Very handsome. The Storm Cat/Galileo ingredients really came together nicely in Diogenes. :D

Boy, him and Declarationofpeace look alike. Serena's Cat throws some absolutely gorgeous babies.

Someone was researching Serena's line today :D

3 of the last 4 go directly back to her- Puissance De Lune - goes back to her full sister- Serena's Sister

Not new and sorry if its been discussed before but why would Coolmore use this as Power's conformation photo? He has 3yos racing, its not like he is new off the track.
He was injured in the St. James Palace in 2012, when The Nile brokedown infront of him, but Power finished the race. There has to be something up if they dont want to show his conformation.

I don't know why Coolmore uses that photo, but the farm where he stands in NZ has a conformation photo of him.

He's a handsome horse in both photos, but...that right front leg doesn't look wonderful, especially around the knee. :?

Could be either/both the angle of the photo and the fact that his knee is slightly bent.

Welcome to the forum, Donnerhall, and thanks for posting the photo of Torok.

I agree he does have presence and has an athletic, robust look about him.

Thank you. He is doing a great job as a young sire in my country and I wanted to ask your oppinons about his confirmation.

He is very attractive. Where is he standing? And is his dam's name actually Red Ransom, or is he out of a Red Ransom mare?

While I don't consider myself a conformation expert, Torok is certainly a handsome, well-balanced horse. Lovely head and again, a tremendous presence about him. His sire, Singspiel, was an excellent racehorse with an outstanding pedigree. Singspiel unfortunately died at the same age (18) and from the same disease (laminitis) that killed Secretariat. Torok's dam has a solid pedigree also.
