I wonder when that was taken, because he looks even more babyish than he does in the official pic on the Ocala Stud website.

This was taken when Jess's Dream was a 2 year old... it is definitely not new :)

Ah ok well that's good because he doesn't look particularly good in that photo! I just saw it on Facebook, I'll pay closer attention next time!

It sure is a shame what happened to this boy at the track.

Creator is gorgeous, but would like to see a bigger hind end.

I hate to criticize horses who were very successful, but Tamarkuz' neck looks either short or just odd.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

I think it's the way he's standing.

He's not stood up as well in my pic as he is in the official pic (and mine is also 10 months old), but he definitely has a short neck. Just not quite as awkward as in his conformation pic.

Part of it is that he has a lot of muscle on the underside of his neck and not much up top. He could use some dressage work. :lol: But yeah, I think he'd still be working against his conformation.

Chrome looks beautiful. Relaxed and not needing the chain in his mouth. Good to see. Word is he's been well received in Chile and is doing his usual professional job covering his mares. Thanks for posting the photo.

I'm always so pleasantly surprised by how nicely put together Chrome is. I've always liked him (a lot, if any of you were in his Belmont thread...lol), but he sure is a handsome fella.

Is it just me, or are Anchor Down and Karakonite both standing on a slight hill? I don't know, it just seems like they're not getting an even surface to show off on. Or they're both very similarly butt high.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!
