Gun Runner is absolutely plain in every way, with some long legs. I would never look at that horse and think multiple G1 champion.

Classic Empire looks very... stiff. I do not like how he is put together. Dortmund is a nice looking horse. Mr Z's pasturns are scary, but the rest of him may look better as he fills out.

I thought Gun Runner was tremendous in person. If it were between him and Arrogate, I'd pick him every day and twice on Sunday.

I agree that Gun Runner is much better looking (and a prettier runner) and even seeing them on TV compared to each other at BC Runner was a better-looking horse. Which is why I'm surprised he looked so ordinary in that picture and made my comment.

Just curious - did you ever see Gun Runner in person - up close and personal? If so, and you can still agree with what you wrote, well..... oh, never mind. There was nothing ordinary about his conformation photo.

No I haven’t seen him in person, and yes he does look ordinary in that picture.

That’s not a knock against the horse. I love Runner and Im a huge fan. But he looks mighty plain and average in that picture.

I haven't seen him in person, but I've been impressed with photos and video of Gun Runner. I'd also pick him over Arrogate - who I think is very typical of an Unbridled's Song... and for me, that's not a good thing.

Kobe's Back is a Pretty Pony, even if he seems a bit long in the back to my eye.
Bradster is nicely balanced, although he's so filled out he looks like he's been standing at stud for years. :P

Bradester is beautiful. I don't really care for Kobe's Back, although he is a lovely grey color.
