him? What traits does he pass on to his babies?
Wow where to start, motion, motion, very game. Better have a good trainer in mind those babies are something else

I have always heard one needs to breed a mare with a really good rear to him.
I personnally LOVE I'm a New Yorker!!:drool:

His horses have huge front-ends. I have seen a lot of his get with low-backs. :( Something I personally CANNOT stand in any horse no matter how high they can trot or how great their headset is.

This is one of my favorite subjects. :thumbup: I have a four-year-old by I'm A New Yorker and out of a The Sundrifter mare (classic Ruxer Farms "golden cross" breeding). The mare was a very nice show horse and very square off all four corners, excellent head set, but a little tight in her shoulder (limiting her front motion).
My four-year-old has a world of front end motion, decent hock that is continuing to get stronger, an amazing head-set, a wonderful attitude, and SMART.... and a short STRAIGHT back. I'm A New Yorker gave the colt athleticism and elegance. He has a true old-timey park trot and will be trimmed soon. He was a terror at two when he was still a stallion, but as soon as he was gelded, he turned into a pussycat. Pictures of the colt (I'm Southern) and mare (CH Sheeza Southern Belle) are on my web shots page (link on my profile). My guy has been slow to physically mature, but I attribute much of that to the mare's side.
If the mare had not died three years ago, she would have definitely been re-bred to I'm A New Yorker.
In general, I agree with the above assessment that they can be game and have a lot of talent.

I was looking for a longer neck and more front end as I have a mare who has great conformation and an incredible rear end.
I got a naturally gaited filly (he throws those as well) who is bigger than her mama, has a longer neck, has her daddy's head, is game as they come and now that she's learning to trot, is showing motion. Flaxen mane/tail, virtually no white on the legs (does a 2 inch spot on one coronet count?).
FLAT back. Could eat off of it. Definitely has a mind of her own - but that could come from mom as well as mom has Stonewall King in her.
I was at Nash Farms last winter and watched Mr.Nash work "New York Royale " to the Jog Cart / Very nice ,,,

I like mine. Mine is also naturally gaited. She is also special in the training department. Not a horse you want to pick a fight w/ but has great retention. Mine has no Sultan in her so I really prayed hard that she would be a she. Crossed her w/a little Sultan and I couldn't be more thrilled.

Seems lots of folks are having success doubling New Yorker through First Night Out, The New York Times, I'm a New Yorker, Harlem Globetrotter, etc.
