The 16.3 hand, rangy 1967 Horse of the Year in England, Busted, was undefeated stakes winner that year of the top staying races, his ability to accelerate when necessary key to his success. He got some winners over fences, including Convinced, Jobroke and Field Conqueror, but it was his flat-racing sons who sired some really top jumpers. Stakes-winning son Erin's Isle got the popular two-time American Grand National winner Rowdy Irishman; son Balak got National winner Seagram; son Crash Course (Doncaster Cup, second Ascot Gold Cup) got Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Jodami, National winner Rough Quest, Irish Grand National winner Maid of Money, and Esha Ness, winner of the voided National race of 1993; stakes-winning son Bustino (St. Leger, also leading sire) was grandsire of Bobbyjo, who won both the Irish Grand National and the Grand National at Aintree.
