Risen Spirit just ran (unplaced) in the first at Tampa Bay Downs, 7F $8k maiden claimer. Caught my eye due to his white- flaxen coloring that extended to the mane, making him look almost palomino.

Anyone else ever seen this animal?

No pics, alas.

He looks like the great sprinter, Apache Cat. Wonder if they're related?

I watched that race and didn't even notice. Bloodhorse has some clearer pics:

I didn't even notice the spots when I watched the race...probably thought they were just kickback from the muddy track. They're much clearer on the Bloodhorse pix...thanks for the link.

Thought I would add pictures of my colt to this thread, he came out with lots of white ticking throughout his coat!

What a handsome fellow, BC. You must be very pleased. And in addition to all of his white ticking he does have rather unique facial markings.
