Horse Racing/5-h


hello sir. sorry to say, i didnt understand the female family 5-h regarding thoroughbred bloodlines. in "5-h", i believe that "5" mean 5 generations. but, i didnt understand "h". what is it?

Hi Rohit:

I don't know how to  put it any simpler - the 5 does not stand for anything by itself and the h does not stand for anything by itself - the "5h" is a female family designation as shown on the table that is at this url  On that page, under English Families, if you click on the "5h", you will see the family that "5h" belongs to as shown on that page and I list it here

I hope this helps...

I can answer all questions regarding the sport of gambling on either or both thoroughbreds and greyhounds - beginning with the initial handicapping process with regard to decisions on which horse or dog to wager, through the wagering process, and ending with the results and profits or losses from those wagers. See my website at


I have worked in thoroughbred tracks and greyhound tracks for the last 30 years and have been highly successful in making profits from my own handicapping systems, both in sales of my systems, and use of my systems in the wagering process. I publish and sell a "Tip Sheet" for any track in the continental United States, Canada, and one greyhound track in Mexico.
