Most of the Japanese stallions are stunning (esp. Maurice, Lord Kanaloa & Epiphanaeia). Duramante's forelegs, however, don't look wonderful. IIRC, he had a history of injury. Wonder if those legs had anything to do with that? :?
Just a Way is too long-bodied and too shallow through the chest for my tastes...although that didn't seem to keep him from running really well. ;) :P

Unified's fetlocks look scary, and they buried his hooves in the grass :shock:

To be fair Lanes' End hides the hooves of all their horses. Coolmore, Claiborne and Airdrie do it too. It's a pet peeve of mine.

Both Duramente and Epiphaneia have terrible front legs. Maurice, Creator, Novellist and Lord Kanaloa have the best ones out of the bunch.
Japan sure has some handsome studs regardless of their legs though!

Both Duramente and Epiphaneia were retired due to front limb injury... whether their legs reflect that, or were structurally prone to cause injury, is admittedly a valid question for interested breeders. IMO Epiphaneia also looks like he might have been shifting his weight/moving as the photo was taken, since they aren't official conformation shots.

His legs look to have the same issues in his official confo shot, just slightly less further a part. (At least I was looking at how poorly aligned they are - over at the knee with weird angles particularly from the pastern in relation to the rest)

Yes, I believe that it's a new one of Creator(USA). :D
JBBA has renewed some of the stallions' conformaion photos recently (even though I don't know when exactly.. haha) on its Japanese homepage below.

https://jbba.jp/stallion/horse/

And these photos have been brought to JBIS Search.

Other JBBA stallions who seem to have new conformation photos posted on JBBA's homepage & JBIS are as follows:

Makfi(GB)

Cape Blanco(IRE)

Bago(FR)

I'd love to see some pics of the first Makfi crop foals, there are 101 listed at JBIS but I haven't seen any of them yet and none are in the July JBBA Select Foal Sale or the JRHA Select Sale, boo...

You mean his first Japanese crop? He stood in Great Britain/shuttled to NZ from 2011-2014 and in France from 2015-2016.

Here is his son Make Believe, at stud in Great Britain, whose first foals are yearlings of 2018

I like this informal shot of Deep Impact better than his official conformation shot... 8-)
