Maurice is a very attractive guy, and as usual Orfevre is stunningly beautiful. Does he ever have a bad hair day? :D

No, he doesn't! ;)

And today Orfevre(JPN) sired his first graded winner, as his 2yo filly Rock This Town(JPN)[o/o Stray Cat(JPN) by Storm Cat(USA)] won in the G3 Sapporo Nisai Stakes 1800m turf at Sapporo beating the boys.
He became the first first-crop-sire in Japan to sire grade stakes winner this year!

Sapporo Racecourse invited Gold Ship (JPN) back to parade as a special guest... he's suspiciously mellow throughout much of the vid, then totally hams it up with the camera. :mrgreen:

And then I saw additional photos via @nabecci... yup, Gold Ship. :lol: (His racetrack groom got to say hello again, which made me happy 8-) )

He is one handsome devil, though.

It looks like Gold Ship didn't disappoint anyone. :lol: :lol:
And, yes, it was great to see him reunited with Mr Takatoshi Iwanami. :D

Maybe I'm just too cranky on this hot, muggy morning, but I don't find his behavior very funny. :? Let alone admirable.
That stallion is firing with bad intent. I don't envy his handlers; they need to manage him so he can be led around and keep him from hurting himself. All while trying to not get nailed by one of those kicks, or by a foreleg when he rears.
He's a gorgeous horse who clearly had a load of talent, so I know there are plenty of breeders sending mares to him. But....he's such a bastard. I'd be praying that he doesn't pass THAT on to his offspring.

I think there's a difference between finding an image amusing and condoning misbehavior. He was actually fairly well-behaved in the parading videos I've seen, although he did get restless when held at a standstill in the middle of the paddock surrounded by people (and no other horses) and did some cow-hopping and kicking. And it wasn't aimed at his handlers, he just wanted to be done.

I don't think there was any argument, either, that his mindset & antics on the track interfered with his talent. Hopefully the mares he was booked to will mellow that temperament in his get, but US breeders have done the same thing. Orfevre's filly Rock This Town is a fiesty one, too, but it didn't stop her winning...

Sorry you've got the heat & humidity too... it was 96F here already at 9am when I went out to water my dwarf fruit trees. :? Hope you can stay cool!

He is not firing off with bad intent. If he were, trust his head would be much lower to the ground or bracing against his handlers, and both his front feet would be firmly planted on the ground.
He's expressing his displeasure, and whilst I agree it is poor manners there's only so much they can do. I don't think they should set up the horse for failure by prolonging things that test his patience for instance, but I do not see any malice in his body language on any of those pictures.
