Savoy Stomp, the top-priced colt at the F-T Saratoga sale. Stunning.

He doesn't look a little long in the barrel to you?

Looks like a two-turn colt I'd like to be learning the game down in Ocala right now.

Can't remember whether or not this was posted before the forum crashed.

Looks like Freedom Child got his portrait taken shortly after he left the track...still has that greyhound-lean look about him. And he and El Padrino really have shiny copper-coin colored coats.
El Padrino's pinfire scars are very noticeable. Do you think that will turn off any potential breeders? Also, is it just the way the light is hitting the white stocking on his right rear leg, or does that leg look very lumpy? Bowed?

Yeah, El Padrino's legs are a mess. It explains his abbreviated career. But the people sending their mares to him aren't breeding to him because he's El Padrino, they're breeding to him because he's Verrazano's brother.

And maybe also because he's a decent son of the late Pulpit? :?:

There's no shortage of decent sons of Pulpit available, though. Besides the big two (Tapit and Sky Mesa) there's Parading, Stroll, Corinthian, and Ice Box.

18 starts, broke his maiden for 25K, one other win for 25K--pass, pass, pass.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

I think he might have some more leg than A.P. Indy.
