Texas Red is a very well-balanced, attractive horse. My first thought looking at him through my equestrian eyes is "I'd ride him!" :)

I know she's not a stallion, but... Soul Stirring JPN (Frankel x Stacelita) is pretty as a picture, no?

She looks like one of those classic oil paintings of thoroughbreds. Can't wait to see her mature.

Soul Stirring resembles her dam. I like that her maternal grandsire is the great German stallion Monsun, mostly because he is can be a valuable source of outcrossing (hybrid vigor).

Hybrid vigor is a misused term/concept. It only applies to interspecies crosses - Mules, Ligers, Coywolves, Wolfdogs etc. Would be hybrids. Two horses of different breeds wouldn't be, much less two of the same breed from different lines.
Outcrossing to a different line does increase genetic diversity and heterozygousness, but it's not hybrid vigor.

He gets that from his sire. His legs looked like tree trunks- the most solid I have ever seen in a TB.

I love Americain- such a stunning individual.

He covered 50 mares last year.


The yearling Americains in this sale, for the most part, look to me to be on the sturdier side... :mrgreen:

Chunky little guy, isn't he? Beautiful head, showing that Arabian lineage, but that belly looks like a well-fed Welsh Cob's. :lol:
