I always loved Real Rockport's markings ... Very cool I think ... :)

She was a real hard trier too! I always played her in my bets.

Inquisitive Son has a reverse question mark as his blaze ... Hence his name ...

It's not really easy to make out in this pic I took ... But you can kind of see it ...

I don't know if this guy made it on the last page, but Silvery Moon is a 2 year old racing in Germany and France. You have to love his color. Here is one of his maiden races, someone took a bad spill at the break but he ran a decent second.

Pretty darn close to a textbook sabino there. :)

He looks like a paint horse and was very easy to follow throughout the race! :D
Give me that short lead, give me that win by a nose, get them all home safely!

Paint Us A Picture, a 2-year-old colt racing in Queensland, Australia, is making quite a name for himself, and it’s for more than just his racing ability.

The colt, like Germany’s Silvery Moon, is a rare overo Thoroughbred that was bred by Winning Colours Farm in Queensland. The colt won his first start, a 970 meter (4 furlongs 180 yards) barrier trial, on Oct. 8 at Callaghan Park.

Paint Us A Picture is by the stallion Profile in Style out of Coldstream Candy, by Thameen. Both Profile in Style and Thameen were bred in the U.S., and you can find such notables as Halo, Secretariat, and Roberto in their pedigrees.

Paint Us A Picture is trained in Queensland by John Pointon.

Lady Valentine, in training at GP.

Photo stolen from HRTV's FB page, which says: " A rare Thoroughbred registered as white, the 2-year-old filly has just a few dark freckle marks on her ghostly coat.

Lady Valentine is a daughter of Allamystique, a uniquely marked white stallion who is known for his colorful offspring. She is the first foal from the hard-knocking chestnut mare Evolutionary Lady, a winner of seven of 53 career starts."

That's a lot of blue on that white filly.

She has her own article on Paulick, with another photo. :D

If she doesn't make it as a racehorse, she'll be headed for the show ring. No claimers.

Couldn't pay me to show her! I had a horse with the fairly common "armor" markings (chest, flanks, ears) and he was a beast and a half to keep white for a show day. Having NO color to cover it up? Hah, nice try! ;)

That said, she's awfully cute. I'm so glad to hear there's a kid waiting for her when her racing days are over. That's a great fate for a horse.
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!

I'm amazed at how snowy white she is in the photo above...not a speck of dirt on her, except on that back hoof. She must have been bathed and groomed to a fair thee well before she stepped out on the track...and it looks like the photo was taken before she'd gone far.
And, yeah, keeping her that clean will be a full time job, because you know how much horses love to roll in the nearest patch of dirt. :D

I haven't backed through the thread to see if this has been posted before, but thought it might be of interest.

“Our analysis indicated that there are three major genes involved and that the complex interaction of these three genes determines the extent of white markings,” said Bianca Haase, PhD, genetics researcher at the University of Sydney and lead author of the study.

Thanks, Katewerk! That was interesting. Though I wish the study had drawn more applicable conclusions.

LOVE this thread! There's nothing prettier than a Chestnut Sabino TB in my opinion. I've always followed the stallions known to carry Sabino (Big Brown throws a lot of white as does Kittens Joy and Freud over their crops. Some of my favs currently racing are Shug's horse Imagining and Nikkis Sandcastle. Here's another one...
