    the kind of color I wished I could have stuck my arrogant cousin with to diagram the markings, when things were low tech: paper and pencil!

    awesome!

    Yes, it will be interesting to see how he runs. The breeding program he came from is known for breeding for color before breeding for speed, but he's got a decent pedigree, with AP Indy and Riva Ridge close up and a bunch of old school runners farther back: Northern Dancer, Swaps, Mr. Prospector, Roberto just to name a few.

    He'll make a nice sporthorse if he's too slow. Hell, I wouldn't mind having him in my barn!

    ahhhh, he's cute. Just like his trainer I take it he hasn't started yet?

    I remember watching her when she was racing. She's pretty, but I think it's hilarious that she's registered with JC as "white". http://www.flickr.com/photos/creepy_coyote/2585496551/

    He ran at Turf Paradise? That's my closest track!

    He may be small now, but his sire is 17 hands and if I remember right his dam is fairly big.

    He's lovely, and I wouldn't kick him out of my barn, but dear God, I have a hard enough time keeping my current light colored horse clean...I can't imagine trying to keep this guy spotless!
