    I know Relic is used more for sport in Europe than here, but still I don't think I've ever seen 5 male lines in the fifth to him. Screams "sport" to me.

    I am pretty luke warm on this guy.

    Powerscourt is a nice stud... but the video... not showing many glimpses that he's going to be "Fabulous" once his muscles relax..

    Pedigree is lovely. The bottom is practically the British/ Irish recipe for chasing. He has Wild Risk top and bottom . Buisson Ardente is specially good on the bottom, as is Roan Rocket on the top. Blue Peter on the first page is rare also.

    I watched the video and liked his walk. Lots of overstep, I think, but most of it was so dark it was hard to really see. He's got more knee action than most TBs that I've seen, and the trot is the gait that can be the most improved with training. Could not see much of the trot because of the dark video. but he has knee action there as well as at the walk.

    In the video he was extremely long, foot wise. We have him here, trimmed his feet, and he positevely floats!! Had a group of people standing around when we turned him back out, wish I had recorded a few of the oooohs and awes! First steps were very cautious, so suspect he was pretty uncomfortable.

    He is very well put together. Was hoping the pedigree was one that screamed sport. Lol. We arethinking he might be a pretty nice guy!
