From the pic above I would refer to him as a liver chestnut

I agree he’s a liver chestnut, but Jockey Club only registers them as chestnut. He’s a pretty cool colour IMO.

Hmmmm is it true they refer to every dark coloured TB as bay?

I think the official designation is "Bay or Brown." That will cover everything from a light golden (nearly dun) bay to the very dark brown like Zenyatta. I've seen TBs registered as 'brown' who looked completely black to me, but apparently even a few brown hairs in the horse's coat will keep it from getting the rare 'black' designation. :P

With black points, yes. I’m 95% sure I have seen a registered brown horse... perhaps in a sales catalogue (?). Other pics of Accelerate he looks redder, I think his darker mane makes his colouring different. It’s almost maroon.

BEWARE!

COLLECTED COULD RUN AT SANTA ANITA AFTER SHARP DRILL

Bob Baffert was ebullient after multiple graded stakes winner Collected worked six

furlongs Monday morning in 1:11.40 under Joe Talamo.

The two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer is considering three options for the five-year-old son of City Zip: the Breeders’ Cup Classic; the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, both on Nov. 3; and Santa Anita’s $75,000 Comma To The Top Stakes for three-year-olds and up at one mile on Oct. 28.

“He went really well, really impressive,” Baffert said of the speedy chestnut, who defeated stablemate Arrogate in the 2017 Grade I Pacific Classic before running second to Horse of the Year Gun Runner in the Breeders’ Cup Classic.

“He looked like the old Collected. I had blinkers on him and Joe loved the way he went.”

Collected, winner of eight of 15 career races with earnings of $2,975,500, last raced on Sept. 22 when fourth as the 2-5 favorite in the Pennsylvania Derby Championship at Parx.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

There are bay, dark bay/brown, chestnut, and grey tb's. At least that has been what they are called on pedigrees and race programs. You can call them blood bay, red bay, light bay, light chestnut, whatever... the horse will be registered as the simple color designation. Damn people don't let you use any imagination, do they?🙄

There are colors I have seen on horses only once in a much traveled life. One riding stable I went to had a paint that you could only call green. He was the same color as Air Force olive drab fatigues. Very weird color. It was some off-dun color. Really different.

CaracortadA, not CaracortadO. :P
I don't know if she's related but, with that name, I hope so. :)

:oops: Ack, thank you! It was the Machowsky trainer and coloration that led me astray. The filly is not related, she is by First Dude out of a different dam (Florida bred).

Got a notification for his work too. He's one of my favorites and I hope he's back on track well.

I'd love to know why the owner(s) decided to name this gelding Very Very Stella. :oops:
Maybe they wanted a filly?

Cloud Computing returns in an allowance race this Thursday at Aqueduct, Race 6. He faces familiar names Hammerin Amber and Weather Wiz. Also in the race is Phipps’s Snap Decision, a son of Salute.

His first race back this year wasn’t that bad. Just a stepping stone. Not sure how much faith I have in him, but you know what? At least they’re trying.
